Nissan Road Tests

An affordable sports car that could genuinely rival a Porsche? Maybe Nissan has finally cracked it...
Tue, 13 Jun 2006
With its aggressive, chunky looks and powerful V6 engine, the Nissan 370Z has plenty of wow factor.
Wed, 08 Apr 2009
The 370Z Roadster is every inch the sports car that the 370Z Coupe is. It's fantastic to drive, sharply styled and has an exhaust note to match anything else with a similar price tag.

Until now, Nissan's oddball Cube has only been available as a grey import, but it's now being officially imported.
Tue, 12 Jan 2010
The GT-R might be approaching its tenth birthday, but Nissan shows few signs of retiring its race track veteran. Instead the supersonic coupe is being given a new lease of life.
Tue, 31 May 2016
Nissan hasn't done anything radical with the new Juke - but then it didn't need to. Instead it has listened to existing owners and highlighted what needed improving.
Wed, 09 Oct 2019
It's described by Nissan as a cross between a compact SUV and a sports car. So does the Juke have what it takes to prove a success?
Sat, 10 Jul 2010
The revised Juke may look the same, but there's an impressive new 1.2-litre petrol engine plus more customisation options.
Fri, 30 May 2014
With 200PS from a turbocharged 1.6-litre engine the Juke Nismo aims to be a hot crossover - does it work?
Mon, 21 Jan 2013
The Juke Nismo RS is powered by a 1.6-litre turbo petrol with 218PS. It also gets a new front limited-slip differential, bigger brakes and a new suspension arrangement.
Fri, 04 Dec 2015
The revised Nissan Leaf won’t suit everyone, but if you’ve considered one already then these changes might well help you make up your mind.
Tue, 16 Apr 2013
The new Leaf remains expensive to buy when compared to its petrol and diesel rivals, but it is miles ahead of its electric competition.
Sat, 20 Jan 2018
Nissan gives the all-electric Leaf a better battery for an even bigger range - but is it enough to diminish range anxiety?
Mon, 19 Oct 2015
It's all change for the latest generation Nissan Micra with a striking design and a big improvement in quality.
Wed, 11 Jan 2017
Nissan has given its Micra an injection of pace with the 160SR - but is it genuinely sporty or just a badge.
Wed, 20 Jul 2005
The Micra has become the benchmark for small hatchbacks so does this new version continue that?
Tue, 31 Dec 2002
The little Nissan Micra is one of the best known small cars on the road and its popularity has always been down to its reliability, impressive safety and the fact that it is easy to drive.
Sun, 25 Apr 2010
The likes of the Peugeot 206CC have shown that there's a real appetite for small convertibles in the UK, so why choose the Micra?
Sun, 04 Jun 2006
Does the new DIG-S engine with its supercharger breath some much needed life into the drab Micra?
Thu, 07 Jul 2011
The 2019 Nissan Micra has been refreshed with two new 1.0 litre engines and the option of an automatic transmission.
Thu, 31 Jan 2019
More than any other pick-up on the market, the Nissan Navara straddles the divide between workhorse and SUV.
Sat, 08 Oct 2005
The Nissan Note follows a very Japanese formula, maximising the use of space in a small package. It’s designed to seat four or even five adults in comfort.
Mon, 23 Jun 2014
Designed to rival the versatile Honda Jazz, does the Nissan Note have enough to recommend it over its rival?
Thu, 01 Jun 2006
Nissan is aiming high with the new Note as it looks to rival the likes of the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo in the hatchback market.
Tue, 09 Jul 2013
The Pathfinder is roughly the same size as the Discovery 3 and does pretty much the same job at prices starting £5000 lower.
Thu, 14 Apr 2005
With buyers switching to SUVs, is there a still a place for the standard saloon in Nissan's line up?
Fri, 13 Aug 2004
We put the petrol-powered Pulsar through its paces on UK roads.
Mon, 03 Nov 2014
We find out if the most powerful version of the Nissan Pulsar provides real entertainment.
Mon, 04 Jan 2016
Can a 1.2 litre engine actually haul a vehicle as big as the second generation Qashqai or is your only sensible option the 1.6 dCi diesel?
Sat, 28 Jun 2014
The Nissan Qashqai has been given the 1.3-litre petrol engine from the Mercedes-Benz A-Class in place of the old 1.2 and 1.6-litre units. Is it enough to take on the Kia Sportage?
Wed, 17 Oct 2018
A revamped Renault 1.6 dCi 130 engine brings new technology and much-improved emissions to the Nissan Qashqai range.
Fri, 04 Nov 2011
It's likely you are going to hear a new phrase soon - 'crossover' - it describes the Qashqai, a cross between a hatch and an SUV.
Fri, 23 Mar 2007
The second generation Qashqai shows big improvements in quality and refinement yet it's still practical and family-friendly.
Mon, 13 Jan 2014
Nissan Qashqai gets mid-life update for 2017. Will it be enough to keep it ahead of the crossover pack?
Fri, 23 Jun 2017
If you want a Nissan Qashqai but you find the interior a bit too small for your growing family, the X-Trail is the car you're looking for.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015
The Nissan X-Trail 2.2 diesel has had a power hike with extra torque - does it make this the best model in the range?
Fri, 30 Jan 2004
It may have the same square profile as the original X-Trail, but this new model is far more refined and car-like.
