Nissan was established in 1933 in Japan where it is the 2rd largest auto manufacturer. Nissan expanded its products to Australia in the 1950s with the popular Datsun. It has continued to grow with strong advances in technology and improving its environmental standards with the Nissan Leaf electric car. To date it has 11 vehicles available to the Australian market including the QASHQAI, X-Trail, Pathfinder, Patrol & 370Z. It has managed to brand itself strongly thanks to cars such as the Nissan GT-R.

2018 Nissan Qashqai N-Tec review

While we wait for the Ti, the Nissan Qashqai N-Tec is the stand-in flagship of the range – but how does it fare?

2018 Nissan Navara Series III Dual Cab review

Nissan has once again tweaked the dynamic package of its five-link Navara dual-cab pick-ups. Does this new Series III version lift the game in all-round ute quality?

2018 Nissan X-Trail Ti long-term review, report one: introduction

In the second half of last year, we welcomed a facelifted Nissan X-Trail Ti to the CarAdvice Melbourne office's long-termer garage. As with all of our long-term reviews, our time with the mid-sized X-Trail would be spent in assessing its suitability for the modern family, in a market segment packed to the rafters with options...

2018 Nissan Qashqai ST review

The updated UK-made Nissan Qashqai ST remains a comfortable and practical small crossover, though it's not quite the bargain its bigger X-Trail sibling is.

2018 Nissan Qashqai review

The facelifted 2018 Nissan Qashqai gets a fresh look, more kit and new tech. It's a good thing, but is it a standout option in the small SUV segment?

2018 Honda CR-V v Nissan X-Trail comparison

See the full article here. You’re looking at two of the most recognised, popular and practical medium SUVs money can buy — the new-generation Honda CR-V, and recently upgraded Nissan X-Trail. In a market infatuated with design-led offerings such as the Mazda CX-5, this pair stand out with their unashamed focus on family-friendly characteristics...

2018 Nissan Leaf review

The second-generation Nissan Leaf electric car has a longer range and more tech. But questions remain over how much it will cost in Australia, and whether buyers in our market are finally ready to get behind the EV revolution.

2017 Nissan Navara SL Review

See the full article here. Everybody thinks that tradies that buy utes fall into one of two categories — those that buy a ute for work or those that buy one for lifestyle reasons. There's now a middleground of buyer that wants the look and ruggedness of an entry level work ute, but the ability of a lifestyle weekender that can be bought without spending mega dollars...

2018 Hyundai Kona Active v Nissan Qashqai ST

People are drawn to small crossovers for various reasons. Some want extra height and practicality compared to a regular hatchback, while others are drawn to the distinctive design and point of difference. The 'funky' Hyundai Kona from Korea, and the practical UK-made Nissan Qashqai, may nominally be rivals, but they go about the business of being small SUVs quite differently...

2018 Honda CR-V v Nissan X-Trail comparison

You’re looking at two of the most recognised, popular and practical medium SUVs money can buy — the new-generation Honda CR-V, and recently upgraded Nissan X-Trail. In a market infatuated with design-led offerings such as the Mazda CX-5, this pair stand out with their unashamed focus on family-friendly characteristics...

2017 Nissan 370Z Nismo v Holden Ute SS-V Redline comparison

The Commodore name may be living on but the Holden Ute passes away officially on 20 October when production of that most Australian of icons end. And uncertainty surrounding the future of Nissan’s legendary Z-series means the 370Z Nismo could be the last hurrah for a lineage that runs back nearly 50 years – to the original, 1969 Datsun 240Z...

2018 Nissan Altima teased ahead of New York motor show

Nissan has provided a first look at the upcoming Altima sedan, set to debut at the New York motor show later this month. Details about the new Altima are predictably tricky to nail down. Nissan has only provided one shadowy sketch of its latest Camry competitor, but it looks like a much racier design than the last – slightly dumpy – Altima...

2018 Nissan Juke revealed

The updated Nissan Juke has been revealed this week at the Geneva motor show, hinting at a potential upgrade for Australia. While lots of people will look at the new model and ask 'what's changed?', Nissan has tweaked the finish of the V-motion grille to dark chrome, along with similar finishes for the headlight inserts and LED mirror indicators...

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...

2014 Nissan Navara D22 (4x4) review

I bought a new 2014 D22 Nissan double cab (you can still buy them new where I come from) after doing about 360,000km in my Mitsubishi Colt (Rodeo) 2.8D. The reason was very simple: I'd just got married and was thus cash strapped, and staying close to the sea and surrounded by mountainous dunes, you cannot be caught without a 4x4...

2012 Nissan 370Z review

I bought my 2012 MY13 Nissan 370Z in August 2015 from Newcastle, and drove it back home to Melbourne. It had 87,000km on the clock, with many other used 370Zs in my price range at 30,000km but a lot older, and I didn't trust that they'd been maintained regularly. I've come from owning two Nissan Maximas in the past – big long 'boats' that are registered as cars...

2005 Nissan Pulsar ST-L review

A little over a year ago, I posted a review on my Nissan Pulsar. Having driven it for that time and getting my Ps, I've gotten to know the car far better and learnt to appreciate it more. Starting with the appearance, it is still a great-looking car. The Pulsar N16 from 2004–2006 still fits in the crowd...
