    1405981800

    Here at Autoblog Canada we often drive the latest new cars, but to be honest, we will always make time to appreciate the classics out there. The Nissan Skyline was a performance staple in its native Japan for nearly 20 years before the company finally unveiled the GT-R to the world in 2008.

    Report: Nissan alters all CVTs to act less like a stretched rubberband
    1405965600

    Among automotive enthusiasts, no one seems to hold a neutral opinion when it comes to continuously variable transmissions. CVTs are either praised for their ability to boost fuel economy or chided for their occasionally poor driving dynamics. Nissan is among the masters of these un-shifting gearboxes in the US, and it uses them in many vehicles in its ...

    Report: Nissan IDX sports coupe future increasingly cloudy [w/poll]
    1405524540

    There's a strong desire among enthusiasts for more inexpensive, lightweight, fun-to-drive, rear-wheel-drive cars to exist in a world that contrasts sharply with automakers' desire to make money.

    1405443600

    Looking for a thrill? You're not the only one.

    Video: YouTuber TJ Smith is your singing Lyft driver in Nissan Sentra ad
    1405209480

    Perhaps you've seen Nissan's latest commercial, promoting the Sentra. It's a fairly simple little spot, showing the compact's driver blaring Billy Idol's Mony Mony, singing along and encouraging other motorists to join in. We'd have been fine had it been left at that. It's a simple commercial that shows the car with a catchy tune and smiling people. ...

    Another class cut-up has graduated from our motor pool. The Nissan Cube's indefatigable weirdness was likely both its chief selling point and its Achilles Heel, but Autoblog sources say that after a six-year run in the US, the niche player has been scrubbed from the Japanese automaker's lineup.
