It has continued to grow with strong advances in technology and improving its environmental standards with the Nissan Leaf electric car. To date it has 11 vehicles available to the Australian market including the QASHQAI, X-Trail, Pathfinder, Patrol & 370Z. It has managed to brand itself strongly thanks to cars such as the Nissan GT-R.

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 Juke Ti-S (AWD) review

If you're the type of driver who falls in love with your car, and then drives it for years, investing in it emotionally over time, the decision to find a replacement is more than just a little hard. I bought my '99 model LandCruiser Prado in 2003, and like Gandalf's Shadowfax, he had been my friend through many dangers...

2015 Nissan Navara ST (4x4) review

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...
