Branded as the UK’s favourite urban crossover, the market-leading Nissan Qashqai has been named ‘Best Small SUV’ in the prestigious What Car? Used Car Awards 2018.
Outperforming a strong group of contenders in the competitive category – including various premium manufacturers, What Car? panel of expert judges were intrigued in the four to six-year-old Qashqai models produced between 2011 and 2013 for its winning combination of comfort, quality and practicality.
Alex Robbins – Used Cars Editor at What Car? Magazine, reported: “The first-generation Nissan Qashqai is still a firm favourite on the used market, and we can see why. Few SUVs of its age so convincingly combine the raised driving position of an SUV with the manageable dimensions of a family hatchback.”
“What’s more, especially in post-facelift form – the Qashqai serves up a compelling blend of comfort, quality and practicality. In addition, its popularity means there are plenty of good-quality examples around to choose from and this keeps prices reasonable, making this superb family-friendly SUV a fantastic used buy.”
Commenting on the award, Alex Smith – Managing Director of Nissan Motor (GB), said: “Ever since it pioneered the crossover sector, the Qashqai has stood head and shoulders above the rest of the field, leading the way in terms of its design, technology, value for money and safety features.”
“The Qashqai continues to win awards and lead its market segment, it’s really pleasing to see that previous generation models are standing the test of time so brilliantly.”
The Qashqai is the most successful model in Europe with a record of approximately 2.3 million sold since the first launched version in 2007.
