The Nissan Elgrand is the second generation of Nissan’s premium minivan / people carrier / MPV. The Elgrand seats 7 or 8 people depending on the trim level and seat type. The outer 2 seats in the middle are captain style seats rather than a long bench. Where present, the middle seat doubles as an arm rest/table/storage area. Some of the higher trim levels don’t have this middle seat in the 2nd row. The 2 middle row seats can rotate to face the rear of the car. On some of the higher trim level vehicles these seats also come with built in retractable leg rests.
