[YesAuto Professional Evaluation] The 1.6T engine with outstanding power attracted countless eyeballs for Tiida, and people were excited about its outstanding performance. However, in the final purchase stage, the 1.6L model still accounted for most of the sales data. . It seems that Tiida's family car image is deeply ingrained in consumers' minds. In this case, we have no reason not to send you this test report.
What we tested this time is an entry-level model equipped with a CVT gearbox-the 2011 Tiida 1.6L CVT Comfort, with a guide price of 115,300. There are currently about 12,000 discounts on the market, plus a 3,000 yuan subsidy for the people. The final transaction price of the naked car is about 100,000 yuan, which is not small.
Although it is a 2011 model, Tiida's simple and dynamic appearance still looks very beautiful today. Although the price is much cheaper than the high-end models, it is difficult to see the difference between them if you don't look carefully. Don’t have to look for it, I’ve found the two main points for you:
The biggest difference between the 1.6L CVT Comfort and the 1.6T M-CVT Cool Edition is the headlights, tires, and wheels. From the tire configuration, we can also see the comfort orientation of the 1.6L model. It should be A family car that is really used to commute to get off work, grocery shopping, and pick up children.
● Power combination
It does not give the horrifying data of 190 horsepower like the 1.6T engine, but 126 horsepower is still a pretty good number for this 1.6L naturally aspirated engine. This engine is also in service on Sylphy and Qashqai models.
XTRONIC CVT gearboxes are widely used in various models of Nissan. The biggest difference between the use of CVT gearboxes and 1.6T models is that there is no manual mode. But you don’t have to worry about it, because it has a sports mode, which is much more practical than the manual mode that we haven’t used in a long time.

● Driving experience
This is a car that drives very lightly. Even without a turbo, the 1.6L engine drives a 1.2-ton car body without much pressure. When you tap the accelerator, the power output is relatively “reserved”, ensuring that this car will not be caused by you. Carefully move and swift; then step on the accelerator slightly, and the XTRONIC CVT gearbox will immediately understand it, and raise the speed to 2000-2500rpm. At this time, the engine's torque output will have a small peak, and the power performance is enough to cope with the city. The way is up.
The soft suspension will let you indulge in a comfortable driving experience, but Tiida will not neglect when you really need power. Depress the accelerator and the speed rises above 3000rpm, which is enough to overtake a car. If it's not enough, just press the round button on the side of the gear to turn on the sport mode. The engine speed will be maintained above 2500-3000rpm, and the throttle response will be faster and more direct. For a family car, its performance It can be described as a lot of motivation.
The light steering and flickering body are typical Nissan styles, and the soft accelerator pedal also lacks a 1.6T agitation. The return to the original 1.6L CVT should be the original face of Tiida. Oh, by the way, don’t forget another highlight of it: excellent ride space.
● Riding space
Experiencers with a height of 175cm, sitting in the front row of Tiida get a punch and a half of head space. Experiencers of the same height get a punch and a punch and a finger and a finger in the front row on Fox and Golf respectively. Tiida Slightly ahead.
The long wheelbase of 2700mm has traded for considerable rear space, allowing 175cm experiencers to get more than two punches in the back row of the Tiida leg room, while on Fox and Golf, this data is only one punch. Obviously, Tiida is more friendly to the rear passengers, which is one of the reasons why we say it is the most suitable for home use in its class.
● Fuel consumption test
The fuel consumption test drove a total of 137.4km, of which about 30% were congested sections with speeds below 30km/h, about 20% were highway sections with speeds of 100km/h, and the rest were loops with speeds of 60-80km/h. The average speed displayed by the trip computer is 29km/h, and the total consumption of 92# gasoline is 9.04L in the whole journey. The average fuel consumption per 100 kilometers is 6.58L, which is slightly higher than the 6.1L/100km displayed by the trip computer, but it is quite good.
During the entire fuel consumption test, the numbers on the on-board computer did not exceed 7L/100km, and even lower than 6L/100km at the minimum. I think for the vast majority of consumers, such fuel consumption can be satisfactory.
Reasonable fuel consumption reference values (non-rigid indicators) given by us for each class of models
Purely economical minicars: no more than 7 liters/100 kilometers
Small car/hybrid: no more than 8 liters/100 kilometers
Compact/light SUV: no more than 10 liters/100 kilometers
Medium-sized car/medium-sized SUV: no more than 12 liters/100 kilometers
Other models: no more than 15 liters/100 kilometers
● Performance test
0-100km/h acceleration test
The gearbox allows a maximum start at 2500rpm, the start is relatively smooth, the front wheels will not slip, and the maximum acceleration is reached after about 2 seconds. The CVT gearbox always controls the engine speed at about 5500rpm. There is no obvious flashpoint during the acceleration process, but in the end The 10.55 second score is completely handy, it seems that the official score of 11.7 seconds is still too conservative. For a 1.2-ton car with a 1.6L engine + CVT gearbox, this result is excellent; as a family car, this acceleration capability is more than enough.
100-0km/h brake test
Tiida’s suspension is relatively soft. When the car is fully braked, the front of the car is pressed down and the rear of the car rises, causing the rear wheel grip to weaken and the deceleration to drop briefly. However, this situation is not obvious. There was no thermal decay in many tests, and the stability of the brake system has also withstood the test. In the end, the braking performance of 40.23 meters was excellent, and he was in the first echelon among opponents of the same level.
Comfortable, fuel-efficient, large space, and the smoothness of the power combination of 1.6L engine + CVT gearbox is unquestionable. Tiida has the qualities that a family car should have, and it is very specific: it does not think about “sports”. Yes, I just wanted to be the most suitable car for household use, and it did it. Look at the price again: a little over 100,000 is more reasonable, and high sales are a natural thing.
So, is Tiida 1.6L CVT too perfect? You can think so, provided that you don't care about the lack of ESC electronic stability system. This is not groundless. You have to know that the two powerful enemies from the United States and Germany: Fox and Golf have all come standard with ESC electronic stabilization system, which is related to safety and is more helpful to car owners in rainy and snowy areas. You can use ESC as a basis for choosing a car. If you think other conditions are similar, then choose a car equipped with this configuration.
Tiida 2011 1.6L CVT Comfort Type
For about 105,000 yuan, you can buy a Focus 1.6L manual transmission model, but if you want to buy an automatic transmission (dual-clutch gearbox), you need to add another 10,000 yuan. The suspension of this generation of Focus is a bit softer than the previous generation, but it is still the main control car; the golf 1.6L manual transmission can also be bought at the same price, and the market price of its automatic transmission (AT instead of DSG) model has exceeded At the price of 120,000, the Volkswagen brand is a major selling point of golf, and the high quality of German cars is affirmed by many Chinese.
Therefore, my suggestion is: If you want your car to drive more exercise, then you can consider Fox; if you pay attention to quality, have a moral complex, choose Golf; if you need a comfortable, fuel-efficient, space For a big family car, you should give priority to Tiida.
