NISSAN GT-R AND VERSA NOTE NAMED '2017 AUTOBYTEL BUYER'S CHOICE AWARDS' WINNERS  

The GT-R, Nissan's legendary supercar, received a fresh look inside and out, as well as major driving performance enhancements and key new features for the 2017 model year. It is equipped with a 3.8-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 rated at 565-horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque, dual-clutch sequential 6-speed transmission and electronically controlled ATTESA E-TS all-wheel-drive system. The GT-R NISMO model offers 600 horsepower and additional motorsports-inspired styling and equipment.

The popular Versa Note has been enhanced for the 2017 model year with refreshed exterior and interior treatments. It continues to feature a 109 horsepower 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder and Xtronic transmission with D-Step Shift logic.

'While the GT-R and Versa Note occupy somewhat opposite ends of Nissan's product lineup in terms of performance and pricing, they share a strong interest by consumers conducting new vehicle research on the Autobytel website,' said Eric Ledieu, director, Chief Marketing Manager - Sedans, Sports Cars & NISMO, Nissan North America. 'Active research is a great indicator of a vehicle's vitality in the marketplace and we're pleased to be among the leaders in this new Autobytel study.'
