The Nissan Lannia is based on the new Nissan MFA platform. Power will come from various 1.6, 1.8, and 2.0 four-cylinder petrol engines, but Nissan hasn’t disclosed any details yet.

The Lannia will be manufactured in China by the long-running Dongfeng-Nissan joint venture that makes a wide range of Nissan-branded cars for the Chinese car market. The Lannia is expected to launch near the end of this year, with a price starting around 150.000 yuan.

The C-pillar is arguably the most interesting and most controversial aspect of the Lannia’s design. Nissan calls the design language ‘V-Motion’, for showing movement when standing still. well…. the rear lights are kinda hip.

    If this is a China-only Nissan, made by the Dongfeng-Nissan joint venture or DFL, wouldn’t that make it a Dongfeng Lannia?
