Nissan Atlas Overview

The Nissan Atlas is classed as either a pick up truck or light commercial vehicle which is produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturing company Nissan. This vehicle has been in production since 1982 and is known as the Nissan Cabstar in Europe. This vehicle is built by UD Nissan Diesel for the worldwide market and the Renault-Nissan Alliance in Europe. As it is a joint venture between Nissan and Renault in Europe, there is a Renault version called the Maxity. The size of these vehicles means that they fit in between vans and large trucks. This compact design makes for great manoeuvrability whilst still being capable of great loads. They are quite good on fuel, reliable and have a really good reputation. The cabin is spacious and comfortable with some strong engines. Does this sound anything like your experience of this vehicle?
