The Nissan Altima is one of America’s best selling cars, and Nissan has seen enormous success with their Versa small car which adds the all-new Versa Note hatchback to the line-up this year. Nissan has also had success with their Sentra compact, Murano and Rogue crossovers and Frontier pickup. Halo cars like the 370Z and 370Z Roadster, the GTR supercar and Leaf electric car have helped the brand’s image, but other vehicles like the Juke crossover, Quest minivan, Xterra SUV, Cube compact, Maxima full-size sedan, Pathfinder and Armada SUVs and the Titan full-size pickup haven’t achieved much success recently.
