2021 Nissan Juke Ti Energy Orange review

Here's an idea. Let's make the Juke even more wild by adding an outlandish orange interior. Does that make it better?

2021 Nissan Navara Pro-4X review

The Pro-4X sits at the top of the Navara pile. Is it a true competitor to other top-spec utes?

Retro futurism or caricature? These are Nissan's Pike factory cars.

Nissan's Japanese-exclusive Pike cars once made the New York Times. Legendary design critic, Phil Patton, known for his fascinating insights on everything from Air Jordan sneakers to tyre tread patterns, discussed Nissan's series with the world's most-famous masthead. He dubbed Nissan's retro take on automotive design, "the height of post-modernism"...

Video: Nissan Patrol v Toyota LandCruiser - Drive Car of the Year 2021 Best Upper Large SUV

In the current climate of closed borders and no international holidays, the great Australian road trip has made a heroic comeback.

Video: 2021 Nissan Leaf e+ review

With an extended range courtesy of a more formidable, more energy-dense battery pack, the 2021 Nissan Leaf e+ is going to make a lot more sense for a lot more Australian buyers – especially one-car families. Forty per cent more sense, in fact, in terms of range.

2021 4x4 Ute Off-road mega test

You can see it in the traffic. Four-wheel-drive utes are more popular than ever, and account for almost one in five (17.5 per cent) of all new vehicle sales in Australia based on sales data from January to April 2021. Indeed, between the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux, four-wheel-drive double cab utes have been the top-selling vehicles outright for the past five years in a row, and are well on the way to notching up a sixth...

2021 Honda HR-V RS v Nissan Qashqai Midnight Edition

There are many theories as to the best time for buying a car to garner the most positive deal. Do you wait until the end of any given month? Hold out for a known retail sales period? Or, as in the case of our pair of compact SUVs, wait for a successor to be announced and score the benefit of runout pricing? Both the current generation Honda HR-V and Nissan Qashqai have been on sale for about eight years, and both have recently had their global replacements revealed...

The escape of Carlos Ghosn, the disgraced former boss of Nissan-Renault who is now a fugitive in Lebanon, has come at a high price. While Ghosn is now able to live a relatively normal life in his homeland because Lebanon does not have an extradition treaty with Japan, the US father and son team who helped him flee on a private plane – while the former auto executive was hidden in a box – have been sentenced to up to two years in jail...

2020 Nissan Juke TI review

I’ve always liked smaller cars. The only reason I’ve owned larger cars before is because of the kids, so when looking for a new vehicle, having something that was good for carrying four people for school drop-offs was important...

2020 Nissan Qashqai ST-L review

Let me start off by saying I do not own this vehicle - it is my work vehicle. I am a Service Advisor for a Multi Franchise Dealership so am in and out of vehicles pretty frequently. Previous to this vehicle I was in a Highlander Santa Fe, so I have been spoilt lately! I have been in the Nissan Qashqai now for over two months and have racked up 7000km on the vehicle through work driving and after hours and weekend living...

2006 Nissan Tiida ST-L review

The unloved Tiida. Is this the most underrated car in Australia? I purchased my 2006 Nissan Tiida ST-L hatch in October 2018. I had seen it on a car sales website for about two months before deciding to make the trip from Melbourne to Rye to see it. When I arrived at the (then) owner's house, I saw a very poorly looking, faded black Tiida with grass growing around it...

2009 Nissan X-Trail ST (4x4) review

When the T32 X-Trail succeeded the T31 in 2014, the TV advert showed a family taking a shortcut through a farm. When they arrived at the other side the kids in the back were covered in gunk and milkshake. Even running over a hose was enough to send a cascade of green slime leaping from its container...
