We spoke to the folks at Nissan
and got some more info for you. We were wondering what the difference between the base car and the Journey was. The Journey adds the following items as standard equipment:
- Auto on/off headlights
- Dual HVAC
- In-dash CD6
- 8-way Power Passenger Seat
Additionally, there are no
options available for the base car. Buyers must
step up to Journey or Sport 6MT if they want to add premium, navigation, sport, etc.
