This week in the EFTM Garage we have a ‘Blade Silver’ Nissan Dualis TS Diesel. Before any comprehensive review here’s how it looks at first glance.
Variant: TS Diesel with 6 speed manual.
Major Options or inclusions: 1.6-litre turbo-diesel sourced from Renault which features stop / start function. Reversing camera and sensors, five-inch colour screen with satellite navigation. Rear privacy glass, 17-inch alloy wheels, six-speaker stereo and Bluetooth connectivity.
Wow Factor: Unique compact hybrid hatchback / SUV design. Appealing looks.
Impressive: Great fuel efficiency, currently averaging 5.8-litres / 100km. Compliant handling.
Not so impressive: No auto available (on Diesel variant). $4000 premium over equivalent ST Petrol model. No climate control.
