E52 Elgrand compliance now available
May 16, 2014
Compliance for the current shape E52 Nissan Elgrand is now available, music to the ears of the many people who have come to learn just how great Nissan Elgrand series is, and yearn for a top of the line luxury people mover. While a completely new chassis, the E52 model shares many engine and other components with the E52, and now there is a choice of two engines with a 3.5L for those seeking a full 208kW of power (there's even a slightly more powerful "High Performance Spec" model), or a 2.5L for owners who would rather have the focus on fuel economy.
The E52 is packed with some very impressive technological toys including Nissan's 360 degree Around View system which uses 4 cameras to survey all of the blind spots around the car, parking guide assistance, 13 speaker BOSE surround sound, radar cruise control and collision avoidance systems, to name a few.
View the link below for more information about the long list of features available on these cars, plus many more photos.
Models eligible for import:
2.5L and 3.5L models with 2WD or 4WD, and seating 7 or 8 people are all eligible. There is no 7/8 seat registration complications as found with the earlier Elgrand models. Only 2010 to May 2012 models can be imported due to Australias extremely restrictive import laws, and only models which feature the Around View 4 camera system.
These models are readily available, since they are relatively new many first owners are yet to part with their cars and so as time goes by more will come onto the market. Due to their age the majority have done low mileage and are still in excellent condition.
As of mid 2014 prices for low mileage, good condition E52 Elgrands are typically in the $40,000 - $50,000 range, landed and complied.Back to news
