Reimagined for its ninth generation the 1995 Nissan Cedric brought with it some incredible leaps in refinement, tech, and creature comforts. Given a hearty bump in power, this rear dive saloon has room for five and rides like a dream. Finished in a stately Super Black (KH3) the body is in good shape, other than some minor dings and chips associated with normal use. Best of all, this sedan is offered with an impossibly low 19K verified miles, and benefits from a slate of recent service items.
The inside is far above average for a car of this age. The materials utilized are a massive improvement over the prior generation and have held up well. Moreover, a bigger emphasis on safety was placed with dual SRS airbags as standard equipment. The dash is in good nick and includes a center stack with a touchscreen/tv infotainment screen. This system controls the digital climate and audio functions and works like a charm. The speakers sound decent for their age and fill the cabin with tunes if you preferred not to hear the wail of the turbo six-cylinder. The A/C blows cold and power windows with one-touch functionality assist further with ventilation. Other power equipment includes an adjustable steering column, power driver's seat, power locks, along with power-folding mirrors. Faux wood accents line the interior while the door cards, headliners, and carpets have been maintained well. The seats are upholstered in a soft, gray cloth. Lacking any major imperfections such as rips, stains, and tears they are bolstered for ultimate comfort over long cruises. Between the rears seats, you have a fold-down center console that houses separate climate controls and radio buttons. Cruise control is also included to make day trips and highway commuting more bearable. Interior space is vastly improved in both rows over the outgoing Y32 and the trunk can fit a few suitcases with ease. The clean, straight forward cockpit is a joy to be in. Even by today's standards its accommodations and refinement are top-notch.
Much like its prior generation, Nissan chose to fit a compact, yet powerful V6. The motor itself is completely different from the old iron sump; this 3.0L VQ30DET being all-aluminum produced more horsepower while weighing in significantly lighter. Fresh off a new 12V battery install and fresh oil and filter service, the VQ turns over with a quick twist of the key. It sounds throatier than the outgoing VG and has little vibration that filters through to the cabin. Mated to an automatic transmission power is sent rearward, as it should be in a proper luxury sedan. The slushbox shifts properly and doesn't hesitate or slam into gear. The factory suspension is impressive, and the Cedric sails over large and small road imperfections without blinking an eye.
