Gallatin Student Wins Free Car for Good Grades

By bharrison | Posted in Nashville Events, Nissan News, Our Customers on Monday, June 26th, 2017 at 4:47 PM

Ke’Shauntez Debow, a sophomore at Gallatin High School, won a brand new car tonight because of good grades. “I’m so surprised,” says Ke’Shauntez, “I never win anything… not even bingo in class!”.

The annual contest, hosted by Newton Motor Group’s two Nissan dealerships, is open to all students enrolled in a middle Tennessee high school. Since the program started in 2009, Newton Nissan has given away eight cars to students in the Nashville area.

The grand prize at each location was a 2017 Nissan Versa, valued at $15,370. “Newton Nissan pays for both the car and sales taxes, so the winning students don’t have to pay anything for their new cars,” says Mike Abbondanza, Newton Motor Group’s Vice President. Students enter the contest by bringing in their report card from the most recent school year. Students increase their chances of winning by making good grades, since they receive one entry per “A” on their report card.

Nashville’s very own News Channel 5’s Senior Meteorologist Lelan Statom helped to host the event, which also featured trivia for prizes before the giveaway. Statom captured the big moment for social media to see. Ke’Shauntez couldn’t hold back the shock and surprise of a brand new car!

What’s New: The 2017 Nissan Rogue

By Kelsey | Posted in Buying a New Car, Nissan News on Friday, March 31st, 2017 at 6:53 PM

Hi! My name is Collin, and here are a few highlights of the new 2017 Nissan Rogue.

It’s what’s on the outside that matters, right?

Compared to the 2016 Rogue, the 2017 Rogue looks more modern with some “edge” in its personality. That’s because this crossover SUV is styled with modern LED lights, it struts a new fascia design (“fascia” is a fancy automotive word that refers to the front components like the grill, bumper, etc.), and it has an all-new wheel design.

The inside matters, too.

Inside, you’re given a new flat-bottom steering wheel. Ok, I know what you’re thinking. What’s so important about a flat-bottom steering wheel? The answer is two-fold. The bottom of a normal steering wheel is, you guessed it, ROUND. By giving it a flat bottom, you gain more space for your legs, which gives you more comfort while driving and more ease while getting in/out. Plus, race cars tend to have flat-bottom steering wheels, so that automatically makes you cool. This leather-wrapped beauty of a steering wheel isn’t just loved for its looks. It’s also heated. Just press the button, and your icicle hands will get all warm and fuzzy (or maybe just the warm part).

This SUV has a 2-person memory driver’s seat and mirrors. That means you can customize and save the position of the seat and mirrors for you and another driver. You save your preferences by pushing the “set” button, and then “1” (for driver 1). The other driver in your family would save their settings by pushing “set” and then “2” (for driver 2). From then on, if someone changes your seats or mirrors, all you’d have to do is press your driver number to get everything back to normal.

My favorite part of the 2017 Nissan Rogue is the remote start option. When you’re within 200 feet of the vehicle (ie: inside your house), you can start it with your remote, allowing your AC/Heat to do it’s magic before you walk out of the house. Don’t worry, even though your car is “on” while you’re inside, the vehicle will remain locked (unless you choose to unlock it), and it can’t shift into gear without your intelligent key inside the car.

These are a few highlights of the 2017 Nissan Rogue. To see it in person, feel free to contact us for a test drive!

Nissan Dealer of the Year… again!

Nissan Dealer of the Year

Most shoppers don’t have an affinity for car dealerships, but our Nashville dealership has proven that it is the exception to the rule. For the second year in a row, Newton Nissan has been named the #1 Nissan Dealership in America by shoppers on DealerRater.

“Car buyers have spoken and have identified Newton Nissan as the best Nissan dealer to do business with in the U.S,” said DealerRater CEO Gary Tucker. “The quality and number of reviews for Newton Nissan speak volumes of the top-notch experiences they provide to customers.”

Out of 1,080 Nissan dealerships in the United States, Newton Nissan’s PowerScores emerged at the top of the class. The PowerScore is determined using a Bayesian algorithm that factors the dealership’s average DealerRater consumer rating and the total number of reviews written about the dealership during the 2016 calendar year.

