Growth in the UK motor sector is expected to reach double figures this year according to KPMG. This will be music to the ears of Nissan, as its UK built, new Qashqai makes claims to be an ideal company car as well as fulfilling the roll of family car
The new Qashqai has been designed to not only be easier on the eye, but be cheaper to run as Nissan have reduced running costs of the new model. Nissan/Renault have some mean and clean diesels across their ranges and the new 1.5 diesel is one of the best. At 99 g/km CO2 it has a BIK banding of just 14% in years 13/14 and has a zero charge road tax. The Acenta Premium, a model rippling with spec, the P11D will £18,864, which equals £53 per month company car tax is you pay basic tax or £105 if you pay 40%.
Over a three year lease, the new, efficient Qashqai is reckoned to save 15% over the outgoing model, with improved residuals as Nissan has reduced supply to the Motability market and reduced servicing costs. The new model is also more fuel efficient, a major cost of any vehicle on a high mileage lease
