Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

"Nissan’s GT-R high-performance coupe for 2017 has earned its place among the great performance cars of our time." Kelley Blue Book

The revised hood, grille, and bumper design of the 2017 Nissan GT-R enhance frontal downforce for better handling. There are some upgrades inside the cabin of the GT-R  with an updated dash that features fewer buttons and a new 8-inch capacitive touch screen. There has also been a slight bump in power with the 3.8L DOHC Twin Turbo V6 producing 565 hp. 

The base trim of the 2017 Nissan GT-R starts at a price of around $109,990. The Track Edition will cost you around $127,990 and the 600 horsepower Nismo trim will cost you around $174,990. It goes up against other performance Coupes like the Acura NSX, the Audi R8, and the Porsche 911 Turbo. 


Features
8.0/10

"the GT-R  is a bonafide supercar that commands a six-figure price tag, making it the most expensive model Nissan offers. " Motor Trend

The 2017 Nissan is offered in three trims, the Premium, which is the base model, the track edition, and the hardcore Nismo. The price starts at around $109,990 for the base model and goes all the way up to $174,990 for the powerful $174,990. The base variant comes with leather upholstery with synthetic-suede inserts, dual-zone automatic climate control, a heated eight-way power driver seat. 

The Nismo model, which has an enhanced version of the Premium and Track Edition engines, has a maximum power output of 600 horsepower. The GT-R, on the other hand, finds a happy medium with its cost in the Track Edition trim, which teases you with what's further up the ladder by employing select goodies from the premium Nismo model.

Trim Premium Track Edition Nismo
MSRP $109,990 $127,990 $174,990
Key Feature Leather upholstery with synthetic-suede inserts Track Edition is a turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 that produces 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque. GT-R Nismo comes with a stiffer body structure,
  Dual-zone automatic climate control    Front fascia with more cooling area and downforce, side skirts and rear wing, ,
  Heated eight-way power driver seat (four-way for the front passenger), a manual tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel,   Recaro seats, lightweight forged alloy wheels, more aggressive suspension calibration, and an uprated version of the V6 engine.

We Recommend

The Track Edition, which starts at $127,990 and is the most affordable of the three options, is by far the best bet and well worth the money. Select features from the top-of-the-line Nismo version are included, giving you the sensation of a genuine ready-to-race machine with the added benefit of everyday conveniences like dual-zone temperature control and a sweet-sounding Bose sound system.

Engine and Performance
9.9/10

"There's no denying the 2017 Nissan GT-R's performance credentials. It's blindingly quick and knifes through corners with impressive precision."  - Edmunds

A turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine with 565 hp and 467 pound-feet of torque powers the 2017 Nissan GT-R Premium and Track Edition trims. The GT-R Nismo's engine has been tuned to produce 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque. The power is managed by a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and an AWD system.

2017 Nissan GT-R engine bay

Other performance upgrades on the Nismo include high-capacity twin turbochargers and extensive usage of carbon fiber to minimize weight. 2017 GT-R also offers a more refined ride and better steering control. The dual-clutch transmission is quick-witted and offers a great response when you put the hammer down.

When compared to the competition, Nissan falls slightly behind the Acura NSX in terms of power but the GT-R is one of the cheapest options in the range with the rest of the competition starting at above $150,000. The Audi R8 and the Porsche 911 Turbo offer similar power output, with the Porsche 911 offering the most amount of torque. 

2017 Nissan GT-R Acceleration

The 2017 GT-R can get from 0-60 mph in just 2.9-seconds thanks to its clever AWD system and dual clutch transmission. The quarter-mile run is completed in 11.2 seconds and the 2017 Nissan GT-R has a top speed of 205 MPH.

When compared to the competition, the Nissan is neck and neck with the Porsche 911 Turbo but falls behind the 2017 Acura NSX. The Audi R8 is the slowest to accelerate in the range with a 0-60 MPH time of 3.2 seconds. 

2017 Nissan GT-R Handling and Steering

The steering wheel and column in the coupe have been redesigned, and the addition of the paddle shifter adds to the car's track-ready feel. Although some experienced drivers may miss the rear wheels kicking out from beneath when you hurl the vehicle into corners at high speeds, the all-wheel-drive capabilities and traction control allow the car to be more grounded while ripping through corners at high speeds.

The ride is balanced with track-ready handling thanks to a strong body structure, unique springs, and custom-developed Bilstein DampTronic dampers. Nissan also offers a variety of drive modes, including an R, or Race, mode that adjusts the driving style to the circumstances.

2017 Nissan GT-R Braking

The Nissan GT-R Coupe has excellent Brembo brakes that help to balance off its whip-like quickness off the line. It comes to a complete stop in only 95 feet owing to its massive 15.4-inch front and 15.0-inch rear brakes.

Model 2017 Nissan GTR 2017 Acura NSX 2017 Audi R8  2017 Porsche 911 Turbo
Brake Front (in.) 15.4 14.5 14.4 in 15.0

Curb Weight (lbs.) 393 3803 3649 3516
60-0 MPH (ft.) 95 103 103 100

The GT-R more than holds its own in the braking aspect, with a hefty curb weight of 3933 lbs, a figure that overshadows its competitors like the Acura NSX and the Audi R8 with a curb weight of 3649 lbs.

