Nissan’s Primera, the car that according to its advertising is a new form of intelligence, graduates at the Sunday Times Motor Show Live with a new and more luxurious interior, added technology including a unique traffic avoidance feature for its DVD satellite navigation system, and finer tuned ride and handling. The further qualified Primera has been designed, engineered and will be built in the UK. And it takes to the stage for the first time on Nissan’s stand at the UK’s biggest car show.
The interior upgrades are all about improving the perceived quality of the Primera. That’s the way the car feels when you first sit in it. Nobody’s ever questioned the long term durability of a Primera – it is a Nissan after all – but some thought it didn’t feel, oh, luxurious or expensive enough when you stroked it in a car showroom. Well, there shouldn’t be any complaints now. Especially as the upgraded Primera is likely to be priced from around £14,500 when sales start in July.
Few cars offer a rear-parking camera at any price. It’s a feature that’s certain to wow friends and potentially save you the cost, at the very least, of a rear bumper repair. Previously Primeras of SE status and above had a black and white dashboard mounted screen that showed what was going on to the rear of the car when reverse gear was selected. As part of the revisions to the Primera, the camera goes colour to give an even clearer view on the screen. And it will be standard on all but the S grade.
