2015 Nissan Armada

2015 Nissan Armada

Pros: Competitive pricing; front-seat room and comfort; fine visibility thanks to tall driving position and jumbo door mirrors

Cons: Fuel economy; aging design dates back to 2004; high step-in height makes entry and exit challenging for some occupants

CG Says: Nissan’s long-running large SUV sees only minor trim changes for 2015, such as revised interior door trim styling and revised 20-inch wheels for some trim levels. Armada feels rather antiquated compared to most of its class competitors, which aren’t particularly cutting-edge vehicles to start with. Armada trails key rivals in 3rd-row comfort and ease of entry and exit. Still, engine performance is laudable, and prices generally undercut those of similarly equipped competitors. Before test driving the 2015 Nissan Armada, be sure to evaluate the competition.
