Nissan Qashqai King of the Crossover SUVs

If you had told anyone ten years ago that not only would Nissan have one of the most popular cars in the market, but also that every other car company would be trying to follow their lead, you might have seen more than a few raised eyebrows. But thatís what Nissan did with their hugely popular and innovative Qashqai.

The Definitive Crossover SUV

First released in 2007, the Nissan Qashqai was launched as a new entry into the family car market. A move away from the standard MPV, the Qashqai retained the sportiness of an SUV whilst maintaining the functionality required from a family car.

Despite its Japanese roots, the car was styled and designed in the UK by Nissan Design Europe, based in London. The car was an immediate success, selling over 100,000 units in the first year. In the total 7.5 year production run, over 1.24 million Nissan Qashqais have been sold across Europe.

Its success has led to practically every other car company venturing into the crossover SUV market. Even Jaguar (with the F-Pace) and Lamborghini have begun production of a model. The crossover SUV model is now the most popular large family car choice in the UK and was the 5th most purchased car in 2015.

Important to the UK

The Nissan Qashqai is not just a popular choice. It is also vitally important to the UK economy, in particular the North East of England and Sunderland where the Nissan factory is based. The popularity of the car means that the production line is constantly working, with demand exceeding supply. It was important the car was successful, as Nissan were withdrawing the Primera and Almera from the UK market. If the car flopped, so could the factory. Thankfully for Sunderland and the UK, the car was a huge hit.
