Nissan Micra Cup : It’s a lot more fun that it looks

Nissan Micra Cup
A bunch of small subcompacts that barely top 100 horsepower; that doesn’t seem like something you’d want to see on a race track. And yet, for the last four years, the Nissan Micra Cup has been gaining more and more followers with its unique breed...

Nissan ups its performance game not wanting to be left in the dust

In the last 2 or 3 years, brands like Toyota, Ford, FCA and GM have either launched a massive powerhouse powertrain or talked about reviving performance cars. Much has been said and written about these Supras, Bullitts, Demons/Trackhawks/Redeye and Corvettes. And in truth, car...

New Nissan Kicks pricing starts at $17,998

I know we’re not supposed to say the 2018 Kicks is replacing the Juke but there, I said it. Although we enjoyed the Juke’s funkiness and spirited powertrain, we won’t miss it all that much. More than likely, you won’t either. The new 2018 Nissan...

2018 Nissan LEAF First Review

Review: 2018 Nissan Armada Platinum Reserve

2018 Nissan Armada Platinum Reserve
I undertook my longest-ever road trip with this 2018 Nissan Armada. Over five days, it, my family and I covered more than 2,750km. In that time, we became very intimate with one another and like any good relationship, there were both highs and lows. Massive...
