Last week, What Car? held their 37th annual awards ceremony in London, sponsored by Warranty Direct.
The Nissan Qashqai walked away with the prestigious Car of the Year award for 2014.
This is the first time that Nissan has won this particular award; with the Sunderland-built Qashqai also taking home the best small SUV award.
What Car? Editor-in-chief Chas Hallett commented: “The all-new Nissan Qashqai brings excellence and polish to a class of cars that is brimming with talent and tempting buys. The Qashqai delivers low costs and first-class levels of comfort, refinement, space and safety.
“Nissan has thought of every last detail, and this complete approach is why the Qashqai is What Car?’s Car of the Year. The Nissan team should be justifiably proud of their achievement.”
The Qashqai was the sixth best-selling car in the UK in 2013, with sales passing the 50,000 mark.
Nissan Motor GB managing director Jim Wright added: “We’re thrilled that What Car? has named the new Qashqai as its 2014 Car of the Year. A huge amount of effort has gone into the design and engineering of the new car, and we’re all extremely excited about creating the template for the second-generation crossover.”
