2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo: Five fast facts about the 600hp beast from the east

As a bloke with a fair soft spot for a variety of old-school Nissans – and even more so, a bit of a long-time GT-R fan-boy – getting the opportunity to drive one of the most mental road-legal GT-Rs of all time, the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo, was a huge thrill. And while you can watch and read all about it, I wanted to share five facts about the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo you might not have known...

2018 Nissan Leaf to be Australian image builder

By launching the new-second-generation Nissan Leaf technology "standard bearer"  in Australia during 2018, the company aims to reclaim its status as an electric car pioneer and innovator.

Nissan acknowledges 'missed opportunities' with product, addresses regional customers

Nissan in large part cut its teeth in Australia with a strong range of bush-ready vehicles, typified by the previous iterations of the Patrol wagon and cab-chassis.

Mercedes-Benz X-Class v Nissan Navara: Styling face-off

With today's unveiling of the new, first-ever Mercedes-Benz X-Class ute, comes the inevitable 'first glance' comparison with its platform donor, the Nissan Navara. The 2018 X-Class is not the first vehicle to be spun off the Navara, of course. Last year, thanks to the long-running alliance between Nissan and French car maker Renault, we saw the latter reveal its own Navara-based ute: the Alaskan...
