2013 Nissan Dualis upgraded with standard sat nav, new diesel option

Nissan has revised the Dualis for 2013 with the fitment of sat nav and a reversing camera as standard throughout the range. A 1.6-litre turbo-diesel has also been added to the line-up.


As before the Dualis is available as a standard wheelbase model with seating for five, or a longer wheelbase version that can seat seven.

The range kicks off at A$25,990 for the entry-level ST. This model features as standard front-wheel drive, a 102kW/198Nm 2-litre petrol engine and 6-speed manual transmission. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is a A$2,500 option, while the +2 version retails for A$31,190 with CVT as standard.

Additions to the ST’s spec for 2013 include larger 17-inch alloy wheels, a 5-inch touchscreen display that not only drives the sound system, but also features satellite navigation and a reversing camera.

Next up is the A$29,990 diesel-only TS that’s only available with the 6-speed manual; a the longer +2 format variant can’t be purchased in Australia. The 1.6-litre R9M turbo-diesel has 96kW of power and 320Nm of torque at its disposal, while fuel economy is rated at 4.5L/100km. Extra equipment on the TS includes tinted rear glass, an extra splash of chrome for the exterior and front fog lights.

The Ti model has been deleted, so the range rounds out with the Ti-L that starts at A$32,190. This model features the 102kW/198Nm 2-litre petrol engine, 6-speed manual and front-wheel drive. CVT adds A$2,500 to that price, while the AWD/CVT combo is listed at A$36,440. The A$36,740 Dualis+2 Ti-L comes with CVT fitted as standard and AWD as a $2,200 option.

Standard features on the Ti-L should include around view monitor, leather seats, dual-zone climate control and panoramic sunroof.

The revised Dualis goes on sale from the beginning of May 2013.
