Happy 10th Birthday to the Qashqai!

Nissan Qashqai – the world’s first crossover  and an Autobritannia.net firm favourite turns 10 this year in 2017 and the company along with its dealers plan to celebrate with style.


Where it all began – the 2007 Nissan Qashqai



It is exactly 10 years since the Nissan Qashqai crossover first went on sale, and the brand is planning to celebrate in style. Customer events and media activities will be taking place across Europe to mark the occasion.

Nissan is the first brand to reach the 10-year milestone for one simple reason – the Qashqai is the model which pioneered the crossover segment as the automotive industry and car-buying consumers know it today.

Ahead of the official start of the anniversary celebrations, Nissan has released a short video which traces the car’s decade in the spotlight.
