The Nissan Qashqai is currently the best model those looking for a second hand car can buy, according to used car pricing expert CAP.
For the second year running, the compact SUV crossover has been named Used Car of the Year at CAP's annual awards.
A panel of judges comprising used car market and vehicle valuation experts at CAP praised the Qashqai's many qualities, including performance and reliability.
Nissan Qashqai Success
"The Nissan Qashqai has created an entirely new 'crossover' sector and prompted other manufacturers to follow by marrying the practicality of a people carrier with the looks of a quality 4x4," they said.
"By achieving this in a package that also offers economy, handling, strong build quality and reliability the Qashqai has become the perfect used car for our time."
The model could therefore prove to be a good investment for anyone after a vehicle unlikely to breakdown, but if any problems do occur they may be able to find low cost used car parts for sale to replace faulty components.
Since launching in 2007, the Qashqai has become atop-selling mainstream model, rivalling conventional family hatchbacks, said CAP.
