Various dashes were used for various countries, trims, and years. Standard used rectangular gauges, while GL and GX used round gauges. Deluxe (DX) could use either, for example all USA models use round gauges.



In Nissan official terminology, the "dash" is the cowl & firewall. But in common usage, the dash is the instrument panel or gauges therein and sometimes refers to the dash pad.
