Nissan has given the Nissan Elgrand a little nip and tuck for the 2014 model year. Since Tan Chong sells the Elgrand here through official channels, perhaps we’ll eventually get this facelift.

The changes to the front are pretty obvious – the Elgrand facelift receives what appears to be the largest front grille we’ve ever seen on an MPV. The MPV also gets LED lighting for its Active Adaptive Front-Lighting System headlamps. Other changes include a new design for the 18-inch alloy wheels and new clear-lens rear lamps.


A new Drive Assist Display with 5-inch colour display is located between the redesigned speedometer and tachometer. There’s also a new interior colour scheme for the Highway STAR Premium grade called Grand Black Interior. It implements a combination of dedicated deep wood grain accents with coloured chrome and dedicated black metallic leather appointed seats with elaborately-made amber accent and diamond-shape quilted pattern with special stitches.

Another improvement is the new slide function for the third row of seats, allowing legroom to be adjusted to make way for extra luggage space. Nissan has also lowered the level of the luggage board in the rear luggage space to the floor level, allowing more items to be loaded without opening the luggage board.
