Nissan Prairie M12 31998 - 2004
Model: Prairie (1982 - 2004)
The second generation of the Prairie was introduced September 1988 and marketed as the Axxess in North America. The second generation Prairie lost some of the innovative features that made the 1st generation standout - the B-pillar was re-instated, the torsion beam rear suspension was replaced with a more conventional coil setup that prevented the rear seats from reclining. The vehicle sold for six years (1990–95) in Canada, but only in 1990 in the United States. The U.S. version had motorized automatic seatbelts while the Canadian versions had manual belts.
The Prairie came with optional AWD and a 2.0 litre engine In Europe, the Prairie was later replaced with the larger Nissan Serena, also originally sold in Japan in 1991.
In Japan, Nissan stretched the rear of the vehicle to better accommodate third seat passengers and load carrying, calling the vehicle the Prairie Joy and offering the vehicle in August 1995. The platform used was upgraded from the smaller Nissan Sunny to the larger Nissan Bluebird. Conversions offered a raised roof over the passenger space up to the rear hatch. As of May 1997, anti-lock brakes and driver and front passenger airbags were offered, along with ultraviolet restricting tinted glass.
