Nissan

Making its global debut at the New York International Auto Show this past March, the 2017 Nissan GT-R has been updated with an exciting new look both inside and out, as well as receiving major driving performance enhancements in key areas, which include a significantly reinforced chassis and more power from its twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter 24-valve V-6.

The first Qashqai combined the dimensions and driving dynamics of a smallish hatchback with the high-riding stance of an SUV, and added some body cladding for a suitably rugged look. The current generation, launched to our shores a year ago, uses the same successful recipe, but adds lots of modern technology, improved refinement and a sharp new suit.

It might be new to South Africa, but the LEAF, Nissan’s ground breaking all-electric family car, has been around for a while. First launched in 2010, more than 130 000 units have been sold worldwide – most of those to city dwellers. A single drop in the total car-sales bucket perhaps, but nonetheless a realistic taste of our motoring future. As much as we love the internal combustion engine, electric motors are sure to replace them in due course.
