The 2017 Nissan Rogue Has An Exciting New Hybrid Option

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

Nissan Rogue

2017 is looking to be an exciting year for changes and fresh takes on car models. While many companies have dubbed 2017 as the “Year of the Truck,” and there does seem to be a focus on the pickup class, not everyone needs a truck for everyday driving. Many people are searching for family sedans or SUVs that comfortably fit five and still have space for groceries and luggage. That’s why Nissan has been dedicated to reinventing the 2017 Nissan Rogue, and debuted their changes at the Miami Auto Show.

 

The Nissan Rogue is a small SUV that has continually offered the best in family travel. The newest Rogue has a number of improved safety features, such as integrated fog lamps and better rear lights to clearly illuminate the way forward or backward. The on board computer has been updated with Safety Shield technology to help increase driver awareness. This technology actively scans for pedestrians and can automatically brake if a collision is eminent. You also have no need to worry about wandering from your lane while using the intelligent cruise control thanks to lane departure warning systems.

 

The 2017 Rogue is available in three different trim levels that all offer the choice between front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The newest trim level available for the first time is a Rogue Hybrid, which blends the small SUV design with a fuel efficient and environmentally friendly electric motor and gasoline hybrid. This engine provides a chart topping 33 mpg city and 35 mpg highway to ensure you rarely have to stop to refuel. This is an improved 5 mpg over the regular engine, and also helps to lower emissions.

 

Come stop by Coast Nissan to test drive a car that combines versatility and style. Remember, our award-winning service department is also here to help you keep your vehicle in perfect running order!

New Charge Program From Nissan Helps Electric Car Owners Save Money

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

2015 Nissan LEAF

Being more environmentally friendly is a great goal, and there are many easy ways to help out. Anything from recycling to installing more energy efficient lightbulbs can help you save the planet, as well as help out your wallet. An addition to the market within the last few years has been electric cars, which don’t require any gasoline; you just change the battery and drive away. Nissan has been a pioneer in this field with the Leaf, which sports better driving range than any other electric car on the market. Nissan is always looking to help encourage more drivers to make the switch, and their No Charge to Charge programs has brought free charging stations all across America.

 

One of the concerns for many prospective electric car owners is the need to charge the battery pack after driving for too long. One way to fix this problem is simply to improve the mile range of the cars, which has been continually growing as the technology is better understood and implemented. Nissan is going above and beyond the call, however by installing efficient charging stations for its electric car owners.

 

These charging stations are located all around the country, with Nissan estimating there are within 10 miles of 90 percent of owners. The Leaf can be powered from 0 to 80 percent in under 30 minutes, thanks to these highly efficient stations, allowing drivers to quickly power up while at the store or at work. All new Leaf owners will receive an EZ-Charge Full Access Card which offers an unlimited number of charges for the first two years at charging locations, which are easily searchable online or through an app. Nissan estimates this will save drivers around $1,000, as well as reduce emissions. To join in on this unparalleled program, come see us at Coast Nissan to experience the Nissan Leaf.

The Full Size Nissan Armada Is A Luxury To Drive

Monday, September 26th, 2016

NIssan Armada 2

The full size SUV is a unique class of car. These vehicles are designed around one concept: high capacity. And this concept applies to every aspect of the car, most notably though the storage capacity, passenger capacity and towing capacity. The full size SUV is a big step up from the mid-size SUV, which generally cannot effectively tow and the seating can be compressed. The 2017 Nissan Armada is also a big step up from other full size SUVs, featuring luxury interior design and technology while still going toe to toe with competitors in any challenge.

 

The Nissan Armada has often been described as a “double-duty SUV” thanks to its comfortable seating for eight and remarkable ability to tow up to 8,500 pounds. This towing capacity rivals that of many trucks on the market today, and its capabilities come from the 390-hp 5.6-liter V-8 engine. This is a big step up from the previous Armada, and is possible due to the implementation of direct injection and variable valve timing. The car is also available in all wheel drive in seven-speed automatic to navigate any rough surfaces or terrain that you encounter.

 

The true beauty of the Nissan Armada comes in the luxurious interior that features three rows of seating with ample cargo space. The biggest change for this model year is the removal of hard plastic in favor of clean padded surfaces that are more comfortable and nicer to look at. The base model includes a navigation system, a Bose stereo system and a rearview camera to help maneuver when towing or backing out of a parking space. Other packages offer added leather, larger wheels, heated and cooled seating controls and rear entertainment screens for the kids to enjoy. To experience luxury, power and of course high capacity, check out deals on the 2017 Nissan Armada at Coast Nissan. We want to be your dealership!

