Nissan V250/ V35/ 350Z/Elgrand
Australia saw the 350Z in coupe or convertible form and the used car market will sell very few for under $20,000. If you can’t afford a local-delivery coupe then the low-volume market has managed approval to import virtually identical V35 GT two-doors at around $5000 less. Need less power and/or four doors and to pay less money? Then pick a V250 or V350 GT sedan. These are all ex-Japan and quality varies so choose carefully. If the task is to carry eight people or five plus one in a wheel-chair the Elgrand lives up to its name. These are massive people movers with loads of interior space and excellent headroom. Low-kilometre 2003-06 versions cost $12-16,000.
