Virtual streets for virtual SUV
16 October 2006

Nissan's marketing men clearly have too much time on their hands. Nissan has just created a new website for the Quashqai SUV, and it contains little information about the car.

You might have thought that a website about a car should tell you about the car – the engines available, trim options – that sort of thing. But while www.nissan-qashqai.co.uk lets you choose (unreal-looking) exterior colours and wheels, it's more interested in letting you select the virtual environment for your virtual Qashqai.

Having chosen the colour of your car, you can select a number of different walls to park it against. You can add pigeons, graffiti and any number of US-style post boxes. And all to show just how "urban-proof" the Qashqai is. Funnily enough, there's no option to show the Qashqai with its wheels missing, the window smashed and the alarm going off.

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
