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.

2018 Nissan X-Trail ST-L review

A solid workhorse, with seven seats and a very comfortable ride.

2018 Nissan Qashqai review

The facelifted 2018 Qashqai gets a fresh look, more kit and new tech. It's a good thing, but is it a standout option in the small SUV segment?

2018 Nissan Leaf review

The 2018 Nissan Leaf must remind people that its maker was the world's real mainstream EV pioneer, even if Silicon Valley gets the plaudits. It's not the game-changer its predecessor was, but credit where it's due.

2017 Nissan Navara ST-X N-Sport Black Edition review

The latest in a long line of special edition dual-cab 4x4 utes is this, the 2017 Nissan Navara ST-X N-Sport Black Edition. It's pretty good, too.

See the full article here. You’re looking at two of the most recognised, popular and practical medium SUVs money can buy — the new-generation Honda CR-V, and recently upgraded Nissan X-Trail.

2018 Nissan Leaf review

The second-generation Nissan Leaf electric car has a longer range and more tech. But questions remain over how much it will cost in Australia, and whether buyers in our market are finally ready to get behind the EV revolution.

2017 Nissan Navara SL Review

See the full article here. Everybody thinks that tradies that buy utes fall into one of two categories — those that buy a ute for work or those that buy one for lifestyle reasons. There's now a middleground of buyer that wants the look and ruggedness of an entry level work ute, but the ability of a lifestyle weekender that can be bought without spending mega dollars...

2017 Nissan 370Z Nismo v Holden Ute SS-V Redline comparison

The Commodore name may be living on but the Holden Ute passes away officially on 20 October when production of that most Australian of icons end. And uncertainty surrounding the future of Nissan’s legendary Z-series means the 370Z Nismo could be the last hurrah for a lineage that runs back nearly 50 years – to the original, 1969 Datsun 240Z...

2018 Nissan Navara SL v Volkswagen Amarok Core comparison

You've got a dilemma. You need a workhorse and bells and whistles but don't want to spend mega bucks. You could opt for a poverty pack ute and deal with the missing features, or, you could stump up the cash for the latest work-oriented dual-cab utes from Nissan and Volkswagen...

Video: Nissan uses shrunken carwash for paint testing

The paint on your car leads a hard life. It's constantly being blasted with road grime, baked in the sun, drenched by rain and defaced by thoughtless birds – not to mention the scratches and scrapes it picks up along the way. Cleaning the car at an automatic carwash is an easy way to get all that rubbish off, but it also poses a different threat to your paint job...

2018 Nissan Terra: Navara SUV leaked in China

The Nissan Terra, a new SUV based on the Navara ute, has been photographed completely undisguised ahead of its debut. Although the photos show a Chinese-market vehicle, complete with simplified Chinese characters on the tailgate, we discovered them on a group of Russian and Ukranian sites, including Auto Centre...

Nissan Navara, Pathfinder recalled for nudge bar fix

Nissan Australia has issued a recall notice for D23 Navara and R52 Pathfinder models with factory-fitted nudge bars. According to the company, insufficient bolt torque could cause the roll hoop to rattle or, in the worst-case scenario, detach from the vehicle while driving. This poses a risk to both vehicle occupants and other road users...

2013 Nissan Pulsar ST-L review

I sold my 2003 Toyota Corolla when it became too expensive to run, and I entered the market to replace it with a brand-new car (hatch or sedan). What I was considering on my search were some aspects many other people also consider: Cheap to run Good service Good price (I had a budget of less than $30K) Reliability Keeping the resale value When I came across the promotional offer from Nissan for a 1...

2012 Nissan X-Trail ST review

My Nissan X-Trail ST is great for camping and a surprisingly good tow car. It's also good for MTB riders as the open tailgate makes a great table and shelter for lunches on the ride. We bought the Series II T31 X-Trail ST new after previously owning a Series I from new. The reason we bought the car was because we needed a family wagon – in fact, at the time it was a toss up between a Commodore Sportwagon and the X-Trail...

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...
