    Default Caldina or Legnum

    I want to get a new car im looking at getting either a caldina or legnum.

    Ive been doing a bit of searching but just wanted to know a bit of info from anyone that has had one. Pros Cons.

    I also want to know weither you can tow with either? 1400kg is the total of my car and trailer.

    Im looking more towards the Caldina as it comes in manual, 4cyl for economy, i like the look a little more. But then the Legnum is a little bigger, cheaper to buy, probally more capable of towing??? V6 2.5ltr turbo over the 2ltr turbo Caldina.

    Anything you have to add will be good.

    Thanks

    If your towing 1.4 tonnes , get an auto, also IMO the caldinas look like arse, the legnum has much nicer body lines, whereas the caldina looks very "Busy"

    Caldina's look woeful. I doubt they would be any good for towing either.

    Legnum would be my preference out of the two. What about a Stagea if your looking into Jap wagons?

    Legnums came out manual.

    You'll have a great time driving one, but holy fuck they are a cunt to do major work on.
    You can have any brew you want... as long as it's a Datsun / Corolla / What is that?
