2018 Nissan Navara ST-X off-road review

While it took Nissan three cracks at getting the Navara's ride and handling tune right, the 2018 Nissan Navara Series III builds on what is an already impressive platform that needed some minor tweaks. We've driven and reviewed the Navara previously, but how does it perform as an off-road lifestyle utility? We hit the road to see how it stacks up when the going gets tough...

2018 Nissan X-Trail N-Sport review

Hey look, its a $2000 black pack that you don't need. Meet the X-Trail N-Sport... now say goodbye and buy the ST-L, instead.

2018 Nissan Terra review

Pathfinder, Patrol, Navara – Nissan has a catalogue of well-known names in the off-roading world. But Terra? That's new.

2018 Nissan Navara ST-X review

Nissan takes another stab at bringing the Navara dual-cab’s load-carrying credentials up to scratch, but is chasing tradies the right choice for a car positioned as a family friendly all-rounder?

Off-road test: 2018 Nissan Navara ST-X

While it took Nissan three cracks at getting the Navara's ride and handling tune right, the 2018 Nissan Navara Series III builds on what is an already impressive platform that needed some minor tweaks. We've driven and reviewed the Navara previously, but how does it perform as an off-road lifestyle utility? We hit the road to see how it stacks up when the going gets tough...

2018 Nissan X-Trail N-Sport review: Style... and substance?

You would be foolish not to at least test drive the Nissan X-Trail if you’re in the market for a medium SUV, for what it lacks in its interior design and overall sophistication, it makes up for with a big focus on practicality, ride comfort and active safety features.

Mercedes-Benz X-Class and the Navara: 5 differences

Scott the difference! What sets these two related utes apart? We've Scott the answers! (Okay, we'll stop there.) We've now got a good assortment of news, reviews, comparisons and videos in the bag for the first-ever Mercedes-Benz X-Class, including a story whose toes this latest video treads on..

2018 Nissan X-Trail TL review

The Nissan X-Trail is a crowd favourite and a name synonymous with SUVs. But at the top end of the range, does the X-Trail represent value for money?

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...

Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign hits the track - video

The limited-edition Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign is a show-stopping take on the R35 GT-R formula, debuted at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Now it's been let loose on Spa-Francorchamps, in a manufacturer-produced video. It might be a special car worth almost $1.5 million, but the driver isn't holding back...

Takata: Nissan sends mechanics to Torres Strait Islands for recall

The massive Takata recall has already forced manufacturers to take extraordinary measures, including targeted online advertising, multiple letters and door-knocking campaigns. The industry has even come together to create a website for concerned owners. According to the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI), there are more than 19,500 vehicles with unchanged alpha inflators kicking about, while around 1...

Three-year warranty holdouts unmoved by Mazda extension

With its decision to move to a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty, Mazda has narrowed the pool of 'mainstream' manufacturers offering three years of coverage to just four: Nissan, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen. We've made clear the CarAdvice position on warranty in the past, but here's a quick recap from Alborz's opinion piece on the issue: It’s time we start asking car companies to up their written warranties...

Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance first-half sales results revealed

The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance has recorded growth across its three member brands in the first half of 2018, shifting a combined 5,538,530 vehicles to the end of June.

2015 Nissan X-Trail Ti (4x4) review

Nissan X-Trail T31 vs T32 It was the first time ever that I bought the same brand and a follow-up model in succession. Am I happy with the decision? Well, you decide. I was fortunate to drive both vehicles to the Grampians National Park two years in a row. On both occasions, we travelled to the western part, where there are many more low- to mid-grade bush tracks to tackle...

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...
