The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders have released figures showing the Nissan has seen a 17.8 per cent increase in passenger sales compared to the same period in 2010.

Nissan's overall market share was 5.6 per cent, while the share of the retail market was 6.9 per cent.

Nissan placed in fifth position for passenger cars in the UK for September 2011, 10 registrations short of Audi in fourth place. 18,573 Nissan models were registered in September, with the Nissan QASHQAI (6068 units) and the Juke (4475 units) proving to be the most popular. The Nissan Micra placed in third, with the 3540 sales.

Nissan GB's managing director Jim Wright said: "There's no doubt that the market is tough out there at the moment. But Nissan is making cars that people want to buy and there is still demand out there for good product."

It is expected that demand for the Nissan QASHQAI, Juke and Micra will increase over the next few months as more efficient models will become available.

Revisions to the Nissan Juke have seen fuel savings and the new DIG-S version of the Nissan Micra benefits from highly-advanced technology, creating one of the most fuel efficient petrol engines available.

The Nissan QASHQAI has also benefited from a new 1.6 litre diesel engine, with stop-start and CO2 emissions of 119g/km.
