The Nissan Rasheen is a small SUV with 4x4 produced from November 1994 to August 2000 by Nissan. It was formally introduced at the October 1993 Tokyo Auto show. It was offered with three different engines from 1.5 GA15DE (94-00) a larger 1.8 liter SR18DE (97-00) and a 2.0 SR20DE (99-00) The car has 5 seats and a rugged style body. It is a very small and short 4WD that looks a bit like a Hummer but smaller.

It had full time four wheel drive due to the installation of Nissan's ATTESA powertrain system, a viscous coupling that determined where to send torque based on traction situations. It was available for sale a couple of years before the Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V, and the Toyota RAV4 in Japan.

The Rasheen shared it platform with the B14 series Nissan Sunny and also used powertrain components from the N14 series Nissan Pulsar with 4WD. ABS brakes were introduced September 1996 with various trim packages introduced during the production period.
