The final incarnation of the previous Primera shape offers a lot for the used buyer. More stylish bodies, a better ride and fine engineering including a Hypertronic sequential gearbox option.

3 out of 5

The final incarnation of the previous Primera shape offers a lot for the used buyer. More stylish bodies, a better ride and fine engineering including a Hypertronic sequential gearbox option. And because it's often passed over because it doesn't have the sparkling image of its competitors, it's a real used bargain.

What owners say...

 The boot, even for a saloon car is capacious, especially when the rear seats (which don't fold completely flat) but do fold down to give more than enough room.

 Its a Saloon, which are not as practical as the hatch or estate, but boot is large and seats still fold down so will hold a fair amount.

 Its the saloon model so not all that practical, but a nicer shape than the Hatchback.
