Nissan Grand Livina (2008 - Current)
We say:
The uni-body, car-based Grand Livina miles more comfortable than its more prehistoric body-on-frame rivals and with a price below P 1-million, it should prove to be a seller. Sure, diesels aren't available (the 1.8-liter petrol is actually very good) and it isn't as roomy as the Innova, but in the end, we'd rather opt for something much more refined and safe.

A Nissan finally worth owning.
No diesel, small for 7.
