Nissan Qashqai-R SUV project in the Works

Builders want to make the fastest seven-seat SUV around

I think one of the coolest things Nissan ever did was build the Juke R. That project to the normal four-cylinder powertrain out of a Nissan Juke in crammed in the all-wheel-drive platform from the Nissan GT-R. A similar project is now underway transplanting that GT-R powertrain into another Nissan SUV.

The project is called "MAD" Project SVM Qashqai-R . The powertrain will come from a 2012 Nissan GT-R the people behind the project want to build the ultimate seven-seat SUV.

The builders planned to produce two vehicles with one clad in white paint producing 900 hp and one with black paint producing 1000 hp. Builders plan to keep everyone updated on progress as the project comes together.

Japan to get amped up Versa Note Nismo

Jul 24 2014 10:25am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

GREECE-FINANCE-ECONOMY-DEBT
Nissan has been giving the Nismo treatment to a lot of vehicles lately and we were recently impressed with the oddball Juke Nismo RS. Well according to Nissan, the Versa Note is about to get the Nismo treatment by fall of 2014 but only for the Japanese market right now. Nissan will offer the “standard” Note Nismo and the sportier Note Nismo S. Both come with lower air dams and edgier body panels lined with red trim as well as optional Recaro seats. It can be assumed that the “standard” Nismo w ...

2015 Toyota Yaris Debuts: New Nose, New Dash, Still a Car

Jul 24 2014 9:20am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

SUV's, Crossover Vehicles Surpass Sedan Sales For First Time
When Toyota last redesigned its Yaris subcompact, the company launched the remarkably frank “It’s a CAR!” marketing campaign. We weren’t impressed with the campaign, but the sportified SE model did finish third out of six in a subsequent cheap-car comparison test—pretty good for being “just a car.” For 2015, Toyota has restyled the Yaris inside and out, and the company has provided a look at the car prior to its August on-sale date.

BMW targets empty nesters with higher-riding compact cars

Jul 24 2014 7:32am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Juergen Bergmann likes to spend time in the forests near his home in Hamburg. What the active 72-year-old with tousled graying hair doesn’t like is squeezing himself into low-slung cars to drive there. “Getting in and out of my wife’s BMW convertible is a struggle,” said Bergmann, who used to own a construction company and gave up driving BMW sedans about 10 years ago for a high-riding sport-utility vehicle. With global ranks of older customers like Bergm ...
