As Nissan continues to unveil its 2023 lineup, the new Altima arrives with a refreshed exterior design and more technology. The 2023 Nissan Altima will be available in four grades: S AWD, SR AWD, SR Premium, and Platinum.

On the outside, the Altima receives a new Ethos Gray premium colour, which joins the six previously available options. But what’s most noticeable on the 2023 Altima is the new front fascia that showcases the updated Nissan V-Motion grille with a black chrome finish.

Next to that new grille are new standard LED headlights that have integrated turn signals within the daytime running lights. As you move to the back, you’ll find an available single panel moonroof and the expressive rear taillight design.

Technology has been updated for the new Nissan Altima as well. Available features include a large 12.3-inch HD colour display with multi-touch control, wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, the Nissan Door-to-Door Navigation system, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a wireless charging pad. All of those amenities are standard on SR Premium and Platinum grades.

The 2023 Nissan Altima is expected to be available soon here at Avenue Nissan in Toronto, Ontario. Contact our team or visit us to learn more about reserving your model!

Nissan Debuts Updated 2023 LEAF

Nissan Debuts Updated 2023 LEAF | Toronto, ON

The all-electric Nissan LEAF has been a solid choice for eco-conscious drivers for more than 10 years. This iconic vehicle is getting some upgrades for the 2023 model year, with significant changes to its exterior as well as updates to its interior and safety systems.


The new Nissan LEAF arrives with a refreshed grille as well as bumper molding and headlights that have black inner accents. The Nissan badge in the centre of the grille also lights up to further enhance the car’s appeal. Another aesthetic upgrade comes in the form of bold 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels that are standard. Outside of looks, the LEAF’s rear spoiler, rear under diffuser, and tire deflectors have all been modified for improved aerodynamics.


Inside, the steering wheel features the latest Nissan logo. The vehicle start-up video on the instrument panel screen has also been updated on the 2023 LEAF. Black cloth and gloss black accents are standard on the SV and SV PLUS trims. But on the LEAF SL PLUS model, you’ll find standard leather seats.


Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist is standard on the LEAF for 2023. This driver-assist system combines Intelligent Cruise Control with steering assist technologies to add extra peace of mind behind the wheel.

New Nissan EV Platform Boosts Performance, Comfort

All-New Nissan ARIYA EV | Toronto, ON

As Nissan looks to the future, the brand is always finding ways to make driving more enjoyable. This encompasses both comfort and driving dynamics. The new Nissan CMF-EV platform, which debuted on the all-new ARIYA EV, is an example of this.

Commonly referred to as a “magic flying carpet” by Nissan engineers, this platform allows the cabin of a vehicle to transform into a lounge-like area. This is instantly noticeable in the new ARIYA, which features a wide and open design with Zero Gravity front seats.

It’s not just about opening up the cabin with the CMF-EV platform, though. This system is adaptable to various powertrains, including the state-of-the-art e-4ORCE drivetrain technology. That all-wheel control technology provides an ideal balance of power and balance for a smooth yet exhilarating drive.

To put it to the test, Nissan released a video where a motorized server tray with e-4ORCE technology swiftly delivered bowls of ramen with no spills. Thanks to its braking performance and power output management, the server tray reduced sloshing when arriving in front of customers.

While you probably won’t be driving around with hot soup in your new Nissan, that test was a unique way of showcasing the brand’s innovation. Our team at Avenue Nissan in Toronto, Ontario, is excited to see more smart developments from the Nissan brand in the coming years!

Nissan Plans to Introduce New Electrified Vehicles by 2030 | Toronto, ON

Nissan recently announced Ambition 2030 — its vision of becoming a more sustainable company that provides stylish, efficient vehicles across the globe. As a result, and due to customer demand, Nissan plans to introduce 15 new EVs by 2030.

“We are proud of our long track record of innovation, and of our role in delivering the EV revolution. With our new ambition, we continue to take the lead in accelerating the natural shift to EVs by creating customer pull through an attractive proposition by driving excitement, enabling adoption and creating a cleaner world,” said Nissan COO Ashwani Gupta.

Along with creating new vehicles, Nissan plans on reducing costs for battery production. By introducing cobalt-free technology to its lithium-ion batteries, the brand is estimated to bring the cost down 65% by fiscal year 2028. In addition to that, Nissan will increase mobility options by offering its advanced driver-assistance technologies to more consumers. The goal is to expand ProPILOT™ technology to more than 2.5 million vehicles by fiscal year 2026.

Nissan has always been a leader when it comes to innovative technology in its vehicles. The Nissan LEAF® was first introduced in 2010, before many automakers were even considering alternative-fuel models. The LEAF® is still available today and the all-new 2023 ARIYA marks the next generation of Nissan EVs.

The Rogue has been a solid part of the Nissan lineup for 15 years. Nissan recently unveiled the third generation of the popular SUV in 2020, featuring a bold new design and exciting features. For 2022, the Nissan Rogue receives even more updates.

