Nissan is certainly a company not afraid to experiment when it comes to new cars. The Qashqai is often hailed as the first true crossover SUV and it’s currently one of the best-selling cars in the UK. Many doubted that the ‘unusual’ looking Juke would ever sell, yet it has become very popular and the battery powered Leaf could be steadily switching the country on to a brighter, cleaner future of electric vehicles.
If you’re after a cheap, economical car without too many modern gadgets and gizmos, you should find what you’re looking for with Nissan. Although the Micra, Note and Pulsar all represent cheap and cheerful motoring options, where this Japanese company really excels is in the world of sports cars.
The 370Z takes and old-school approach to speed yet comes with very contemporary styling, while the GT-R somehow manages to combine everyday usability with supercar-worrying performance.
