Nissan Reviews

New Cars
Good: Impressive performance for a sub-£30k car. Nismo variant turns heads like a supercar.
Bad: Expensive to run. Poor fuel economy. More a muscle car than a sports car. Dated cabin.
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 550PS. Good value compared to any other supercar.
Bad: Automatic only. 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. Standard 1.6 petrol noisy on motorway. High number of CVT transmission failures. 4WD dropped in 2014 revamp. DPF problems common on 1.5dCi.
Good: A realistic alternative to petrol or diesel cars. Easy to drive. Practical enough for a family.
Bad: Limited range. Interior is a little drab. Basic models go without an improved heater, so lose range in winter.
Good: Low emissions and fuel consumption from 1.2-litre engine. Roomy and seats five. Decent value for money. Bluetooth as standard.
Bad: Not as much hip and shoulder room as headroom. Interior feels cheap. Unexciting to drive. Air con not standard on Visia. Clutch failures common.
Good: 3.5 tonne towing capacity. SUV-like comfort and refinement. One-tonne payload.
Bad: Rear legroom on king cab models is poor. Some interior plastics feel cheap.
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: 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 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. 1.2DIG-T has common problems with stop/start and losing power.
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.
