If you are in need of a plush hauler, offering plenty of room for passengers and an upscale feel, the 2018 Nissan Armada Platinum is a solid contender. Awarded 8 out of 10 for comfort and quality by The Car Connection, this full-size, three-row SUV is your ticket to serious luxury.
A quick glance at the Armada Platinum and one thing is certain – it shares the same great looks and high-end appeal as its cousin, the Infiniti QX80. From the outside in, this SUV is curvaceous and bold, boasting a luxe interior with overstuffed bucket seats that deliver a throne-like experience from the first two rows. As you slip into the driver’s chair, the leather-wrapped four-spoke steering feels good in your hands, while the soft-touch materials and wood-trim accents are easy on the eyes. The leather upholstery throughout is buttery soft too.
The 2018 Armada boasts high-tech luxury with a standard 8-inch touchscreen with NissanConnect, blind-spot monitors, automatic emergency braking, and active lane control. New for 2018, the Platinum trim also includes a rearview camera that displays a live feed from the back of the vehicle, eliminating any visual obstructions caused by the rearmost roof pillars, head rests, or passengers.
The Armada is made for the most-discerning drivers who have a penchant for life’s finer details. To see if this SUV might be the vehicle for you, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, for a test drive.

With the big debut of the 2019 Altima at the New York Auto Show, all eyes are on Nissan as excitement grows for the automaker’s upcoming vehicle lines – especially their sedans. Industry watchers are a-buzz with chatter about an all-new Sentra making its way to the market next year – and now, it sounds like a strong possibility.
In a recent interview with Roadshow, Michael Bunce, Nissan North America’s VP of Product Planning, confirmed the company is already working on the next-generation sedan. "[The Sentra is] probably the vehicle where we have the most opportunity," he added, saying we'll see the new compact sedan sometime next year. "We have a lot of ground to make up there."
Little details – if any – are available about the anticipated 2019 Nissan Sentra, but with the recent launch of the re-designed Altima, one can hypothesize that it will carry over some of its most popular features, like its all-wheel drivetrain, sharp new look inspired by the Vmotion 2.0 concept, and a re-worked powerplant under the hood. Speculators also expect that the size of the Sentra will decrease, making it even more nimble and fuel-efficient than it already is.
At Kirkland Nissan, we have our ears to the ground in the hopes of hearing additional news about the next-gen Sentra. As we know more, we will share with you here on our blog. In the meantime, our inventory is stocked with 2018 models, which are available for test driving. To take one for a spin, call us today.

If you are like most Seattle dog owners, your pups are your family. They come with you to run errands or go for a cruise around town, or they ride in your cargo area enroute to your favorite leash-free parks or the beach. They deserve the same comfort and convenience as you do – that’s where the Rogue Dogue comes in.
Based on the top-of-the-line Nissan Rogue SL with the Platinum Reserve package, this one-off concept was designed by Dennis McCarthy, the Fast & Furious Car Coordinator, for the New York Auto Show.
Inside, the Dogue offers pooch-approved items, such as a removable dog bed, padded cargo area, and spill-free water and food dispensers to keep fido fueled up on the road. There’s also a first-aid kit and a clip-on safety harness with leash attachment points to keep furry friends secure – and you can’t forget the handy poop bag dispenser too. Best of all, the Dogue is equipped with a ramp that deploys from the rear of the crossover, which is a favorite feature with senior pets, and fur parents love the integrated dog shower and dryer for those messy romps at the park.
The Nissan Rogue Dogue is every canine owners’ dream – too bad this concept car isn’t slated for production anytime soon. However, the 2018 Rogue might just do the trick with its expansive cargo area, which offers 70 cubic feet of space with all seats folded down, as well as its sleek design and powerful four-cylinder performance.
To learn more about the Rogue, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, to go for a test drive.

"The Rocky Mountains feature some of the best off-road terrain America has to offer, and the area is also home to some of the top truck enthusiasts in the country," said Tiago Castro, Director, Light Commercial Vehicles Sales & Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc., in a press release.

