The interior seating arrangement can be configured for dining by adjusting the front captain-style seats facing the back, and folding the second row of seats flat onto the seat cushions. Like most newer models produced by Nissan, the Elgrand comes with the “Keyless-go” feature for enhanced user convenience.
