How big is the boot? Every SUV in Australia, ranked smallest to biggest

If you're shopping for an SUV, it's likely you want to know a few important things. A good number of seats, an ample amount of power, an affordable price point, reliability, safety and – possibly most importantly – how much of your life you can cram into the boot...

The boss of Nissan Australia is confident the new-car market will recover quicker than expected in the wake of the coronavirus crisis – once production ramps back up to normal levels. “The issue of where 2020 ends up is a really good question,” Nissan Australia boss Stephen Lester told CarAdvice...

Nissan Navara Warrior back in production

The Nissan Navara Warrior is back in production after a two-and-a-half month pause due to the coronavirus crisis, which delayed arrivals of donor vehicles from the Thailand factory. After preparing the Melbourne assembly line last week with a dozen or so examples, production of the Nissan Navara Warrior is due to ramp up from today, with shipments to dealers to recommence from next week...

Australia's most affordable hybrid and electric cars

The list of electric car and hybrid car options in Australia expands with every passing year, but their often prohibitive cost – particularly in the case of EVs – remains a major barrier to their uptake. Hybrid drivetrains are complex, while batteries for hybrid or electric cars are expensive to manufacture, which bumps up the price of hybrid and electric cars across the board...

Struggle street: the cars yet to pass 25 sales so far this year

The new-car market has been competitive and cutthroat for a while, but the first half of 2020 increased the pressure to perform. With production delays due to coronavirus, a raft of exciting new models on the horizon, electric and hybrid cars upping their game and buyers facing financial limitations, every new vehicle on the market had to fight harder than ever to succeed...

The cars we wish were sold in Australia in 2020

We don't want to sound like we're complaining, but sometimes being a small, far-flung, right-hand-drive country has its downsides. While being an Australian certainly has some perks (we'd list them but we just keep coming back to Tim Tams, sprinklers slung over Hills Hoists in summer, and outstanding '80s cricket moustaches), it also means we miss out on a bunch of overseas car brands and models we'd rather like to take for a spin...

Nissan Australia confident 400Z will build on Zed-car legacy

Nissan Australia says it will request as many examples of the 400Z sports car as it can get its hands on, because it believes the new model will be more popular than ever. While the arrival timing and pricing for the Nissan 400Z are yet to be announced, there is widespread speculation it will be in showrooms next year with turbocharged V6 power, which is likely to make it an instant smash hit among performance enthusiasts and the drifting community alike...

Nissan X-Trail through the ages: 2021, back to 2001

Next year, when the new-generation 2021 Nissan X-Trail arrives in Australia, it will have been 20 years since the badge first appeared here. The line kicked off with the 'T30' X-Trail in 2001, and it was this model that would eventually give fans – because it did indeed have fans – the ammunition to suggest today's X-Trail is not a true X-Trail...

2021 Nissan X-Trail revealed

The new-generation 2021 Nissan X-Trail has been unveiled this week, in the form of the American-market Rogue SUV. As with the current model, the global X-Trail SUV is sold in the US as the Rogue, but the two vehicles are largely identical beyond market-specific equipment and trim...
