Nissan Car Reviews View All Reviews
The Nissan name was first used in 1933, but the company's history goes back much further. Originally known as Kwaishinsha Motorcar Works, the company produced its first automobile, the DAT, in 1914. DAT later became Datsun (son of DAT) in 1931 and Datsuns went on to become the first mass-produced vehicles in Japan. Americans got their first look at the Datsun in 1958 - the 1200 Sedan. The Datsun 240Z was released as a 1970 model and it became the best selling sports car in the world, selling 500,000 units in less than 10 years.
Nissan Sedan Reviews
The Nissan Leaf is finally (sort of) affordable for 2013. Should you reconsider?
While other automakers are adding style, features and price to their small cars, Nissan is staying the course with simple transportation for those on a budget.
Unlike a lot of cars that sacrifice every day functionality for a cool design, the Cube works with its niche market look to deliver utility for everyone.
Nissan Compact Car Reviews
With fun-to-drive compact four-doors dying out and crossovers all the rage, is the Juke the sport compact sedan for a new automotive era?
Nissan Crossover Reviews
Since the regular Nissan Juke NISMO wasn’t crazy enough, Nissan has given the company’s little crocodile-looking crossover even more.
As the most sold crossover in 2013, the CR-V has a big bulls-eye on its back that the Nissan’s new Rogue has in its crosshairs.
Nissan’s Rogue gets a much-needed shot of refinement and style for 2014. Is it enough to make the crossover a contender?
Believe it or not the Rogue compact crossover is Nissan’s second-best selling nameplate in the U.S. behind the ever-popular Altima midsize sedan. The company just redesigned this family utility for the 2014 model year, but did they do enough to keep it competitive or could it lose silver-medal status?
Nissan SUV Reviews
One of the newest SUVs to transform into a crossover is Nissan’s Pathfinder. Is this 2013 model better off for making the switch… or worse?
Is a redesign for 2009 enough to help keep Nissan’s futuristic Murano SUV ahead of the pack or has a lack of other improvements let it slip from its pedestal?
It took a few days to grow on me, but after driving a fully-loaded 2008 Nissan Rogue SL AWD for a full week, this small utility vehicle has proved itself worthy. Looking strikingly similar to the Murano, the smaller, lighter, more economical Rogue comes in FWD or AWD versions in familiar S and SL nomenclatures.
Nissan Sub-Compact Car Reviews
Nissan introduces a new price leader in Canada that isn’t just affordable, but a decent car as well.
At this year's New York Auto Show, Nissan announced that the Versa would get a facelift for 2015, but that its starting price of $12,800 will remain unchanged -- meaning it will retain its title as the least-expensive car sold in America.
A car designed to offer plenty of space and value comes up a bit short.
One is stylish and fun to drive while the other is spacious and full of value. These two cars have very different ideas of what a subcompact should be.
Nissan Hybrid Car Reviews
Nissan adds a new hybrid variant to the hot-selling Pathfinder this year that is more complex. Is it worth the price increase?
Once a true SUV with a big V8 engine, first the Pathfinder became a crossover and now it’s a hybrid. Forget this being a transformation, Nissan’s utility vehicle has undergone a complete metamorphosis.
Nissan Sports Car Reviews
Nissan slashed pricing on its 370Z sports car this year and that was more than enough reason to take another look.
Not satisfied with merely good enough the folks at Nissan are continuing to improve their already bonkers GT-R. For 2014 the car gets a number of minor enhancements plus a new special model.
Editor-in-Chief and car snob Colum Wood finds the 2013 GT-R entertaining and insufferable... almost.
Redesigned Altima delivers all that you love about Nissan’s mid-size sedan plus class leading fuel economy and plenty of unique features.
Nissan Minivan Reviews
The Quest might not be the innovation leader in the minivan segment, but that’s not to say it doesn’t have some excellent features. And in top-level LE trim it’s arguably it the most attractive for those who need family utility, but want a luxurious package.
Nissan Coupe Reviews
In building the NISMO Z, Nissan followed the proper route for a special edition sports car, adding on all the extra performance goodies and then deleting the unnecessary luxuries, making for a heightened driving experience at little extra cost.
Chances are, if you like the 370Z you’ll love the NISMO version, with more of everything that makes the standard car so much fun.
We drive the SpecV in Japan to see if Nissan’s more extreme GT-R performs like it costs. Out on the track, the answer is undeniable.
Thoroughly redesigned inside and out to be stronger, lighter and faster, the all-new 2009 Nissan 370Z remains true to its classic Z car predecessors while being totally modern and utterly captivating. And, what a bargain it is?
Nissan Convertible Reviews
Unlike the drop-top 350 model, the new Z looks like it was always designed to be a roadster. Plus, it gets all the performance upgrades that give it a thrilling driving experience.

Nissan is discontinuing both the Cube and Murano CrossCabriolet at the end of the 2014 model year. Both of these models served a relatively small niche, the Cube for buyers interested in a small hatchback with odd styling, and the Murano CrossCabriolet for those who wanted a convertible crossover.
