2016 Toyota LandCruiser 200 GX v Nissan Patrol Ti : Comparison Review

The traditional off road battleground in the ‘Large SUV’ segment (which has now morphed into ‘Upper Large SUV’ believe it or not), has for decades now boiled down to a two-way stoush between the Toyota LandCruiser and Nissan Patrol. It’s been quite some time though since Nissan fans have been able to enter that stoush on even terms...

Family 4x4 SUV Comparison: Ford Everest v Isuzu MU-X v Mitsubishi Pajero Sport v Toyota Fortuner v Nissan Patrol

The current-day SUV boom isn’t all about softer, more car-like high-riding options designed with little more than a school run in mind. For many buyers out there, a family 4x4 still needs to be a proper off-roader, a tough-as-nails workhorse that blends a modicum of urban comfort with proper skills off the beaten path and has the ability to confidently and consistently tow loads...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mazda BT-50 v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Utes, pick-ups, trucks, dual-cabs, double-cabs – whatever you call them, these big four-door 4x4 haulers are massively important to buyers in Australia. The 4x4 utility segment has boomed in recent years, and it remains one of the strongest parts of the Australian new car market – indeed, roughly one in every 10 vehicles sold in this country will be a four-wheel-drive commercial vehicle...

Nissan Australia still saying no to vans

Nissan Australia continues to rule out a return to the commercial van market, citing the high barriers to entry against established players such as the Toyota HiAce and Hyundai iLoad. Nissan remains a strong van player in many markets, with offerings such as the well-regarded NV200 and (Renault Master-based) NV400 in the UK and the NV350 in Japan, though it hasn’t offered a van product here since the early 1990s...

Nissan Australia moving away from 'whitegoods' image

Nissan Australia managing director Richard Emery says the company is more focused on re-building its brand than simply selling a volume target — a methodology that stands in stark contrast to the policies of previous management. Speaking with Australian media last week, Emery said a big focus for him was shifting internal and external perceptions on what Nissan’s brand represented...

Nissan Pulsar ‘Euro’ gets Tiida-badged facelift for China

The twisted relationship between Nissan’s Pulsar and Tiida badges continues, with the European-market Pulsar this week picking up a facelift for a launch into the Chinese market. The Tiida badge’s presence in Australia was only a blink in the eye of the local market, appearing some years after the Pulsar name was retired - only to itself be replaced by a new-generation Pulsar hatch and sedan...

Nissan Patrol Y62 demand outstripping supply

Massive price cuts to the slow-selling Y62 Nissan Patrol in July last year have completely turned around the big car’s fortunes, with demand now outstripping supply despite the continued lack of a diesel engine. As you can read here, Nissan responded to flagging demand for its range-topper last year by re-aligning it with actual transaction prices or, in plain English, slashing up to $27,500 from the RRP because it was discounting them to that price already...

2010 Nissan X-Trail ST-L (4x4) Review

When I was looking to update my car I wanted one that was reliable, practical and able to do beach driving as well as some basic off-road camp sites. But I did not want/need a big cumbersome 4wd as I still do a lot of city driving around Brisbane. To date I have not been disappointed and it has served all my purposes and more...

2011 Nissan Maxima 250 ST-L Review

Having had Audi's for 12yrs followed by an Outlander for 6, we purchased a 2011 Maxima 250 STL which was 2yrs old having been a QLD country lease vehicle. It has been trouble free over 45000km whilst achieving around 9.8 L/100 with city driving taking around 70% of this total and getting 44000km from the Federal tyres which were fitted on purchase...

2015 Nissan Navara ST (4x2) Review

I have now almost completed 10,000km in my new Nissan Navara ST Dual Cab 4 x 2 and absolutely love the choice I made. I had a budget of $40,000.00 and test drove all makes of 4 door Utes and got the choice down to the new Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara. The Nissan Navara got me over the line in the end because I thought it was finished off better and a little more refined...

2014 Nissan Qashqai ST (4x2) Review

When I learn parkour here in Albert Park, Victoria, I meet Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, Kristen Wiig beside Anne Hathaway and Anna Kendrick. They know me I am a parkour dancer. The Nissan Qashqai is one of the quietest and classiest cars of its kind, as well as one of the most practical and best to drive...
