Many years ago, when the company now known as Nissan was still known as Datsun, they made small and very fuel-efficient cars. One could be forgiven for thinking that Nissan still only makes very small cars. In fact, the Nissan line of vehicles has expanded dramatically, although the company still focuses on fuel efficiency and now makes electric cars in addition to their gasoline-powered cars.
For auto buyers in the Boston area, Nissan offers a wide variety of choices, from practical and roomy to small and sporty, and not only everything in between, but a few things out on the sidelines as well.
When choosing a Nissan vehicle, anywhere in the Boston area, you’ll first have to decide whether you want a consumer/family vehicle or a commercial vehicle. If you want a consumer vehicle, you can then choose between a family car, a sports car, an SUV, a crossover, a mini-van, a truck or the aforementioned electric car.
You may be familiar with most of Nissan’s car line, which includes the popular compact Sentra, the even more compact Versa, and the family-friendly Altima and Maxima, as well as the cute Nissan Cube, which you’ve probably seen more than a few of around Boston.
Of the sports cars Nissan makes, you’ve no doubt seen the Z Coupe over the years, and Nissan now also offers a convertible Z Roadster, along with the ultra-sporty GT-R.
SUVs and crossovers from Nissan include the newest model, the Juke, as well as the Rogue, the Murano and Murano Cabriolet, a convertible SUV. The traditional SUV category includes the Pathfinder, XTerra and Armda.
If you’re in the market for a minivan, you’ll love the Quest minivan, Nissan’s stalwart entry in the minivan category since the beginning.
Nissan trucks bring up the almost-rear of the lineup, with the Titan and the Frontier.
Rounding out what is now a full lineup of consumer vehicles for every need is the Nissan Leaf, an electric car with zero emissions that can be plugged in at home.
Wherever you go, chances are you see a Nissan vehicle on the road, in a parking lot or in a driveway. If you haven’t tried this experiment yet, do it the next time you go out. You’ll undoubtedly count three or even four times as many Nissans as you expected, from cars to trucks to crossovers and probably even a Nissan Leaf or two, in the Boston area.
There’s a reason for that. Nissan creates quality vehicles and Nissan dealers stand behind them. It doesn’t get any better than that.
