Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Nissan 370Z Coupe comparison

It's a good problem to have. You want to buy a new sports car, but you want more poke than either a Mazda MX-5 or Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86 can offer. It can't be front-wheel drive, and your budget rules out more expensive Euros from the likes of Audi, BMW, or Mercedes-Benz...

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...

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

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...
