The 2020 Nissan GT-R marks a half-century of Nissan’s famous performance car

The 2020 Nissan GT-R continues a half-century of Nissan’s famous nameplate and its tradition of supercar-slaying performance. While this version of the GT-R was introduced back in 2009, Nissan has updated its performance and equipment over the years. Other competitors from 2020, like the Chevy Corvette and Porsche 911, feel newer on the inside and offer more modern infotainment systems, but the GT-R remains an exceptional performer.

For 2020, Nissan revised the GT-R’s engine tuning to improve responsiveness, added horsepower to the Track Edition trim level (bringing it up to 600 hp), added an optional carbon-fiber roof and carbon-ceramic brakes, and offered a 50th anniversary appearance package. With an incredibly smart all-wheel-drive system and a ride that’s surprisingly comfortable for a sports car, the GT-R is an easy car to drive fast and to drive every day.

5 reasons to buy the 2020 Nissan GT-R

What We Like

Acceleration: The GT-R’s V6 makes up to 600 horsepower in the GT-R Nismo and Track Edition trim levels. In Edmunds' testing, the base 565-horsepower V6 was good for a 0-60 mph time of just 3.1 seconds.

Handling: With its very capable all-wheel-drive system, the GT-R demands less of the driver while providing supercar levels of performance. Whether on a mountain road or a racetrack, the GT-R can be piloted with ease.

Ride: The adaptive suspension on the Pure and Premium trims does a very good job soaking up bumps in the road, especially in its Comfort setting. It remains sporty, but many cars with this level of performance can be harsh and unforgiving on rough roads. 

What Needs Improvement

Dated technology: The dated graphics on the GT-R’s infotainment, lack of Android Auto (iPhone owners, rejoice: The GT-R does have Apple CarPlay®), and almost total lack of driver aids make the GT-R feel dated compared to its closest competitors in price and performance.
