Expert Quotes:

Display screen a “must-see feature”

Standard features include “Bluetooth, keyless entry/start…XM”

Premium adds “Bose audio system with two subwoofers”

The 2009 Nissan GT-R fleshes out its supercar credentials with features that play up its track abilities—and some that make casual driving sessions a bit more enjoyable.

The GT-R comes in two different versions, Base and Premium, which differ only in equipment and options. The base version, Edmunds says, “comes standard with 20-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights, Brembo brakes, a rear spoiler, an electronically adjustable suspension, leather upholstery, power front seats, aluminum-trimmed pedals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, Bluetooth, keyless entry/start, automatic climate control, a six-speaker sound system, XM Satellite Radio, a multifunction driver-configurable information monitor, an in-dash Compact Flash card reader and a navigation system with a 30-gigabyte hard drive, 9.4 gigabytes of which can be used for audio storage."

The Premium version, they report, “adds higher-performance tires, an 11-speaker Bose audio system with two subwoofers, heated front seats, front passenger side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. Notably, side and side curtain airbags are not available on the base model.” In Premium form, the GT-R is better equipped than nearly every supercar researched by TheCarConnection.com.

The GT-R’s navigation and gauges deserve special notice. A “must-see feature,” according to Cars.com, the navigation screen hosts “a total of 11 screens” that “give more information than I've ever seen in a production car, starting with the mundane oil temperature and pressure, turbo boost gauge and fuel economy, and ranging up to steering angle, acceleration and braking in percent, AWD torque distribution, and lateral, acceleration and braking g-force.” The GT-R’s display allows users to customize those screens; Nissan wisely hired the designers (Polyphony Digital) who worked on the Sony PlayStation's Gran Turismo game to design the interface, they add.


The 2009 Nissan GT-R Premium is stacked with luxury features—and some fun toys for the road-and-track crowd.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
