Built in Britain and priced from just £17,995 RRP the stunning newcomer sets new standards in the crossover sector its trailblazing predecessor created. Awarding the new Qashqai What Car?'s most coveted award, editor-in-chief Chas Hallett, said: "Nissan has thought of every last detail and this complete approach is why the Qashqai is our Car of the Year.

"The Nissan team should be justifiably proud of their achievement."

He added: "The Qashqai delivers low costs and first class levels of comfort, refinement, space and safety."
