2018 Dual-cab ute mega test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Our team have tested eight key contenders (LDV wouldn't give us a T60, and the X-Class hadn't launched in time for this test), to see how they all stack up...

Nissan Comparisons

Mercedes-Benz X250d Progressive v Nissan Navara ST-X comparison

When Mercedes-Benz chose to enter the dual-cab ute market with the new X-Class, it didn’t go it alone. Working partner Nissan lent a hand – and a variety of components from the Navara – to get the job done. The two aren’t exactly the same. The X-Class is more than just a Navara with a three-pointed star on the nose (despite what you might read in our comments), but it’s not entirely different...

2018 Honda CR-V VTi-L v Nissan X-Trail ST-L comparison

The all-new Honda CR-V and significantly updated Nissan X-Trail – two big nameplates in one hugely popular mid-sized SUV segment – arrived in the second half of 2017. And in November, we kicked off comparing these two revised protagonists’ ranges by pitching petrol-powered, all-wheel-driven, five-seater flagships in the form of Honda’s VTi-LX and Nissan’s TI versions against one another...

2018 Dual-Cab Ute Mega Test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Consider, for a moment, that the eight most popular dual-cab models managed 193,000 sales in Australia last year, which equals 16 per cent of the entire new vehicle market...

The 2018 Nissan Terra isn't confirmed for the Australian market, but it's managed to take down the sales-leading Isuzu MU-X in our latest online poll. A not-insignificant 58 per cent of respondents preferred the seven-seat Nissan over the MU-X, which is currently topping its class for sales.

Nissan NV300, e-NV200 campers unveiled for Spain

Nissan has unveiled a pair of self-contained campers at the Madrid motor show, packing two-tone paint jobs and pop-tops in a (suspiciously) similar vein to the Volkswagen California camper. The smaller of the two vans, the e-NV200, is designed to comfortably sleep four people on a weekend away...

2012 Nissan Leaf review

Our family of four, with two active sporty teenagers, needed a second car once the sports training daily jigsaw scheduling of getting two kids at either end of town became too much. The old and faithful manual diesel Prado has served us very well, including multiple lengthy off-road expeditions in WA and NT. However, it is not the best tool in the shed to run around town...

2015 Nissan Pulsar SSS review

As someone who works at a car dealership, I was constantly seeing people buy new cars and drive away. So I decided to upgrade from my ’05 Astra to a Nissan SSS Pulsar. As soon as I sat in the vehicle, I felt like I was sitting in a car of luxury with the leather interior and keyless entry with push-start button. I got the Series 2 version with a CVT transmission...

2011 Nissan Maxima 350 ST-S review

Whether sticking to a budget, new or used, or just a means of getting from A to B, you should love your car. It doesn't have to be loved by anyone else, but it should definitely be loved by you, and maybe a small group of enthusiasts somewhere. From a Lada Riva to a Rolls-Royce Phantom, there is love for cars (sedans in this case) of all sizes, build qualities and budgets...

2014 Nissan Navara D22 (4x4) review

I bought a new 2014 D22 Nissan double cab (you can still buy them new where I come from) after doing about 360,000km in my Mitsubishi Colt (Rodeo) 2.8D. The reason was very simple: I'd just got married and was thus cash strapped, and staying close to the sea and surrounded by mountainous dunes, you cannot be caught without a 4x4...
