1991 Nissan Figaro

1991 Nissan Figaro


Nissan introduced the Figaro at the 1989 Tokyo Motor Show, using "Back to the Future" as its marketing tagline. Figaros were delivered, using a lottery system, with only an initial 8000 units. Styled, according to Nissan, to convey “a delicate feeling of stylish elegance in everyday life” while satisfying “a zestful desire for a good time,” this cutie’s charms put you, your passenger, and every onlooker in a good mood. It’s a happy little car, one that timelessly pays tribute to vintage Italian, French and Japanese microcars. A total of 20,073 Figaros were produced by Nissan in the convertible's single year of series production all with right hand drive.

This 1991 Nissan Figaro is a Japanese-market fixed-roof convertible that was imported to the US in 2020. The car is finished in Topaz Mist over Creme leather and is powered by a turbocharged 987cc inline-four paired with a three-speed automatic transaxle. It is equipped with a retractable white fabric top on fixed pillars as well as 12″ wheels, a CD/cassette stereo, power windows, and air conditioning.

Based on the Nissan Micra, the Figaro was offered in four colors to represent the different seasons. This “Autumn” example is finished in Topaz Mist (7K1) and features a white roof, a roll-back soft top, twin exhaust outlets, Figaro-branded mud flaps, and bright trim and bumpers.
The right-hand-drive cabin features front bucket seats with adjustable headrests as well as a two-place rear bench upholstered in Creme leather.
The three-spoke steering wheel fronts a 180-km/h speedometer and an 8k-rpm tachometer with an inset analog clock along with gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level.
