There’s no denying that the technology within cars has come a long way in the past few years. Newer models feature technologies that can do some amazing things, such as drive themselves, prevent collisions, and more. Even so, Nissan make have just taken the cake. Meet the Nissan Juke SOAK, a crossover designed to sense driver dehydration.
After a study by Loughborough University found that dehydration can affect reaction time as much as driving under the influence, Nissan took action by partnering with Droog Design. The two went on to create the Nissan Juke SOAK, or “Sweat Sensitive Textile Coating.” The spray-on compound is capable of detecting dehydration through sweat.
As we’ve seen from all of the brand’s latest innovations, Nissan leaves no stone unturned when it comes to safety. The SOAK technology changes color when it comes in contact with sweat. If it’s yellow, the driver needs to drink more water. Blue means that the driver is sufficiently hydrated.
While there’s no word on whether the Nissan Juke SOAK will make it to production, the concept is interesting all on its own. This latest technology is just another way that Nissan is looking to make the roads of the future a safer place.

The 2016 Nissan Murano is a standout amongst SUVs, and it proved that with its recent honor from U.S. News & World Report. The new Murano was named the 2016 Best 2-Row SUV for Families.
This wasn’t the Murano’s first award this year from U.S. News & World Report. It was honored with one of the magazine’s “Best Cars for the Money” awards. But its latest honor was being named top choice in the 2-Row SUV category as part of the Best Cars for Families awards program.
The Murano earned this award for a number of reasons. It expresses Nissan’s advanced design and amazing available technology. NissanConnect with Navigation, an 8-inch color display with multi-touch control, and Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System are just some tech elements that make the Murano more convenient.
Its luxury and safety played a factor in its award, too. Its affordability makes it the best car for the money, but it’s not just the long-term low ownership costs that keep it affordable. The editors wrote, “It’s also our Best 2-Row SUV for Families because it has the leading combination of interior space, available family-friendly features, and safety and reliability ratings in its class.”

The already-exciting Nissan Altima just got better. The automaker has unveiled the overhauled 2016 Nissan Altima, and although it’s technically just a mid-cycle refresh, the updates are significant, and worthwhile.
The current generation Nissan Altima is just three years old, and automakers typically try to get at least five years from a generation, before unveiling an all-new version. A mid-cycle refresh typically consists of a few styling updates, and maybe some new technology. The Altima took it a step further, offering a new look, improved efficiency, new driving feel, and a wide range of new connectivity, safety, and convenience features.
“Despite the remarkable success of the current model Altima in the marketplace, which has seen a more than 60 percent increase in sales since 2009, no area was left untouched in redesigning our cornerstone Altima sedan for the 2016 model year,” said Pierre Loing, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. in a statement. “While so much attention in the marketplace currently is focused on compact SUVs like our redesigned Nissan Rogue, the mid-size sedan segment remains strong and has become extremely competitive. We’re determined to keep our sales growth alive with this vibrant new Altima for 2016.”
The 2016 Nissan Altima’s updates were made with input from current Nissan Altima customers. The new Altima promises to deliver a quieter ride, more standard features, more personal style, and a more responsive driving experience.
