Greenhous Nissan have reason to celebrate as their popular Qashqai model was crowned for a second year running as ‘Best Small SUV’ in the What Car? 2015 awards. This followed on from its success last year as What Car? Car of the Year 2014. To add to the party mood the all-new Nissan Pulsar, a spacious family hatchback launched last summer, was named ‘Best Family Car under £16,000’ in the immensely competitive Family Car category.

Jim Holder, Editor of What Car?, said: “The Qashqai was chosen on the strength of its overall offering in terms of practicality, refinement and standard equipment.” He added: “The Pulsar, meanwhile, delivers incredible value with the entry-grade Visia. It’s hard to think of any other model in this price bracket that offers such a complete package.”
As standard, the Pulsar 1.2 DIG-T 115 Visia costs £15,995 OTR and benefits from air-conditioning, Bluetooth, electric windows and 16-inch alloys as well as safety equipment such as six airbags, tyre pressure monitoring and electronic stability control. Nissan rolled the two millionth Qashqai off the production line at its Sunderland factory in November last year – making it the fastest car model to reach this milestone in the history of the UK car industry.
