Before you buy a NISSAN SKYLINE in Uganda

by edwin



The Nissan Skyline is a line of compact cars, sports cars and compact executive cars originally produced by the Prince Motor Company starting in 1957, and then by Nissan after the two companies merged in 1966.

After the merger, the Skyline and its larger counterpart, the Nissan Gloria, were sold in Japan at dealership sales channels called Nissan Prince Shop.

Buying a Nissan Skyline from a Ugandan car bond

Just in case you want to buy a foreign used Nissan skyline from Japan you may have to pay averagely about UGX 25,000,000 or even more depending on the condition of the car, model, car dealer you use and year of manufacture. However, the quoted price typically does not include Freight to Mombasa port and transportation from Mombasa port to Uganda.

Additionally, it excludes taxes charged by the Uganda Revenue Authority which include Import Duty, Value added (VAT), Withholding Tax, Environmental Levy, Infrastructure Levy, and Registration Fees.

These costs may end up increasing your final cost of Nissan skyline. For example a 2008 Nissan skyline costing around $ 4,235 will have a CIF of $ 5,645 (UGX 19,479,653) plus all the taxes (UGX 18,731,687) making the final cost of UGX 38,211,340.

Briefly about the interior of a Nissan skyline

Featuring four seats and a decent trunk, the Nissan Skyline GT-R is actually one of the few top-performers that are quite useful in everyday driving.

The interior is simple, but tastefully styled, with all controls in easy reach. Even up to speeds in excess of 75 mph the cabin stays remarkably quiet and, apart from the bucket seats, could easily be mistaken for that of a luxury coupe.

Even passive safety is paid tribute to with standard driver's and passenger's airbags, as well as optional side-airbags.
