Largo minivan was created in the image and likeness of the Nissan Serena, but with a much wider and more comfortable interior.
The cabin can accommodate 7 or 8 people, the seats are arranged in three rows. To enter the passenger part of the cabin there is a huge sliding door on the left side. The doorway is very wide. Inside - two triple sofas. The first has a folding part - for the passage back. The second can be folded in half, securing its halves along the sides. In this case, the Largo becomes a cargo-passenger, with a very spacious cargo hold. To enter the salon from the driver’s side, a comfortable step is provided, which is quite useful for such a high car.

From the very beginning of production, Nissan Largo was equipped with one of two engines: petrol KA24DE, four-cylinder, sixteen-valve, 2.4 liter, 145 hp, and two-liter CD20ETi turbo diesel, 100 hp. Both engines were aggregated with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed “automatic” with electronic control. Automatic transmission had three modes of operation: winter, normal and sports. The drive can be rear or full, the suspension is comfortable enough, well dampens vibrations. Four-wheel drive confidently keeps the car on the road. In the gentle turns Largo fits easily.
The car was produced in six configurations, starting with the poorest one, in which there was nothing besides the electropackage, ending with a very rich one, including climate control, navigation, a glass roof, etc. The "sports" modification of the Highway Star has become especially popular among car enthusiasts due to its special tuning details, improved driving characteristics and increased "stability" on the road.
In September 1996, the Nissan Largo was slightly modernized. There are new versions: Highway Star Touring, a distinctive feature of which are 4 round headlights, and Highway Star II, which has a characteristic grille.
The Largo minibus was launched at the Nissan plant in Spain. In 1999, the car was removed from production.
