The Nissan Wingroad is an automobile available only as a compact station wagon. The first generation (Y10) was originally an estate version of the Nissan Sunny made between 1994 and 1998, but with a different rear end compared to the standard Sunny wagons that were exported.
The second series (Y11) began in 1998, once again available only with a station wagon body, sold in the Japanese and Caribbean markets. It is mechanically based on the Sunny B15 but has a different exterior design. The interior design is shared with the Japanese market Nissan Sunny B15 as well. The car slotted in the market between the Bluebird Sylphy (a more upscale version of the Sunny, identical to the 2001 Sentra) and the Primera, available with 1.5 L, 1.8 L and 2.0 L engines. The 1.8 L exists only as a 4WD version. The second generation Wingroad received a facelift in 2001, with a sleeker front end and a new interior.
An all-new Wingroad (Y12) debuted in late 2005, now sharing its platform with the smaller Tiida, while the Lafesta takes the Wingroad's former position as the estate version of the Sylphy. Like the Tiida, it has a wheelbase of 2600 mm, and the new HR15DE and MR18DE engines. CVT is optional. The e4WD all wheel drive system is available with the smaller engine.
