Across the globe, work is underway to leverage the power of Nissan Intelligent Mobility by providing a sustainable energy system to a boarding school in Pretoria, South Africa. Nissan has partnered with Filadelfia School to improve its access to reliable electricity and increase the use of renewable energy. This initiative is part of the automaker’s commitment to advancing the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
According to Nissan, the national grid provides energy access to 85 percent of the population; however, capacity and connection constraints often mean that the school experiences several outages a month that can last from a few hours to a full day. With a student body of 400 disabled youths ranging from 14- to 21-years old, these unscheduled energy blackouts cause a significant amount of disruption to Filadelfia School.
To help combat the issue, Nissan is using a combination of second-life batteries from Leaf all-electric vehicles and solar panels to provide the school with a sustainable energy system that helps mitigate the impact of electricity shortages in the community. Now when faced with a blackout, the students can continue on with their scheduled activities in a safe manner by tapping into the power provided by the renewal energy source.

When choosing a family vehicle, options seem endless with each brand offering an assortment of sedans, crossovers, SUVs and minivans. But, when you hone-in on safety, certain makes and models fall to the wayside simply because they lack the protective features that matter to moms and dads most.
One mainstay is the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder. Not only is this platform spacious and capable for larger families, but it was also just recognized as a 10 Best Family Car of 2019 by Parents magazine.
Earning a top spot in the Best Three-Row SUVs category, the reviewers at the publication hailed the Pathfinder for its patented rear-door alert system, which was designed by two Nissan moms and engineers. This system uses a series of honks to remind drivers to check the back seat for children or pets before walking away from the vehicle. Parents magazine also highly-regarded the SUV’s Intelligent Around View Monitor (I-AVM), which provides a 360-degree view to uncover objects that would otherwise be hidden in a blind spot. With protective features like these, it’s no wonder why this platform is a top choice with Seattle families.
To learn more about the 2019 Pathfinder and its protective equipment, contact Kirkland Nissan near Redmond, Washington, to go for a test drive.

It has been an exciting week for Nissan Versa fans. First, spy images of the 2020 model were spotted in full camo and now the automaker has confirmed the next generation’s debut. According to a press release, the new compact sedan will be unveiled at the "Rock the Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival" in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
One might wonder why Nissan would select a country music festival to debut the Versa – it seems like an unlikely match. However, some industry insiders purport that the automaker is paying homage to its Nashville, Tennessee, roots, which is very possible.
Little is known about the forthcoming Versa, but if we examine the spy images, the next-gen sedan will take its design cues from its bigger siblings, the Maxima and Altima. The exterior looks to be re-shaped with thinner and more angular headlights and taillights, while the sideview mirrors have been relocated from the A-pillar to the doors. Details haven’t been shared about the platform’s engine specs, but the current model runs on a 109-hp naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine with a continuously variable transmission, which could remain.
To learn more about the Versa, be sure to check back to our blog once details are released on April 12, 2019, at the music festival.

At the beginning of March, Nissan rolled out its IMQ SUV concept at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show.
Multiple electric motors will be used to create all-wheel drive, and the battery pack is designed to provide 335 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Whether this marks Nissan’s entry into the fully electric SUV market or will be another hybrid wasn’t clear.
Motor Authority’s Sean Szymkowski said the IMQ has “a more fluid look than, say, the IMx concept from 2017.” In keeping with “the futuristic theme, the IMQ boasts Nissan's Invisible-to-Visible technology, which incorporates augmented reality, along with a virtual personal assistant and a prototype version of the ProPilot Assist system.”

Before designing the ultimate work truck, Nissan polled thousands of Habitat for Humanity volunteers nationwide to find out what they really wanted in a work truck to help in their mission of creating affordable housing.
The three top “wants” were: off-road capability; lockable storage bins and easily accessed tools for the truck bed; and an interior that can function like the mobile office it needs to be.
Nissan got to work customizing one of its Nissan Titan XDs (Cummins V8 diesel version). With the addition of tons of lockable tool boxes, Bedslide rails, a 3-inch lift kit, a winch, and LED work lights, the truck bed was done. The tool boxes were equipped with a chop saw, an air compressor, and a drill kit. With Icon wheels and bigger Nitto tires, Habitat’s Titan can go pretty much anywhere. And with the inclusion of a laptop and printer plus reconfiguring the back seat as a mobile office with not just a desk but filing cabinets, the volunteers’ wish list was complete.
After a brief appearance at the Indianapolis Work Truck Show, the customized Titan was donated to Habitat for Humanity. Nissan’s donated more than 150 trucks and $16.9 million to the housing charity since 2005.

