2017 Nissan GT-R revealed

Nissan announced that they will be unveiling the updated 2017 Nissan GT-R at the New York Auto Show. Now we finally get to get the full details. As we’ve reported on the GT-R previously, the 2017 incarnation will be the most significant to date. We’ll still be waiting at least a couple of more years to see new GT-R model. It’s nearly ten years since the R35 hit the maket. The updated fascia features a reshaped...

2017 Nissan GT-R teased

Here’s another that’s set to debut at the New York car show next week – the 2017 Nissan GT-R R35. The 2017 car will be an update to the current model promising some tweaks to the front fascia. The teaser shows the back silhouette of the car and it doesn’t give away much. It still looks like the rear end of the current generation R35. Nissan has also constantly fiddled with the engine to up output over the years...

Nissan unveils 2014 Sylphy

This here is the new 2014 Nissan Sylphy. My first beef with the car is the name. Why name it so close to horrid things like “selfie” or “syphillis”? My second beef is with the styling. While all the other automakers are featuring sharp looks in their design language, Nissan seems to have simply sharpened the pudgy rounded corners of the previous Sentra a bit. Nissan aims to have the more reserved and posh look...

Hardcore Nissan Juke confirmed

A few months ago, Nissan hinted that it will be building a hardcore Nissan Juke with a GT-R-based concept.  I’m not too sure if the Juke has ever landed on our shores but I haven’t seen one and I haven’t seen a press release from Nissan Philippines about it. Anyway, the Juke’s a mini crossover that Nissan primarily markets in the US.

Test Drive: Nissan Teana

I really don’t believe in that life-begins-at-forty crap. You see, forty means that your life has gone pretty much they way it should’ve been. If you haven’t really accomplished much by this time, then you probably won’t. Careers are supposed to peak at this time. Cars worth millions of pesos are now accessible and is, at times, required for social representation. The downside is that you also begin to consider...

Nissan pays Juke owners for spec error

Nissan Juke owners in the United States should be pretty happy to find checks amounting $400 written to their names. It’s Nissan’s act of contrition for mixing up the specs for the Juke’s fuel tank. The all-wheel drive version really has a 11.8 gallon tank but marketing materials indicate that all Jukes have 13.2 gallon fuel tanks. This is only true for the front-wheel drive version. So that’s basically a...
