Compared to the 2017 models, the new lineup also finds the supplement of Apple CarPlay to NissanConnect coupled to Navigation and Professional services; inside is also a new black “Kuro Night” color for the Premium Interior Package.

It’s about $10,000 below the next-level Premium with the principal differences which include a titanium exhaust system, sound cancellation, and sound advancement solutions, and an 11-speaker Bose sound system in the cabin. The limited edition GT-R Track Edition creates on the leading NISMO model and developed to provide a greater level of performance than the Pure and Premium.
