The All-New Nissan Sentra Cup Racing Series Might Be Worth A Look

If you’ve looked at the “Motorsport” sections of Road Test you’ll see that we’ve been covering various racing series’ since 2000. Our beginnings were based on racing and being at the track – first as a photographer and then as a photo editor/photographer/writer for numerous websites. (Most of the links have gone as the sites have disappeared from the web, but I’m re-posting them here as time permits). When I say ‘we,’ I’m not alone on this adventure – my wife is also an avid race fan, photographer and car junkie. Oh, and she also works for a German race car driver in Media and Public Relations. So where am I going with this?

2020 Nissan Sentra SR (Premium) – Road Test

It’s been a while since I had a compact car to drive – other than our own, now departed Ford Focus. Ford may have abandoned the auto landscape in search of people who want trucks and CUV/SUV’s, but there is still a huge market for affordable, reliable cars that don’t cost as much as your mortgage every month. It took Ford 8 years to realize they made a mistake by cancelling the Ranger – maybe they’ve made another poor decision, only with cars this time. Regardless, we’re in the market for a new car and the Nissan Sentra is the type of car that fits into the price point we’re comfortable with. We’ve never even remotely considered the Sentra before now. Why? It’s just never been anywhere near our radar. Will this week’s test drive change our minds? Let’s find out…

Nissan Unveils The New 2021 Armada And 2021 Kicks

NASHVILLE, Tenn./Mississauga, Ont. [2020/12/08] – In May, Nissan announced its global transformation plan called Nissan NEXT. As part of the extensive business, cultural and product plan, the company promised 10 new vehicle reveals in 20 months – with six new vehicles in Canadian showrooms by the end of 2021. Today, Nissan took a big step forward toward delivering that goal with the preview today of the 2021 Armada full-size SUV and 2021 Kicks compact crossover. As a result, a full 80 percent of Nissan’s SUV/crossover lineup will be new or renewed in the calendar year 2021.

2020 Nissan LEAF SL PLUS – Road Test

The Nissan LEAF has been around since the 2010 model year. It got a complete makeover from top to bottom last year and alongside the new looks, it also got bigger batteries and a much-improved range – making it far more useful than ever before. Although I’d never driven one, it was firmly on our list as possibly the next car in our driveway when our present lease was up. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one for a week, but now I have. One thing for sure is – it didn’t disappoint.
