    Nissan X-Trail declared the Family Car of the Year at News UK Motoring Awards

    We're proud to announce that the Nissan X-Trail e-POWER has won Family Car of the Year at The Motor Awards 2023. This also comes as Nissan introduced the Nissan "Hyper" series of EV Concept vehicles.

We're proud to announce that the Nissan X-Trail e-POWER has won Family Car of the Year at The Motor Awards 2023. This recognition was accredited by The Sun, The Sunday Times and on Thursday 5th of October 2023. 

Now in its 4th generation, X-Trail continues to represent ground breaking technology and adventure and has sold more than 7.8 million units globally since its introduction in 2001.

The Nissan X-Trail is Nissan's electrified family adventure vehicle which joined the line up in 2022 and has been excitedly received since. With 85 degree rear opening doors, in built rear sunshades, USB ports in the second row, up to 585L of boot space and plenty of clever storage options, Nissan X-Trail is an excellent option for families. 


The Sun Motors Editor Rob Gill said: "The X-Trail has all the goodness of a Qashqai - our 2021 Car of the Year - but with the addition of seven seats and 4WD.

"Go for the clever e-POWER petrol hybrid and it's like driving an EV - quiet, smooth and responsive - minus the hassle of having to stop and recharge. If your family outgrows a Qashqai, or you live in the green bits of Britain, you'll want an X-Trail in your life"


Nic Thomas, Nissan Marketing Director commented: "X-Trail is a key part of the Nissan line up and it means a lot to be selected for this award by some of the UK's most popular publications and their motoring experts.

Nissan defined the crossover segment with the introduction of Qashqai, and we are thrilled to see Nissan crossovers continuing to be at the forefront of the industry paving the way for new technologies and driving experiences. X-Trail is the biggest car in our line up the perfect choice for families looking for a car that is as comfortable off road as it is driving through cities."

To introduce Nissan's new generation of electrification, a series of innovative “hyper" EV concept vehicles has been developed to reinforce the brand's commitment to empowering society for the future of mobility. 
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Nissan Design Europe (NDE) being located in London, Makoto Uchida, Nissan's President and Chief Executive Officer, visited NDE to unveil an all-new sporty urban electric concept car called Nissan Concept 20-23.

This concept car is one of a series of "hyper" EV concept vehicles. Some other models unveiled since include: Nissan Hyper Urban, Nissan Hyper Adventure, Nissan Hyper Tourer, Nissan Hyper Punk and the Hyper Force, all pictured below. 

With the new Concept 20:23 celebrating two decades of bold, pioneering automotive design leadership in London, across Europe and beyond, it will be exciting to see what the next 20 years hold as the team at Nissan Design Europe embraces the move to electrification and autonomous drive technology.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
