4 Reasons You Should Drive a Nissan
Nissans are more popular than ever before. In 2015, the company set a record with 1,351,420 total sales, which is a 6.4 percent increase from 2014. The following are just a few reasons why people are choosing to drive a Nissan.
Nissan is constantly working with new technology to help make your drive smooth and safe. Many vehicles come with blind spot warning, which alerts the driver if there are vehicles in the blind spots behind the car.
Another smart feature that comes on many new Nissan vehicles is emergency assist for pedal misapplication. With this feature, the vehicle detects nearby obstacles such as pedestrians, vehicles, or walls and warns the driver if the accelerator is pressed too strong. If the system believes a collision is imminent, it will also automatically apply the brakes.
Comfort and Style Together
Whether you’re driving to work or running errands, you want the time spent in your car to be comfortable, and Nissan is always looking for ways to do just that. This includes zero-gravity inspired seats to help relieve fatigue on long drives and seat heaters that work fast and stay warm to keep you comfortable on those cold days.
On the outside, Nissan is beginning to implement a special scratch shield on its new cars. Not only does this clear coat help the car keep its shiny new look for a longer period of time, it also repairs fine scratches.
Excellent Fuel Economy
If you’re looking to save money at the gas pump, Nissan has plenty of options to help you out. Sedans have always been known for their good fuel economy, and cars such as the Sentra and Versa are no different. The four-cylinder Sentra gets an estimated 30 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway. Additionally, the four-cylinder Versa get an estimated 31 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway.
However, even if you’re in the market for an SUV, Nissan has great fuel-efficient options. The Rogue four-wheel drive gets an estimated 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. The Pathfinder Hybrid two-wheel drive gets an estimated 25 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. Additionally, the Juke with a six-speed manual transmission gets an estimated 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.
A Safer Ride
Nissan is developing new ways to help make its cars safer. Moving object detection (MOD) detects moving objects around the car and alerts the driver to their presence. Additionally, forward emergency braking helps avoid collisions with pedestrians and other vehicles by warning the driver if it detects a possible forward collision and applying the emergency brake if the driver fails to stop.
If you’re interested in seeing why so many are choosing a Nissan for their next car, get behind the wheel and try one out for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
