As a car enthiusiast who also happens to be a father of three, I appreciate a car that can fit my family while being entertaining to drive and looking good in my garage.
While any five-seater car can accommodate us, a seven-seater will always do better as it affords two extra seats for those inevitable moments when a friend or two will ride with us.
Most of the time, though, I’d leave the third-row seats folded down and enjoy the cavernous space at the back for those moments when you need to bring a bike or camping equipment on a family trip.
I get all these with the all-new Nissan Livina.
First off, it’s got an exterior that exudes elegance.
Up front, the Livina sports Nissan’s distinctive V-motion grille and slim LED DRLs for a sporty, cutting-edge look.
Viewed from the side, the rising windowline endows the Livina with a more dynamic stance while its blacked-out pillars give it that floating roof effect.
Paired with handsome 16-inch machinefinished alloy wheels and rear combination lamps with signature LEDs, the Livina projects an overall design that’s both elegant and sporty.
Inside its well-crafted and ergonomically correct cabin, the all-new Livina can comfortably fit a family of seven while retaining cargo space at the back.
There are multiple storage compartments for all seven occupants. Hauling long and large gear?
The Livina’s second-row seats are built with a fold-flat function, while thirdrow seats can be split 50:50 to accommodate bigger luggage.
It’s also loaded with user-friendly tech such as a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system for seamless connectivity and an Intelligent Key System for easy vehicle access without the need to take the key out of your pocket or bag.
And to ensure comfort no matter where you’re seated, the new Livina is equipped with exceptionally cool front and rear air-conditioners that the brand has been renowned for.
Drive with peace of mind and focus more on enjoying your family trip, thanks to the Livina’s suite of Nissan Intelligent Mobility drive-assist technologies. These features include Hill Start Assist.
Vehicle Dynamic Control, Traction Control System and Anti-lock Brake System.
The Livina also comes with a rear view camera and parking sensors for added safety and convenience when backing up your vehicle.
And to help keep the whole family safe, the ISOFIX system and SRS airbags come standard on all Livina variants.
What I like the most about the new Nissan Livina is its firm yet comfortable suspension that’s paired with high ground clearance and a long wheelbase.
A stable, relaxing, and confidenceinspiring ride on every family trip.
Apart from this, its capable 105ps engine provides 141Nm of torque, giving a welcome responsiveness on your everyday drive.
The all-new Nissan Livina starts at PHP1,029,000 for the base E MT model, while its top-of-the-line VL AT variant goes for PHP1,209,000.
To sweeten the deal, the VL AT variant only requires twice-a-year maintenance and has a classleading 5-year warranty.
