Good: Great performance and wonderful engine. Seven-speed automatic transmission works well.
Bad: Visibility isn't good. Manual gearbox is clunky. Thirsty and expensive to run. Feeling dated.
Good: Great feelgood roadster. Looks and sounds great. V6 engine delivers muscular performance.
Bad: Firm ride on 19-inch wheels. High CO2 means expensive tax. Far from economical.
Good: Very comfortable and quiet,. Amazing running cost savings compared to diesel. Absolutely no compromise on space or versatility.
Bad: Range anxiety won’t quite go away.
Good: One of the quickest cars money can buy. Twin-turbo V6 develops 560PS. Good value compared to anything else as fast.
Bad: Automatic only. Not suited to traffic or driving in town. Needs a deft hand for wet weather driving. Interior quality and finish are poor given the price.
Good: Radical looks turn heads. Appealing mix between a hatch and an SUV. Seats four in comfort. Impressive direct injected 190PS 1.6-litre turbo drives well.
Bad: Small Boot. Small rear windows make back seats feel gloomy. CVT not very reliable. Standard 1.6 petrol noisy on motorway. 4WD dropped in 2014 revamp.

Bad: Limited range of 100 miles means it cannot fully replace a diesel or hybrid family car.
Good: Low emissions and fuel consumption from 1.2-litre engine. Roomy and seats five. Decent value for money. Bluetooth as standard.
Bad: Lags behind most other small hatchbacks. Not as much hip and shoulder room as headroom. Interior feels cheap in places. Unexciting to drive. Air con not standard on Visia.
Good: Reliable and feels good quality. Car-like interior. Useful rear hinged rear doors on crew cab.
Bad: Ford Ranger is far superior.
Good: Practical design and spacious cabin. Reasonably comfortable. Clear instrument binnacle. Some clever technology on upper grades
Bad: Not very good to drive. Refinement isn't great. Material quality could be better.
Good: Wide range of conversions available including box van and recovery truck. Strong 2.5 dCi engine. Feels robust.
Bad: Cramped cabin feels dated. Engines are noisy.
Good: Good quality small van. Available as a useful seven seat MPV with reasonable luggage space. 1.5 litre dCi is economical. Rides much better than most vans.
Bad: Fairly utilitarian.
Good: Nissan's version of the Renault Master. Wide choice of versions and bodystyles. Long service intervals.
Bad: Interior quality not up to the standard of a Volkswagen Crafter.
Good: Rugged looks. Seven seats. Strong build. Tidy handling and very capable off road. Good value for money.

Good: Refined and comfortable hatchback. Huge amounts of rear legroom. Quiet engines even at motorway speeds. Good equipment levels as standard.
Bad: Ordinary to drive. Drab interior. Doesn't especially stand out from the competition.
Good: One of the best 'crossovers'. 1.5 dCi emits just 99g/km. Improved interior over previous Qashqai. Very smooth and quiet ride.
Bad: Top versions very pricey. DAB reception is poor.
Good: Good quality, practical interior. Efficient diesel engine with plenty of torque. Much improved CVT automatic transmission. Comfortable ride.
Bad: Some interior details seem little cheap. Comfortable ride at expense of enjoyable handling. Rearmost row of seven seaters tight.
