British-built Nissan models score top awards

The Sunderland-built Nissan Qashqai crossover and the Note family hatchback scooped top titles at this year's Carbuyer Awards.

The multi-award-winning Qashqai was crowned Best SUV and 4x4 by the motoring website, while the well-equipped Note was named the best car for under £150 a month.

The models were judged by Carbuyer's panel of experts, based on the areas of most interest to real new car buyers, including running costs, practicality and reliability.

Stuart Milne, editor of Carbuyer, said: "The Nissan Qashqai is a comfortable SUV but it's no more expensive to run or harder to drive than a hatchback. It's no surprise that the Qashqai is one of Britain's most popular cars."

Discussing the Note, he said: "There are cheaper cars out there but none offers as much space, comfort and equipment as the Nissan Note. And all for less than £150 a month."

James Wright, managing director of Nissan Motor (GB), added: "Both the Note and the Qashqai were designed, developed and built by Nissan here in the UK and so it's great to have them recognised in this way by one of the nation's leading motoring websites.

"It's now just over a year since the all-new Qashqai was launched to almost universal acclaim and the fact it's still making waves, leading the way and winning awards is yet more evidence of what a fantastic car it really is."
