What's the used Nissan Primera estate like?

The Nissan Primera estate is the pair of 'sensible' school shoes your mum forced you to wear when you were a kid. It's never going to turn heads but it's a practical, cheap family estate that you can depend on to give years of reliable service. It's a pretty decent drive, too.

In fact, it's more sporty than many sports saloons on a twisty road, although the pay-off is a firm ride, especially on motorways, where it can get tiresome. Go for the 1.8 or 2.0 petrol engine and you'll get a sweet-revving motor with respectable performance and quiet cruising ability.

You get plenty of space in the front and rear seats, a soundly built cabin, a good driving position and an uncluttered, well-shaped load bay. Avoid the entry-level trim and it's nicely stacked with kit, too.
