Nissan Tsuru won’t be produced any more by the company in Mexico due to safety issues of the car.

Nissan Tsuru is a really famous Sedan for Mexican people. However the company has decided to cease the production of this Sedan from next May. Its sporty variant did not get any fame in the US where it was eventually taken off the mill.

Though in Mexico, the car remained in business and in making unchanged from the year 1992. The car was unchanged for most of the part and was still making business in the country. However today Nissan announced that they no longer will produce Tsuru after May 2017.

"In the Mexican automotive industry, Tsuru is one of the top sales leaders," said Mayra Gonzalez, president and general director, Nissan Mexicana.

"The majority of Mexicans have some history that binds us to the Nissan Tsuru. The sedan, which has a huge following, has provided families in Mexico high-quality, reliable and durable transportation since 1984."

Nissan has sold 1.8 million Nissan Tsurus up till date. The company says that this car is so famous in Mexican citizens due to its durability and reliability. Along with that it is pretty affordable too.

It is available in a price of 7,600 US Dollars with a capacity for five passengers. The sedan has a 1.6 liter inline four-rated engine with a horsepower of 105bhp.

Nissan has also said that it has no plans to bring about a successor of Nissan Tsuru in future. They will be providing the new vehicle Versa instead of this one. Nissan is already selling Sentra in Mexico these days too. Thus it will be publicized too. 

Nissan Tsuru is widely famous in Mexico but it surely has faced a lot of trouble recently due to safety issues. Most of the cars are sold without airbags thus it has been reported that 4000 deaths have occurred when a driver or passenger was involved in an accident while riding a Nissan Tsuru.
