Let the Force be with Plaza Nis­san’s 2017

The Hamilton Spectator - - WHEELS -

The 2017 Nis­san Rogue Star Wars Lim­ited Edi­tion made a huge splash with its re­cent de­but at the Los An­ge­les In­ter­na­tional Auto Show.

It made its en­trance sur­rounded by Im­pe­rial Storm Troop­ers, laser beams and space ships.

I’m not a die-hard Star Wars fan, and truly don’t un­der­stand a lot of the craze, but this in­tro­duc­tion was enough to wet my ap­petite and travel to a place far, far away to test it – Well, On­tario, Canada which I think is far enough.

This Lim­ited Edi­tion is only avail­able in two colours – mag­netic black or glacier white. I was given the lat­ter as a test ve­hi­cle.

Un­der­neath all the Star wars in­signia and ex­tra fea­tures is the pop­u­lar SV AWD with the added Moon­roof Pack­age. It comes with the stan­dard 2.5-litre in­line four-cylin­der en­gine mated to an Xtronic con­tin­u­ously vari­able trans­mis­sion that pushes out 170 hp and 175 lb/ft of torque.

Ex­ter­nally the Star Wars Lim­ited Edi­tion dif­fer­en­ti­ates it­self with the ad­di­tion of lim­ited edi­tion plates on the lower front doors with Rebel Al­liance and Galac­tic Em­pire de­cals lo­cated on the c-pil­lars.

Ad­di­tion­ally there is a Star Wars logo placed on the rear bumper pro­tec­tor. Over and above the logo’s Nis­san have added matt black 17-inch alu­minium–al­loy wheels, a black front grille with lower fin­isher, black door han­dles and roof rails. This lim­ited edi­tion also comes with stan­dard LED head­lights.

In­ter­nally the ad­di­tional fea­tures in­clude Star Wars logo il­lu­mi­nated kick plates, lim­ited edi­tion floor mats, Rebel Al­liance and Galac­tic Em­pire cup holder in­serts and ac­cent light­ing.

The moon­roof is not usu­ally of­fered on the stan­dard SV trim when or­der­ing in glacier white, but is stan­dard with the Star Wars Lim­ited Edi­tion.

The black grille with the black al­loy wheels and es­pe­cially with the pri­vacy glass, en­hances the styling giv­ing it a more ag­gres­sive stance than the stan­dard trim and makes it stand out even be­fore you no­tice the lim­ited edi­tion in­signia.

The cabin is iden­ti­cal to the SV model, when sit­ting in the driv­ers seat there is noth­ing to iden­tify this spe­cial edi­tion as be­ing any dif­fer­ent than the stan­dard model.

I was ex­pect­ing rather more from the driver’s point of view, maybe a logo on the dash or even Darth Vader voice com­mands but I was to be dis­ap­pointed. There wasn’t even a spe­cific holder to con­tain a light saber prop­erly. That be­ing said the dash is sim­ple and un­clut­tered with all in­stru­men­ta­tion be­ing eas­ily read and con­trolled. It comes with the new stan­dard D-shaped steer­ing wheel that adds a sense of sporti­ness.

The six-way power ad­justed front bucket driver seat is com­fort­able and sup­port­ing with the rear seats hav­ing plenty of legroom with ad­e­quate space for two full grown adults and a child.

Since 1973, Plaza Nis­san has proudly served cus­tomers from the Greater Hamil­ton Area with the high­est qual­ity of sales, ser­vice, and fi­nanc­ing. They be­lieve that cus­tomer ser­vice is the first pri­or­ity with any deal­er­ship, and that’s why they pride them­selves on friendly, knowl­edge­able, low-pres­sure ser­vice for ev­ery­one who walks through our doors.

“Cus­tomers are our fo­cus,” Sam Miceli, Gen­eral Sales Man­ager at Plaza Nis­san says of their pri­or­ity. “We treat ev­ery­one who walks through our doors with kind­ness, hon­esty, and re­spect. We’ll walk you through ev­ery step of the pur­chas­ing process, and an­swer any ques­tions or con­cerns you may have.”

Cus­tomers through­out Hamil­ton, Stoney Creek, An­caster, Burling­ton, and Oakville know that if they’re look­ing for the high­estqual­ity Nis­san’s at the most af­ford­able prices - you come to Plaza Nis­san, adds Bren­dan Maslen, Floor Man­ager.

Another in­cen­tive to buy­ing at Plaza Nis­san other than hav­ing your choice of one of the largest in­ven­to­ries in On­tario of mod­els like Mu­rano, Sen­tra, Al­tima, Rogue and Pathfinder, you will re­ceive free brake pads for life!

Let’s face the facts - no mat­ter how re­li­able your ve­hi­cle is, it will still need at least ba­sic main­te­nance to keep it run­ning smoothly. And while re­fill­ing the gas tank and in­flat­ing the tires are sim­ple enough, more com­pli­cated jobs like oil changes or chang­ing sus­pen­sion bush­ings are best left to the pro­fes­sion­als. That’s where Plaza Nis­san comes in.

Their full-ser­vice Ser­vice Depart­ment has every­thing you need to keep your ve­hi­cle run­ning long af­ter the odome­ter has en­tered six dig­its. Their team of ser­vice tech­ni­cians are all fac­tory-trained and have years of ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing with a wide va­ri­ety of man­u­fac­tur­ers - not just Nis­san.

If you’re ready to ex­pe­ri­ence a bet­ter kind of deal­er­ship ex­pe­ri­ence in the Greater Hamil­ton Area re­gard­less of what kind of Nis­san you’re look­ing for, then come to Plaza Nis­san!
