NISSAN NAVARA REVIEW: http://ow.ly/6JpR309ofke Nissan’s push to return to the top of the pick-up sector begins here with the UK arrival of the new Navara, a much-needed and much-improved entrant into this increasingly competitive segment. The company is rather bullish about its new model, and for good reason, with styling, engineering, efficiency and technology all key reasons why Nissan thinks it can get back to the sector top-spot. Backed by the What Van? Award-winning five-year/100,000-mile warranty, the new pick-up has been designed to combine the durable and reliable requirement of pick-ups with the style and more SUV-orientated driving characteristics in ride and refinement terms that many pick-up buyers look for in a vehicle that needs to perform both weekday work and weekend leisure roles.

Gone is the Juke. Here instead is the 2018 Nissan Kicks. It’s not a one-for-one trade. The Kicks is built for the 33-million large millennial buyer market rather than being a niche vehicle for the subcompact SUV market. Like the Juke, the Kicks has a quirky side, but it also lacks some of the playful characteristics the outgoing model had. Still, it ticks a lot of boxes for a lot of buyers. The Rogue is Nissan’s sales leader in North America, with sales over 403,000 for 2017. It’s no surprise then that Nissan listened to buyers who arrived at dealers and upon seeing how spacious the Rogue is, started looking for something smaller. The Juke was not the answer. The Rogue Sport filled a bit of that gap, but now the Kicks is securely in the space. Like with Juke, Rogue Sport and Kicks are two totally different vehicles aimed at different audiences. Rogue Sport buyers are family starters or empty nesters. They require something comfortable and a little plush with available all-wheel drive. Most importantly perhaps, they are willing to spend a little more to get it than the $17,990 Kicks starting price. Offering two-tone roofs, a safety-centric ad campaign, and an emphasis on value, Kicks is looking to take a bite out of Hyundai Kona, Ford EcoSport, and Kia Soul sales. The company has openly said that they’re expecting 60-percent of buyers to be conquest sales, meaning they decide on a Nissan after owning other brands. What will drive them to the Kicks? With the model, which is new to North America but has been sold worldwide since 2017, Nissan has created an attractive package from the inside out. Starting with how it is viewed at curb height, Kicks designers based in Brazil but imported from North America, Latin America, and Japan were conscious of how the SUV would be viewed by bystanders and café goers in urban situations. They added a rear bumper cover that rises high on the rear to help protect the car from rough roads commonly found throughout the global marketspace.

SPONSORED LISTING From the back, which appears influenced by European mass market car design, dynamic and attractive body paneling gives your eye something to keep it entertained until you reach the signature V-Motion grille at the front of the Kicks. The company’s hallmarks of a floating roof and boomerang headlamps have also made it to the Kicks allowing for two-tone paint jobs for just an additional $150 where the roof and body are two different colors. Nissan has taken the fun a step further offering their Color Studio for the Kicks and filling it with unique colored accents like wheel inserts, air vent rings, and spoiler covers that are genuine accessories. On the inside, Kicks tones down the uniqueness for a mature, well-equipped interior compared to other vehicles in its class. In the place of rubber or hard plastics, you’ll find the Gliding Wing dashboard covered in a leather-like material with contrast stitching. A 7-inch touch screen dominates the center stack but it is less satisfying to use than the available Bose Personal Plus sound system which offers 360-degrees of sound and puts speakers in the head rests of the vehicle for added sound dynamism. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on every trim above the base model. The flat-bottomed steering wheel is a welcome addition to the Kicks, which is low on space as its category suggests but feels roomy and comfortable to the average passenger thanks to NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats. Cargo space behind the second row is some of the best among its competition and it offers best-in-class front head- and legroom. Despite all the space, there’s still only one arm rest in the front row, for the driver, and I found it to be a little too high to be comfortable. Powering the Kicks is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission that delivers fine power in city driving situations. Its 125 horsepower and 115 pound-feet of torque ratings are made better by the vehicle’s low 2600-pound curb weight. The Kicks is easy to get off the line but struggles on uphill climbs and on-ramps, as one might suspect. Once up to speed, passing on the highway isn’t a problem.

