Nissan aims to protect drivers and pedestrians

Nissan has unveiled a rather interesting looking small car called the Note. All the cars new, Nissan is taking the time to talk more about the technology inside the car than the vehicle itself. The Note will be the first Nissan to use the company's new Safety Shield technology and Around You Monitor.

The system uses four cameras located on each side of the vehicle and an LCD display on the dash to show a view of what's going on all around the car. The idea is that having the screen will help drivers avoid pedestrians and other automobiles.

The Note also has a number of other technologies that make up Safety Shield including blind spot warning, lane departure warning, and moving object detection. All this technology helps drivers beware of other vehicles even if they can't see them physically. There's no indication of when the No will launch or if it will be coming to the United States.

Poisoning the Well: Watch Bret Michaels Croon Nissan Commercial Vehicles to Try to Make You Love One

Jul 31 2014 4:16pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Foisting a hollow, played-out old workhorse on an unsuspecting public is hard work—just ask Bret Michaels’s publicist. Sharing a common challenge, Nissan decided that there could be no better guy to shill its ungainly NV commercial vans than Poison frontman Bret Michaels. It is every bit as random as you’d believe it could be, but the mash-up works.  2013 Nissan NV200 Cargo Van First Drive: Squared Off and Ready for Business 2012 Nissan NV2500 SV High Ro ...

2014 Chevrolet Spark CVT Tested: Quietly Picking Up the Pace

Jul 31 2014 3:51pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Although automakers such as Honda and Nissan have made significant strides in quelling the continuously variable transmission’s more annoying aspects—a tendency to cause engine drone droning and a disconnected sensation between said engine and the drive wheels—we’re still generally unimpressed with the technology. And we find in most cases that the promised real-world fuel economy promised by of CVTs doesn’t translate to the real world. But we can get behind repla ...
