Design Review: Nissan Trail Runner Concept (1997)

What do you get when you combine a sports car and a crossover? You probably guess that the answer lies somewhere in the likes of the BMW X6, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe or the more recent Porsche Cayenne Coupe. But, have you thought about doing it the other way round? Instead of having an off-road vehicle with a coupe-style roofline and sporty design touches, you could take a two-door sports car and give it extra ground clearance, huge wheels and 4WD...

How do you charge an electric car at home?

Electric cars and all of their many acronyms have been buzzwords for some time now, but for the vast majority who don’t own or have never driven one, they remain a somewhat mystifying modern marvel. Sure, price and misconceptions around electric vehicle range figures are definitely affecting electric vehicle (EV) popularity, but for many buyers it’s more that the logistics of charging them are one big question mark...

2007 Nissan 350Z Touring review

I'd owned my Z for 3 and a half years and it had been a joy. I have always been a car enthusiast and it had been time to buy my first interesting car. I'd wanted a rear-wheel drive manual with a characterful engine. I was also at a life stage where backseats were optional. The 350Z fit the bill and was a very affordable second hand...

2012 Nissan Almera ST review

I borrowed this car for a week on the Car Next Door car sharing app while the money pit was getting some work done on it. I needed a cheap run around that was big enough for two child seats and my work gear. This is a model that I admit I have never really taken any notice of, but after driving the car for a week, it has really gown on me...

2018 Nissan X-Trail ST-L (2WD) review

I’m in my late 60’s and have been considering an SUV for some time, because of the ease of getting in and out, and the elevated driving position. The X-Trail wasn’t on my radar until I drove one - my son’s ST 2.5-litre 7-seater. I was impressed, so when I saw this one advertised I bought it without a second thought...

2010 Nissan 370Z review

I had owned the stunning Nissan 370Z for a very short time. It had always been a car of choice in the current markets against the Mazda MX-5, Toyota GT86, along with the Subaru BRZ. I believe it was aimed for the entry-level sports car market for car enthusiasts and people who’re loyal to the brand...