The Nissan Frontier Combines Great Towing With Maneuverability

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

NIssan frontier

Midsize pickup trucks fill a special niche in the automotive industry. Often people want a truck with a large towing capacity, but without the extra bulk and length of a full-size pickup. Midsize trucks are more maneuverable and easier to navigate tight corners with than larger trucks, but also have a solid sized bed and towing capabilities. Nissan is one of the oldest manufacturers of midsize pickups, so it’s no surprise the Nissan Frontier is the best in its class.

 

The Nissan Frontier is an adventurous truck with seating for the whole crew and a sizeable bed and towing rating. The truck has available 152 horsepower four cylinder or 261 horsepower V-6 engine, the latter of which can tow up to 6,300 pounds, similar in strength to many full-size trucks. Other important options include rear or four-wheel drive, a feature to consider if you expect to do some off-road trekking. You can also choose between a 4.75 or 6-foot bed depending on how much gear your sport of choice takes.

 

On the interior, the Frontier has received a number of improvements in its latest remodel. The truck has removable under-seat storage in case you are hauling some extra equipment and need to room for passengers. Leather upholstery and heated seats are also available, along with a backup camera to help ease into those tight spaces at the parking garage. The truck also has made safety improvements beyond the required front airbags and antilock brakes, including side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags to protect all passengers.

 

The midsize pickup market may be small, but the Nissan Frontier fits it quite well. If you are looking for an adaptable and rugged truck with great maneuverability, come test drive a 2016 Nissan Frontier with the incredible Sales team at Coast Nissan.

The Nissan Maxima Introduces Luxury To The Sedan Class

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

Nissasn max

The full size sedan is one of the most common cars on the market. These four door semi-sporty cars are highly popular among families, due to their affordability, compact size and safety features. But what many sedans lack is luxury and style, and those two words probably don’t come quickly to mind if someone mentions a family vehicle. Fortunately, with the Nissan Maxima, you don’t have to compromise between enjoyment and family friendliness.

 

The Maxima is a bestselling staple of the Mazda lineup and for good reasons. While it may appear to be your average compact car, the Maxima’s plethora of features and gorgeous interior will quickly change your mind. The intricate details really make the interior dazzle; hints of suede, diamond-patterned stitching and a smooth metallic trim all accent the comfortable and roomy seating. The lights set the mood perfectly with ambient lighting for the display and by the doors. The display itself is a nice eight-inch touchscreen with built in route guidance to help navigate to your destination. A subtle but critical addition is the extra sound insulation that minimizes outside noise for a quiet and calm ride every time.

 

Not only is the Maxima luxurious, but its engine power and safety features leave nothing to be desired. The 3.5-liter V-6 monster of an engine effortlessly powers the car forward and outputs a whopping 300 horsepower. The Maxima also has a Drive Mode Selector which can transition the car to sport for better shifting, steering and engine response. Combine this with automated emergency braking and stability enhancement, and you have a safe but fun to drive sedan.

 

If you want a family car infused with just the right amount of luxury and sportiness, come test drive a Nissan Maxima at Coast Nissan. We want to be YOUR dealership.

Nissan Teams Up With Uber To Make Driving Cleaner

Monday, September 19th, 2016

Nissasn leaf

With all the new taxi and app-based driving services nowadays, getting where you want to go is easier than ever. The advent of services such as Uber and Lyft allow people to easily schedule a ride to and from almost anywhere. These companies allow drivers to use their own cars to earn money and help passengers save money on travel. At the end of August however, Uber partnered with Nissan in order to provide a more environmentally friendly ride through the use of the Nissan Leaf.

 

Electric cars are a great way to reduce emissions and save on gas, so they are potentially the perfect fit for a worldwide driving service such as Uber. This new program will allow the best-rated Uber drivers to lease the Nissan Leaf at the lowest rental rates instead of being forced to use their own car. The first test of this program will be conducted in the UK, where emission rates are being cracked down on due to the pollution problems in the city. Over a three-month period, The Energy Savings Trust will monitor 20 Nissan Leafs for driving patterns, user experience and the overall economics of using an electric car. As UK Uber Manager Jo Bertram added, “People already associate Uber with hybrid cars, but we want to go a big step further with fully electric cars.”

 

It’s no secret why the Nissan Leaf is the ideal electric car for this project; the car was a pioneer in affordable and efficient electric car manufacturing. The Nissan Leaf was one of the first electric cars available, and since its debut in 2011 Nissan has only been improving the Leaf through newer technology. For the 2016 model year, the Leaf has the highest range of any electric car, which will help it manage any farther away destinations for Uber. To see how Nissan is breaking ground with this car both in 2011 and 2016, come test drive one for yourself at Coast Nissan.

