Popular Nissan Models

Nissan is a worldwide recognised brand and is known for many of its iconic models. At Nissan Automotive we have provided a short overview of a few popular models that you may be interested in if you don’t own one already.


The Nissan Micra is a small family car which has been on the Nissan production line since 1982. The model is currently in its fourth generation and is produced as a 5-door hatchback. Whilst providing good value for money and delivering impressive fuel economy, the interior of the Nissan Micra is actually more spacious than it looks. The steering is light and responsive but the ride can be a little firm.


The Nissan GT-R is a supercar which boasts incredible performance and speed. The model has been in production since 2007. Not only does the car reach an incredible top speed of 196mph in typical supercar fashion, it also handles exceptionally well. The car can accelerate to 62mph from a standstill in just 3 seconds. Unlike most supercars the GT-R actually represents decent value for money, coming in at under £75k.


The Nissan Juke is a medium sized family car. It has been in production since 2010 and has a very distinctive styling. It is built in the form of a 5-door SUV and comes complete with an impressive level of standard equipment. The model represents good value for money but the ride is a little firm and for a family car the boot isn’t particularly large. Fuel economy could also be a little better.