With the release of the 2018 LEAF, Nissan delivered more than convenient hatchback styling to Seattle. It also offered class-leading tech - with the entire chassis fused with electric capability and lithium-ion support. Beneath the hood waits a suite advanced autonomous features... and they’ve just received an award.
IEEE Spectrum - a leading online tech magazine - has just named the 2018 LEAF as one of the year’s best cars, carving a place for it within its coveted Top Ten list.
According to IEEE, the new LEAF proves a technological showcase for all-electric performance. It combines a 110-kilowatt motor with a 40-kilowatt battery system - generating a robust 147 HP and 236 lb.-ft of torque. A DC charge port system provides quick responses, with Nissan fusing it with exclusive vehicle-to-grid capabilities (this allows drivers to transfer the platform’s power directly to their homes, reducing consumption levels during peak usage times). Available solar-array panels further impress, delivering sustainable performance regeneration.
What truly distinguishes the 2018 LEAF, however, is its ProPilot system - which yields an intuitive experience on the highway. Lane departure warnings pair radar sensors with automated steerage to ensure optimum vehicle alignments; while forward collision software monitors traffic patterns, identifying sudden obstacles and decelerating to provide drivers ample response times. High-definition cameras further improve safety, tracking the distance of both rear and frontal cars. By gauging those positions, these systems can then create a safe speed setting.
These automated features won the admiration of the IEEE committee - and we know they’ll also prove popular with our customers. Visit our dealership today to learn more about the 2018 LEAF and its many tech options.
Discontent is brewing. In the backseat your children plan a mutiny - finally banning together to complain about a lack of space, joining all of their considerable forces to release one penetrating shriek. You wince behind the wheel, feeling your ear-drum shake. Another blow like that will surely cause it to burst. It’s time to concede defeat… and find a much larger cabin.
According to Car and Driver, the new Murano delivers a spacious cabin - with its 111.2-inch wheelbase promising ample room for every family. Slip inside its five-passenger configuration and discover true comfort:
First Row Dimensions
Head Room: 39.9 inches.
Shoulder Room: 59.5 inches.
Leg Room: 40.5 inches.
Second Row Dimensions
Head Room: 39.8 inches.
Shoulder Room: 58.8 inches.
Leg Room: 38.7 inches.
The SL’s interior boasts 55.7 cu.-ft of passenger volume in the front and 52.4 cu.-ft in the rear, respectively. This ensures that all riders can sprawl through the miles, indulging in the leather-appointed seats and integrated power lumbar support. There will be no more wars for space in Seattle.

A stale sensibility defines the sedan market - with every platform delivering meek handling and mild responses, unable to go beyond the flat suburban pavement. These cars prove dull, and they force Seattle drivers to endure the slowest of commutes.
Nissan believes it’s time for a change - which is why it’s fusing the 2019 Altima with all-wheel performance.
According to the NY Daily News, the 2019 Altima will redefine the mid-size market - bringing optional Intelligent AWD to Seattle. This system will ensure ferocious handling on the highway and the backroads alike. Advanced sensors will anchor the axles, monitoring torque pressure with every rev. When high speeds are detected, these features will automatically transfer power to the rear wheels (creating a 50:50 performance split that will enhance traction and reduce the chance of under-steerage). Monotube shock absorbers will frame the suspension, creating a more flexible ride; while a dual-pinion electric unit will bolster steering. Sport-tuning now runs throughout the chassis and delivers smooth responses.
To further improve the Altima’s capabilities, Nissan is pairing the AWD with an XTronic Continuously Variable Transmission. This monitors RPM levels, adjusting gear ratios to accommodate speed demands. This will allow the platform to deliver 180 HP with ease.
Accept no compromises, Seattle!

