About the Nissan Skyline
The legendary Nissan Skyline has a high-performance racing heritage that few cars in production today can match. For this reason, many Kenyan racing car fans who love JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) cars have the Nissan Skyline on their bucket lists. The Skyline is the car that Nissan used to introduce its globally-recognized, high-performance GT-R variant, which went on to become a brand of its own.
The Skyline was first introduced in 1957, and is currently in the 13th generation. It is fundamentally a premium midsize, performance-focused car, most of its models employing a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive body layout; however, its later generations can also be had with all-wheel drive. As such, it competes directly against cars like the Toyota Mark X and Toyota Crown on the Kenyan market.
If you are thinking about importing a Nissan Skyline to Kenya, you are probably asking yourself the following questions.
What are the main features of Nissan Skyline?
Many of the Nissan Skyline models on the Kenyan market are the 12th-generation V36 (2006-2014) and 13th-generation V37 models (2014-present). These models feature a masculine, fluid shape with swept-back headlights, muscular curves and sweeping lines. The V37 models are more sharply and aggressively styled, and depending on their model year and trim level, they may also feature daytime running lights, 17/18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, and dual exhaust tips.
On the inside, the Nissan Skyline offers a sport-themed yet refined cabin, with premium cloth/leather upholstery and conveniences that may include automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats, wood/aluminum interior trim, a BOSE premium audio system, and an infotainment system.
How spacious is the Nissan Skyline?
Being a midsize sedan, the Nissan Skyline offers respectable seating space in both its rows. Tall passengers will not feel restricted or have a problem getting into or out of the second row. At the back, most models of this car offer a little over 380 liters of trunk space, which is average for this car segment.
Is Nissan Skyline Fuel-efficient? What are its engine transmission options?
The Nissan Skyline V36 models (2006-2014) can be had with a 2.5L V6 petrol (250GT models), 3.5L V6 petrol (350GT models), or a 3.7L V6 petrol (370GT models), all naturally aspirated. The smallest engine may return a fuel economy of up to 11km/L, while the 3.5L V6 engine may return up to 9.4km/L (with RWD). The AWD models are even thirstier.
The latest-generation V37 Nissan Skyline models are a bit more fuel efficient. They can be had with a Mercedes-Benz-sourced 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine with a fuel consumption rating of 13 km/L. They may also feature a 3.0L turbo V6 that returns 9.7km/L or a 3.5L V6 Hybrid that returns 14 km/L.
What is the ground clearance for Nissan Skyline?
Most Skylines have a ground clearance of 5.1 inches, which is lower than the recommended clearance for Kenyan roads. Therefore, to avoid scrapping bumps and damaging its undercarriage when driving on dirt/murram roads, make plans to increase your Nissan Skyline’s ground clearance, e.g., with the help of aftermarket suspension springs.
Can you find spare parts for used Nissan Skyline?
The popularity of the Nissan Skyline in Kenya is steady growing, especially among your car enthusiasts. Therefore, it should not be too hard to find spare parts, especially in major towns like Mombasa, Kisumu, and Nairobi.
Is Nissan Skyline reliable? Does it have a good resale value?
The owners of Nissan Skyline models have not reported any major problems with its systems or components. With proper maintenance, Nissan Skyline can cope with regular usage on Kenyan roads for a long time. In the resale value department, however, the Skyline does not do so well because it is majorly a niche product.
The Nissan Skyline is for people who want more than just a daily driver or point A to point B car; for people who are looking for more fun and excitement on the road. It is sure to impress you with its nimble handling and potent performance. However, that performance comes at the cost of its fuel economy and practicality.
