Nissan All-New Lafesta Highway STAR Minivan with Spacious dual power sliding doors goes on sale in Japan

Nissan has announced the launch of the all-new Nissan Lafesta Highway STAR minivan, which goes on sale today at Nissan dealers throughout Japan. The redesigned Lafesta Highway STAR is a new minivan featuring stylish design, high functionality and strong environmental performance. Its exterior features a horizontal chrome grille on the front and striking aerodynamic design – expressing sportiness and a bold presence – characteristic of the Nissan Highway STAR series. Enhanced features and equipment include the adoption of dual power sliding rear doors for easy entry/exit and easily operable, versatile seat configurations. Spacious dual power sliding doors, with an opening width of 686 millimeters, offers more convenience when getting in and out of the Highway STAR in small parking spaces or for those accompanied by small children or infants.

The power sliding doors can be easily operated with the Intelligent Key, or the switch on the instrument panel (standard on Highway STAR G, factory-installed option for other grades). A touch sensitive, auto-retract function has been adopted for the power sliding doors to help prevent anything from getting caught in the door. The Lafesta Highway STAR is also equipped with Idling Stop, which helps it to realize best-in-class fuel economy of 16.0km/L under Japan’s 10-15 mode testing cycle for emission certification and fuel economy performance.
