The Qashqai is Nissan’s most successful car to date - and it’s easy to see why. It’s well stocked with kit, it’s practical and has some decent engines and gearboxes, so it will make a good used buy.
What's more, the car is built in Britain at the Japanese-owned company’s Sunderland plant.
It’s a shame some of the first models weren’t as well produced as they could have been. That said, the recalls will have ironed out the gremlins, so there are plenty of high-quality, reliable secondhand examples on the market.
