In 1969, the 2.0-litre Skyline saloon was the first Nissan to wear a GT-R badge. The Nissan GT-R has a various history. Although it has always had a large amount of followers, some models to wear the GT-R badge haven’t always reached the expectations of everybody. However, whenever Nissan do it well, they do it very, very well.
As many other Japanese products in many different fields, the GT-R is famously reliable. Moreover, it is also a suspiciously usable car. It has a big boot, four decent seats and feature-packed cabin. You will no longer need a stripped-out racer when the GT-R exists, especially in the latest model year, which get an even better Bose stereo and reversing camera.
Numerous enhancements over the years have made it more refined and faster, with 0-to-60 times dropping below only three seconds. It has got a 545-hp, twin-turbo V-6 and amazingly, all-wheel-drive grip give the GT-R supercar performance. Its six-figure price is still cheap compared with anything else. Besides, its speed can leave so many others behind.
The GT-R features some quality materials throughout its cabin, although class rivals offer more wealthy interiors. The large doors make getting in or out of the car more easily and comfortably, and the front seats offer good support, which helps drivers not so tired after a long journey. The rear seats, however, are a little cramped. The trunk space is adequate, but a high liftover may make it more difficult to load items.
By earning an EPA-estimated 16/22 mpg city/highway, much below the average, Nissan GT-R is not only faster but it also consumes less fuel than the others. The 2016 Nissan GT-R gets outstanding acceleration from both of its turbocharged V6 engines. The six-speed dual-clutch auto transmission has timely shifts, allowing drivers to maximize driving enjoyment.
The quality of the sound in the car is excellent because it is equipped with the Bose audio system and car enthusiasts will control the touch screen. The function of the touch screen is not only to control vehicle functions but also to provide performance data as well. Standard features in the GT-R contain push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, DVD player, a USB port, an 11-speaker Bose audio system, satellite radio, a rearview camera, Bluetooth and an infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, voice recognition and navigation.
The adjustable suspension supplies a smooth ride, and the sturdy Brembo brakes have good stopping power. Standard all-wheel drive provides excellent road grip for the GT-R, allowing drivers to react confidently under any circumstances such as winding roads and sharp corners.