“As the Nissan NEXT transformation continues, the 2022 Nissan Rogue’s all-new powertrain is a proof point of the company’s commitment to investing in its lineup and improving the company’s product, brand and sales power in North America,” said Steve Milette, President of Nissan Canada Inc.

Thanks to Nissan’s new 1.5-litre VC-Turbo engine, the 2022 Rogue is more powerful than ever. This new engine builds on the initial 2.0-litre version of the VC-Turbo that Nissan pioneered in 2019 and improved on its acceleration, fuel economy, and emissions.

Also helping the new Rogue become more fuel efficient is the new generation Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission with Manual Mode. With a new control valve system and twin oil pump system, the upgraded CVT offers a smoother drive and enhanced fuel economy — as low as 6.7 L/100 km on the highway on certain models.[1]

Thrilling New Nissan GT-R Special Editions Coming Soon

Thrilling New Nissan GT-R Special Editions Coming Soon | Toronto, ON

The Nissan GT-R made its Canadian debut in 2008 and has undergone quite a few changes over the years. One thing that hasn’t changed is how thrilling it is to get behind the wheel of this high-performance vehicle. Nissan has recently announced the arrival of two GT-R special editions: T-spec and NISMO.

GT-R T-spec Edition

The new Nissan GT-R T-spec is available in two luxurious colours, Midnight Purple and the new-for-Canada Millennium Jade. Inside, the cabin is filled with Mori Green semi-aniline leather-appointed seating with pearl suede accents, T-spec badging, and a quilted Alcantara® headliner. In terms of performance, the GT-R T-spec is equipped with a twin-turbo 3.8-litre V6 engine that’s capable of 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. An advanced paddle-shifted sequential six-speed DCT is paired to the engine. The T-spec sports the independent rear transaxle all-wheel drive system that can be found on the standard GT-R.


The previously announced GT-R NISMO is even more powerful than the T-spec. Under the hood is a similar twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8. But because this model utilizes a variety of components to dial into maximum turbo power, the engine is rated at 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. The NISMO also shows off an exclusive Stealth Gray colour, new 20-inch RAYS® forged aluminum-alloy wheels with red accents, and a clear-coated carbon fibre hood.

As special-edition models, a limited number of these exhilarating vehicles will be available throughout Canada. To learn more, contact our team at Avenue Nissan in Toronto, Ontario.

Nissan Joins “Race to Zero” Carbon Neutrality Campaign

Nissan Joins “Race to Zero” Carbon Neutrality Campaign | Toronto, ON

To help combat the effects of climate change, the “Race to Zero” global campaign was created to get leadership and support from businesses, cities, and investors around the world. Nissan recently announced that it would be joining the campaign — making it the first Japanese automaker to do so.

As a requirement for the campaign, a business must also join the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to ensure that its carbon reduction targets have been validated and align with the latest climate science. Nissan also signed the Business Ambition for 1.5°C commitment, which aims to keep global temperature rise to 1.5° C above pre-industrial levels.

“To accelerate global efforts to achieve carbon neutrality, Nissan will continue to address various issues in a responsible manner, including further promotion of electrification. Also at Nissan we are determined to fulfil our role as a company that will continue to be needed by our stakeholders in the future,” said Nissan President and CEO Makoto Uchida.

That commitment to electrification can be found in the all-new Ariya EV. This stunning electric crossover perfectly represents Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ thanks to the many advanced features and abilities found throughout the vehicle. This includes an expected range of 482 km, ProPILOT Assist 2.0, ProPILOT Park, and an available Heads-Up Display, among many other high-end features.[1]

The all-new Nissan Ariya is expected to arrive soon. In the meantime, contact our team at Avenue Nissan in Toronto, Ontario, for more details.

2021 Nissan Rogue Named a Most Improved Car by U.S. News | Toronto, ON

Since its debut in 2007, the Nissan Rogue has undergone many changes. Now in its third generation, it seems that all of those updates have paid off. Fittingly, the 2021 Nissan Rogue was recently named one of the six most improved cars by U.S. News & World Report.

With the compact SUV segment being highly competitive, it can be hard for a model to stand out. But Nissan made sure to fill the Rogue’s cabin with premium materials and ensure that drivers could feel confident behind the wheel with a bevy of driver-assist technologies. In fact, standard automatic high beam headlights and Intelligent Driver Alertness were two of the features that stood out to U.S. News and helped the Rogue improve its overall ratings.

Additional highlights that helped the 2021 Rogue land on the list included its comfortable, quiet cabin; increased rear headroom and legroom; and a new driving platform with an updated suspension and steering design. U.S. News editor Kevin Linder noted, “Overall, the ground-up redesign of the Nissan Rogue for 2021 produced a competent and well-equipped crossover SUV. It’s a comfortable SUV that can tackle just about any duty required as a daily driver.”

You can find the new 2021 Nissan Rogue at Avenue Nissan, where we have a wide variety of models to choose from. Visit us today to take this SUV for a test drive.
