Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Armada gets a significant makeover for 2021, starting with a squarer front end featuring prominent headlights. The design revisions reach out back, too, with a new bumper and taillights that are connected by a continuous trim piece. There's also a newly available Midnight Edition with blacked-out trim. Inside, Nissan redesigned the center stack and added a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay.

PROS
Serenely quiet and comfy,
smooth,
potent powertrain,
pillowy ride.

CONS
Dreadful fuel economy,
some dated interior elements,
wanders at highway speeds.

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Stylish interior and exterior,
efficient powertrains,
driver-assistance tech comes standard.

Cons
Smallish storage cubbies,
infotainment takes getting used to,
plug-in hybrid powertrain could use some refinement.
