The Best Nissan Cars Ever Made

While Nissan has been known to have manufactured some of the finest cars ever, some cars are better than the rest. Some of the best Nissan cars ever made are:

  1. 1970-1973 Datsun 240Z/Nissan Fairlady Z: Nissan is in the process of manufacturing Z cars for the past four decades. However, this car started the trend. Known for its very low base price, this car remains to be one of the best.

  3. 2011-Present Nissan LEAF: One of the finest electric cars in the market, LEAF would be known to be an industry initiator for factors more than one.
  4. 1989-1994 Nissan 240SX: With a rather low cost and a sporty look, this car was known for its tuning capability. These cars are still popular.
  5. 1963-1965 Datsun 1500: With a powerful engine and a bigger platform, this car had a very distinct Japanese character and a classic touch.
  6. 1999-2002 (R34) Nissan Skyline GT-R: Although never released in the United States, this car remains to be one of its best in the sports category.
  7. 1968-1974 Datsun 510: A rather comfortable family car, this vehicle was known for its very economic pricing and compact structure.
  8. 1990-1996 Nissan 300ZX: Immensely powerful, this car helped Nissan to compete with its peers in the higher horsepower segment.

Nissan Rogue – One of the Highest Rated SUVs This Year in Terms of Safety

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Nissan Rogue - One of the Highest Rated SUVs this year in terms of safety

The much touted 2016 Nissan Rogue has not only drawn people’s imagination in terms of its style and performance, its safety features have attained accolades as well. In fact, the car garnered an overall four-star rating from National Traffic Safety Administration where five stars happen to be the highest rating.

To be more precise, the car got four stars for the front crash examination, five stars for the side crash examination and four stars for the rollover crash examination. The rating is applicable for both the all-wheel-drive and front-wheel-drive of the car.

The car was entirely redesigned for the model year 2014. The 2016 version is a carryover version with very little changes. The safety enhancements include forward-emergency braking added for the 2016 Rogue SL Premium version and a blind-spot warning mechanism modified to radar-based from camera-based.

The normal safety devices on the car include vehicle dynamic control, six airbags, traction control and antilock brakes. The 2016 version of Rogue hasn’t yet been rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety though.

The Nissan Rogue happens to be a compact and crossover SUV that was unveiled in the month of October, 2007. The version has undergone improvement a few times since its launch. It has been ranked as one of the most popular SUVs in the North American markets.

To test drive the 2016 Nissan Rogue, walk into Coast Nissan today.

Nissan Rides the Crossover Wave with High Sales in 2016

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Nissan Rides the Crossover Wave with High Sales in 2016

As customers shift their choice to crossovers, trucks and sport-utility vehicles; the Japanese vehicle manufacturer Nissan Group upped its January sales by a substantial 1.6 percent as compared to the figures posted a year earlier.

While the primary brand Nissan posted a 2.9 percent hike in sales by a whopping 97,220 units; the luxury car manufacturing brand Infiniti sales dipped 11.8 percent to 8,514.

The analysts from Edmunds.com had estimated Nissan Group to post a sales growth of 1.5 percent as against an overall industry dip of 0.5 percent.

Records showed that Nissan registered a growth figure of 18 percent in the month of January for its sales in pickups, crossovers and sport-utility vehicles. The industry trends are indicative of the fact that people have started to prefer the bigger cars over the smaller ones because of the fall in prices of gasoline.

The much popular Nissan Rogue is indicative of the industry craze over crossovers. The fact that the Rogue sales climbed 26 percent is indicative of the above proposition. In fact, unit sales rose to a monstrous 19,762 units. Nissan Rogue has drawn the imagination of a large number of car enthusiasts.

Contrast that with the fact that sales for the mid-size car Altima dropped 16.1 percent to 22,156 units for the same month.

If you are interested in buying any of the Nissan crossovers, step into Coast Nissan today.
