Teana is one of the most wonderful cars in this segment, the luxury is great, the rear passenger headrests are something to boast about.

I am quite disappointed with their planning of launching CBUs still in India.

Importantly, Nissan ought to work on more market relevant products. Read = hatchbacks & C segment sedans.
Yup, waiting for them to launch Micra in India.

Also, do the hotels buy these cars from abroad ? If they buy from local dealer then still will they be exempt from cutoms import duties ?

Nope, they buy the cars locally itself (most deals routed directly through manufacturer).

Does it have height adjustable driver seat. And is the driver and passenger seat powered? At this price, I think Nissan is targetting CR-V.

Yes. The driver's seat is height adjustable and the passenger seat is electrically adjustable only in the XV model. It is a three layer ventilated seat.

@Sarvodaya: The driver and co passenger seats are electrically adjustable but only the drivers seat has electric height adjust.

Consider this, Nissan has dealership in 7-8 cities vs 45 for Mitsubishi. It is a long road ahead for Nissan to catch up. Their Teana & X trail are good vehicles, brutally overpriced in India and hence flop show. BTW, how many do they sell every month, I doubt if the numbers are above 20 nation wide.

Another global giant bites dust in our country.
