The Japanese brand will soon start selling its 2010 Nissan Rogue Krom Edition compact city crossover. Known in Europe as Nissan Qashqai, the compact SUV is quite popular there thanks to a nice combination of small exterior that makes it fairly easy to park without losing too much paint on bumpers even in busy cities like Paris and London, adequate fuel economy with proportionally low carbon footprint, and, relatively low price and cost of ownership.
The refreshed 2010 Nissan GT-R super-coupe has just been unveiled at the international motor show in Tokyo, Japan. Since the vehicle was first introduced two years ago and, judging by Nissan’s usual product life cycle, will probably be refreshed sometime next year, the changes to the car are mostly cosmetic.
Nissan’s UK design center in Paddington, London, has created a hard top rear bed cover for the Navara Aventura double-cab truck. While many such constructs usually look horrible making a muscular, sporty truck look like a cheap Chinese piece of garbage, this particular job with its tinted windows that match in color the rear pillars actually looks great.
The 2009 Nissan Maxima family sedan will start at a price of $29,290 for the Maxima 3.5 S base model.
The Commercial Vehicle Show has just closed its doors in Birmingham but the Japanese brand successfully managed to cease the opportunity to get the local public acquainted with its small but powerful Nissan NP300 compact pickup truck. Although definitely not as mean as Ford F-150 and looking almost like a pilot-fish if put next to the gigantic Toyota Tundra, the new truck will probably be an adequate workhorse for those who simply need to haul some minor payload from point A to point B
The new 2009 Nissan Murano crossover SUV will be even smoother than the first-generation Murano, looking more like an overgrown Qashqai / Rogue city car rather than a vehicle, which is supposed to conquer forest lanes, swamps and hair-raising descents of the Rocky Mountains. Well, that’s absolutely okay with me since there is a huge market for impressive-looking vehicles that are good on a highway and can even negotiate a 10-inch snow drift if need be.
The new rear-wheel drive Nissan NISMO 350Z may be looking not as cute as the “ordinary” 350Z does, but it is surely more interesting to look at than the (visually) boring 2007 Audi TT and is certainly more powerful and agile than its more affordable sibling.

The Japanese brand has just announced pricing on its new 2007 Nissan Altima Hybrid sedan. Sporting a hybrid powertrain technology that Nissan has licensed from its archrival Toyota, the car targets the 10 “green states” that offer impressive incentives to residents opting for more fuel-efficient and less polluting means of transportation.
The 2007 Nissan Altima will cost at least two hundred dollars more than the previous model. Since the increase in prices will only compensate rising costs of raw materials and labor, the MY 2007 Altima will be virtually identical to the last year’s model.
The facelifted 2007 Nissan Sentra will sell at a significantly higher price than the outgoing model. According to the Japanese company, the new version of the compact sedan is going to bear a hefty price tag of $15,365.
The price increase seems to be justified by a visible increase both in size (the vehicle is 65 millimeters longer, 113 millimeters higher and almost 91 millimeters wider than the outgoing model) and interior volume: there is clearly more living space than in the last year’s model. Still, judging by preliminary promo photos, there is still too much of cheap plastic on the front panel and the Sentra’s interior still feels more Spartan that I would care to endure.
