2017 Nissan Pathfinder

Newly-minted Dove-award winning artist Jaci Velasquez recently took the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum for a month-long test drive! It was her first time to drive a Nissan, and she was impressed by the many features that made her life as a busy mom easier. Read on to find out more of her favorite features!

A Smarter Back-Up Camera

2017 Nissan Pathfinder

Many makes & models now feature rear-view or back-up cameras to help assist drivers; however, the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder has a special upgrade.  Instead of simply having the camera at the back, Nissan added both more cameras with the available Around View monitoring system, as well as the Moving Object Detection system. The combination of the two means you can back up your car seeing all of your surroundings: front, back, and side. You can even be alerted to objects that you cannot see!

Family Entertainment Package

This might have been Jaci’s favorite feature! With the available Family Entertainment Package, you can let your kids in the back watch 2 different movies–at the same time! Think of how much easier family road trips could go. In addition to the two screens in the back, there is one up front, which houses available navigation and Bluetooth. This front screen will also play the selected DVD if the car is in park! Finally, staying connected is easy–with multiple ports for USB, AUX, and even one HDMI.

Hands-Free Liftgate

We’ve all been there: hands full of groceries or equipment, keys stuck in a bag, staring at the rear gate of our car, wondering how to open it. With this vehicle though, you don’t have to worry: simply wave your foot underneath the bumper of your Pathfinder (SL and Platinum). And, automatically, the lift gate will beep and rise!

Simple, luxurious, and easy to use–these three words define the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder experience. Jaci got to experience it for herself, and so can you!

Come see us at Newton Nissan, and find your Pathfinder today!

A huge thank you to Jaci for her review! Watch her full video here!

Newton Nissan Gives: Mustard Seed Communities Update

Monday, November 13th, 2017
Newton Nissan Gives

A few months ago, we told a story, about how “Newton Nissan gives” is a major part of our DNA here. We strive to be a part of our communities, not just a place for customers. And this is not limited to Middle Tennessee; for seven years now, we have partnered with Mustard Seed Communities: an international organization dedicated to helping children around the world. Our partnership began through our founder’s wife, Mrs. Terry Newton, going on one of their trips, and has led to more employees going with them. Every year, we partner with them for their annual Dare to Care Fundraiser. October 7th, 2017 marked its 13th year, and the Newtons hosted it in Atlanta.


And we’re so happy to announce that this event raised

over $200,000 for abandoned & disabled children.

It’s amazing what happens when communities from near and far come together for an important cause! Newton Motor Group once again proudly donated a vehicle to auction off. It is always an honor for us to give back in this way.

What’s the impact?

Mustard Seed Communities holistically meets the needs of children with disabilities who have been abandoned or neglected. They strive to meet physical needs, as well as spiritual and emotional ones. The money raised from this event goes directly to make sure that these children, though once abandoned, are never abandoned again.

Some Very Special Guests

Some of our very own staff members and their families attended the event last month, including Mike Abbandonza, pictured below with Bill Newton. Mike Castro, from our South location in Shelbyville, came with his wife also.

In addition, some of the very men who help run the day-to-day activities of these communities attended. Monsignor Gregory Ramkissoon (below right), founder of Mustard Seed Communities, and Father Garvin Augustine (left), Executive Director of MS International both attended. Here they are with Terry Newton, who chairs this event every year. She also serves on the Board of Directors for Mustard Seed USA.

The Best of the Best: 2017 Nissan Global Award Winners

Monday, November 6th, 2017
Newton Nissan

Here at Newton Nissan, we don’t say we’re #1…unless we are.

And we’ve been named the #1 Nissan Dealership in America by DealerRater in 2016 & 2017. Today, we are proud to announce that we are recipients of the 2017 Nissan Global Award. This award is given to the “best of the best”–the top 50 Nissan Dealerships worldwide, based on volume of sales for 2016.

However, that’s not what this award–what any award–is ultimately about for us. We don’t want to be the best of the best because of sales, but because of our relationships: on our team, in our community, and with our customers. We support our staff by making the workplace positive. And, we link arms with our community by hosting car giveaways, holiday drives, and fun events like Trunk or Treat.Newton Nissan

Finally, day in and day out, we strive to meet our customers where they are and get to know them personally, as well as to get them in the best car for them and their family.

But don’t just take our word for it! Look at what our one of our customers recently said:Newton Nissan


Thank you for trusting us at Newton Nissan with your car needs as well as your personal concerns. We are happy to serve you in whatever way we can.

YOU make us the best of the best!
