NISSAN’S Qashqai is Britian’s best second-hand car.
The Sunderland-built Qashqai has been named overall used car of the year and best used small family car at the What Car? Used Car of the Year Awards 2011.
The Jaguar XF picked up the award for best used executive and luxury car.
Chas Hallett, What Car?’s editor-in-chief, said: “All the teams involved in the production of both the Nissan Qashqai and the Jaguar XF should be really proud of their achievements. The quality of these cars was great when they were new, and three years later they make unbeatable-value used buys.”
Judges praised the Nissan Qashqai’s styling, price and family-friendly cabin, while its maximum five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating and comfortable ride also impressed, as did the low running costs and dependability.
