Nissan's truck lineup continues to remain strong, with the Frontier compact pickup recording its best October ever and with 270 units sold, up 61.7 per cent over October 2011. The Nissan Titan recorded its sixth month of consecutive sales growth and best October on record with 356 units sold, and the Nissan Xterra's sales also increased, jumping 49 per cent.

The Infiniti brand has posted year-over-year increases each month so far in 2012.

"We are continuing Nissan's most aggressive product offensive yet; starting with the all-new Altima, we are set to launch five new products in 15 months. We're pleased that – as the sales figures show - the Canadian market is embracing Altima's ‘class-above' appeal, and we're excited about the arrival of the redesigned Sentra and Pathfinder this month," says Allen Childs, president of Nissan Canada. "The all-new JX continues to shake up the luxury crossover segment, and the ever-popular G family is helping to drive the Infiniti brand's strong sales momentum and double-digit calendar year growth."
