What do we have here then? A slice of majestic JDM multi-purpose vehicle magic. Otherwise known as the Nissan Elgrand. Here, in racy Nismo trim. Hold on, what’s a multi-purpose vehicle? Oh to be young. MPVs are a dying breed. With the increased consumption of crossovers and the rise of the now ubiquitous SUV, the poor MPV has become remarkably unfashionable to both marketing departments and consumers. Which is a shame, as we love a good ol’ MPV. They were all the rage in the late ‘80s and ‘90s, with the Renault Espace being the pioneering MPV for the masses. Thanks to monstrous amounts of interior space and flexible seating structure, MPVs offer limitless opportunities to rearrange your captain’s chairs. You can basically turn them into a rolling whatever-the-hell-you-want. Mobile office? Sure. Peripatetic pilates studio? No problem. Indoor picnic arena? Easy.
