It’s the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas, so obviously there will be cars, ice-cream trucks and a golf ball that finds the hole. With the Detroit Motor Show shifting to later in the year, the CES attracted the biggest and best of future auto technology. Nissan was there with stunning, future-looking offerings.
It looks mean. It has 530kW and 780 N.m. on tap It costs more than R16m. There will be only 50 ever made, but most of these have been snapped up in advance. It is the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign.
The final production model of this rare monster has been announced and will be on display at the Geneva International Motor Show in March 2020. This production model closely matches the prototype version that stunned and surprised back in June 2018.
Looking for a B-segment hatchback with some oomph? Have a look at the Nissan Micra with 1-litre turbo mill. That would be the Acenta Plus, Tekna and Tekna Plus models with the lowered sports suspension.
In the early/mid-‘80s, among the terrific Skylines and the “wow-what-is-that” early SUV, the Sani, Nissan introduced the Sentra. Very much the youngest child in the large family, smaller, less flamboyant. Ag shame. Yet the Sentra was a very good basic car, not pretty, but handsome in a no-frills, boxy kind of way. A friend flew to Cape Town and rented one. A good drive, enough space, enough power, nice boot.
Welcome back to the in-depth explanation of the Nissan New Vehicle Warranty. In our previous blog, we took at look at situations in which your warranty would definitely not be valid (e.g. when the equipment was installed by a non-accredited technician, etc.). Today, we’ll share more insight into damages and failures that will be exempt from the cover provided by our warranty.
One of the best things about buying a Nissan car or bakkie is the warranty that goes along with it. It’s one of the hallmarks of our brand that we stand by our product and have tailored a warranty that proves that we have faith in our workmanship. However, every contract comes with its fine print, and we believe in being completely transparent. This is why we decided to explain the limitations of the warranty, and when it might not be valid.
The new Nissan Micra is a finalist in Car Of The Year and it is easy to see why.
The new Nissan Micra 5 is the smallest new-model Nissan in SA, but it is neither small nor entry-level. It boasts bold new looks and more space and power than its predecessor. And it’s loaded with features.
The Nissan LEAF has now been around for some time and entered Nissan into the EV marketing with aplomb. They have taken another step towards the mainstay of electric vehicles with the new generation Nissan LEAF with more range and comfort.
Whether it’s the new Z or something else, Nissan certainly stirred up a hornet’s nest at the Nürburgring recently. The matt black and orange shell were that of the 370Z, albeit with six holes added to the front and some differences in the facia.
If there’s one car that needs no introduction it has to be the Nissan GT-R. Who can forget the “Godzilla” of performance cars when the Nissan GT-R appeared on the scene in the late 1980s? Car manufacturers stood in awe as it conquered all with stunning performance and looks to match even the biggest competitors. And that’s without even mentioning the Skyline GT-R models where it all began!
