Innovation from conception to construction
Nissan’s roots can be traced back to the opening of the Kwaishinsha Motor Car Works all the way back in 1911, which began its output with the development on the DAT motor vehicle. The company worked to expand its lineup over the coming year, before the company became known as the DAT Motorcar Co. in 1925. In 1931, the now familiar Datsun name was first used for the company’s latest and smallest vehicle, before Nissan Motors was founded in Yokohama in 1934. Following WWII, Nissan began working with Austin Motor Company here in the UK, and in the late fifties began exporting to the US. Popular cars such as the Datsun 2000 Roadster and 510 sedan arrived in the 1960s.
In 1989, Nissan launched its luxury Infiniti line, before joining forces with Renault a decade later. Nowadays, the Nissan Motor Company continues to expand, with the brand becoming synonymous with innovation and cutting-edge design. The company has focussed heavily on powertrain technology, and has started its own division of hybrid and electric vehicles. Nissan is now the sixth largest carmaker in the world.
The current collection of vehicles produced by Nissan includes everything from nippy city cars to crossovers, performance cars, and pick-ups that serve drivers right across the motoring spectrum. Nissan’s innovative range also includes electric cars, hybrids, and intelligent vehicles that park themselves, watch out for obstacles, and automatically step in to keep you out of trouble. Nissan hasn’t stopped there, either; today, the company continues to work hard on the cars of tomorrow, with its Intelligent Mobility project imagining a near future where cars communicate, learn, and charge as they drive.
Enjoy the perks of driving without the hassles of ownership
Once you’ve decided it’s time to move on to a new car, you will most likely find yourself considering buying a new car outright. Whilst buying come with its benefits, it also comes with a raft of disadvantages that can make the thought of car ownership much less attractive. Buying a car means making a significant financial commitment - not only at the point of purchase, but right throughout the time that you own the car. Not far down the line, the initial outlay required to purchase the car gives way to a vast and rapid decrease in value. An owner who eventually decides to sell their car will find that it is worth far less than they initially paid for it, and the hassles of selling on second-hand can lead to them making a less-than-perfect deal.
When you choose to lease a Nissan through Vantage Leasing, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that the major pitfalls of car ownership will thankfully never apply to you. What’s more, there will be a series of plus-points to benefit from. First of all, a leasing deal won’t require you to make a major upfront payment so your savings are left safely alone. You’ll make a small upfront payment and, after that, your contract will continue for the agreed period at a consistent and affordable rate that’s right for you. Our personal leasing contracts not only offer financial benefits now and in the future, but also expose you to a new world of motoring possibilities. The often unaffordable costs of buying a new car can leave you with a limited range of vehicles to choose from, but leasing brings more desirable cars within easy reach. You’ll be able to pick from amongst the best cars on the market today, all whilst paying a monthly rate that suits your budget.
Lastly, leasing is also a hassle-free alternative, letting you leave behind the headaches of depreciation and second-hand selling. At the end of your lease period, you will be able to just hand the car back to us and move on to the next car.

The Nissan 370Z is the latest incarnation in a model history that has panned out over four decades. Tracing its heritage back to the 240Z, which wowed the motoring world with its good looks and fantastic performance, the latest car in the line-up continues to define itself in just the same way. Boasting a 3.7L V6 engine and reams of technical advances, the engine also benefits from Variable Vable Event and Lift (VVEL) technology, cleverly creating quicker responses and a broader torque curve with valve opening and timing adjustments. Aside from the 370Z’s engine, hidden tech includes lightweight suspension made from aluminium components, reducing the car’s weight and improving handling. Offering further advantages, lease the Nissan 370Z Nismo and you’ll drive with 370Nm of torque for a track-ready performance. Also added to the standard package is a set of Rays alloy wheels with tyres to match the car’s performance. The alloy wheels are 19” super-lightweight forged aluminium, paired with Bridgestone Potenza S001 tyres providing an extra inch of width at the rear. The Nismo also comes with race-style Recaro sports seats with g-force-handling side bolsters clad in rich leather with red Alcantara inserts.

The Nissan ENV200 Combi is a fully electric van, with no internal combustion engine or traditional transmission and with far fewer moving parts than the average van.

What’s more, you’ll also enjoy a peaceful ride, surprising performance, and cash freed up for investment back into your busy lifestyle. Useful features built into the ENV200 include single shift transmission and Hill Start Assist, making driving easier and safer. The van’s near-silent driving experience also creates a more relaxed and less stressful environment, helping to reduce fatigue and improve productivity. Lease the Nissan ENV200 Combi and you’ll not only benefit from the fantastic interior proportions, but also a cargo floor height just 52cm from the ground, and an option of either five or seven seats. The van’s modular seating arrangement means there’s plenty of room for adjustment, as well as for passengers and luggage at once. In-van tech includes the Carwings on-board connection with NissanConnect EV app allowing you to track and log driver reports, receive information on the vehicle’s charge, start charging and set climate control from a tablet, and update the charging map. The NV200 also comes with an excellent 5-year/60,000-mile warranty and 12 year anti-corrosion warranty.
The all-new Nissan GT-R delivers track level performance for the everyday driver. Having broken rules and records for decades, the new GT-R does the same all over again. The GT-R’s performance stats include 570 horsepower and 637 Nm torque, aided by the new titanium exhaust with open valve system and improved aerodynamics with increased downforce. The car’s body rigidity is improved for extra stability and handling, and the vehicle rides on four 20” 15-spoke forged lightweight alloy wheels. The in-car tech is another key reason to seriously consider leasing a Nissan GT-R, with a brand new 8” touch screen, latest generation NissanConnect sat-nav and entertainment setup, and Active Sound Enhancement all included as standard. There’s also a rotary control on the centre console, operating the in-car system without reaching for the touchscreen, and a DAB digital radio with integrated smartphone app. Comfort is integral to the GT-R’s appeal, with a redesigned interior featuring hand-crafted materials from the prestige leather seats to trims including Black, Tan, Ivory, and Red.

The Juke also features intelligent torque vectoring. Whilst traditional 4x4 vehicles distribute a car’s power between the front and rear wheels, the Juke’s All Mode 4x4-i system also shifts power from side to side at the rear.
