2010 Nissan Rogue Krom (Limited) Edition

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.

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 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 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.
