Nissan is gearing up for a busy year with five new and redesigned models coming to us over the next 15 months.

The latest commercial from the company previews the new models, but without much detail. You can see from the picture that not much more than general shape and stance can be learned from watching the ad.

The five vehicles covered up are meant to be a mystery, but we have a solid idea of what each one is. On the far left is probably the upcoming hatchback version of the Nissan Versa beside what appears to be the new Nissan Pathfinder, which we just saw at the New York Auto Show last week.

In the middle it looks like the new Altima, which was also revealed last week. To its right, it must be the updated Nissan Rogue, as that mystery vehicle is sitting high but still sports a small body. Lastly, on the far right is probably the new Nissan Sentra, as it has the same nose styling as the Altima, and is the only other Nissan car that would sensibly adopt the sedans styling.

We think we know what they all are, but we may be surprised when details finally emerge on Nissan’s new car lineup.

2011 Nissan Rogue models have been issued a recall due to possible incorrectly installed circuit boards within the Rogue’s electronic power steering assist control unit.

According to Nissan and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, this defect could cause additional stress on the solder of the terminal to the circuit board and may lead to the solder cracking or even separating from the circuit board. In the event of circuit board failure, the  Rogue’s power steering system could fail. The force needed to steer the vehicle will increase and the risk of an accident will increase as well.

Nissan will contact affected Rogue owners and dealers will service and replace the electric power steering (EPS) control unit for free. The safety recall begins December 2011 and owners may contact Nissan at 1 (800) 647-7261 or contact NHTSA at 1 (888) 327-4236 for more information.

Dread parallel parking? Find yourself driving around for an extra thirty minutes just to snipe yourself a parking spot in a lot rather than on the street? Might have to go grab yourself a 2012 Nissan Rogue, the first vehicle in its class to feature an innovative Around View Monitor, helping the driver parallel park with ease.

The Around View Monitor features four small, superwide-angle cameras located on the front, side mirrors and rear of the vehicle that provides a virtual 360-degree view of objects around the vehicle. The system converts the images taken from the four cameras to create and display a virtual image of the vehicle from above.

And thankfully something like this was designed to be simple to use and simple to understand, otherwise it’d probably just add more headache to parallel parking. It displays the rear-view and front-side view simultaneously, helping see the most worrisome areas when parallel parking.

Check out the video of the Around View Monitor in action after the break.
