Review: 2023 GAC GN6 270T GE

There’s something amiss that you sense the moment you enter the GAC GN6. Mind you, it has nothing to do with ergonomics or any of that. It has to do with the smell. At first, you pin the blame on the plastics; it is, after all, a common complaint among Chinese vehicles. But then it occurs to you: it doesn’t smell like plastics or adhesives or a dead rat. It smells like rubber—like someone put a bunch of tires in the cabin and had it bake there for some time. A minute later, you find the culprit: the t-type spare is located between the first two rows of seats, covered by a rather flimsy cloth-lined particle board cover.

Review: 2023 Hyundai Stargazer 1.5 GLS Premium IVT

The compact MPV segment is probably going to be the most hotly contested segment from now on. With sub-compact or B-segment cars, as they’re officially known, becoming more expensive, these small 7-seaters have become the default choice for many as their starter family car. True enough, look around you and chances are, you’ll see at least one (or maybe five) parked at your local village, school, or workplace.

First Drive: 2023 Hyundai Creta And 2023 Hyundai Stargazer

The Creta and Stargazer seem like they’ve got nothing in common. Sure enough, look at them and except for the stylized “H” logo at the front, there’s almost no family resemblance.

The All-New Nissan Livina: The Extraordinary MPV For The Extraordinary Filipino

From the get-go, the all-new Nissan Livina is no ordinary MPV. While its foray into the lucrative segment comes at the heels of the some of the most established brands in the market, what Nissan had in mind was to offer an experience worthy of every Filipino family’s time and money. The Livina was created with the most careful thought and functional design, aimed at providing the best in comfort and performance. In essence, it is the vehicle to turn every family’s daily journey into a trip worth looking forward to.

We can all agree that our families deserve only the best, especially when it comes to comfort and safety. The all-new Nissan Livina embodies exactly it means to put them first. From the inside-out, there is something special for every member of the household that ticks all the boxes for the perfect family car.

Modern, elegant styling

The all-new Nissan Livina is fitted with the signature Nissan sleekness that is infused with classic details that speak of age-appropriate upkeep. Modern elements such as the V-motion grille, LED parklights and taillights, daytime running lights and fog lights offer a much-needed upgrade to the standard utility MPV look that most of us have become used to. Add in the 16-inch alloy wheels and the Nissan Livina has the stature of a small SUV more than an MPV.

An interior fit for a home

In order to maximize every minute of the day, some of us practically live in our vehicles, turning most family cars into “mobile homes,” even if these may not have the capacity to be. Nissan recognizes that for a vehicle to be an effective and practical choice, it must be a space that you can live in – for at least the next few hours.

The all-new Livina boasts of a spacious interior that can accommodate a total seating capacity of seven. Each row offers generous legroom that can fit the size of children to full-sized adults. For convenience, there are strategically-placed storage spaces, charging ports, and good-sized cargo hold. For added comfort, the Nissan Livina is equipped with Nissan’s exceptional air-cooling system, which is perfect for our persistent tropical weather.

Maximum connectivity

Being on the road on the daily means that being easily reachable is a priority. That said, a hands-free system is the most practical and safe choice. The all-new Nissan Livina offers the most up-to-date in connectivity. Built-in as a standard is a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with an easy-to-navigate LCD display. It is equipped with a seamless Phonelink software and wireless Bluetooth that allows you to enjoy hands-free access to navigation and entertainment while you’re on the road.

Equipped with Nissan Intelligent Mobility

It is not enough for a family car to have the latest in style and tech. A deciding factor for any vehicle is how safe it is for the driver and passengers, especially if it will be moving those closest to your heart. The all-new Nissan Livina understands that when it comes to family, there is no compromise. With this in mind, Nissan designed the Livina to have the Nissan Intelligent Mobility safety system integrated as a standard. This ensures that every Livina comes with special safety features that include Vehicle Dynamic Control, Hill Start Assist, Dual SRS Airbags, Anti-lock Braking System, Traction Control, among others. Making maneuvering easy, it comes with a rear-view camera and parking sensors.

Worry-free, stress-free ownership

The greatest peace of mind in owning a vehicle is not having to worry about surprises down the line – particularly when it comes to maintenance costs. The Livina comes with Nissan’s 5-year warranty program (for the VL variant) and is packaged with its twice-a-year Preventive Maintenance Service. This offers you the flexibility and reassurance that your car is being taken care of, so you can focus on the things that matter the most.

The all-new Nissan Livina was designed with the intent of complementing the multifaceted lives of the Filipino family. As you decided on the next car for your growing brood, consider one that meets the contemporary style of today, is founded on the ideals of simplicity, function, and practicality, and offers the best in comfort, safety, and performance. In a word, that is the all-new Nissan Livina.
