The Nissan Elgrand was first produced in 1997 and has since continued its original theme of being a high-class minivan which is meant to help its driver relax. Petrol and diesel engines are available for both 2WD and 4WD models. The interior design is one of the best in its class. Passenger seats can be folded away to provide a large amount of luggage space. The Elgrand is versatile in that it can be used as a family car as well as a business vehicle.
The style of the Caravan Elgrand gives the feel of an overwhelming presence. It is comfortable and spacious, offering an impressive amount of strength under the hood. The Elgrand can be powered by a 3.2L diesel turbo engine with 150 horsepower, or a 3.3L V6 petrol engine offering 170 horsepower. Safety equipment includes dual airbags for the driver and front passenger's seat, anti-lock brakes and seatbelts–all of which come standard. Features across its many grades include options such as a TV and DVD navigation system, active AFS which automatically lights the direction of a turning headlamp, leather seats and genuine leather-wrapped steering wheel and instrument shift knob, and power seats, with some even offering sunroofs and smart keys.
