“We live in economically trying times and Nissan Intelligent Choice is for customers who are shopping on a budget but who are not willing to compromise on safety or comfort,” says Mr. Leslie Ramsoomar, Head of Sales for the Nissan Group of Africa.
Each and every Nissan Intelligent Choice vehicle, carries with it the Nissan Intelligent Choice Customer Promise and it means the cars on offer are all subject to a 160-point check as well as a vehicle integrity assessment.

“In addition, all vehicles come with a Nissan warranty of at least two years – or 50 000 kms – as well as 24 hour roadside assistance, offering round-the-clock peace of mind.”
Every Nissan Intelligent Choice customer will enjoy a host of free lifestyle benefits, too and free parking at major shopping centers throughout South Africa.

Through the Nissan Intelligent Choice Rewards Programme, customers also get cash back every time they purchase fuel at a Sasol and Total service station.
“Every time you swipe your Nissan Intelligent Choice Loyalty Card, you get back 30c for every liter of fuel that you have purchased from Sasol and 25c from Total, can keep track of your rewards on the Nissan Intelligent Choice customer portal and you can redeem them at a variety of exciting stores including Pick ‘n Pay, Woolworths and Disc hem and you can also use them on e-commerce platforms such as Taxify, Uber, Uber Eats, Takealot.com, Superbalist etc. and the list will continue to grow” says Mr. Pillay.
