Nissan Multi Purpose Vehicles (MPV) – Seven or More Seats
Nissan have long-since made cars that are appealing to the masses. The Micra, for instance, is one of the much-loved cars and has been around in different guises for almost 30 years. With the market demanding multi-purpose vehicles, Nissan have taken to it and have three MPVs that are well worth a look.
Whether you need to carry more than four or five people around at the same time, head off-road or carry lots of items, Nissan’s MPVs are some of the most practical and versatile cars around. Renowned for being user-friendly and have cheeky-looks, they have a charm that other manufacturers from Japan simply cannot match.
Nissan – Qashqai+2
The Qashqai+2 is one of the newest mini-MPVs available on the market right now. The Qashqai +2 is a spin-off of the five-seater Qashqai, but now comes with seven seats and a little more head- and legroom. It’s classed as a seven-seater but those extra seats in the boot are only for children and even then, only for short journeys. The Qashqai+2is a little longer than the normal one and that has made it lose its chunky looks and appeal slightly, but it still has a certain pull to it that other cars in its class, the Mitsubishi Grandis for one, simply cannot match.
*** Nissan Qashqai+2 ***
The cheapest Qashqai +2 will set you back around £16,318 and with all of the options ticked, it will cost £24,704, which is a little much. The puny engines, the 1.5 diesel and the 1.6 petrol engines are drab, noisy and gutless, so it’s best to opt for the 2.0-litre petrol engine, which comes with an automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive.
