The Nissan Qashqai is as difficult to define as it is to pronounce. Is it an SUV or a hatchback? The facts that matter is that it is now in its second generation, very good to look at, great to drive, a stranger to the pump and there are seven models to choose from.
Hatchbacks fill an important role in the motoring community and while some are better than others, the new Nissan Micra Active is a true standout. It has what it takes in all departments showing exceptional grip and power to cut through traffic or cruise the open road. Based on reviews from the 2018 model, the latest premium version of the Nissan Micra Active is a completely different animal. We take a look at what makes it a leader within this hotly contested segment.
The 2020 Nissan Patrol has been revealed and it certainly looks impressive with a new look, more features and a two-screen infotainment display. Nissan’s flagship SUV highlights a stylish and chiselled appearance combined with “enhanced luxury features” for a safer, more comfortable ride.

Concept cars are created without the constraints of the market. They don’t have to be practical or competitively priced. They are the blank canvases that allow designers and engineers to create for the sake of creation. Art in other words.
Nissan has published sketches of three concepts, each with five sets of double wheels but no engine, a high tech seat but no steering wheel, and allows you to race against the fastest without really moving much.
For many, playing golf is a way to relax and challenge yourself but now, it’s being used for something a little off the beaten track. In an effort to show off the latest autonomous driving technology, the Nissan ProPilot 2.0 has been applied to a golf ball in a fun demonstration. Their latest driving assist technology helps the ball find the cup every time no matter what.
We are all individuals. We are all the same.
The compact crossover segment is probably the most contested space in the car market. Everyone tries harder to make theirs stand out, and in the end, most crossovers look very similar. Not the same, but there is a preponderance of aggressive scowling horizontal headlights flanking bold grilles.
The long wait is over as the new Nissan Micra Acenta Tech makes a bold statement. Putting the new model alongside its former self, the Micra Active, it undoubtedly looks the part, almost reinvented. From the onset, you can see a bigger, drastically improved and sophisticated look compared to the older version.
While not everything is about good looks, it certainly helps and considering the sheer value for money, we are not surprised that this is Nissan’s new flagship model.
Since its inception, the Nissan Leaf has been a revelation and now, it’s the top-selling electric vehicle in the world. While many other electric car manufacturers have made headlines for all the wrong reasons, the Nissan Leaf has quietly continued their market dominance. They did not achieve that through bold statements or marketing gimmicks but by offering what people really need: a more practical approach to electric vehicles.
Who doesn’t like a multi-purpose tool like a swizz-army knife with a screwdriver, pliers and bottle opener among other functions? That’s exactly what the Nissan Navara represents – a good looking, rugged and practical utility vehicle. The key to success for any utility vehicle is their ability to multi-task and the Nissan Navara exceeds all expectations.
