2017 Nissan Navara Series II Dual-Cab review

While the design hasn't changed, Nissan's Series II Navara promises a better ride both laden and unladen. But, is it enough to make this a good work and play ute?

2017 Nissan Pathfinder review

It's a fresh new look for a familiar face. The Nissan Pathfinder gets more power and torque, along with better efficiency, but is it enough to bring it to front of mind for buyers?

2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo review

It's the most expensive road-going GT-R ever built. It's also the most technically advanced, but is it worth the extra $110,000 over the standard version?

2017 Nissan X-Trail ST-L 2WD: Sydney to Catherine Hill Bay

Everyone enjoys getting out of the urban jungles and hitting the road. North, south, west, it really doesn't matter as long as you're comfortable. Sadly, we cannot all afford the most expensive and luxurious car for the task, so, compromise is necessary. It's a battle of the ages: Budget versus purpose is generally the main consideration, and that's probably a good thing for the Nissan X-Trail...

2015 Nissan Navara ST (4x4) review

This is an absolutely awesome truck! The ride quality for a ute is amazing. You just gotta love coil spring suspension! It looks the part too. Mine is black, not everyone's choice I guess, but the body shape is accentuated by the dark colour and looks kind of 'Gansta' with the dark tinted windows...

2009 Nissan X-Trail ST (4x4) Review

Bought a used 2009 X-Trail and am glad that I chose it over the Honda CRV. Though CRV is better overall package, it lacks any off road capability of the X-Trail (We visit sandy beaches from time to time). My car with the 2.5L petrol engine with auto transmission has given me an average of 12L/100km around the city and 10L/100km on the highway...

2015 Nissan Navara ST-X (4x4) Review

My Navara NP300 has now traveled 29,000 km. The engine has been getting better and better the more kilometres travelled. I now also only use premium diesel (no truck diesel, engine rattles) Engine a lot quiet now with a lot more power in mid range. The overall fuel economy is averaging 8.4 (car gauge) but the actual figure is 9...

2015 Nissan Juke Ti-S (AWD) Review

As I was sitting in my Nissan Juke Ti-S at The Glen shopping centre car park moments before turning my engine on to leave, a young couple walks past my car, unaware that I was in there. The young lady turns to her partner and says "I've seen this car around and I hate the way it looks. I can't stand it." It's a reaction that over the last year of owning the Juke I have had to get used to...
