Nissan Qashqai: the latest million seller versus the first

Rated 4.5 out of 54.5

James Foxall, 09 August 2011 11:29

Rather like female Formula One drivers, the club of million-selling motors designed and built in Britain is neither fast nor pretty – but definitely exclusive. And with production of the Nissan Qashqai slipping into seven figures the fellowship has just initiated a new member. Remarkably, (and conveniently for us) Nissan has managed this feat exactly half a century after this ...

Nissan Qashqai 1.5dCi Pure Drive (2011) CAR review

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

Ben Pulman, 11 May 2011 07:00

This is the Nissan Qashqai Pure Drive. Pure Drive is a badge you won’t see on the back of GT-R, because it’s reserved for Nissan’s most environmentally friendly models (bar the Leaf EV). Changes in 2010 ushered in a sharper look for Nissan’s popular urban soft-roader, and now a series of MY11 updates includes a more powerful diesel engine, and ...

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

Ben Pulman, 05 May 2011 13:10

This is the new Nissan Micra, but it’s not the first time we’ve tested it. This is in fact our third exposure to Nissan’s new Micra: after testing a Thai-spec car in Thailand, and an almost-finished prototype on a test track in Japan, we’ve finally driven a UK car on UK roads. The Micra’s no longer a UK-built car though ...

This is the Nissan Compact Sport Concept, which made its debut at the 2011 Shanghai motor show. Nissan Compact Sports Concept: Is that... a Micra? The basis of the Compact Sport Concept does indeed look like Nissan's global small car. But the Compact Sport Concept is 81mm lower, 51mm wider and nearly 300mm shorter than the five-door Micra we've been underwhelmed by since it ...

This is the new Leaf Nismo RC, a competition concept using the Leaf's EV drivetrain which will debut at the 2011 New York motor show. Nissan Leaf Nismo RC: is it radio-controlled? It looks like an R/C racer... It's not a mini model racer, despite having a composite body, battery pack and electric motor – the RC stands for Racing Competition. Nismo (Nissan's ...

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Mark Hamilton, 31 March 2011 12:41

CAR's Gavin Green drove a pre-production Nissan Leaf in Japan last year and came away impressed. So did European Car of the Year judges, who awarded the Nissan Leaf the COTY award for 2011. The Leaf continues to garner accolades in the media and positive reports from all who drive it. But we haven't had a chance to try the Leaf on ...

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

Anthony ffrench-Constant, 23 March 2011 10:45

Jif to Cif… Marathon to Snickers… Opal Fruits to Starburst… Ulay to Olay… And, boasting such an wholly absurd name that I have absolutely no idea what it might once have been called or, indeed, what the hell it does anyway; Cillit Bang (the missus tells me it’s a grooming product for tidying the nether regions of those toy dogs ...

Rated 4 out of 54

Tim Pollard, 09 February 2011 14:26

The new Nissan Esflow will be shown at the 2011 Geneva motor show. It's essentially a rebodied Leaf, using that car's battery know-how wrapped in a dramatic ...
