The Nissan Cima is a large luxury sedan produced by Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. for the Japanese market. The car's name is derived from Spanish for "summit". The hood ornament uses an image of an acanthus leaf. The acanthus leaf was commonly used by classical Greeks to make a wreath for use as a crown.

The Cima has traditionally been the Nissan offering to the Toyota Crown Majesta since its introduction. The Cima in the first two generations was a more luxurious and larger version of the Cedric and Gloria, with the Cima sharing the V8 engine from the President, with later generations being the shorter version of the larger President. The Cima is larger than the Nissan Fuga.

Up until 1989, the Japanese tax bracket dictated a division point at the car being 4700mm long, 1700mm wide, with a 2 liter engine. Both the Nissan Cedric/Nissan Gloria and its archrival, the Toyota Crown were stretched to this very limit. When rumors came that Toyota was developing a larger, wider extension of the Crown, called the Crown Majesta Nissan acted hastily and could not get the wide version ready for the narrow version's launch in June 1987. The half-year gap in development, however, brought about many changes in design. This generation was manufactured as a 4 door hardtop, with no B-pillar between the front and rear side glass windows.

The Y31 Cima is available with a 200 horsepower (149 kW) VG30DE or a 255 horsepower (190 kW) turbocharged VG30DET. The turbocharged version was especially popular, leading the Japanese media to coin the term "the Cima phenomenon". The Cedric Cima was sold at dealerships where the Nissan Laurel could be found in Japan, and the Gloria Cima was sold at Nissan dealerships that sold the Nissan Skyline. The Cima was available with an air suspension.

Following the Y32 Cedric/Gloria's June 1991 launch, the Cima was redesigned and introduced in August 1991. The car is now simply known as the Cima. The styling was more luxury-oriented with Jaguar XJ overtones, noticeably different from the sporty first-generation Cima.

Initially the Cima was only available with the VH41DE, a short-stroke version of the VH45DE found in the first Infiniti Q45. The air suspension introduced in the previous generation was retained along with active suspension that was available on the USA-spec Infiniti Q45. Its appearance was said to reflect a more British appearance, both inside and out. An analog clock, found on most USA-spec Infinitis during the same time period, also appeared in this vehicle. AWD and a V8 engine were also added to the options list.

The primary competitor for this version is the Toyota Crown Majesta which also has a V8 engine.
