The Presage is an upscale minivan with three rows of seats, launched by Nissan in 1998 as a rival to the Honda Odyssey range. The design mainly uses the components of the R’nessa model. Since there are three rows of seats in the cabin, various options for their layout and installation are provided (there are seven- and eight-seat modifications). But, unfortunately, the third row of seats cannot be completely removed, which significantly reduces practicality. The body shape of the Presage is very similar to the silhouette of a Honda Odyssey. The engine range includes a 6-cylinder V-engine with a displacement of 3 liters. In addition, there is a 4-cylinder gasoline engine, the volume of which is 2.4 liters, as well as a 2.5-liter turbo diesel.
Simultaneously with the Presage, a related model, Nissan Bassara, was produced. The Bassara lineup, in fact, is a number of the same Presage machines, although slightly better materials are used in its decoration. In 2001, a partial replacement of the model range was carried out, during which it was decided to abandon the diesel engine, and instead use a 2.5-liter gasoline engine with 4 cylinders of the QR series. In addition, the design of the front of the machine was changed. Both lineups - Presage and Bassara - were supplemented by Highway star modification. Also produced tuning equipment Axis.
