2021 Nissan GT-R Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2021 Nissan GT-R?

Nissan has earned a spot in the annals of all-time high-performance cars with its iconic GT-R. The current version is a 2+2 supercar with all-wheel drive and a standard 565-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 engine with twin turbochargers; in NISMO models, the engine is rated at 600 hp. The GT-R competes with the Porsche 911 and Chevrolet Corvette.
 
What’s New on the 2021 Nissan GT-R?

There are no significant changes this year.  

What Features in the 2021 Nissan GT-R Are Most Important?

  • Muscular V-6 engine
  • Driver-adjustable adaptive suspension
  • Standard all-wheel drive 
  • 20-inch wheels 
  • Massive brake rotors and Brembo calipers 
  • Backseat can carry adults in a pinch

Should I Buy the 2021 Nissan GT-R?

Buying a GT-R puts you in an exclusive ownership club, as only a few hundred are sold every year — making rivals like the 911 and Corvette look like high-volume models by comparison. But while the GT-R has the chops to run with its competitors, it’s basically the same car that debuted in the U.S. for 2009, making it an old-timer compared with its closest rivals.

Best performance car vs value for money

by John7Wick from Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania on February 25, 2021

Super compact car, acceleration is breath taking, the performance from 2021 GTR is the best you can get. Nismo is just really for track, if you want a daily drive just take a G-TR Performance model. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
