I have no idea what particular version of P12 I have, whether it's an Acenta, Comfort, Sport, Luxury etc. It doesn't help that mine is a Spanish LHD car from 2002, 2.0 petrol with CVT

I was wondering if there is any kind of online resource for this information? I have tried looking, but typically Google only gives links to places with things to sell, nothing useful.

Thanks Thumbs Up

I doubt, there will be anything online that would clearly show, which version you had, there maybe clues, if you know the spec of yours, and compared to what the different versions have..

ideally you'd need a sales brochure from when they were first sold new...not sure if Nissan would be able to tell you from the VIN

interesting car. I have family in Madrid. Very few of these around there now and usually beaten up and badly sunburned lacquer ex. taxis. They seem to like old Renaults and the occasional Rover as a Sunday driver hobby car. Would love to see pics on here. Sorry can't help with the spec. but if it's a shiner well worth keeping I'd say. Apologies to admin. for being off topic (i.e. not being able to help). Mine's a 2002 1.8 Estate P12.

Thank you for the suggestion regarding the sales brochure. I have managed to locate a couple of Spanish brochures from 2002. One shows the Micra, Almera and Primera ranges and the other is specific to the Primera. Hopefully when they arrive I might be able to recognise the version I have. Thumbs Up

You are right, there are very few around in spite of the fact that rust isn't really an issue here. Any that have survived are probably diesels. They were also a popular taxi choice in Barcelona, in fact there's a 1:43 scale diecast model of a P12 in its Barcelona taxi livery available.

Mine seems to have survived quite well, there are no dents, just the usual scratches on the bumpers, and the paintwork still shines. I'm still exploring its mechanical condition having only had it a week or so, but it's obvious that it needs a bit of TLC. I will post some photos when I have had chance to give it a good clean and polish,

Thanks for your interest. Smile

Hello Roy,

No there aren't any badges other than the 'Primera' one on the boot. The registration document doesn't offer any clues either.

Looking at the official information that the government uses to persecute motorists with taxes, I think my choices are:

2.0 Acenta
2.0 Acenta / Line Up
2.0 Acenta Aut / Tekna
2.0 Acenta CVT / Tekna
2.0 Elegance / Sport
2.0 Elegance Aut / Hypertronic
2.0 Sport Hypertronic
2.0 Tekna CVT

It seems a bit confused. My car falls into the Aut, and CVT categories, but I think I'm right in saying that the Hypertronic designation was for the P11 CVT (?)

I now know what version or 'Model' I have, but I didn't get the information from a sales brochure as neither has arrived yet, I found it by reading the Workshop Manual. General Information (GI) section under Identification Information, page 46.

The Identification Plate shows the model number along the bottom. The Manual shows the location of it to be under the right-hand side front seat, but mine is on the right-hand front door pillar. You can decode this number using the info on page 44 under the heading 'Prefix and suffix designations'.

The sixth character of this string will either be a:
'B', which indicates Comfort
'S' which indicates Elegance
'C' which indicates Sport

I have an Elegance model with an H*CVT transaxle, although the Spanish equivalents were called something different rather than just a translation of the same word.

You can also get the paint and trim codes from the same Identification Plate.
