Nissan Presea 2000 Black Star.jpg

Nissan Presea (R10). 1990–4 (prod. n/a). 4-door hardtop sedan. F/F, 1497, 1597, 1838, 1998 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Nissan rediscovers curves, with the Presea apeing a scaled-down Nissan Laurel (C33), as the Laurel Spirit had with the Laurel of its era. Really a pillared hardtop influenced by the Toyota Carina ED (ST160): externally, with the windows up, the B-pillar was hidden, though there was a thin one inside housing the seat belt. The soft lines appealed to female buyers. Low roofline meant poor headroom and rear-seat accommodation—a case of style coming first, though initially, this did not hold the Presea back. Mid-term changes in 1992 lengthened the car marginally (25 mm). End of production in December 1994.
