Which Nissan Body Style is Right for You?

Last updated 6 years ago

Nissan has been making some of the most innovative vehicles in a variety of styles for generations. With their diverse lineup of 2012 models, there is bound to be a car, truck, or SUV for everyone. The trick to determining which new Nissan is right for you is narrowing down your choices to a body style based on the needs of your driving habits, family life, and hobbies. Here is a basic guide to choosing the right body style for you:


If your occupation or favorite pastimes involve heavy hauling or towing, a Nissan pickup truck would be great for your lifestyle. The agile 2012 Frontier can efficiently tow your ATV or boat trailer with a powerful four-cylinder engine. For bigger jobs, the Titan’s 317-horsepower V8 provides all the power you need.


For professionals with daily commutes and small, busy families, a sedan like the Nissan Altima or Maxima offers efficiency, sophistication, and the exciting drivability that you can only find in a Nissan. More economical options include the sporty Sentra and the high-value, low-cost Versa.


The many sizes and styles of SUVs appeal to drivers from all walks of life. The rugged Xterra is built for adventure, while the Pathfinder and Armada combine off-road abilities with large-family seating. For drivers who like SUV style and plenty of seating room but want a vehicle with city-street driving dynamics, crossovers like the Juke, Rogue, and Murano are the perfect answer.


Hatchback vehicles have become incredibly popular in the last few years, as they offer a fun driving experience, versatile capabilities, and excellent efficiency. For a hatch that will save you money upfront and at the pump, look to the 2012 Versa Hatchback. For extra style and comfort, choose the Nissan Cube. To free yourself from ever-rising gas prices, go for the all-electric LEAF.


The coupe experience is unbeatable for true driving enthusiasts. If you are looking for pure driving thrills, Your Nissan options include the affordable Altima Coupe, the legendary Z Coupe, the fun Z Roadster, and the GT-R supercar.
