The Nissan Qashqai and Nissan Juke have proved to be a sales success for Nissan. The Nissan Qashqai sales have hit the 30,000 mark so far this year which is up 38% on 2009. The Nissan Juke sold 1600 in its first week on sale.
The Nissan Qashqai is not quite a 4x4 but it is more than just a hatchback. The space is excellent in the Nissan Qashqai with plenty of head and legroom. The rear seat bench is wide enough to carry three. The boot is big and can be expanded to 660 litres when the rear seats are split. There are four engine options available, the 1.6 and two litre petrol and a 1.5 and two litre diesel. The entry level has air conditioning, alloy wheels, CD player, four powered windows and a Bluetooth hands free telephone kit.
The Nissan Juke fits into the Nissan range between the Nissan Note compact family car and the Nissan Qashqai. Offering both innovative design and great value in a British-built package, the Nissan Juke is available with a choice of three engines. Like the Nissan Qashqai the Nissan Juke will be available in two-wheel drive versions as well as the range-topping all-wheel drive model produced at Nissan’s plant in Oppama, Japan, which also supplies Nissan Juke to the domestic Japanese market, the US and overseas markets.
