Best Nissan Cars for Commuting in Boston

Boston has a reputation for being one of the worst cities for driving. If you are going to be commuting in Boston on a regular basis, you need a car that is up to the challenge. Fuel efficiency, fast pickup and quick handling are features that will help you get around downtown Boston Mass. The additions of comfortable seating, on-board navigation and hands-free Bluetooth will help for times when you are stuck in traffic during your commute from Brockton, Framingham or Quincy in a new or used Nissan. There are several Nissan models that have all of these qualifications.

2013-Nissan-LeafHave you thought about the Nissan Leaf?

The Nissan Leaf is an all-electric car and a great choice for commuting. It is quiet but fun to drive, with a low center of gravity and instant torque when you step on the accelerator. It comfortably seats five in a stylish, modern interior. The battery fully charges in just seven hours and gets the equivalent of between 92 and 106 miles per gallon. It is a car of the future, available now.

Hip Crossover – Check out the Nissan Juke

If you are looking for a hip crossover vehicle, check out the Nissan Juke. With a turbocharged 1.6 liter direct injection engine, it is fun to drive and handles like a car, but has a tall profile to give you unobstructed visibility for those times when traffic is congested on the Southeast Expressway in Boston. There is a cargo area under the rear hatch and seating for five.

The Nissan Sentra Allows You To Easily Zip Around Boston

The Nissan Sentra has long been a favorite choice for those seeking a combination of fuel-efficiency and comfort in a moderately-sized and priced package. It gets up to 34 miles per gallon while you zip around downtown. An in-dash navigation system will find you detours when traffic is backed up on I-90, I-95 or highway 24.

If you are worried about driving a brand new car in dense Boston traffic or leaving it in a tightly packed parking deck, remember that Nissan dealers have all of these models in their pre-owned vehicle inventory. Some people prefer to commute in their second car, saving their new Maxima or Z Roadster for weekend driving trips to Cape Cod.
