Nissan car reviews
The Nissan Note does a reasonable job in most areas, but many rivals do better. For instance, the Note’s practicality is one of the high points, but a Citroen C3 Picasso does better on that score, plus it’s also more stylish and better on quality. Most disappointing with the Note, though, is that the jumpy ride and inconsistent controls make the car rather too wearing to drive.

The Nissan LEAF is the first all-electric car which can realistically compete with established, conventional engined hatchbacks like the Focus and Golf. Its range is enough for 95 per cent of UK driver’s daily needs.

The Nissan Micra offers practical, low-cost transport and is cheap to run. It's bettered in most other areas by more accomplished rivals though.

The original mini-SUV is distinctively styled, good value for money and it’s well built. The chassis and engines are beginning to show their age, though.

Nissan’s big Navara pickup has been one of those niche products with staying power. When new in 2005 it was physically bigger than many of the pickups Brits were used to, and although a single cab version is notionally offered here, Nissan hasn’t made much of an effort to promote it, instead going for four-door, King and double-cab variants, which have attracted both lifestyle and business buyers.

This is the mid-life facelift of the Nissan Juke, the crossover which took the UK by storm when it was released in 2010, wildly exceeding sales targets and creating long waiting lists. While its unconventional design was polarising, the Juke quickly became a real fashion statement.

Yes, yes. We know what you’re thinking. “Oh dear. The Nissan Primera,” you’ll be saying. “And not even the mildly interesting looking latest version, but instead that first-generation model from the mid-’90s. The one that looked just like every other repmobile. Well, this is going to be about as exciting as a piece of blank white paper. I’ll just skip this.”

When the Qashqai was released back in 2007, it was pretty revolutionary - the first car to effectively mix the styling of a 4x4 with the compact dimensions and low running costs of a family hatchback, and it was a huge success. With the new Qashqai, Nissan has gone for evolution rather than revolution but, take it from us, it’s been really, really effective.

Just a few weeks ago, Nissan launched its new second-generation Qashqai, which is widely expected to be a front-runner in its class. But, it’s easy to forget the Qashqai’s humble origins. Mainly because they weren’t exactly memorable.
