If you love JDM classics, you probably already know this 1997 Nissan Stagea RS FOUR wagon. It has the reputation of being one of those terrific road-hugging cars that followed in the footsteps of the legendary Nissan Skyline. So this all-wheel-drive turbocharged grocery-getter represents something fun, distinct, practical, and affordable.

Wagons are a terrific way to enjoy a modern classic like this. They may have been developed for practical family duty, but since this one wasn\'t allowed in the USA, it has become an outlaw. So you are a rebel with a liftback. The design is more distinct than anything we were offered in the 1990s. Plus, the lattice wheels, diamond-pattern grille, and Dark Emerald Green paint give this a classy look that may make people think it\'s from England (especially because it\'s also right-hand drive.) The overall finish and trim look original, which makes them attractive but not perfect... but that makes you feel like this is a driver\'s car that you won\'t be afraid to enjoy. And that seems right here because the Japanese build quality gives you the kind of good lines and solid feel that make this unique machine feel as ready as a daily driver.

The Stagea was made to fit into everyday life, so it\'s spacious, comfortable, and quite clean. But what also makes it attractive is you can feel it\'s a well-done driver\'s car. You have a Momo airbag steering wheel, a tilt steering column, and good gauges with a large speedo and tach. There are nice comfort features like power windows, locks, mirrors, passenger airbags, and air conditioning. And while there\'s a ton of fun, you can woo people by driving from the \"passenger\" seat. The real uniqueness begins behind you. The extra passenger and cargo space is quite practical. It makes this good everything from a family-ready classic to a distinct way to transport and show off other collectibles.

The DOHC fuel-injected 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-six. This kind of motor gives it a direct comparison to the hot Skylines of this era (it closely resembles the power package of the GTS spec.) And just like the skyline, the real desire is how it handles the total power. An all-wheel-drive system and well-developed, fully independent make it a true blast to drive. The motor has a tidy look of good care. We\'re even told newer items like the water pump, tensioners, and HKS timing belt were done within about the last 9k miles. So while you\'ll love the versatile power and nimble handling, you\'ll also appreciate an overall feeling of a solid driver. And features like the four-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes with ABS make this modern classic great for any time use.

This is power, style, distinction, and practicality all offered for quite an obtainable piece. Don\'t miss this JDM Nissan. Call now!
