What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The Primera is a reliable, well-equipped and spacious estate car

Against It has virtually zero image and bland styling

Verdict It's a sensible budget buy for any family

Go for… 2.0 petrol in SE/Sport

Avoid… 1.6 petrol and 2.0 TD

Nissan Primera Estate
  • 1. The Primera estate won't turn heads, but it’s cheap and has a practical, uncluttered loadbay
  • 2. The 2.0 petrol is the one to go for. It has all the muscle you need, but doesn't drink too much fuel
  • 3. Listen out for suspension clonks and avoid cars that pull to one side while driving
  • 4. Climate control can be expensive to fix, so avoid any car where it doesn't blow hot and cold
  • 5. Avoid E trim. S models are okay, but stretch to SE if you can
