The Nissan GT-R has always been regarded as world class whenever a new model is released throughout its 46 years of being in the automotive industry. In fact, it has started out a cult especially when it featured the BNR32 chassis which totally took the hearts of the racing world and racing fanatics alike. For 2015, Nissan claims the GT-R to be in its most matured state over the previous models. Now this will take a wild turn as the GT-R has always been regarded as an undomesticated tiger that refuses to be tamed. So why the sudden change?

In short, the 2015 Nissan GT-R now knows how to calm down, hence, maturity. It still is a fast car but it now knows that it does not have to be at the edge of speed every single time the machine starts.

Suspension is now much improved with better balance between the four beautiful wheels. You will also notice a longer stroke with a new front stabilizer. Beneath the visual improvements are adjusted spring rates, revised bushes, and recalibrated electronics which critics think all contribute to the 2015 Nissan GT-R’s now matured, smoother, and refined ride.

The GT-R is recognized for speed. We have seen it go from 480 horsepower to 545 horsepower. But in doing so, Nissan chunks off a portion of the time of acceleration to make it safer. For the 2015 Nissan GT-R, it remains one beast of a car with 600 horsepower but with some refinements here and there to make the ride more accurate regardless of speed.

A new steering pump is installed for the 2015 Nissan GT-R which makes low-speed maneuvering easier while the brakes now feature more linear response. Even the tires got upgraded to a 20-inch Dunlop Sport Maxx GT DSST CTT which not only gives a better ride but cuts down road noise as well.

Test drivers now say that the behavior of the 2015 Nissan GT-R would depend on the driver. Basically, it can do anything with that kind of powertrain but if you drive it like a sedan, it will behave like one.

It still offers the same driving manners, the same user-friendly features and is still offered at a reasonable price. The 5-passenger hatchback is roomy and comfortable, just the way you would want for your car except that you don’t have to worry about oil price hikes as it runs on the road smoothly without it. Nissan LEAF’s squat design is slowly emerging as the iconic car for electric vehicles not only because it is the world’s best selling electric car but also because of its stand out appearance and comfortable ride.

The overall stance of the 2015 Nissan LEAF is complemented by its lighting treatments with its headlights sweeping up front almost reaching the car’s roof while the taillights occupy most of the design at the back. Also found on its front, just above its grille is its charging port.

Inside is a roomy cabin. It has big windows and high roof which makes it easy for passengers to see outside. Its cargo space offers 24 cubic feet of space and when its 60/40-split rear seats are folded the space expands more to accommodate larger items.

It usually takes about 8 hours to charge when using a 220-volt line for the base LEAF’s 3.6 kW power system, while the 6.6 kW takes about 5 hours to power up.
