Nissan Bluebird Overview

The Nissan Bluebird is classed as a mid-sized family car and was produced by the Japanese automobile company Nissan Motors. The Nissan Bluebird replaced the Datsun Bluebird in 1983 when Datsun became known as Nissan. This car was available from 1983-90 in Europe, and was replaced with the Nissan Primera. The Bluebird name is still in use in some countries such as Japan and China. These cars were well built and very cheap to buy. They are spacious cars in both the cabin and the boot. They are not worth considering for used cars these days, but were a good choice a few years back. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Bluebird?

Nissan Bluebird History

This vehicle was no longer called the Datsun Bluebird from 1983, with the introduction of the U11 model and renaming to Nissan Bluebird. The U11 was only sold in the European market for 3 years as the boxy looks were nothing like the aerodynamic, smoother looks of most competitors of the time. The U11 was replaced with the T12 in 1986 and was built in the UK at the Sunderland plant. This car was available as a 4-door saloon and a 5-door hatchback. This car remained unpopular in Europe and was replaced with the T72 in 1987 which had a more European look, with rounder bumpers and body. The Bluebird was discontinued in 1990 and replaced with the Nissan Primera.

Model Types

The Nissan Bluebird was available in 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0L petrol engines, and a 2.0L diesel version. The 2.0L diesel engine was the more economical of the available engines.
