Nissan Moco

  • Status = Discontinued Worldwide
  • Sold in Pakistan = 2012-2018
  • Generation = 3rd (Discontinued)

The new, third-generation Moco builds on the strong reputation of previous models. Both the first-generation Moco launched in April 2002, and the second-generation model that followed in February 2006, has been praised by customers for their stylish, elegant exterior and interior qualities. The latest Moco carries on the tradition with an added sense of style and interior openness.

The more refined exterior styling features distinctively shaped headlights that are unique to Moco, with the bold front bumper design providing a feeling of soundness and solidity. The interior, created under the concept of a “high-quality, comfortable new space for myself,” delivers a high-quality feel with its glossy, piano-black center cluster finisher and an advanced-design AM/FM radio and CD player with the touch-panel display.

With a renewed engine, CVT, and platform, the Moco 2WD model, equipped with an R06A engine, achieves a best-in-class fuel economy of 25.5 km/l*1. Furthermore, including models equipped with a turbocharged engine, the new Moco achieves both a 25% improvement in fuel economy over 2010 standards (20% improvement for the 4WD model with a turbocharged engine) and SU-LEV certification, emitting 75% fewer exhaust emissions than 2005 standards. This qualifies all grades of the Moco for the tax exemption for environmentally friendly vehicles*2, providing reductions in both new vehicle acquisition and weight taxes.

Moco is supplied to Nissan by Suzuki Motor Corporation on an OEM basis.

Key features of the new Moco are:
1) Refined interior design
2) Comfortable interior space with increased openness
3) Best-in-class fuel economy

Overview of the New Moco

 Design

The new Moco’s exterior maintains the key features of its previous generations while enhancing interior openness and visibility. The front end includes sharp and stylish headlights, and a new solid-looking wide grille and front bumper. The large windshield and front door windows offer improved openness to the interior, while in the rear, the iconic dark line accented combination lights add a high-quality feel. Four of Moco’s six exterior colors are new for this generation, including Moco Berry pearl metallic, which expresses elegance and gorgeousness.

The interior offers an uplifting design with a high-quality feel. A bright piano-black finisher is applied to a wide area of the instrumental panel, offering a refined appearance. The Fine Vision Meter adds to the high-quality feel with colorful and luminous light, with its meter and pointer illuminated to improve visibility. The AM/FM radio/CD player with a 4.3-inch color display is designed in accordance with the instrumental panel. Operated by a touch panel, it is compatible with portable audio players including iPod®*3. Moco is also equipped with RearView Monitor (optional on X/X FOUR and G/G FOUR models). Chic, brown houndstooth-check seat material, coordinated with the modern interior space, completes the sense of style and openness. 

Packaging

Another strong element of the new Moco design is its packaging, which offers a comfortable interior space with enhanced openness. Moco’s new platform, with a wheelbase longer than the previous generations, increases interior length by up to 180mm*4. With significantly increased head clearance and rear knee room, spacious and comfortable interior space is realized. The comfortable front bench seat and rear seat with sliding function*4 provide more room for passengers. A total of six seating configurations are possible, enabling passengers to make the most of the spacious interior cabin.

Mechanism

For the S/S FOUR and X/X FOUR models, the newly-developed R06A engine achieves excellent fuel economy and improved torque at low and medium speed range through both the utilization of Continuous Valve Timing Control on both exhaust and intake sides and a longer engine stroke. The turbo version of the new R06A turbo engine, adopted on the G/G FOUR model, delivers both powerful acceleration and strong environmental performance, realized by the use of Continuous Valve Timing Control on the intake side.

In addition, the new Moco is equipped with a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with a sub-transmission that increases gear ratios and achieves both strengths at low speeds and fuel efficiency at high speeds.

A lightweight body with effective use of high-tension steel has also been adopted for the new Moco. Vehicle weight is reduced by 30 kilograms*5 compared to the previous model, helping contribute to fuel efficiency.

Finally, Moco’s eco-drive support function includes instant and average fuel efficiency readings displayed on the Fine Vision meter. A special ECO Indicator also turns on during eco-driving.
