The popular model scooped up a category award at the Caravan and Motorhome Club Towcar of the Year Awards 2022. The new Qashqai Tekna+ Xtronic version was named the overall winner in the 1,300-1,400kg category after being praised as a “good all-rounder” for caravans. 

The judges said the model “does everything well” and would make a “sound purchase”.

Andrew Humberstone, Managing Director of Nissan Motors GB said the car would be great for those who needed “accomplished towing capability”.

He also praised the new Qashqai for scooping the award just months after launch.

He said: “Designed, engineered and built in the UK, the Qashqai has rewarded millions of customers with desirable, dependable and practical mobility.

“It supports a huge variety of lifestyle demands, including those who need accomplished towing capability.

“We are delighted that the all-new Nissan Qashqai has already been recognised in the prestigious Towcar of the Year Awards, just a few short months since the car went on sale.”

Each car was put through its paces at the Millbrook Proving ground near Bedford.

The Club’s scrutiny team thoroughly checked each vehicle before handing it over to the driving judges.
