Nissan Qashqai

(2014 - present)

The Nissan Qashqai is a medium-sized SUV/crossover, built here in the UK at Nissan’s Sunderland plant. It is the UK’s biggest-selling British-built car, and one of the top-selling cars in the country.

The current model was launched in 2014, with a facelift in 2017 and further updates in the second half of 2018.

The Nissan Qashqai has scored some good reviews from various UK media sources, but there are now a huge number of similar models from rival manufacturers that are just as good – if not better – in many areas.
