The most popular videos on What Car?’s YouTube channel over the last month

Top 10 most popular videos on What Car’s YouTube channel

Views this month were mainly driven by the launch of the new third-generation Nissan Qashqai family SUV. Previous versions have sold in enormous numbers, so it’s no surprise that our first drive of the latest version has been our most-watched video in the past month.

We did, though, expect it to perform even better than it has. Indeed, on other channels Qashqai reviews haven’t quite reached the ‘viral’ levels that some new cars have this year, suggesting overall interest in the car has been muted. One reason for this could be that the Qashqai is launching without a hybrid or electric version. As has long been the case with our video content; electrification almost guarantees greater levels of interest.

But the Genesis GV80, being our third most popular video of the month behind the electric Kia EV6 reveal, shows that the right new metal still draws interest regardless of how it is powered. It was interesting to see this car perform so well, though, given that Genesis is a relatively unknown brand – particularly here in the UK.
