Take to the road with Nissan cars

Founded in 1934, Nissan began life as a small car manufacturer, but over recent years has certainly branched out, to the extent that they actually produced rocket engines. However, chances are you are would prefer something that you can drive, rather than send into space.

Nissan models

Nissan was an early entrant in the SUV market with the Qashqai. The raised driving position offers a better view of the road ahead, and it's no surprise that it is a firm favourite. The Qashgai has all the perks of a hatchback and a 4x4, which is great for those with young families who are always out and about. The Nissan Juke is its smaller sibling. Technically a mini SUV, the Juke is ideal for urban driving, but also has a dynamic control system that can easily handle more challenging conditions. For the ultimate in performance SUV, look to the Juke NISMO RS.

The Note is Nissan's popular people carrier, which has a boxy shape to maximise practical space, a choice of petrol and diesel engines, and offers a smooth ride. Probably the most well-known of the Nissan models is the Micra, a small car with an incredible record for reliability. Perfect for city dwellers, some Micra models feature advanced technology and all perform well on the urban roads.

Nissans all-electric vehicle, the LEAF, is a best-seller thanks in no small part to being able to cover up to 100 miles on just a single charge. The LEAF is ideal for motorists looking to be as eco-friendly as possible, but want an electric vehicle that goes the distance.

Whatever you are looking for in a car, be it an X-Trail, Pathfinder, Navara 4x4, 370Z, or GT-R sports car, you are bound to find your match. Alternatively, if you are looking for spare parts for your Nissan, you may be able to find what you are looking for among the range of salvage cars on eBay.
