More about the 2018 Nissan GT-R

Want to drive like a hero, but don't have the skills? Then you need a 2018 Nissan GT-R.

This high-tech sport coupe is overflowing with technology that makes it one of the easiest ultra-high-performance vehicles to drive. Acceleration, braking and handling are simply stunning, though the abundance of applied science in the GT-R can leave the driver feeling a bit redundant.

Nissan introduced the GT-R in 2009, making it one of the oldest cars in this quickly changing segment. But the carmaker has been conscientious about making small updates just about every year. For 2018, the GT-R gets a new trim level called Pure and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.

The GT-R is ridiculously fast. Its twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 develops 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque, with a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic delivering all that power to all four wheels. Edmunds timed the GT-R to 60 mph in a blistering 3.2 seconds, making it one of the fastest cars we've ever track-tested. Braking is equally impressive: 60 to zero in just 102 feet. The EPA estimates the GT-R's fuel economy at 18 mpg combined (16 city/22 highway), an admirable showing for such a powerful car.

Out on the open road, the GT-R is an easy car to drive fast. Between all-wheel drive and clever stability and traction control systems, it develops impressive grip and can dart through the corners with incredible precision at physics-defying speeds. But it's not perfect. The GT-R feels a bit nose-heavier than we'd expect of a car of this caliber. Of greater concern is the lack of a real mechanical or emotional connection, something purists are bound to miss; the abundance of traction-management technology tends to isolate the driver from the road. We're also a bit put off by the stiff ride and the inelegant clunks and low-speed lurches from the transmission. This is supposed to be a precision piece of machinery, and sometimes it feels like anything but.

On the plus side, the GT-R is a lot easier to live with than most high-end sports cars. Getting in and out is easy, just as it is in a passenger car, and requires none of the odd contortions that define many low-slung sportsters. Since the GT-R's debut, Nissan has cleaned up the interior and many switches and buttons have been replaced by a single knob on the center console that controls the infotainment system. We love the data telemetry — there's nothing like knowing the maximum lateral g-force you reached on your way to work — and we appreciate the comfortable front seats, though the back seat and trunk are quite small.

The GT-R comes in four trim levels with a few option packages. How should you equip your car? Let Edmunds help find the perfect 2018 Nissan GT-R for you.
