Independent, impartial advice for car buyers and car owners

The ten best-selling cars of 2017

Despite a downbeat year for new car sales, these models remained popular with car buyers

4. Nissan Qashqai (2016: 5th)

It doesn’t seem to matter that virtually every car manufacturer has launched a compact SUV to compete in the market that the Qashqai virtually created, the mid-sized Nissan crossover keeps on beating them all away with a stick. A facelifted model arrived in the middle of 2017, which helped keep sales ticking along, and it seems that the Nissan Qashqai can do no wrong.

Sales were up by 2.4% in 2017, and the Qashqai improved from 5th to 4th in the top ten list (64,216 registrations in 2017 vs. 62,682 in 2016), helped by the Corsa’s plunge from second to fifth. With optional new semi-autonomous driving features set to be added to the range this year, Nissan will be hoping that it can maintain the Qashqai’s momentum through 2018.
