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...

2018 Nissan Leaf spied in production body

The next-generation Nissan Leaf has been spied this week, giving us a better look at what to expect from the Japanese company's upcoming overhaul for its electric hatchback. Despite being shrouded in heavy black-and-white camouflage, we can see the overall shape for the new Leaf, which in most ways looks like an enlarged version of the latest Micra micro car - which isn't sold in Australia, yet...

Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara co-development plans already in the works

The next-generation versions of the Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara pick-ups will be a product of the alliance between the brands, with the strengths of each to be played off against one another to create a sort of mutant mega ute. But don't expect a Mitsussan Triara or Nisubishi Navton..

The Nissan X-Trail has been the latest recipient of the company's semi-autonomous ProPilot driver assistance suite, launching in its home market of Japan this week.

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...
