NISSAN SKYLINE Used Car Review
Originally known as the Prince Skyline before Prince and Nissan merged in 1967, this is a badge that covers a mix of body styles and was introduced locally in 1964. Four-door Nissan Skylines were built in Australia between 1978 and 1990, though the Skyline name these days is most closely associated with the sportier versions that were imported privately - and the GT-R supercar that no longer uses the Skyline name. In more recent years, Nissan Skyline models have been rebadged for Nissan's luxury division Infiniti for countries that include North America and Australia. The Infiniti Q50 sedan, for example, is called the Nissan Skyline in Japan.
- Sedan/wagon versions were great for long-distance travel
- Strong six-cylinder engine
- Cult status for sportier models, especially GT-R flagship.
- Plenty of car and features for money in its day
- Not the most attractive styling
- Sportier versions generally private imports
- Examples can be heavily modified
- Can now only buy Infiniti-badged versions of Skylines in Australia