The Nissan 370z Continues To Amaze With Its Flawless Design

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

Nissan 370z

Sometimes tried-and-true is simply the best way to go. After all, there has to be a reason behind success. Well, that’s the way Nissan has designed the Nissan 370z. The best-selling sports car has followed the same simple formula for success for 46 years, with critical acclaim and great reviews always in tow. The Nissan 370z is an attractively priced and designed sports car with a powerful engine that inspires with every drive.

 

It’s not often you can describe a 2016 and 1970 model with the same adjectives. The 370z features a six-cylinder engine, short deck with long hood, a classic fastback roofline and rear hatch in all of its versions. While the car may have received some updates to the on-board computer and improvements to interior seating over the years, not much has changed about the 370z, and that’s a good thing. The design choices have stood the test of time over four decades, and Nissan continues to believe in the great look and feel they offer to every driver.

 

While other manufacturers have settled for newer engine designs that are smaller and less powerful, the 370z still sports a large-displacement, naturally aspirated and port-injected V-6 engine. This engine doesn’t need any turbo or supercharging to put out the horsepower, torque and rpm range that drivers should expect from a quality sports car. This engine provides flawless turning and precision, along with a quick 0 to 60 mph in just over 5 seconds. The 370z will accurately and quickly navigate curves and turns, with an easy to control and fast responding brake system.

 

To see why Nissan trusts in this perfected recipe. Come test drive a Nissan 370z at Coast Nissan.

Nissan Leaf Offers Greatest Range And Comfort

Monday, September 12th, 2016

Nissasn leaf

The Nissan Leaf was a pioneer in affordable and clean car driving. Arriving on the market in 2011, the Leaf set the bar for electric powered cars. While many car companies now offer their own electric cars, none have the experience and history of the Leaf, and Nissan has adapted the design to best use the newest technology in order to provide a smooth and gasoline free ride.

 

The most important and practical measure of an electric car is range of driving. Electric cars will eventually run out of charge, so keeping the car going as long as possible is important for consumers. For the 2016 model year, the Nissan Leaf is the leader in driving range, and is the only car that delivers over 100 miles. Electric cars are mainly designed to be a town car, getting drivers from place to place in the city. The Nissan Leaf has no trouble travelling on the highway however, just keep in mind how far you go. It also tested better in energy efficiency than its competitors, getting the most distance for its charge.

 

A car wouldn’t be anything without great features for drivers and passengers however, and here the Leaf delivers once again. The vehicle sports a spacious interior with generous head and feet room to keep passengers comfy and even includes 24 cubic feet of cargo space to store any luggage. The premium package adds a 360-degree camera and a high quality audio system, as well as heated leather seats for maximum comfort.

 

The upgraded battery capacity and range sets the Nissan Leaf apart from other electric cars. If you are in the market for a green electric car, come visit us at Coast Nissan to find out more about this one of a kind car.

Nissan Is a Performance Brand: The Top 5 Proof Points

Friday, September 9th, 2016

nissan performance

Nissan is blazing an exciting new path and we’re loving the ride.

 

A lot of people would not associate the word “performance” with the global car manufacturer Nissan. We get it. After all, the Leaf is made by Nissan. Can the Leaf be considered a performance car? Probably not.  The Leaf is just the start of the direction Nissan is going, though. We think it’s pretty cool that they can push off their long-developed technologies for electric vehicles to speed ahead in the performance arena. They usually stun with a new car, or a win, at Le Mans, so that’s nothing to sneeze at. And they are great at combining the fuel technologies of tomorrow with performance builds. We don’t see any other car manufacturers that have the same kind of focus and that makes Nissan unique. Here’s more proof that Nissan is owning the reputation of a performance brand:

 

  1. They were rated one of greatest Japanese sports cars of all time.

Maxim magazine ranked the Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 as one of the top sports cars ever coming out of Japan. This car is now considered practically an antique, but it shows that Nissan has a history of performance know-how.

  1. They were a top performer at the Olympics.

Nissan stunned the world with the unveiling of their 2017 BladeGlider prototype in Rio last August, touted to be one of first ever all-electric sports cars. It is the embodiment of future technologies, and demonstrates where Nissan is focusing their brand (on the future!)

  1. They are bringing even more performance to their EVs.

The infrastructure for electric vehicles continues to grow both here in the states and across the pond, and Nissan is keeping up with demand by constantly improving the batteries and other performance factors in their electric vehicles—proving that performance is their mission in every country and for every model.

  1. They are learning from the past and building on their success.

Speaking of the GT-R R32, wait until you see how Nissan has revamped it for 2017. It’s the most gorgeous muscle car we’ve ever seen.

  1. They keep revving their engines.

Nissan clearly understands the power of a powerful engine. You would be hard-pressed to find another automaker that has produced more performance-oriented engines than Nissan. For people who care about going fast, Nissan always delivers the horsepower.

 

Why not find the Nissan of your dreams at Coast Nissan?  Our award-winning team is here to help you.
