Despite being one of the leading companies in the automotive industry, Nissan also has plenty of models that are designed for specific markets. The Elgrand is one of them. This luxury minivan can only be seen in Japanese streets, which makes it pretty exclusive. However, it’s not hard to presume that it has a lot in common with the internationally offered Quest, which was in the offer for the U.S. and a few more markets. Both models are pretty old, so we expect to see a redesign in the near future. Most likely, this will happen already in the next year. The 2020 Nissan Elgrand is expected to come completely redesigned, with a plethora of novelties in all aspects. Count on new mechanics, new styling, features and many more things.
2020 Nissan Elgrand Redesign
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2020 Nissan Elgrand is about to bring a lot of novelties. One of the first things that come to mind is the platform. The current model rides on a well-known D platform and it looks like it will be replaced with something completely new, if we can rely on the latest reports. The details are still unavailable, but it looks like the new model won’t come with much different dimensions. We are about to see a minivan of a similar size.
On the other side, we count on new styling. It is still early to talk about anything more precise, but are pretty sure that the 2020 Nissan Elgrand will also feature a lot of distinctive details. This model never followed the brand’s design language, so we presume that won’t be the case in the future either. Still, some styling cues that resemble the actual V-motion grille layout seem possible. Once again, we count on a lot of flashy details that will accentuate the model’s luxury character.
Huge novelties are expected on the inside as well. Despite we are talking about a pretty luxurious van, the current generation has been around since 2010. Although there were some updates, we are still talking about a design that is almost a decade old. Therefore, the 2020 Nissan Elgrand will come completely new in this aspect. The first thing that comes to mind is a new interior styling, but we count on further improvements in terms of interior quality as well. More attractive shapes, finer materials and new color combinations are just some of the things we expect to see in the 2020 Nissan Elgrand. Of course, big updates in terms of tech features are expected as well, starting from a new infotainment system and other gadgetry.
2020 Nissan Elgrand Engines
When it comes to engines, we also expect to see some interesting novelties for this overhaul. The current version comes with two well-known units in the offer. Those are familiar 2.5- and 3.5-liter V6 engines, which haven’t been upgraded much for all these years of production. Therefore, we have a lot of expectations from the 2020 Nissan Elgrand. Both units are expected to carry on, though with significant improvements in terms of power and overall efficiency.
That shouldn’t be all when it comes to the powertrain department. Various reports are also suggesting an electrified version. At this point, we can’t say whether is this going to be hybrid or all-electric version.
2020 Nissan Elgrand Release Date and Price
Although many reports are suggesting a complete overhaul for the next year, the fact is that we are still waiting to hear something from the officials on this matter. Therefore, take this redesign with a reserve. If it happens, we presume there won’t be significant changes in price compared to the current model, which starts at around 37.000 dollars.
