Cars you didn’t know you want: Nissan Exa Sportbak

The Nissan Exa isn’t fondly remembered as one of the great and affordable sport coupes. Certainly, the first-generation (N12) that lobbed on our shores in 1983, with its breathless 1.5-litre turbo four making an asthmatic 77kW at a screaming 6500rpm didn't exactly ooze sporting prowess. And its angular wedge-shape, although in keeping with the time, was notable for its distinct lack of curves...

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...

Four-wheel-drive ute mega test: Tub comparison

There's plenty of variety at the business end of the four-wheel-drive ute segment these days. We run through them from top to bottom.

Brother from another mother. We looked at the 2020 Mercedes-Benz X350d in runout this week, but how about its four-cylinder stablemate, the X250d? Let's wind back the clock to when the Mercedes-Benz X-Class arrived and was compared directly to its development partner, the Nissan Navara...

When discussing Australia's dearth of electric cars and their related infrastructure, the debate always comes back to consumer choice – or lack thereof.

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...

1999 Nissan Pulsar SSS review

After having my Pulsar Plus stolen while I was at work one day, there was a N15 shaped hole in my heart. But after a few months a British Racing Green (as I like to call it) SSS showed up on Facebook marketplace. Not knowing how to drive manual yet, I had the seller drive me around the hills. I was happy with what I saw and $1200 bucks later I had a car that my friend drove home for me...
