Its hard to believe the Nissan Qashqai has been with us for almost 20 years. This mainstay of the Nissan SUV lineup has been a firm favourite, but now it ventures into its third generation. There have been significant upgrades both in tech and in powertrain, particularly on the economy front. The new Qashqai is […]
It was a mere decade or so ago (12-years in fact) when the all-electric Nissan Leaf first began production and it’s fair to say that with global sales exceeding 600,000 units, it’s been popular.

We were invited to Slovenia, the ‘green heart of Europe’ to check out Nissan’s all-new, 4th generation X-Trail, with its new unique ‘hybrid-electric’ powertrain and e-4ORCE AWD system. It is an adventurous combination that delivers an ‘EV-like’ driving experience on all terrains, without the need to plug in. With over 21,000 units already gracing NZ […]
