LONDON – Feb 7, 2013: Nissan is building on its record-breaking 2012 with an impressive start to 2013. The British-built Qashqai and Juke are now more popular than ever, giving Nissan two spots in the top 10 sellers list.

Figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show the ground-breaking Qashqai crossover was the UK’s fifth bestselling car in January 2013 – its highest chart position to date.

Meanwhile, the striking Juke underlined its growing popularity with buyers by breaking into the top 10 for the first time.

The figures come just weeks after official SMMT statistics showed the carmaker’s overall sales rocketed by 9.9% in 2012, helping it to a record 5.2% share of the UK’s new car market.

Jim Wright, Managing Director of Nissan GB, said: “Our innovative and exciting products continue to connect with British motorists and we are making the kinds of vehicles they really want to drive.

“The Qashqai has been a remarkable vehicle for us and continues to defy industry convention by becoming more popular with each passing year.

“Juke has also been a phenomenally successful model and appears to be following the trend set by its big brother. If anything, Juke is performing even more impressively than Qashqai was at the same period in its life. The next year will see the arrival of more innovative and exciting product from Nissan, so I’m certain more records will fall.”
