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.

Surfing safari in the 2017 Nissan Patrol Ti

When I conjure up images of Nissan Patrols, I imagine them alongside Toyota LandCruisers of old, expanding the boundaries of our great island nation every which way. As I was growing up, they were almost mentioned in the same sentence and were the only options for serious off-roaders. The Patrol's appearance was boxy, functional and unashamedly agricultural...

2017 Nissan Navara ST-X review

The Nissan Navara dual-cab separates itself from the crowd with coil springs at the rear and with the Series II upgrades, it's supposed to be even better than the first version.

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 GT-R Nismo review

See the full article here. Is the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo too much car for the road? Or is it instead, without a shadow of a doubt, perfect? Dave Zalstein jumps in and heads for the hills to find out…...

2017 Nissan Pathfinder ST review

Read the full article here. There are plenty of choices out there for buyers after a seven-seat SUV, and the Nissan Pathfinder is one of the most popular ones. Now, with the introduction of the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder line-up – which has seen a big mid-life update with a new look, revised drivetrain and strong pricing – the new range will undoubtedly remain a popular choice for customers in a segment that includes some thoroughly impressive options, like the Mazda CX-9, Toyota Kluger, Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe...

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...

Kia Sorento GT Line v Nissan Pathfinder Ti v Toyota Kluger Grande comparison

The second-generation Mazda CX-9 shook up the large family crossover segment when it arrived here about a year ago, but it's not the be-all and end-all. For instance, the colossal American-made Toyota Kluger and Nissan Pathfinder may not have the Mazda's badge or chic design, but they're both noteworthy prospects...

Nissan GT-R/C is a full-size remote control car with a difference

To celebrate the launch of Gran Turismo Sport, Nissan has created a GT-R with... a difference. Rather than relying on a driver or conventional remote, the GT-R/C is controlled with a DualShock 4 unit from the PlayStation 4.

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...