The flagship FAW T77 seven-seat SUV will go on sale in China in November, however the pre-bookings will commence from the 17th of October, as per media reports. The T77 SUV is based on the FAW T-Concept that was displayed at the Beijing Auto Show in April 2018. Interestingly, the T77 bears ‘Bestune’ wordmark instead of ‘Besturn’. As FAW has also recently changed the ‘Senya’ wordmark to ‘Senia’ for their other range of vehicles, while ‘Junpai’ has also been renamed to ‘Jumpal’. FAW is in process of heavily revising their product lineup in China making them more synergized to the prevailing consumer demands. While the change of wordmarks is because FAW is willing to launch these models in international markets and want the names to sound ‘English’ rather than Chinese. The 7-seater T77 SUV, will be the biggest and the most expensive SUV by FAW. Compared to the T-Concept, the overall design of the production version has not changed much. More importantly, the characteristic hexagonal recessed large mouth grille remain intact. More importantly the bright flame orange color of the concept has also remained intact. The side profile features black wheel arches, blacked skid plate and floating roof design. At the rear the C-shaped taillights are connected to each other while the dual-tome bumper with dynamic creases hides the tailpipe and houses the rear fog lamps and reversing lamps. The T77 will be powered by a 1.2 liter turbocharged engine producing 143hp, which is similar to what FAW has packed with the recently launched flagship Senia R9 SUV. The transmission options are 5-speed manual & 7-speed DCT, the same as in the Senia R9. In terms of dimensions, the new T77 measures 4525/1845/1615 (mm) and has a wheelbase of 2700mm, which makes the T77 some 20mm longer than the Senia R9 but slightly shorter in width and height. Both R9 and T77 have an exact wheelbase of 2700mm though. The Bestune T77 SUV will be available in different configurations, with options including panoramic sunroof, dual exterior colors (black roof) for premium trims, 17/18/19 inch wheels with low profile tires, LED DRLs, front & rear fog lamps, front & rear cameras and Bosch ABS system etc.
The new 2019 Nissan Sylphy has arrived with refinements inside and out, delivering higher levels of style, comfort and sophistication on the road. Sporting the new V-Motion Grille - a signature design cue of Nissan's latest models, the new 2019 Nissan Sylphy projects a more confident and streamlined image. The refreshed design features a more prominent LED accent accentuating front and back. The front is augmented with projector headlamps with newly designed, eye-catching LED accent lights, as well as redesigned fog lamps. The rear is equipped with new strip-type LED lights, providing the sedan with a more updated look. The new 2019 Nissan Sylphy also features a more sophisticated side profile as a result of new wheels, showcasing a 16-inch twin five-spoke fan blade design, with machine silver and gunmetal finishing. The elevated sophistication extends to the sedan's spacious and comfortable interior, with a new gloss black trim available, and ample seating for five with plenty of elbow, shoulder and legroom. With its neutral classification under the Vehicular Emissions Scheme, the new 2019 Nissan Sylphy is slated to be one of the most attractively-priced, well-rounded Japanese mid-size sedans in town. In conjunction with its launch, Tan Chong Motor Sales, the exclusive distributor of Nissan vehicles in Singapore, is offering three years' worth of free servicing with every purchase. The new 2019 Nissan Sylphy will be available for booking at all Nissan showrooms across Singapore from 15 September onwards.
We’re still waiting for a replacement for the aging Nissan Frontier. In the meantime, Nissan continues to taunt us from abroad with the similarly sized Navara pickup truck. Now, the automaker has given us even more to drool over with the Navara EnGuard rescue concept that debuted at the Hanover Motor Show.
The specially outfitted pickup boasts a number of unique upgrades, including a portable battery pack to power first responder equipment, drone launch pad, 360-degree lighting rig, winch, and more. The concept is based on the Double Cab Tekna version of the Navara, and was designed to showcase the truck’s potential as a rescue vehicle platform.
The Navara EnGuard utilizes prototype battery packs developed from the Nissan Leaf EV’s battery technology. Each one houses seven Leaf battery modules in a weather-proof aluminum housing, and is rated at 2 kilowatt-hours. The packs are constantly being charged when docked in the truck’s bed and are ready to supply power to specialty cutting tools, heavy-lifting equipment, or other rescue gear. Two input sockets and five output sockets are included on each battery pack. Nissan says the packs are efficient alternatives to a conventional gas-powered generator.
The bed also features two pull-out trays made of fiberglass. The top tray can be used for storing lighter items like radios, ropes, and axes, while the deeper bottom tray can be used for larger things like an oxygen tank or life preservers. A pop-up screen displays the video feed from the EnGuard’s onboard quadrotor drone, a DJI Phantom 4. The drone can be used to scout ahead to allow rescuers to better evaluate a given situation.
On the roof of the cab is a 360-degree LED lighting system with blue emergency strobe lights. At the front of the truck is a high-powered winch. The Navara EnGuard is powered by a 2.3-liter twin-turbo diesel I-4 engine, and uses the same ladder frame chassis as the standard Navara. Additionally, the concept truck is raised by nearly 2 inches and features a fully adjustable suspension with nylon bushings.
