KBB Expert Ratings Countdown: Nissan

If Chrysler were a Japanese brand, its name would likely be Nissan. Here in the States, the so-called Big 3 have included General Motors and Ford, with Chrysler often bringing up the rear. Nissan has assumed a similar role, playing third fiddle behind powerhouses Honda and Toyota.

In an effort to lure buyers away from automotive fixtures such as the Toyota Camry and Honda Civic, Nissan offers impressive cars like the Nissan Sentra and Nissan Altima. And, just to prove that there's a Nissan for every palate, variations including the Nissan Altima hybrid, Nissan Altima Coupe and Nissan Sentra SE-R are also available. There's even the funky, Scion-inspired Nissan Cube with a bounty of custom options.

But not everyone is looking for cars, as Honda Odyssey, Toyota Tacoma, Ford Edge, Chevrolet Silverado, and Honda CR-V shoppers will tell you. For those folks, Nissan builds the versatile Pathfinder, the rugged Nissan Frontier, the V8-powered Nissan Titan, the efficient Nissan Rogue, the comfortable Nissan Murano, the family-friendly Nissan Quest, and the off-roading Nissan Xterra. Covering the performance angle is the successor to the Nissan 350Z, the Nissan 370Z, the Nissan Maxima sport sedan, and the brand's piece de resistance, the Nissan GT-R.
