The Nissan Juke looks and drives like an SUV but it’s really an economical hatchback at heart.

  1. Nissan Lafesta

If you spot the 2012 Nissan Lafesta and the Mazda Premacy side by side, you’ll be hard pressed to tell the difference. Save for the grille and the logo, everything else is same from top to bottom. This is simply because Mazda supplied the Premacy to Nissan under an OEM agreement and Nissan then rebadged it to the Lafesta Highway Star. It competes with the Toyota Wish, Subaru Exiga, Honda Freed and the Mazda Premacy. Read the full Nissan Lafesta Review here

  1. Nissan Serena

The Nissan Serena is a mixed bag of things. On paper, it ticks all the right boxes such as space, economy, utility and affordability but in reality it underwhelms in power delivery and heavy lifting. People who buy it usually intend to put it through hard work and less of leisure but it appears the Serena excels in the latter. Additionally, it plays in a neighborhood dominated by proven workhorses such as the Toyota Noah, Toyota Voxy, Mitsubishi Delica D:5 and Mazda Biante. However, not all is lost, the Nissan Serena hides a clever punch in its class leading fuel efficiency which can drive long term benefits for the owner. Read the Full Nissan Serena Review here

  1. Nissan Sylphy

Many of us will recall a time when the Nissan Bluebird and the Nissan Sunny ruled the roads, that was back in the 80s, 90s and 2000s. They have now been relegated to history but they were the precursors to the modern day economy cars and much of what they stood for has become the industry standard. They were the forebears to the Nissan Sylphy which inherited the emblems and the standard. The Nissan Sylphy competes with the Toyota Axio, Toyota Allion and Mitsubishi Lancer.

  1. Nissan Teana

The Nissan Teana is one of the most stylish and elegant Japanese automobiles we’ve driven in a while. It drives so well that for a minute, I was mistaken to think it was some exotic German estate. It actually resembles the Mercedes E-Class especially on the exterior. It competes with the Toyota Mark X, Audi A4, Mercedes C Class and BMW 3 Series. Read the full Nissan Teana Review here

  1. Nissan Caravan

The Nissan Caravan now known as the NV350 Caravan is the closest competitor to the popular Toyota HiAce. The dominance of the HiAce is well documented and Nissan has been working hard to change these and the release of the NV350 in 2012 was seen as a big step towards achieving this. Of course the HiAce still remains dominant but the Caravan is steadily gaining ground.
