2015 Nissan GT-R Review

The 2015 Nissan GT-R provides a thrill ride unrivaled by most sports cars, with its break-neck acceleration and acrobatic handling. Still, its second-rate cabin materials position it in the bottom half of the luxury sports car class.      

Pros & Cons

 

  • Astonishing acceleration
  • Superb handling
  • Comfortable ride

 

  • Lackluster interior

2015 Nissan GT-R Overview

Is the 2015 Nissan GT-R a Good Used Car?

The 2015 Nissan GT-R is the ideal supercar for adrenaline junkies. It offers some of the most exhilarating performance on the market, with its burly engines and racecar-like agility. As a perk, its smooth ride makes it practical for daily driving. However, the GT-R’s uninspiring interior may disappoint those who want more luxury from a high-priced performance car.  

Used 2015 Nissan GT-R Performance and Interior

The all-wheel-drive Nissan GT-R delivers blistering acceleration from its 545-horsepower twin-turbocharged V6 base engine. The GT-R NISMO has a potent 600-horsepower modified version of that same V6. The GT-R NISMO has a top speed of 196 mph, and it can climb to 60 mph in only 3 seconds. All models come with a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Its handling is just as impressive, with corner-carving abilities and road grip unmatched by most competitors. The 2015 Nissan GT-R’s ride is also comfortable enough for everyday driving. However, if you want to maximize the car’s athleticism, the GT-R Track Edition and GT-R NISMO come with a stiffer track-tuned suspension. For a car with this much power, fuel economy is expectedly low, with EPA estimates of 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.

The 2015 GT-R seats four. The front seats are supportive and comfortable, and there’s good space for tall adults. However, the back seats are best used for storage, because there’s little head- and legroom in the rear seats. The GT-R’s cabin looks and feels cut-rate for a luxury car, but its stereo pumps out great sound quality and its infotainment system displays handy performance stats.

Standard features include a 7-inch touch screen, navigation, a Bose stereo, dual climate control, and push-button start. The GT-R is also available with a number of performance-enhancing features, including a NISMO-tuned suspension. However, few other technology gadgets are available.

Should I Consider Another Used GT-R?

The Nissan GT-R began production in 2009. The 2015 GT-R is included in the car’s first generation, which continues through the 2017 model year. Although earlier GT-R models may be less expensive, the 2015 model adds features that may make it worth the extra cost, including chassis and style enhancements for better ride and cabin comfort. Additionally, the high-performance GT-R NISMO model was introduced for the 2015 model year.

Which Used Nissan GT-R Is Right for Me?

There are four Nissan GT-R trims available: Premium, Track Edition, Black Edition, and NISMO. The GT-R Premium comes with a twin-turbocharged, 545-horsepower V6 engine. Standard features in the GT-R Premium trim include an adaptive suspension, leather upholstery, sport seats, a 7-inch touch screen, navigation, a rearview camera, a Bose 11-speaker audio system, satellite radio, and a push-button ignition.

The GT-R Track Edition doesn’t add much besides a few interior and exterior styling upgrades, as well as a firmer, track-ready suspension. The GT-R Black Edition adds a carbon fiber rear wing, Recaro leather seats, and a red and black interior colorway.

The GT-R NISMO model was designed for those with serious performance needs. It boasts a 600-horsepower V6 engine, a NISMO-tuned suspension, and a number of sporty design elements.

You might consider a certified pre-owned Nissan. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Nissan extends the original new-car warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. To become certified pre-owned, each vehicle must pass a 167-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Nissan warranty page carefully.
