The Nissan Qashqai literally saved the company. Until then, Nissan was knocking out the dull – but reliable – Almera, and failing to capture both the hearts of buyers, or a spot at the top of the sales charts.

But the Qashqai reinvented the family car segment, and where it led, ultimately the VW Tiguan, Ford Kuga, Skoda Yeti and KIA Sportage would follow. The Japanese firm couldn’t build enough of them, and we can thank the Nissan Qashqai’s financial success for models like the Nissan 370Z and GTR featuring in the current sales portfolio. 

This five-seat family crossover became the darling of the school run when it launched in the UK in 2007 thanks to its high seating position, roomy interior and range of punchy but frugal diesel and petrol engines. In 2008 the Nissan Qashqai was joined by the Qashqai +2, which as the name suggests, had an extra two seats to become the occasional seven-seater.