Earlier this year (March 7-10, 2019) car enthusiasts gathered at the 24th annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in Florida for a weekend of all things automotive, including a chance to ogle vintage classics like the 1957 Ferrari 355 S and the 1938 Mercedes-Benz 540K Autobahn-Kurier.
For those who want to actually own a car though, the big news from the show was that Automobile Magazine chose the newly redesigned 2019 Nissan Altima SR 2.0 as one of its All-Stars.
"The Nissan Altima has undergone a transformation that elevated it to All-Star status," said Automobile editor-in-chief Mike Floyd. "It drives worlds better than before, is available with an innovative engine and a top-flight suite of safety features, and its clean interior layout pairs with a great-looking new exterior."
The editors were impressed with the 2019 Altima’s 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine, its fuel economy, and its suspension. As online editor Ed Tahaney said, “I was amazed and impressed. That VC-Turbo engine, used to less good effect in the Infiniti QX50 crossover, really is good for something, and this is it. Well played, Nissan.”
With a suspension that “punches well above its weight” and torque usually found only in much larger engines, the new Nissan Altima was the show’s sleeper.

This week, we shared spy images of the Nissan Versa, but that’s not the only vehicle to be out and about in full camo. A 2021 Sentra was also spotted, signalling the availability of a redesigned version of Nissan’s compact sedan.
Similar to the Versa, the Sentra appears to have adopted certain Altima design cues for a more handsome appearance. Anchoring the front-end is a V-motion grille with thinner headlights that stretch further back into the fenders for a sleeker, more aggressive look. The front bumper also appears to have been re-sculpted with sharper angles to add more pizazz to the sedan’s silhouette, while speculators have commented that the Altima’s floating roof design is a possible addition to the Sentra. Under the hood, the powerplant will likely continue on with a small naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine with an additional powerplant option, should the automaker add SR Turbo and Nismo versions to the line-up.
Whatever Nissan decides, the 2021 Sentra promises to wow consumers with its refreshed appearance and newly chiselled looks. As more details are released about this next generation, we’ll be sure to share them here on our blog.

Seattle tuners – start your engines! Nissan just announced that they will celebrate 50 years of performance at the New York International Auto Show in April. While their teaser doesn’t explain much as of now, fans can get a sneak preview of the Nissan Dream Garage, which will be on display at the show.
The automaker shared an image of their Dream Garage, which includes well-lit models of a 240Z, an R32-generation GT-R race car, a C110-generation GT-R, and an R34-generation GT-R. Lurking below in the shadows, it’s hard to decipher the other types of vehicles, but speculators say that a 50th-anniversary edition 370Z is a possibility, along with a modern GT-R, GT-R50, and GT-R Nismo.
Industry insiders have been waiting with bated breath for the official word from Nissan regarding new generations of the 370Z and GT-R. Any Google search brings up pages of content hypothesizing about the forthcoming models’ performance specs and design features. Last we heard, the next Z might premiere with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with hybrid assistance, while the GT-R will utilize electrification. While we wait for official confirmation, the Nissan Dream Garage is a nice distraction.
The NYIAS kicks off on Friday, April 19, 2019. Be sure to check back to our blog for show news and highlights as they unfold.

Have you been thinking of making the switch to a Nissan Versa – our brand’s leading subcompact economy-focused sedan? Spy images of the forthcoming 2020 model have just been released and provide a quick glance into the platform’s enhancements, which hasn’t seen a redesign since 2012.
Most notable are the Versa’s styling cues, which appear to mimic those of its bigger sedan siblings, the Altima and Maxima. The front-end looks to be accented by Nissan’s V-motion grille, while around back the taillights are similarly shaped to those found on the Altima. A more tapered roofline and higher decklid provides a refreshed silhouette to the Versa as well. By all accounts, it looks like the class-leading rear seat space will remain – the 2019 model currently boasts 37 inches of rear seat legroom, which few rivals can surpass, let alone match. You can view the spy images on the Car and Driver website.
To learn more about the Versa, including features and specs, contact Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, to speak with a sales advisor. Our inventory is stocked with new and used models, providing the best selection and pricing in one lot. Stop in and see us today!

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has released the findings from their latest passenger-side small overlap front tests for trucks. In their report, the organization claims that most pickups struggled to maintain their structures during the evaluation. However, there was one shining star – the 2019 Nissan Titan.
Out of the 11 trucks evaluated, the Titan managed to receive a Good rating for both the passenger- and driver-side overall tests, which is the highest grade possible. The pickup specifically scored well in the areas of restraint and kinematics, head and neck, chest, hip and thigh, lower leg and foot. The truck also earned an Acceptable rating for structure.
When you choose the Nissan Titan, you can drive with peace of mind knowing that the truck is well-equipped with standard safety equipment right at the base level. All models boast six airbags, anti-lock disc brakes, brake assist, as well a tire pressure monitoring and electronic stability control. As you climb the trim levels, you’ll benefit from driver assist features, such as blind spot warning and trailer sway control, plus high-tech inclusions, like front and rear sonar parking sensors with surround view.
Safety is a cornerstone of the Titan! To learn more about this platform’s protective features and solid crash scores, contact Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, to discuss.
