Nissan Reviews

New Cars
Good: Great performance and wonderful engine, easy to drive quickly, seven-speed automatic transmission works well, the only £30,000 hairy chested sportscar.
Bad: Visibility isn't good, manual gearbox loved by some drivers but not by others, thirsty and expensive to run.
Good: Great feelgood roadster, looks and sounds great, V6 engine delivers storming performance.
Bad: Firm ride on 19-inch wheels, high CO2 means expensive tax, far from economical.
Good: Mindblowingly quick and astonishingly capable, twin-turbo V6 develops 560PS, good value compared to anything else as fast.
Bad: Automatic only, not suited to traffic or driving in town, tricky to park, 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. 4WD only available with DIG-T CVT auto. Small rear windows make back seats feel gloomy. CVT not as reliable as Toyota's and Honda's. Standard 1.6 petrol noisy on motorway. 4WD dropped in 2014 revamp.
Good: The first sensible sized electric car at a sensible price, ideal as a second car for short suburban runs or for use in the city.
Bad: Limited range of 100 miles means it cannot fully replace a petrol, 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, was the fastest pick-up in its class, useful rear hinged rear doors on crew cab.
Bad: Bigger than L200 and doesn't handle as well.
Good: Practical design, 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: 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 performance, tidy handling and very capable off road, good value for money.
Bad: Adults will find the rearmost seats rather cramped, vague manual gearshift.
Good: Nissan version of the Renault Trafic, good quality ride and comfortable cabin.
Bad: Starting to feel dated now.
Good: New family hatchback from Nissan to compete with the Focus and Civic.
Bad: Not on sale until autumn 2014.
Good: One of the best crossovers on the market. 1.5 dCi emits just 99g/km, improved interior over previous Qashqai. Very smooth and quiet ride. Very comfortable on 215/60 R17 tyres. 1.2 DIG-T petrol will do 45mpg.
Bad: Top versions very pricey, no larger +2 version.
Good: Good quality, practical interior. Efficient diesel engine with plenty of torque. Much improved CVT automatic transmission. Comfortable ride.
Bad: Some interior details are a little cheap. Comfortable ride comes at the expense of enjoyable handling. Looks a lot like a Qashqai. Rearmost row on seven seat models is tight.
