Why Choose a Nissan?
When it comes to a wide array of makes and models to choose from… Nissan has it all.
Nissan offers something for everyone. Just in the car line, there’s the Maxima, the Versa Hatchback and Sedan, the Cube, the Sentra, the Altima, and the Altima Coupe and Hybrid. The gas mileage for all Nissan vehicles ranges from 17 – 38 mpg on the highway, and 12 – 33 mpg in the city.
There’s also a price range for everyone. You can buy a Versa Sedan for approximately $10,000. By the way, the Versa features the highest horsepower and most passenger room in its class. However, if you want a car that will make heads turn, you can get the GT-R Sports car for around $90,000. Nissan used racing technology to help engineer this aerodynamic car. Standard on the GT-R is a 530-hp 3.8 – liter V6 engine, along with a dual-clutch 6-speed transmission. This car won the 2011 ALG Residual Value award for best luxury sports car.
Also in the Sports Car line, is the 370Z Coupe, and the 370Z Roadster. The Kelley Blue Book awarded the Nissan Z the 2010 Best Resale Value Award, and Popular Science gave it their Best of What’s New in the same year.
Nissan was ahead of the game when they introduced their Brake Override Technology, which was designed for emergency stop situations. It has been standard on all Nissans since 2005. All vehicles may be required by our government to come with this same technology in the near future. Also, all Nissan cars have Bluetooth Hands-free Phone technology that is linked in to the vehicle’s audio system, which makes for a safer trip wherever you go. Standard on some cars is the Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition.
Of course, there’s also the LEAF, which some may say, is in a class of its own. As you probably know, the LEAF is 100% electric, which means zero emissions. In addition, the overall safety rating is terrific…5 stars. If you know you want a LEAF, you can go on-line to the Nissan website and reserve one now, if you live in one of the following states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Washington D.C.
To round out their line, Nissan has some great trucks and Crossovers. The trucks include the Frontier, the Titan, and also their NV Lineup. The Crossovers, which include Minivans and SUV’s, are also very impressive with the Juke, the Rogue, the Murano, the Murano CrossCabriolet, the Xterra, the Pathfinder, the Armada, and the Quest.
