Two Awards For British-Built Nissans
The British built Nissan Qashqai and Note scooped top honours at this years CarBuyer Awards.
The Nissan Note was named the best car for under £150 per month and the multi-award winning Qashqai was crowned Best SUV and 4×4 by the unfluential motoring website.
The Carbuyer’s panel, judged on the areas that mostly interest real new car buyers, which include practicality, reliability and running costs.
Stuart Milne, Editor of Carbuyer, which gets more than 1.4 million unique visits a month, said: “The Nissan Qashqai is a comfortable SUV but it’s no more expensive to run or harder to drive than a hatchback.
“It’s no surprise that the Qashqai is one of Britain’s most popular cars.”
Of the Nissan Note, he added: “There are cheaper cars out there but none offers as much space, comfort and equipment as the Nissan Note. And all for less than £150 a month.”
James Wright, Managing Director of Nissan Motor (GB), said: “Both the Note and the Qashqai were designed, developed and built by Nissan here in the UK and so it’s great to have them recognised in this way by one of the nation’s leading motoring websites.
“It’s now just over a year since the all-new Qashqai was launched to almost universal acclaim and the fact it’s still making waves, leading the way and winning awards is yet more evidence of what a fantastic car it really is.
