A compact station wagon, during the creation of which great importance was attached to an increase in cargo capacity. He had exactly the same engine range as the Sunny car on which he was built. In particular: a gasoline engine with a working volume of 1.5 liters (105 hp), 1.8 liters (125 hp) and a 2-liter diesel engine (76 hp). Among the advantages of Wingroad is the unusually spacious luggage compartment by the standards of a compact car. The back of the body was slightly extended so that it was convenient to load and unload things. Of course, such a bias towards increased cargo capacity could not but affect the appearance of the car, and it really was not devoid of the features of a cargo van. Therefore, the model range was provided for the version "for individual use" (Aero Version). Its creation was entrusted to a subsidiary of Autech Japan. Wingroad has a discreet interior, with a simple style design that was typical for most Japanese cars of this class in those years, but with well-thought-out ergonomics and the most necessary “in the base”, if we take the LE version, which had electric windows, air conditioning, a radio, for the initial level with two speakers. However, there was an even more inexpensive grade LE extra, which only offered air conditioning and audio preparation. On the other side of the lineup, there were much more comfortable and visually appealing cars - as, for example, in the Jute touring aero express specification from Autech. Such a station wagon is distinguished by aerodynamic parts in a pronouncedly sporty design, a sports muffler, large fog lights, roof rails, alloy 15-inch wheels, and from the equipment - climate control, a powerful audio system with a CD player and so on. For Nissan Wingroad Y10 (1996-1999) a wide aggregate range was offered. The base engine is GA15DE, in-line DOHC Quartet with 105 hp. (135 Nm of torque). This engine was combined with "mechanics" (5MKPP) or "automatic" (4AKPP), in versions with front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Only the automatic transmission was connected to the 1.8-liter SR18DE unit (125 hp, 157 Nm), but the drive is also front or full. The diesel version was equipped with a CD20 engine (2.0 l, 76 hp 132 Nm) - these models are equipped with front-wheel drive and a manual or automatic transmission. In 1997, a new exclusive model of the aero express class appeared with a powerful 2.0-liter SR20DE engine (150 hp, 186 Nm) - these machines had only front-wheel drive performance.
The chassis of the wagon Nissan Wingroad Y10 corresponds to the tasks assigned to it. Front - MacPherson strut independent suspension. At the rear there is a semi-dependent torsion-lever or continuous axle for all-wheel drive cars, both versions are on springs. All models have power steering, ventilated disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear. The car was equipped with wheels of different sizes: 175 / 65R14, 185 / 60R14 or even 185 / 55R15, and diesel versions, for example, were content with 155SR13 truck tires. The station wagon has the following dimensions: length 4295 mm, width and height 1665 and 1515 mm. With a wheelbase of 2400 mm, the turning radius is relatively small - 5.1-5.2 m. Interior dimensions: 1705 mm in length, 1360 mm in width, height 1205 mm. Very comfortable folding rear seats (60:40).
In terms of safety, the first-generation Nissan Wingroad also has everything you need. For the station wagon, a standard driver airbag was offered (even in the most inexpensive version), additional options included an anti-lock brake system. Nissan Wingroad in this generation actually plays the role of a more comfortable and better equipped version of the AD model, with which it shares most of the design decisions. The car has a reliable suspension and a large (by the standards of the class), convenient luggage compartment in use. Among the shortcomings, the owners usually call poor corrosion protection, insufficiently powerful stove, weak one and a half liter engine.
