That's a Nissan Cefiro, sold as the Nissan Teana in India.

ID:640 Since model names are not provided in the previous 2 posts, I won't comment ... will wait for some more substantial guesses.

Cheers,

its correct that a similar car sold in india is Nissan Teana and sold elsewhere in the world as Nissan Cefiro.

but this particular car in the photos is neither of the above!

The Nissan Cefiro / Teana sells as the Nissan Maxima in UAE ... and probably the rest of the Gulf too.

However it's a different car from the Maxima sold in the US.

I stand corrected. This is not the Nissan Maxima sold in UAE.

grandkruizer is absolutely right. It's the Renault Safrane V6.

You could atleast state which of the two posts without model names is the correct make.

If its a Suzuki then it might be a Jimmy or a whizkid. I don't think its a Toyota or a Jeep since both don't make any vehicles of that size.
