The Rogue also earned a “basic” rating for its front crash protection.

Jay Leno’s Garage Features Nissan IDx Concept

Jay Leno may no longer be the host of The Tonight Show, but his online car show, “Jay Leno’s Garage” is still going strong. On one of the most recent episodes, he featured the Nissan IDx concept. And, because he’s Jay Leno, he even got to drive the concept on the street.

In the episode, Leno talks with Giovanni Arroba, Nissan’s Creative Design Manager. They talk about the car’s unique design features, like the anodized accent paint on the roof rails, the side exhaust, the carbon fiber hood and rear end, and the unique Japanese Nissan styling.

Once Leno and Arroba get in the car, you can see how much light it has inside with the large windows on all sides, even the roof. They continue to talk about the car’s features, its toggle switch and even the door pulls latches, which for some reason Leno pulls while driving—and the door opens. You can see Arroba gets pretty nervous, but Leno manages to close the door again.

They make it back to the garage in one piece.

What do you think about the Nissan IDx? Hopefully, in just a few more years, we’ll get to see a production version of this beautiful car.

Next Gen Nissan: 2015 JUKE Unveiled in Geneva

Love it or hate it, the Nissan JUKE makes people talk. When it first debuted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, it immediately garnered attention with its unique, polarizing design. Now, at this year’s Geneva show, we get to see the newest 2015 JUKE.

“New JUKE builds on the qualities that made the original such a success. Its unique crossover styling is even more energetic, and the interior makes a real statement,” said Guillaume Cartier, Nissan’s senior VP of European sales, in a statement.

2015 Juke

Earlier this year, Nissan debuted the Juke Nismo. The 2015 Juke is even more bold!

This compact crossover will get new engine options, including a 1.6-liter DIG-T engine that offers better four-wheel drive. Buyers will also see new alloy wheels, a NissanConnect system, a new audio system, and a dynamic control system.

The JUKE has always been about standing out and now buyers can choose from a wide range of interior themes and customization options to truly be one-of-a-kind. Another big change inside is an increase in cargo space by 40 percent!

Nissan Aims for Detroit Auto Show for 2016 Titan Debut

We’re barely a month out from the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, which was held in January, and we’re already getting news for next year’s show. Nissan has announced that it plans to have the redesigned 2016 Titan debut in Detroit next year.

In speaking with Edmunds, Dan Bedore, Nissan spokesman, said, “You will see it at Detroit Auto Show time.”

The new truck will be taking aim at the heart of the truck market. “The new Titan will get us into 93 percent of the market segment,” said Fred Diaz, in a statement, Nissan’s North American senior vice president of sales, marketing, parts, and service.

2016 Titan Debut

How different will the 2016 Titan be when it debuts?

A lack of options has been one major flaw in the current Titan model. This will be changing for 2016. Edmunds reports that the new truck will have a variety of engine to choose from, including a V6, V8, and a V6 diesel. The truck will also get the option of a regular cab—the current model only allows for either an extended cab or crew cab.

Here at Economy Nissan we are extremely excited to see the 2016 Nissan Titan. We are already counting down the days until next January.
