Ute review: 2019 Nissan Navara N-Trek

There are plenty of model choices in the Navara line-up, so why pick the new 2019 Nissan Navara N-Trek flagship? Afterall, while it has a lot of black and some nice stickers, it’s hard to justify the $3700 price increase over the already well-equipped and good looking ST-X...

We all know your rationale when it comes to buying a medium-sized SUV with all-wheel drive.

Price parity between electric and internal combustion cars is close - Volkswagen

One of the biggest barriers to electric vehicle adoption is price. The Hyundai Kona Electric is $20,000 more expensive than the range-topping petrol model, while the Nissan Leaf is $49,990 before on-road costs – but, according to a Volkswagen executive, the days of expensive electric vehicles are numbered...

Six cars that should be sold in Australia

Australia hosts more than 50 companies selling new cars, SUVs and light commercials through official dealerships. Between them they offer about 350 separate models made in 24 countries.

2001 Nissan Maxima S review

Hello everyone! My name is Kenny and this is my review about the A33 Nissan Maxima. It is a model that I personally fell in love with, and essentially (in my view) it's a forgotten classic in a soon to be forgotten category. Hence this review is to remind every CarAdvice reader of the importance of 4-door sports cars with rear spoilers...

2014 Nissan Micra ST review

I'm an idiot for selling this car. I went on holiday to Adelaide once and had one as a renter and found it a charming little thing to flog around the hills and wineries. I had a tiny driveway entrance at home to deal with, so when it was time to get a car the Micra was top of the list...

2018 Nissan X-Trail ST-L 7 Seat (2wd) review

When our beloved Aussie family wagon of 17 years finally had us doing an expected cardio sessions four times in two weeks, we knew it was time to upgrade, or cancel our gym memberships! After a quick test drive of a sub-$30K ST Nissan X-Trail, I was impressed. The electric steering was light and effortless...

1996 Nissan 200 SX Sports Limited review

I have owned my Nissan 200SX (S14) since 2000 and it impresses me as much today as it did back then.