With consumer interest for all-electric vehicles growing and with tougher emissions regulations expected to come into play, Nissan has announced that it will be ramping up its EV production over the next few years. Dubbed “M.O.V.E. to 2022”, the automaker plans to launch as many as eight new fully electric cars within the next four years, building on the success of its best-selling Leaf. Nissan also has plans to introduce additional EVs in China by participating in various joint ventures.
According to industry buzz, these vehicles will include a new C-segment EV this year, which will be derived from the Leaf, as well as an affordable new A-segment EV, similar to the Fiat 500. Nissan’s Infiniti brand is also expected to electrify its entire lineup by 2021.
The ultimate goal of Nissan’s “M.O.V.E. to 2022” is to sell one million electrified vehicles annually by 2022. If you do the math, that’s six times more than the number of EVs the automaker sold last year. It's an aspiring objective, but one the company welcomes.
According to Philippe Klein, Nissan’s Chief Planning Officer, “Our product and technology strategy is dedicated to positioning Nissan to lead the automotive, technology and business evolution. Our efforts are focused on delivering Nissan Intelligent Mobility, encompassing the three core elements of electrification, autonomous drive, connectivity and new mobility services.”
Little more is known at this time, but this is a developing story that we are following closely. As more news is released, we’ll be sure to keep our Kirkland Nissan customers updated on our blog. To learn more about our current line-up of all-electric vehicles, including the all-new 2018 Leaf, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington for a test drive.

Are you wanting a vehicle with all-wheel drive, but fear you are relegated to an SUV or truck? Think again. Nissan just unveiled its 2019 Altima at the New York International Auto Show, along with some exciting news. The next generation sedan will feature standard all-wheel drive across its line-up.
This offering comes at a time when the family sedan market is shrinking and the crossover SUV segment continues to grow. But, for drivers who don’t want the fuel economy numbers of a full-sized vehicle or haven’t a need for acres of cargo room, a sedan makes perfect sense. And now, with the 2019 Altima, Seattle area drivers will get the best of all worlds with all-wheel drive matched to the peppy performance of a four-door sedan.
The 2019 Altima will feature Nissan’s Intelligent AWD system, which uses an advanced torque split control strategy that automatically redistributes forces to the wheels based on real time driving conditions and wheel slippage. This AWD system even works in conjunction with the Altima’s brake-based limited-slip differential and Hill Start Assist to manage accelerations on slick and steep inclines. No matter the season or terrain, nothing will slow down this sedan.
The all-new Altima is expected to arrive in North American dealerships this fall. Until then, excitement is certain to grow for this all-wheel warrior. To learn more about the Altima and its specs, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.

Today has been a huge day for the Nissan brand. On the tails of the 2018 Leaf’s World Green Car Award, the automaker also revealed their all-new Altima, which is expected to arrive in North American dealerships this fall, followed by other global markets.
The 2019 Altima is an important vehicle for Nissan since it signifies the resurgence of excitement into the mid-size sedan segment. With the redesigned Altima, consumers will not only receive more expressive styling and an inspiring interior, but the car will be offered with the choice of two new powerplants, Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, and standard ProPILOT Assist on the 2019 Altima SV, SL and Platinum grades.
Replacing the previous-generation Altima's 3.5-liter V6 engine is the industry's first production-ready variable compression turbo inline four-cylinder engine, which is expected to deliver V6-level performance, but with more impressive fuel economy. Standard on all Altima trims will also be a new 2.5-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder direct-injection engine. Specs haven’t been divulged yet, but this powerplant promises increases horsepower and torque, while also ensuring improvements in noise and vibration, along with enhanced efficiency and greener emissions.
Reaction about the 2019 Altima has been extremely positive within automotive circles with many journalists hailing Nissan as a leader for bringing highly automated driving to the mass market. It’ll only be a matter of time until we can get behind the wheel for a spin – we cannot wait!
Until then, you can learn more about the Altima by contacting Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington. We currently have many 2018 models in stock, awaiting your next test drive.
