The Qashqai has been a phenomenal success for Nissan over the last few years, so much so that Nissan have had increase production recently to keep up with Worldwide demand, see here for details. And now, news has reach d the dark recesses of MotorMartin Towers that the Nissan Quahqai has seen off tough competition recently to be named Best Mainstream SUV in the 2016 Telegraph Car Awards. The British-built crossover triumphed over a host of key rivals and was singled out by the judging panel for its exceptional refinement, practicality and value for money.
The 2016 Awards were judged by an expert panel of motoring journalists who based their findings on road tests, first drives, extended ownership assessments and The Telegraph’s own 10-point test.
The judges have informed MotorMartin that: “Nissan’s Qashqai held on to class honours ahead of some increasingly talented rivals, with a relaxing driving experience, decent space and good residual values.”
Commenting on the award, Chris Marsh, Marketing Director, Nissan UK shared with MotorMartin that: “This latest award from The Telegraph reinforces what an incredible package the Qashqai is. Nissan defined the crossover segment with the first-generation model and we continue to set the standards with the current car.” And you can’t say fairer than that.
Due to the incredibly positive press and customer feedback since launch way back in March 2007, it has come as no surprise to MotorMartin that this most recent award from The Telegraph is just the latest industry accolade to be bestowed upon the Qashqai since its introduction in 2014. Rather impressively, the Nissan Quashqai was crowned What Car? Car of the Year in 2014, has retained its What Car? Best Small SUV title for three years in a row and has won multiple SUV and crossover awards from Auto Express, Fleet News, Parkers and Honest John.
All in all, a most worthy winner. Congratulations Nissan. Clearly the incredibly popular Quashqai will be a close contender for many years to come.
Where will you go?
