Nissan is preparing a restyling Elgrand

September 12, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The company has published several photos of the modified minivan and announced changes in the design of the exterior and interior trim, but has not yet provided data on technical modernization.

The current Elgrand is one of the main long-livers of the Nissan line, the third generation has been produced since 2010. In 2014 there was the first noticeable restyling, but over a whole decade the car has changed insignificantly. In the 2021 model year version, the improvements will be noticeable, but not dramatic: if at the announcement stage the company did not report on the modernization of the power plants, then it will probably end up limited to changes in appearance, decoration and electronics.

Elgrand will receive a new grille, headlights, bumper trim and a different wheel design. In the cabin, changes will affect the front panel and dashboard. There will be a new 10-inch screen, and the infotainment system itself is likely to receive a more modern feature set.

One of the noticeable elements of the restyling will be the appearance of a new version from Autech. Externally, it will be distinguished by its own radiator grille, lights, 180-inch wheels and cosmetic trim of some elements. In the Elgrand Autech showroom, there will be an improved faux leather trim with a “quilted” cut and blue stitching, decorative lighting and other cosmetic items. This variant will also receive Autech’s signature blue, and a new shade of deep red (Deep Crimson) will appear in the overall Elgrand color scheme.

No changes have been reported in the engine lineup. Elgrand is equipped with 2.5- and 3.5-liter engines in combination with a variator.

Pre-orders for the revamped Elgrand in Japan will begin accepting on September 14th. The exact start date and cost will be announced later.
