All Nissan does is win

Nissan has been on quite a roll lately, collecting many awards from the Automotive Experts.

The 2012 Nissan Frontier was named one of the Top Ten Vehicles in Kelly Blue Book’s Best Resale Awards, meaning the Frontier gives customers the best returns on their investments.

It didn’t stop their though, as KBB named the Nissan Maxima “Best Full Size Car” in resale value

The Nissan Leaf placed second in the electric car category.

The Nissan Versa placed third among subcompact car

The Nissan Altima placed third among midsized cars.

The Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards recognize vehicles that best retain their value over the first five years of new-vehicle ownership.

That would be enough of an honor, but Nissan is bringing home all kinds of hardware.

The electric Nissan LEAF is garnering praise across the globe. Recent awards include:

  • 2011 European Car of the Year award
  • Ward’s AutoWorld’s 10 Best Engines
