The Qashqai received the prestigious overall ‘The Sun Car of the Year’ award as well as being named ‘Small SUV/Crossover of the Year’.
The Sun Motors Editor Rob Gill said: “There is no better family car. It just fits your life. The all-new Qashqai is the perfect recipe: Practical, sensibly-priced, stylish, hybrid and the posh new cabin is packed with all the technology and luxuries we love.
“The cherry on top is that Qashqai is designed, engineered and built in Britain. It’s the original crossover and still the best. Well done, Nissan.”
Andrew Humberstone, Managing Director, Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd., commented: “We are incredibly proud to see the All-New Nissan Qashqai officially recognised in the 2021 Motor Awards, both as the best crossover and The Sun’s overall Car of the Year. This is a substantial vote of confidence from some of the UK’s most popular newspapers and their expert motoring correspondents.
‘‘The Qashqai is a tribute to the Nissan teams who designed, engineered, built and are selling this car right here in the UK. I’m also delighted that just a few months since launch, All-New Qashqai closed the important September month by reclaiming its title as the UK’s best-selling SUV.”
With a new electrified powertrain, class-leading technologies and advanced connectivity, the latest Qashqai has redefined the popular crossover segment once more.
Designed in London, engineered in Cranfield and built in Sunderland, the latest Nissan Qashqai retains the signature qualities of the previous versions, namely elegant design, intelligent packaging and efficient powertrains, combined with an engaging driving experience.
A showcase of innovative engineering, the new model sees the introduction of advanced technologies such as ProPILOT with Navi-link and Adaptive LED headlights.
A refined cabin environment, massaging front seats and segment-leading head-up display are complemented by family-friendly features such as 85-degree rear opening doors and 504-litres of boot space.
