4x4 Tips: ARB Elements Fridge review

It’s the fridge that can stop people from stealing your beer. Or soft drink, or Manchego, or whatever else you have stored in there. Of course, the ice-cold beer I’m mentioning is enjoyed after you find a nice camp spot and start to unwind for the night. ARB is an Australian-born 4WD aftermarket company renowned for its efforts in innovation, and this fridge is another example of that...

4x4 Tips: Gearing up for the Victorian High Country

The Victorian High Country is a magical place, one of the best off-roading destinations on the planet. It's full of awesome tracks, picturesque camping, and the type of wilderness usually only available when places are hard to get to. If you've got a 4x4, you're well on your way to visiting the High Country in your own time, and on your own terms...

2019 Nissan X-Trail Ti long-term review: Introduction and the first 650km

Touring Queensland and parts unknown with Nissan's popular mid-sized family hauler.

2019 Nissan Patrol Ti-L review

The Y62 Patrol's sales may pale in comparison to the Toyota LandCruiser 200, but all that tells us is how underrated and supply-constrained the big Nissan is. It's a bloody capable luxury 4x4 at a very reasonable price.

Cars We Own: Modifying the CarAdvice Nissan Navara

See the full article here: https://www.caradvice.com.au/722514/turning-the-caradvice-nissan-navara-into-an-off-road-weapon The 4WD ute is fast replacing the sedan in Australia as the go-to family chariot. 15%, or one in every 6 or 7 vehicles new vehicles sold in Australia, was a 4WD ute. That sort of dominance was only bested by the small car (17%) and small SUV segments (17%)...

Nissan Navara ST Black Edition review: Driving Margaret River

This latest Black edition is based on the ST, but it really stands out. And, in a sea of dual-cab utes, it’s hard to imagine why anyone wouldn’t choose the Black Edition when looking at utes at this price point. I really like the look of it. It has a tough stance on road and more capability off it, which is exactly where it is aimed.

2018 Nissan Navara range review: Dual-cabs compared

The Nissan Navara is the latest in our 'range review' series, and the first ute to be presented in this format. It's one of the market's better-known pick-ups, and one we field plenty of questions on. So, if you've decided you're buying one, which should you consider?

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...

2019 electric vehicle comparison: I-Pace v Ioniq v Leaf v Model S v Zoe

Normally a comparison is a great opportunity for us to compare vehicles that sit within the same size or price category, with a CarAdvice-backed winner declared at the end. Given the relative lack of competition within segments in the electric vehicle market, we wanted to do something a little different with a comparison of a cross-section of the passenger EV market – a group of cars from the cheapest to the most expensive...

2018 Nismo GT-R v Porsche 911 GT3 Touring comparison

If you placed me in a room with a Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package and a Nissan GT-R Nismo and ordered me to pick just one to live with for the rest of my days, without first letting me drive them, I’d make a terrible decision. Before these two ultimate tourers even arrived at CarAdvice’s Melbourne office, I had a sneaking suspicion I was going to be on Team Nissan...

2018 Kia Sportage v Nissan X-Trail

The Kia Sportage and Nissan X-Trail are two of the market’s most popular medium-sized SUVs, owning a neat 20 per cent market share between them. What’s interesting about comparing this pair is the different approaches the respective brands have taken. The Kia prioritises visual appeal and a hint of sportiness, whereas the Nissan is all about maximising practicality for a growing family...

2018 Nissan Qashqai ST review

The arrival of the exciting J11 Qashqai Series 2 was definitely one to watch out for. The upgraded standard features and the new front grille have taken it to the next level. I drove the base-model ST for a couple of months and this was my experience. What first appealed to me when I saw the car was the new look...

2015 Nissan X-Trail ST-L (FWD) review

We bought this car because my wife fell in love with it. We weren't looking for an X-Trail, but its look took us by surprise, and after one test drive she was hooked with its comfort to drive. As far as looks and comfort go, we can't fault it. The only issue with the aesthetics is the front left and right blind spots – they're the worst we've experienced to date...

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...
