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?
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
Nissan Crossover Reviews
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?
Looking to grow its NISMO brand Nissan has begun affixing performance parts to a new series of models in its lineup, the latest being the quirky Juke. So does this souped-up crossover deserve the motorsports badge? We think you already know the answer.
With a hefty price gap between the well-equipped Santa Fe and Pathfinder is the best family vehicle the more affordable option or is this a case of getting what you pay for?
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
After delivering a lukewarm Versa sedan, Nissan pulls out all the stops (or maybe just some of them) in an attempt to create a competitive hatchback for 2014. Can the Versa Note be spacious, refined and efficient, and still a great value?
Nissan Hybrid Car Reviews
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
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.
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.
