The Nissan Qashqai has been voted ‘Used Car of the Year 2011’ for the second year running by CAP the UK’s independent benchmark used car pricing experts.
The Nissan Qashqai was chosen from a shortlist of six models and points were awarded by the judging panel based on CAP’s criteria of excellence in affordability and practicality of ownership, trusted reputation, retail popularity and innovative impact on the motor industry.
Unlike other car awards, the CAP Used Car of the Year is designed to acknowledge all-round excellence from the perspective of everyone touched by the vehicle, including private owners, company car drivers, fleet operators and even used car dealers themselves. The Qashqai scores highly in every area of CAP’s judging criteria and delivers significant benefits to everyone in the chain of supply, from dealers to owners and drivers.
The current Nissan Qashqai production line in Sunderland has been running around the clock for more than a year to meet global demand, producing an average of 1,200 Qashqai’s per day. No other car is made in such numbers in the UK, and Nissan is easily the UK’s biggest car manufacturer.