Fuel Economy
6.3/10

The Nissan is slightly underwhelming in terms of fuel efficiency, with a mere 16 mpg within the city and an on-par figure of 22 mpg on the highway, and a combined 18 mpg. The 2017 GT-R comes with a large 19.5-gallon fuel tank, which gives it a range of around 470 miles.

The Acura NSX and the Porsche 911 Turbo have the highest fuel economy with a combined 21 mpg. The Porsche offers the most range with its 17.9-gallon fuel tank. The Audi R8 is the least economical in the range with a combined 17 mpg.  

Interior
7.0/10

"Much improved interior materials team with active noise cancellation and a usable rear seat to make the GT-R an almost civil long-distance cruiser." - The Car Connection

2017 Nissan GT-R Seating and Comfort

The 2017 Nissan GT-R sees some minor upgrades to the interior. The dash has been revamped with Nappa leather covering and fewer physical buttons. The cabin feels more lavish and premium than previous trims even though there are only a few changes. The addition of paddle shifters to the back of the steering wheel makes it more in tune with its sports car characteristics. There are also plenty of features that have been added to the roster of the 2017 Nissan GT-R. 

The 2017 Nissan GT-R interior with Nappa Leather

In most sports vehicles, four full-fledged seats are rare, and the GT-R excels in this area. Although the back seats aren't the best in the class, the GT-R's ability to accommodate four people makes it a better grand tourer than most of its rivals, with the exception of the Porsche 911 Turbo. The car comes standard with leather-trimmed front seats that are rather comfy, however it should be noted that the back seats are set in place and non-adjustable. Although the front seats are motorised, the heated seat option is only available on the driver's side.

2017 Nissan GT-R Cargo Volume

The GT-R features the largest trunk in its segment. The Audi R8 comes close, but the Nissan outshines the competition, boasting a more-than-just-generous 8.8 cubic feet of cargo space making packing for your weekend getaways just a little bit easier.

Deep as the trunk is, the high lift coupled with the confined opening on the cargo door does make loading stuff in slightly cumbersome.

Exterior
8.5/10

"The 2017 Nissan GT-R gets a minor styling update, but it's still distinctively Japanese and almost restrained for the exotic car it is." - The Car Connection

The 2017 GT-R sees the addition of the Nissan's "V-Motion" grille. The emphasis on aerodynamic is evident with the revised front lip spoiler and bumper design which adds more downforce. To enhance airflow, the sills on the sides are pushed outward. The rear end receives new bodywork, including functional vents next to the quad exhaust tips and a raised beltline to make the car appear broader.

2017 Nisssan GT-R features an updated front grille 

Nissan comes standard with 20 inch forged aluminum alloy wheels that feature a sleek and fresh design. The front wheels of the GT-R Coupe come with 9.5 X 20 inch wheels, while the rear wheels feature larger 10.5 X 20 inch wheels that plant the car firmly to the road. The GT-R also sports Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT600 DSST CTT tires as standard.

2017 Nissan GT-R Dimensions and Weight

The Nissan GT-R is by far the heaviest machine among its competitors, weighing in at a hefty 3933 pounds. It is also the longest automobile in its class, with a maximum length of 185.4 inches. The Coupe also has the longest wheelbase (109.4 inches) and is the tallest automobile in its class, standing at 53.9 inches.

Competition
9.0/10

2017 Acura NSX vs 2017 Nissan GT-R Coupe

One of its closest competitors, the Acura NSX trumps the GT-R Coupe on many fronts. The Acura NSX offers more power than the GT-R as well as a compelling driving experience. The NSX is also faster and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 2.7 seconds compared to 2.9 seconds for the GTR But when it comes to the price, the Acura NSX is almost $40,000 more than the Nissan GTR. 

2017 Acura NSX

2017 Audi R8 vs 2017 Nissan GT-R Coupe

The R8 adds a sophisticated touch of style and elegance to the GT-R, which is more focused on performance. The 2017 Audi R8 exudes German elegance and precision handling, albeit its slower performance is due to its heavier weight. In comparison to the GT-dials, R's the Virtual Cockpit is far more appealing to the eye. The Audi does, however, charge a significant premium above the Nissan.

2017 Audi R8

2017 Porsche 911 Turbo vs 2017 Nissan GT-R Coupe

Both the 911 Turbo and the GT-R are quite fast. The 911, on the other hand, is much lighter than the GT-R, allowing it to go swiftly on the road or on the track. The 911 also comes standard with extra safety measures, such as a multi-collision prevention system that helps avoid subsequent accidents in the event of a rear-end collision. The Nissan GT-R, in comparison, is much cheaper than the Porsche. 

2017  Porsche 911 Turbo
Final Verdict

The Nissan GT has been the king of the hill for a while now, ever since it zoomed its way on the automotive scene way back in 2009 and into arduous sports car fans' hearts and continues to do so in it's latest avatar. With it's upgraded interiors, more powerful engine and the option to switch to beast mode with it's highest Nismo trim, the GT-R Coupe continues to be the track-conquering machine that it was originally intended to be.

It may have a bit of competition coming it's way though, in the form of the Acura NSX and the legendary 911 Turbo, which ekes the GT-R out in terms of everyday drivability and handling. There's no doubt, however, that the Nissan GT-R is here to stay. Nissan's engineers seem to have hit the sweet spot by bridging what was the great comfort-performance divide with this track-worthy version of the car.
