Expert Rating

5.0 (Excellent)
16 City / 23 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2015 Nissan GT-R OVERVIEW

Nissan satisfied the cries of American buyers in 2009 when it added the twin-turbocharged, 480-horsepower, all-wheel-drive GT-R to U.S. dealer stock. Since its release, Nissan has been working hard to make the GT-R better, as the automaker has tweaked the car enthusiasts nicknamed "Godzilla" with each passing year. Like all of the years before it, the 2015 GT-R receives a series of changes that make it even better than last year's model.

What's New for 2015

The biggest change for 2015 is the addition of a Nismo trim, which includes a revised suspension, new body work and a huge engine upgrade. The non-Nismo GT-R also receive some mild changes to the chassis for better handling, and some extra sound insulation and a noise cancelling system to reduce noise in the cabin.

Choosing Your GT-R

2015 Nissan GT-R Front

If you're lucky enough to be checking into the 2015 GT-R, you have a huge decision to make in terms of what engine to opt for. The base GT-R is plenty competent with its 3.8-liter V6 that tosses 545 horsepower and 463 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels, but the Nismo model adds to the fun with 600 ponies and a revised chassis.

If the $149,990 Nismo is a little too pricey for consideration, there is still a pair of GT-Rs to choose from. Picking from the non-Nismo GT-Rs is all a matter of taste, as they both come with the same engine, lightning-fast dual-clutch transmission and chassis. The Black Edition, however, injects some more premium features that make the GT-R a little sexier than the base model and manages to drop the curb weight by 20 pounds.

For 2015, the GT-R comes in a trio of trims:


The Premium trim acts as the base level for the 2015 GT-R and it checks in at $101,770. Most of that cost is in the drivertrain and chassis, but the GT-R Premium is still pretty well equipped, as it features a three-mode dual-clutch transmission, lightweight Rays 20-inch wheels, Dunlop Sport Maxx GT 660 tires, belly pans for reduced aerodynamic drag, multi-LED headlights with automatic on and off, LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, power mirros, navigation with a seven-inch display, a rearview monitor, power windows and door locks, leather front seats with heat and power adjustments, and an 11-speaker Bose audio system with MP3/WMA/CD/AM/FM/SiriusXM capabilities, USB port, Bluetooth audio streaming and steering wheel-mounted controls.

Black Edition

The Black Edition pushes the GT-R's base price up to $111,510, as it adds an extra helping of class and sportiness to this Japanese supercar. The Black Edition adds in a dry carbon-fiber rear spoiler, dark finished and lightened Rays 20-inch wheels, and black and red Recaro front seats and interior accents.


The Nismo model pushes the GT-R's base price to $149,990 and it adds in features that make Godzilla even more track-ready than it is in its standard guise. These additional features include red-accented bodywork, a stiffened chassis, a downforce-enhancing body kit that includes a huge rear wing and, of course, that 600-horsepower twin-turbo V6.

CarsDirect Tip

The base GT-R itself is more car than most buyers can handle, so unless you're looking to tackle the Nürburgring, leave the Nismo trim off your shopping list. Additionally, the Black Edition package is sharp, but its dry carbon-fiber add-on equipment requires special maintenance that could become tedious over time.
