For
As you would expect for the 2014 Car of the Year, the Nissan Qashqai has lots to recommend it, including a classy, well-built cabin with plenty of room, a good driving position, a huge boot, decent handling and a smooth ride, particularly when riding speed bumps or travelling on faster roads.

Add to this a refined 1.5-litre diesel engine that delivers plenty of low-end flexibility, average fuel economy of up to 74.3mpg, with emissions of 99 g/km of CO2, and it makes the Qashqai a sensible proposition whether you are buying through a company or making a private purchase.

Finally, the Qashqai is predicted to deliver strong resale values and it has been awarded a five-star Euro NCAP rating.

Against
The Qashqai costs more than some rivals and the turbo-diesel engine does struggle for ultimate pace.

Although the suspension is supple most of the time, around town the ride can get a little jittery and you can also find that the thick front and rear pillars restrict visibility.

Should I add any options?
Visia models come with air-conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels, stability control, Bluetooth and cruise control as standard.

We would recommend adding the Smart Vision Pack, which adds an anti-dazzle rear view mirror, traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning, forward emergency braking plus front and rear parking sensors for £495.
