The GT-R is offered in 2+2 coupe variants except for the Track Edition which comes in a two-seater configuration only. The features are well distributed across the trims and the base Premium trim starts at an MSRP of $99,590 while it goes to $115,710 for top-of-the-line Track Edition.

We Recommend

We recommend going for the Premium trim as all the trim gets the same powertrain options and the driving dynamics also remain the same across all the trims. The Premium gets all the features that you will need for your daily drives. It comes out as the best value for money. If you want a two-seater variant then only it makes sense to go for the Track Edition. The reduced weight and sportier suspension will make the driving experience better for sure.

2014 Nissan GT-R Engine and Performance

7.0/10

The Nissan GT-R has always been a beast when it comes to performance and the 2014 model year is no different. The GT-R is powered by a mighty 3.8L Turbo V6 engine that churns out 545 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and the power is sent to all four wheels. The 2014 GT-R gets a new fuel injector to improve the throttle response in the mid-range and top-end of the rave range. 

The GT-R has always been a beast in terms of acceleration and the added performance in the top-end means it can pull even better across the rave range. It takes an impressive 3.2 seconds to reach from 0 to 60 mph and the quarter-mile run takes just 11.6 seconds. You always have enough power on reserve whenever you push your foot on the gas paddle and it launches like a bullet off the line.

The 2014 Nissan GT-R remains unbeatable in terms of outright acceleration sharing the spot with Porsche 911 Turbo. The Porsche however, gets a slight advantage in the quarter-mile run with a difference of 0.3 seconds. The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 takes 4.1 seconds to reach 0 to 60 mph while the Jaguar XKR takes one complete second more than the GT-R to reach 0 to 60 mph. The Nissan GT-R and Porsche 911 Turbo also has a similar top speed at 197 miles per hour.

2014 Nissan GT-R Fuel Economy

6.0/10

The 2014 Nissan GT-R is not the best choice if you want impressive fuel economy figures. The performance that Godzilla offers is going to hit the economy for sure. It manages to deliver 16 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg of combined fuel economy. The fuel tank however is of a decent size at 19.5-gallon and manages to deliver a good range for long highway drives. The 2014 GT-R offers a range of 312/448.5/370.5 in city/highway/combined driving conditions, respectively.

The Porsche 911 Turbo is the most fuel-efficient car in the competition here, which also doesn’t offer very economical fuel efficiency figures. The Porsche returns 17 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway, and 20 mpg of combined fuel economy which is 1 mpg more than the GT-R in every aspect. The Jaguar repeats the same story by returning 1 mpg less than the GT-R in all driving conditions. The Chevy Camaro delivers the least fuel efficiency in the competition.

2014 Nissan GT-R Interior

9.0/10

The first row of the 2014 Nissan GT-R offers a very spacious cabin for the driver and the co-driver. The front row feels ambient and the headroom, shoulder room, and legroom are very generous for the segment. The controls for the drivers are also very easy to use and the driver can reach all the controls easily from the seat. The features like Heated front seats, tilt and telescopic adjustable steering wheel, carbon and leather trims on the dashboard makes the cabin a nice place to be in. It also gets dual-zone automatic climate control for the driver and front passenger. 

The rear seat feels cramped and is not spacious enough to fit adults in there. The rear seats remain the best option only for young kids or you can use it to keep your small luggage as the cargo area is also very limited at just 8.8 cubic feet only. The materials used inside the cabin are livable and do not feel cheap at all.

2014 Nissan GT-R Exterior

6.0/10

The 2014 Nissan GT-R is not a conventional-looking coupe like the competition. It is more muscular in its overall styling and has a solid road presence. The design is very subjective and completely depends on your choice, but people are going to turn their heads to have a glance out on the road for sure. The bigger 20-inch wheels match the muscular look of the car very well. The front bonnet looks very athletic with sharp lines on it. 

On both sides of the front bonnet, it houses very sleek-looking headlights. Below that you can find the LED DRLs that complement the overall front stance. The story remains pretty much the same on the sides also. The 20-inch alloy wheels and the sloping roofline with some sharp creases around the doors make it look like a muscular coupe. The rear gets twin exhausts on both sides and classic round taillights with the rear wings give it a very classic and sporty look.

The Chevrolet Camaro is the longest car in the competition and also has the longest wheelbase in the competition. The Jaguar XKR is the second-longest but the GT-R has a longer wheelbase on offer which translates into more interior space. The Porsche 911 Turbo remains the shortest car in every dimension and also has the shortest wheelbase on offer. Standout exterior features:

  • 20” alloy wheels
  • LED DRLs
  • LED Taillights
  • Quad exhaust pipes
  • Brembo premium brakes
  • Carbon-fiber rear wing
