Pros & cons


Excellent to drive, reliable, user-friendly.


Uninspiring image.

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.
