Here is the list of all recalls announced around the world in the month of March 2021.
The Nissan Navara is a model sold around the world in different guises. In the United States, the mid-size pickup is called the Nissan Frontier but remained identical to the Navara until a few years ago. Now, for the 2022 model year, there is a new Nissan Frontier in the U.S. but it will now stand separate from the internationally-sold Nissan Navara.
Nissan revealed the 2021 Nissan Patrol Nismo in a global debut that was held in through a virtual event hosted at Expo 2020 Dubai. That’s apt, considering the Nismo SUV is a Middle East exclusive, and has never been offered anywhere else.
Many folks will fondly remember the Xterra. It debuted as a sister model to the older body-on-frame Pathfinder, meant to be a playful more-capable alternative to its sibling, and taking on the Jeep Wrangler and the Toyota FJ Cruiser. It came in bright paintjobs and was a smaller vehicle than the Pathfinder, although both were based on versions of the Nissan pickup platform. And then the Xterra was cancelled a few years ago, for various reasons. It’s back now, as a completely different beast with a hyphen in its name.
The Nissan Pathfinder has been a success story for the brand but its existence is always overlooked. Blame the decent yet forgettable looks of the SUV for that. Nissan aims to change the status quo with the completely new 2022 Nissan Pathfinder. With a stronger design and more tech, the new model adds some zing to Nissan’s global cash-cow.
Nissan Middle East has unveiled the 2021 Nissan X-Terra with a web event that marks the return of the popular Xterra nameplate, albeit with a hyphen in the badge and based on the ASEAN-market Terra.
Emerging markets like India love small vehicles, given the tax benefits provided to cars shorter than 4 metres. Thus the “Compact SUV” market in India is flooded with pint-sized SUVs like the Hyundai Venue and Kia Sonet. Now, Nissan has jumped into this segment with the Nissan Magnite, the brand’s smallest SUV.
Due to the pandemic, every car dealer around is claiming that you can buy or service your car while sitting at home, without actually giving any real details about whether you can actually buy a car with a 100% credit card payment or if they will come service your car for free under your house. We recently did multiple runs to the Mopar service centre due to never-ending warranty issues and there was no sign of any such home service. Then we caught wind of a Facebook ad by the Nissan dealer, advertising “free Thursday pick and drop” service, so we decided to try that out because we absolutely hate wasting time on car servicing.
Nissan unveiled the Z Proto concept today, as the Japanese carmaker finally prepares to launch a replacement for the 370Z sports car. Shown at a virtual event hosted at the Nissan Pavilion in Yokohama, the prototype car features a new retro-themed design inside and out, as well as a V6 twin-turbocharged engine with a manual transmission.
In the Australian car market, car-based pickup trucks or Utes were quite popular. Some of these vehicles, like the Holden Maloo or the Ford’s FPV F6, took the pickup truck to levels of performance unimaginable for the genre. But taking their place are midsize pickups such as the Ford Ranger and the Toyota Hilux, both of which come with aggressive offroad versions. Now Nissan is thinking about cashing in on the combined opportunity of fast pickup trucks by dropping a V8 under the hood of the Navara, giving birth to a NISMO variant.
