One of the world’s fastest growing automotive brands, Nissan is widely reputed for building reliable vehicles with great value. Nissan’s strong performance and modern styling gives this Japanese brand appeal to families as well as performance vehicle aficionados. This article looks at some of the top 5 Nissan vehicles of all time.
5. Nissan Leaf
The world leader in zero-emission vehicles, Nissan launched the first mass-market fully electric vehicle in 2010. This vehicle, the Leaf, became and remains the best selling electric vehicle of all time.

The Leaf’s taken quite the journey. The first released version of the vehicle could only cover about 73 miles on a single charge. The present Nissan Leaf is equipped with much more power and range than that original model. Buyers can now opt for a 40.0-kWh Leaf or a 62.0-kWh Leaf Plus, delivering around 215 miles instead of the standard 150 miles.
4. Nissan Rogue
For buyers interested in all-wheel-drive functionality, raised seating height, and incredible fuel economy, the Nissan Rogue is a great fit. Equipped with aesthetically pleasing interiors and roomy cargo space, the Rogue is less luxury than some Nissan models but certainly practical.
The Rogue is easy to drive and delivers a comfortable ride. Two rows of seating are standard, but S and SV models are equipped with optional third rows. The Rogue’s Zero Gravity front seats are among the most comfortable in the industry.
3. Nissan Altima
The Altima is Nissan’s best selling vehicle world-wide. With 23 years in production, Altima is undoubtedly one of the most important vehicles in Nissan’s lineup. Available as a mid-size sedan as well as a coupe, the Altima comes standard with Nissan’s driver-assist technology.
The Altima is as popular and beloved as its rivals, the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. Available in a variety of trim options and a 2.5 L 4 cylinder or 3.5L V6 plus Hybrid variant, the current fifth generation Altima is full of safety, performance, and technology features. These, coupled with the vehicle’s incredible fuel efficiency make the Altima a terrific value.
2. Nissan Juke
The Nissan Juke certainly looks interesting, but the vehicle’s drivability and durability are undeniable. Taking the technology of its predecessors, the Juke has improved the overall mileage and comfort to create one of the best compact SUVs on the market.
Similar in size to Nissan’s Versa Note, the Juke’s tall profile and available all-wheel drive sets it apart from its competition. With a 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine, this small but mighty SUV cranks out 188 hp and 177 pound-feet of torque.
The Juke is a blast to drive because of its turbocharged four-cylinder engine. While consumers are divided on the look of this little car, the sales don’t lie. The Juke is one of Nissan’s best selling models, hands down.
Nissan’s GT-R, affectionately dubbed “Godzilla,” embodies all the performance and technology expected from Japanese automakers. The GT-R hit North America’s market by storm in 2009 with the R35 model.
Featuring a smooth dual clutch 6-speed transmission, AWD, and a 3.9L V6 Twin Turbo, the GT-R produces 545 horsepower and can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 2.7 seconds. To really see the GT-R’s limits, you’ll have to visit a race track.
We wouldn’t have today’s model GT-R if it weren’t for the vehicle’s predecessors, including the R32, R33, and R34 Skyline GT-R. The Skyline was built in Japan for the Japanese domestic market and was embraced by North American pop culture when it was featured in the 2003 film 2 Fast 2 Furious.
With a sexy profile and speed to boot, the GT-R is undoubtedly one of the fastest production cars in its price range. If you’re in the market for one of these beauties, except to pay at least $110,000.
Nissan began almost 100 years ago in Japan, and was sold under the Datsun nameplate until 1983/1984. In the late 1980s, Nissan launched their Infiniti luxury line, and in 2013, Nissan announced the re-launch of Datsun. Known for “innovation that excites,” the company is one of the fastest growing full-line automotive brands. Nissan is proud to produce a wide range of passenger cars, trucks, SUVs, and commercial vehicles.
