Nissan 100NX

Nissan 100NXThe Nissan 100NX came with two engine options, a 1.6 L and a 2.0 L. The 1.6 liter, made from 1990 to February of 1993 had a carburetor fitted which tended to consume excessive fuel as it aged. From April of 1993 onwards, the 100NX was sold with a more efficient fuel injected setup.

– 1.6 carbureted — 89 bhp (66 kW)
– 1.6 fuel injected — 105 bhp (78 kW)
– 2.0 fuel injected — 150 bhp (112 kW)

The 1.6 liter fuel injected version achieved 0-60 mph in 10.5 seconds and had a top speed of 121 mph (195 km/h). The 100NX was mainly sold with a T-bar removable roof in Europe.

The Nissan NX was also sold in the Japanese domestic market as the Nissan NX Coupe. Some models were fitted with T-Tops, whilst others were hardtop. The Japanese domestic NX Coupe’s came with either a 1.5 DOHC carburetted engine (GA15(DS)), a 1.6 DOHC EFI engine (GA16(DE)), a 1.8 DOHC EFI engine (SR18(DE)) or the rare 2.0 DOHC EFI engine (SR20DE). The model was available in automatic or manual transmission. The 1.5 DOHC models were all fitted with digital speedometers, whilst all other engine versions had the standard analogue gage. All Japanese domestic models were fitted with electric windows, air conditioning, power steering, electric mirrors and central locking which locked the doors automatically at 18 km/h whilst driving. The car was different in the Japanese market in that it did not have an ECO option with the A/C system. Almost all Japanese cars have this option but the NX didn’t.
