Nissan has a long history in Japan dating back to 1914, although the brand name didn’t emerge until the 1930s. Successful in Asian and American markets, it was the 1999 alliance with Europe’s Renault that helped the brand first compete in the UK. Rated sixth in world sales, Nissan now sells about five percent of all cars sold in the UK. Reportedly, the automaker is on track to produce a driverless car by 2020.
If you need a big SUV, the Pathfinder remains a solid choice. With three rows of seats, a split-open tailgate, and a generous boot, this model shares many attributes with the Land Rover, however, the beauty of the Pathfinder is that it’s quite a money-saver.
If a British-born SUV appeals, check out the Nissan Qashqai, currently number six in UK automotive sales. Designed in London and engineered in Bedfordshire, it was first built in Sunderland. They did this, the story goes, to ensure that this SUV knew how to handle European driving. These SUVs offer the exciting Connect system with a 7-inch screen and Bluetooth.
Nissan is also a small car specialist. It offers the Micra, the Pixo and the Note, giving you a choice of sizes and capabilities. The all-electric Leaf appeals to those who are tired of paying too much for petrol, while the Juke is a small, fuel-efficient crossover that excels in the UK market.
If it’s excitement you seek, the Nissan brand offers a trio of excellent sports cars. The GT-R Coupe is said to outperform higher priced rivals, making it good value for the money. The GT-R Nismo adds incredible horsepower, racing from 0 to 60 in just 2.7 seconds. Also handsome and speedy, the 370Z coupes and convertibles offer a new take on a true classic.
