Grand Livina Pros & Cons

Things We Like in Grand Livina

The Nissan Grand Livina, for a compact MUV, has a generous cabin which is spacious enough to seat all seven passengers in all the three rows with ease. Thanks to a boxy design, the Grand Livina has impressive headroom, apart from good knee room and legroom in both second and third row. The dual-tone black and beige interior theme, as well as large glasses on the sides, further enhance the airiness of the cabin

The suspension, both front, and rear, of the Nissan Grand Livina, is setup on a softer side, which along with large 15-inch wheels do make it a comfortable and stable place to be in.

Things We Dont Like in Grand Livina

Both the exterior as well as interior styling of the Nissan Grand Livina feel very dated for an MUV of its class. The boxy design, lack of modern features in and out and a dated theme for the interior dashboard design makes it look outdated.

The 1.6-litre petrol engine in the Nissan Grand Livina isn’t as powerful and technically advanced as it seems on the paper. Also, the fuel efficiency too isn’t quite up to the mark.

Recent Updates of Grand Livina

Nissan launched the 2019 Grand Livina in Indonesia at the start of this year and it will soon be seen roaming on the streets of Malaysia as well. Based on the Mitsubishi Xpander, this MPV gets a bowl-shaped grille at the front with sleek LED DRLs that make the Livina look stylish and modern. The interior of the Livina has a very simple layout but offers a generous amount of space to its occupants. All the three rows provide ample headspace and legroom to the passengers to ensure a comfortable journey. The Grand Livina is available with two engine options in the Malaysian market – the 1.6- litre 4-cylinder engine produces 105 PS of power and 153 Nm of torque while the 1.8-litre 4-cylinder engine makes 126 PS of power and 178 Nm of torque. The Nissan Grand Livina is available in the following variants – 1.6L MT (RM 82,195), 1.6L AT (RM 89,800) and 1.8L AT (RM 99,800).

Grand Livina Overview

There was a time in the first decade of 21st century when the market for compact MPVs was at an all-time high. Seeing the instant rise in the sales of such vehicles, Nissan too jumped in the bandwagon and showcased its premium compact MPV, the Grand Livina. For the first time in 2006, the South East Asian countries were being targeted as the primary markets. With its slightly overhung body translating into more interior room, the Grand Livina became a success story. It provided all the benefits of an MPV, but with a shorter carpet area. In the Malaysian market, the Grand Livina is being offered with a choice of two petrol engines with two transmission options and a host of five colors – Graphite Blue, Bronze Gold, Diamond Black, Tungsten Silver, and Brilliant White.

Nissan Grand Livina Interior & Features

On the inside, the Nissan Grand Livina doesn’t generate any wow factor, with its aspect of simplicity written all over the cabin. However, the dual tone black and beige theme for the cabin somehow tries to lift up the ambience.

The three-spoke steering wheel with silver elements as well as the buttons mounted on it for audio and telephony are from the Nissan Almera. Also, the same goes for the dual pod instrument console with digital MID screen in between the analogue dials.

The long, vertical centre console looks broad and slightly premium thanks to the presence of thick wood-like garnish around it. A full silver finish for the music system and AC controls looks good too. However, the overuse of wood and silver elements might not appeal to some. The 2-Din music system as well as manual controls for the AC look very simple and could have designed in a more modern way.

In terms of features, the Nissan Grand Livina lacks many modern features which one takes for granted in similarly priced sedans and SUVs. However, where the Grand Livina clearly blows you over is its generous amount of space on offer, with all the three rows providing you oodles of room to seat with ease.

Grand Livina Exterior

In terms of design and looks, the Nissan Grand Livina doesn’t break any new grounds. It is designed in the same manner as most of the conventional MPVs are crafted. The overall design has a clear focus on functionality and form, which is why it might not appeal to the eye in the first impression stages.

Starting from the front, the Nissan Grand Livina comes with a shorter bonnet, which complements with equally sloping large chrome grille with three distinct chrome slats. These chrome slats blend in towards the large triangular headlamps. The grille tapers down towards the centre, which makes the front grille look slightly visually better.

From the sides, the boxy stance of the Grand Livina becomes more apparent, with the MPV having a long wheelbase. The large glass areas are designed in a somewhat old-fashioned way, with almost no character lines in the side profile making it look a bit bland. However, the rear view mirrors look aesthetically good with turn indicators mounted on them, which is the only modern bit we can find in the exterior design.

At the rear, the Nissan Grand Livina looks a bit bland and empty because of the absence of any character chrome element or any other lines. The large trapezoidal tail lamps which extend toward the centre of the boot lid somehow try to complete the rear profile of the car.

Nissan Grand Livina Ride & Handling

Being a large and boxy MPV, the Nissan Grand Livina is not a driver's delight and has a considerable amount of body roll as well. However, the independent MacPherson struts with stabilizer bar at the front and torsion beam type at the rear are tuned on a softer side, which contributes to the overall ride comfort. The ample amount of space for all the three rows means that long drives in the Grand Livina are a piece of cake. With minimal tiredness, it successfully complements its motive of being a functional MPV. The 15-inch wheels are a bit smaller for a vehicle of this size, and we would have loved to see at least 16-inch units on this car.

Grand Livina Engine & Fuel Consumption

For the Malaysian market, Nissan has made the Grand Livina available with two engine options, both of which are petrol powered. Talking about the smaller engine option first, the 1.6-litre,four-cylinder motor produces 105 PS of power and 153 Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the bigger engine is a 1.8-litre four-cylinder unit, which makes 126 PS of power and 178 Nm of torque.

While the smaller 1.6-litre unit comes with the options of a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic gearbox. The bigger 1.8 litre engine comes only with the 4-speed automatic gearbox as standard.

Nissan Grand Livina Braking & Safety

Given the fact that it’s a basic entry level compact MPV, don’t expect the Nissan Grand Livina to be fully loaded with all the modern safety functions. The Grand Livina comes equipped with only the basic safety features such as dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, and Brake Assist system. The lack of modern safety equipment is quite understandable, considering the fact that it targets at a price-conscious segment.

Grand Livina Verdict

When it comes to desirability, the Nissan Grand Livina surely lacks a lot of it. The reason behind this is pretty clear – the vehicle looks drab on the outside, it looks outdated from the inside and the list of comfort as well as safety features is nothing to write about. However, where it does excel clearly are the areas where the MPVs are meant to be, and that is overall comfort levels. With ample amount of space and supple ride quality, the Nissan Grand Livina is clearly a winner, if only that features matters you the most.
