A UK Success Story
The Nissan Qashqai has been built in the Sunderland plant since 2007. It was also the first model to be designed in the UK by their London design team. This first generation ran for 7 years and proved very popular, selling more than 1.24 million units in Europe alone. The second generation is proving equally popular, having sold more than 200,000 units every year since its release.
Strength to Strength
The second generation Qashqai went on sale in the UK during February 2014. It was awarded the prestigious WhatCar? Car of the Year award 2014. While the styling of the first generation was pretty radical, this second generation model falls in line more with the design cues of other Nissan models.
