2019 Nismo Juke RS pricing and specs

Nissan Australia has completed its triumvirate of Nismo performance models after raiding the last production run of the Nismo Juke crossover. The Nissan Juke Nismo RS is a different proposition to the GT-R Nismo and 370Z Nismo sports cars, but aims to capitalise on the stampede towards SUVs...

2018 Nismo Juke RS review

The Nismo team took the GT-R supercar and 370Z sports car to another level of appreciation. Our first drive of its third effort – a performance version of the pint-sized Juke crossover – suggests it hasn’t achieved a Nismo trifecta.

2019 Nissan Leaf preliminary specs revealed, here in mid-2019

Nissan will offer the new 2019 Leaf in a single trim grade when it arrives, with managing director Stephen Lester confirming deliveries of the electric hatchback will start in May or June next year. Although we still don't know what it'll cost – Lester wouldn't offer even a 'crumb' to journalists when pressed on the matter today – we know the 40kWh Leaf will lead the charge in Australia, with further variants like the 60kWh E-Plus likely to follow in due course...

Nissan Navara ST Black Edition review: Driving Margaret River

This latest Black edition is based on the ST, but it really stands out. And, in a sea of dual-cab utes, it’s hard to imagine why anyone wouldn’t choose the Black Edition when looking at utes at this price point. I really like the look of it. It has a tough stance on road and more capability off it, which is exactly where it is aimed.

Nissan GT-R Nismo takes on Dodge Demon - video

Traction or power? It's an age-old debate, but a side-by-side drag race with the Nissan GT-R Nismo and Dodge Demon has brought it back to life. On paper, the drag-focused Dodge should have the Nissan absolutely licked. It makes a whopping 626kW of power and 1044Nm of torque, but the rear wheels are tasked with putting all of it to the road...

The company confirmed to various European media, including Automotive News, it was ceasing production of the well-known hatchback at its Barcelona plant, presumably to liberate demand for other models made there...
