Nissan’s All New Luxury Elgrand Arrives In Malaysia
“Dynamism and Luxury” is well expressed in the brand new Elgrand. The low and wide body proportions emphasize the Elgrand’s stability, with the dynamic lines flowing from the front and leading all the way down the sides, highlighting its majestic profile. The front and second row passengers will be pampered by the ultimate comfort of Elgrand’s signature feature – ‘Captain Seat’. These individual Captain seats incorporate three new technologies: ‘seat cushion-integrated leg rest,’ ‘articulated seatback,’ and ‘three-layered cushion pads.’ Nissan is the only automaker adopting all three technologies that makes a traveller feels like sitting in a First Class airline seat.
In addition, the “King of Minivans” offers the passenger with easy entry via the automatic large rear door slides, a separate dual-zone automatic climate control for front and rear cabin, a private theatre entertainment system and an advance Around View Monitor parking camera that allows driver an easy manoeuvre in tight spaces.
The Elgrand has a sedan-like drivability and stability thanks to its highly engineered all-new-platform, giving it a low centre of gravity to provide a complete control and comfortable ride. The premium MPV uses a 3.5-liter V6 engine that has a maximum power output of 280PS at 6400rpm and maximum torque of 344Nm at 4400rpm. The Elgrand wears a stylish Chrome-coated, polished 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with a choice of four exterior colours: White Pearl, Brilliant Silver, Dark Purple and Black while the interior features a luxurious dark espresso leather and gradation wood-tone panel. The Elgrand is fully imported from Japan and retails from RM384,863.20 excluding road tax, insurance and registration related charges. Prices are valid in Peninsular Malaysia and subject to change without prior notice.
It is supported by a 3-year or 100,000km warranty whichever comes first. ETCM’s After Sales Service provides 24 hours road assistance, towing and minor-on-the-spot repairs in Malaysia. Customers can expect the fit, reliability and assistance that one should deserve, which will help retain their Nissan’s performance and resale value for years to come.
