For taxi use in Singapore and Hong Kong, the 2.2-liter diesel motor was still accessible in what was known as the 220C. The motor picked up fuel infusion in 1982. Styling was accomplished with the collaboration of Pininfarina, giving a cleaner picture than the past era. The back suspension was moved up to an unbending connection curl framework.

This, the LD28, was presented in January 1980, to some degree later than petrol forms, and stayed underway until September 1985. It was extraordinarily calm and agreeable for a diesel of this period, and found an expansive extent of private purchasers. For the most part for taxi and armada utilize the more parsimonious 2-and 2.2-liter four-barrel SD-arrangement motors likewise stayed accessible. These lower-spec models got four round headlights.
The two-entryway car was no more offered, and was supplanted by the Skyline-based Nissan Leopard extravagance sports roadster. The 430 arrangement Cedric was amassed and sold in Taiwan as the Yue Loong Cedric 2.0 and 2.4. At initially codenamed 806, it turned into the 807 after a minor facelift. This was the last Cedric to be sold in numerous European markets, as the more conservative (yet spacious) Laurel was presently accessible with the same diesel motor and suited European needs better.