Founded in 2002, DealerRater, a Company, is the world’s leading car dealer review website that connects consumers with the right dealership. The 2017 Dealer of the Year awards were announced at the National Automobile Dealers Association Awards Ceremony on January 27th.

The annual awards are based on reviews by car shoppers and those who took their vehicles into dealerships for service. Reviewers evaluated Newton Nissan on its customer service, quality of work, friendliness, pricing and overall experience.

“This feels like a David and Goliath moment for us,” says Mike Abbondanza, the Vice President of Newton Nissan. “Most dealerships are owned by big corporations with lots of resources; but our team is small, local, and we put a lot of heart into everything we do.”

Our team has two award-winning Nissan locations on the outskirts of Nashville, and it recently added a Ford and General Motors dealership to its roster. Beyond the national recognition, our team is known for its community involvement like Trunk or Treat, and its annual car giveaway for high school students.

Introducing 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport

By blogsadmin | Posted in Nissan News on Thursday, January 26th, 2017 at 2:15 AM

2017 Nissan Rogue Sport

This January, Nissan released its newest vehicle at the Detroit Auto Show; it is called the Nissan Rogue Sport. It has a sporty new look to go along with the name. It is based off of the current European model, the Qashqai, and you guessed it — it has all of the great features you love about Nissan’s best selling model, the Nissan Rogue, with the addition of cosmetic changes giving it more of an edge.

The Rogue Sport is 12.1 inches shorter than the current Rogue. It also has a shorter wheelbase by 2.3 inches, making it slightly larger than the Nissan Juke. Even though it is smaller than the Rogue, the two share the same chassis, but the Rogue Sport comes with an entirely new design.

The interior is where you will find the similar styling and features of the standard Rogue. The Rogue Sport is available in trim levels you are familiar with: S, SV, and SL. The S comes with the Advanced Assist-Drive Display, Siri Eyes free, Bluetooth Streaming Audio, Rear View Monitor, etc. The SV comes with all of S features, with the addition of 17-inch alloy wheels, Nissan Intelligent Key with push button ignition, Dual Zone climate control, 6-way power driver seat, etc. The SL comes with all the SV features plus 19-inch Aluminum wheels, Nissan Connect with Navigation, Mobile Apps and Services, Around view monitor with moving object detection, and leather seats.

Watch the video below to see and hear about more of the magnificent features that will come standard on the all new Rogue Sport.

We hope that you all are as excited as we are to see this vehicle in person. We will be providing more information about the vehicle and its features, along with videos, when the Rogue Sport arrives in our stores.

2017 Nissan Titan

2017 Nissan Titan2017 Titan Cayenne

The 2017 Nissan Titan was designed with comfort, style, and the ability to get the job done. The Titan’s rugged looks paired with its strength and convenience make it the go-to truck for even the biggest tasks.

The Titan has a smart layout with plenty of room. The interior is comfortable with a quality feel but also has the durability and versatility expected in a truck. Throughout the interior are premium materials, from the seats to the glove compartment. The zero-gravity seats are even weather-resistant. The front seats can be heated or cooled, and the back seats can be heated. Even the steering wheel can be warmed to the comfort of the driver.

The placement of the center stack gives the driver easy access to every button and control, including the climate control system and the centrally located, full-color 7-inch display. By moving the shift lever to the steering column, extra room was created in the center console, leaving plenty of extra storage space and room to stretch out. The middle console even has room for a small laptop. The glove compartment handle is placed closer to the center stack to make it easier for the driver to reach.

The Nissan Intelligent Key allows for the driver to get in and go with the convenient Push Button Start, as long as the key is along for the ride. The Remote Engine Start System with Intelligent Climate Control can adjust temperature and airflow for a quick cool down, or it can warm up the cabin, defrost windows and the windshield, and can even turn on the available heated steering wheel and outside mirrors.

The Nissan Titan’s rear seat gives plenty of stretch-out room and offers up all kinds of options, from a handy work surface to available lockable under-seat storage bins to a and a flat loading floor.

These are just a few of the many features of the 2017 Nissan Titan that elevate it above the competition. All in all, the Titan is a smart choice for any car or truck shopper looking for a vehicle that can do it all.
