2017 Nissan Pathfinder first-drive

The Nissan Pathfinder used to be an adventurous, off-road sport-utility vehicle, then one day Nissan decided to switch gears. For better or worse, depending on who you talk to, it’s no longer the same vehicle as it was before 2013; had Nissan renamed it, in fact, I don’t think it would have had any arguments. What was once a rugged icon in the automotive industry has evolved into an everyday people hauler. That means it’s definitely roomier and more comfortable for the kids in the back, but what is it like for the person actually behind the wheel?

Zero emission, 100% crazy: Nissan builds its astonishing BladeGlider

Zero emission, 100% crazy: Nissan builds its astonishing BladeGlider

Nissan's bonkers BladeGlider concept was only ever intended to hint at how electrification and driving enthusiasm could work together, so imagine our surprise to find a fully functional version has been made. Shown off at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2013, the oddly proportioned three-seater looks more like a wingless jet-fighter than a car, but according to Nissan it could well shape the automaker's future EVs.

2016 Nissan Leaf vs 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf: Range-Anxiety

2016 Nissan Leaf vs 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf: Range-Anxiety

Electric cars may be the future, but so is range anxiety. That's the lingering conclusion after testing two of the most popular, competitively-priced EVs on the market, the 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf SE, and the 2016 Nissan Leaf SL. Unlike anything from Tesla's forecourt, you'll get change from $40k even buying brand new, and various subsidies tickle the sticker prices even lower. Question is, are either of these all-electric chariots really ready to join the rat-race?

Nissan’s 2020 fuel-cell plans put bio-ethanol in the tank

Nissan is getting into the fuel-cell car business, but unlike rivals like Toyota and Honda, it's not looking to hydrogen to power its environmentally-friendly vehicle.

2016 Nissan Titan XD Review: Not-quite HD pickup makes cannonball splash

2016 Nissan Titan XD Review: Not-quite HD pickup makes cannonball splash

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is a puzzling truck. Let me explain. I've been driving trucks since I was a teenager, learning the joys of parking a battleship in an urban environment after my transition from country mouse to city mouse for college. In the intervening years I've seen the full-size pickup market blossom into the behemoth-laden bastion of Big Three profits that it's become today, with ultra-luxury trucks now as common as BMW and Lexus sedans at country clubs across the nation.

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Takes On The Top 3 Compact Sedans In America

Small cars are no longer the penalty boxes of old, especially in the compact segment where models like the all-new Hyundai Elantra combine a strong selection of luxury, safety, and infotainment features with sleek design and an affordable price tag. Comfort and class have gone way up at the entry-level, and the end result has been a dogfight between the Japanese automakers that have traditionally dominated the compact space and upstarts from Korean and Detroit that have studied their enemy well.

The 2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO is a track monster

First came the 2017 Nissan GT-R, stepping up both power and luxury, and now comes the version we've all been waiting for, the 2017 GT-R NISMO. Making its debut today - and, fittingly, at the famed Nürburgring - the tuned-up coupe still musters the 600 horsepower of its sibling, courtesy of a 3.8-liter turbocharged V6, but adds greater stiffness, more downforce, and other tweaks that, Nissan claims, add up to "better overall balance" than its predecessor.
