2014 Nissan GT-R Review, Feature and Images – The Nissan GT-R is a supercar with a dedicated following, and no other car on the market can provide such a vast performance envelope for the price. Reviewers reported that the 2014 Nissan GT-R has incredible acceleration and extremely nimble handling, but its interior isn’t up to rival sports car standards.
The 2014 Nissan GT-R has blistering acceleration, test drivers said, thanks to the twin-turbocharged V6 engine beneath the hood. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that shifts well at higher speeds, reviewers said, but some found it less-than-smooth at low speeds. According to the EPA, the 2014 GT-R gets 16/23 mpg city/highway, which is a bit low for the class. The Nissan GT-R has nimble handling in tight curves, well-weighted steering and strong brakes, according to auto journalists. They added that the Nissan GT-R’s standard all-wheel drive makes it easy to drive quickly, thanks to its strong grip. However, a few critics said the 2014 GT-R’s electronic performance driving aids make it less engaging to drive than competitors. Critics agreed that the Nissan GT-R offers a comfortable ride at any speed.
Auto journalists said the 2014 Nissan GT-R is made with cheap, hard plastics and lacks the lush treatments seen in rival sports cars. They added that the cabin is roomy, with comfortable front seats, but that the rear seats are better suited to children. Cargo space is typical for the class. Reviewers said the central display system is clear and has crisp graphics. Standard features include an 11-speaker Bose stereo system, navigation with a 7-inch touch screen, a USB port, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth and a rearview camera.
Safety features include dual-stage frontal air bags with seat belt and occupant classification sensors, driver and front-passenger seat mounted side impact air bags and roof-mounted curtain side-impact air bags. It has a LATCH system with lower anchors and tethers for child seats, zone body construction with front and rear crumple zones and hood buckling creases to absorb impact. The car comes with a 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD), which optimizes front/rear brake balance to ensure the most efficient stopping ability in all conditions, and the mandated Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
Standard features in the 2014 GT-R include an 11-speaker Bose stereo system, navigation with a 7-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, a USB iPod input, a rearview camera and dual-zone automatic climate control.
Test drivers focus most of their attention on the GT-R’s digital display screen on the center stack, and write that it has a sharp, impressive-looking display that gives lots of performance-related information.
