New figures released by Nissan show that last year was it most successful ever for European sales, with the UK continuing to be its most important market.

Nissan sold 735,725 vehicles last year, with 176,770 of those sales coming here in the UK.

Sales were bolstered the arrival of the new Micra and Navara models, which joined the X-Trail, Juke, and Qashqai in a strong Nissan line up. The UK-built Qashqai sold over 270,000 units in Europe last year, retaining its position as a market leader.

Early indications are that Nissan’s sales uptrend is continuing. The brand sold 107,592 vehicles in March 2017, an increase of 10% on the same month last year.
