ANALYSIS - Mitsubishi future models under Nissan

7 November 2017

Its owner Nissan Motor says Mitsubishi Motors' vehicles won't be fully integrated into the newly expanded R-N-M Alliance's system of architectures until 2020, possibly later. Conventional SUVs, plug-in hybrids, battery-electric small cars and high performance e-SUVs will step by step become the speciality of MMC.


Interior design and technology – Nissan Juke

25 September 2017

A subcompact crossover SUV, the Nissan Juke entered production in 2010. Since then, more than 500,000 units have been sold worldwide, 130,000 in the UK alone. The name ‘Juke’ means to dance or change direction. It is certainly true that this model was a breath of fresh air on launch, redefining the segment with a distinctive alternative to conventional superminis. Significantly for Nissan, it has attracted a number of buyers who are new to the brand; 82 per cent of sales have been to first-time Nissan owners. Continuing just-auto/QUBE’s review of interior design and technology trends, we take a closer look this popular model.


ANALYSIS - Infiniti Q60 3.0 Sport Tech

3 July 2017

The latest Q60 will never be a big seller for Infiniti and with the contraction of the global market for convertibles, there probably won't be a replacement for the old-shape open car. Even so, this challenger for the BMW 4 Series, Mercedes C-Class and Audi Q5 coupés is both a big step forward over the old-shape car and an underrated alternative to the segment leaders.


Nissan and Mitsubishi synergies begin in SE Asia

8 June 2017

Nissan Motor expects its global alliance with Mitsubishi Motors will yield some early synergies in South-east Asia, a region in which it has struggled to keep pace with Japanese rivals Toyota and Honda.
