2016 Nissan GT-R Review
Nissan is known for providing sport coupes that are not only reliable and high-performing but stylish as well, and the GT-R is no exception. With a few new tweaks to a time-tested design, the 2016 model of this vehicle is sure to impress connoisseurs of vehicles in this sector.
Montgomeryville Nissan is proud to present this review of the 2016 Nissan GT-R for our Doylestown, Lansdale, and Philadelphia drivers.
2016 Nissan GT-R
The GT-R first came on the scene in 2009 as a top-of-the-line sport coupe that delivered maximum bang for the buck in the sector, easily able to compete with higher end models. Rather than a complete redesign every couple years, Nissan has taken the tactic of continual upgrades with each passing year. The 2016 Nissan GT-R is still an impressive competitor as the company’s top-of-the-line sports coupe.
Trim Levels and Tech
There are three trim levels for the 2016 GT-R: Premium, Black Edition and NISMO. The Premium is the entry level, but it still delivers high-end features like alloy wheels, LED adaptive headlights and running lights, a rearview camera, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone climate control, eight-way power driver seat and four-way passenger, heated front seats, and active noise cancellation.
A 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system tops off the features, delivering Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, and an 11-speaker Bose sound system with CD, USB, and satellite radio tuner.
The Black Edition and NISMO offer mostly trim enhancements such as carbon-fiber spoilers and upgraded upholstery. The upshot of this is that all of your technology options are available right at the entry level.
GT-R Performance and Safety
The GT-R is powered by a turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 that delivers 550 horsepower and 463 lb-ft of torque via a six-speed manual transmission. It goes from 0 to 60 in barely over three seconds and gets an EPA-estimated 19 mpg.
Safety features are standard and include anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, and airbags on the front seat, sides, and side curtain regions. It comes to a stop from 60 mph in 99 feet—an exceptional result.
Comfort and Ride
The superb design of the 2016 GT-R doesn’t stop with performance or technology. The cabin is plush with leather and simulated-suede upholstery, large and user-friendly controls and gauges within easy reach, and column-mounted shift paddles, while plenty of interior room make this an exceptionally comfortable vehicle.
Those who focus on performance won’t be disappointed. The driving experience of this vehicle is just as outstanding as its comfort, safety, and technology features. Acceleration is near-instant but not remotely jarring, and shifting is smooth as silk. The steering and handling are not just comfortable; they’re downright athletic, and you’re not likely to feel out of control even when taking tight corners at high speeds.
Recent suspension upgrades mean this car rides smooth and easy even on bumpy roads. Whether you’re jaunting around the neighborhood or hitting the open highway, this car will be a joy to drive.
