Introduction

The Nissan Stagea commonly referred to as the Skyline wagon when the 2.5 turbo is fitted, (although it is based on the similar C34 Laurel platform) is a station wagon originally produced by Nissan in 1996 as direct competition for the Subaru Legacy Touring wagon in the Japanese Domestic Market. There are 3 different versions of the Stagea, WC34 Series 1 (1996 to late 1998), WC34 Series 2 (late 1998 to 2001) and the M35 Series (2001 to 2007).

WC34 Series 1 overview

WC34 Series 1 (1996 to late 1998) came in 2.0l and 2.5l turbo engine choices (all RB series engines). It also has 2WD and 4WD variants. The 4WD system is similar in operation to the Nissan Skyline GTR. Engine power ranges from 114 kW (153 hp) in the 2.0l to 172 kW (231 hp) in the 2.5l turbo. The Series 1 is only available in 4-speed auto. This model bears many similarities to the Series 3 R34 Skyline, this is mainly on the front of the vehicle with the headlights being the same shape only slightly larger, as well as the placement of the air dams and indicator lights being in a similar position to the R34 Skyline.
