    My car

    I have owned this car for three weeks only... but first impressions are mixed. Its smooth to drive, though 2nd to 3rd gear is clunky. There isnt much overtaking power even with a turbo. The mpg is very poor and I mean poor. 28mpg is the top that I can get. Admittedly I have only used it for running around town and a couple of short motorway journeys, but I was lead to believe by the majority of reviews that I had read prior to purchasing this car that it would be way above this for urban driving. The interior is lovely, not much road noise and its comfortable. Sat Nav is not impressive however, I sold my tomtom thinking I wouldn't need it, I wish I hadn't. It takes you all over the place and not the quickest route either. Parking sensors are excellent, even though I am still dubious, but I don't think there is any need to be. The stop start function has yet to make an appearance, but this is because I don't put my car in neutral at traffic lights? I honestly don't know. This car looks good and drives nicely around town, motorway its nippy but don't expect any miracles and certainly don't expect to be any better off in the bank by changing to this car due to the amount of fuel it uses :/

    My car

    This is an easy car to drive, not for boy racers but has enough power for normal driving. The boot is large and the driving position good with plenty of adjustment. The 360 degree cameras make parking and maneuvering a joy, lining up with the parking bay is so easy. The assisted parking is not as quick or accurate as doing it yourself using the cameras and sensors. I have only had this car for 4 months and 6400 miles so far, no reliability problems. The sat nav works but is not the most intuitive to use. I prefer driving this to the Mark 1 Kuga that it replaced and as I have the Tekna, I still have the heated front windscreen. This car is smaller externally than the Kuga which is a plus point for me. I get 46.6 mpg averaged over the last 3 months with a mixture of town and motorway driving although the car says 49.9 Not had a lot of chance to use it in the snow so far this year but it has driven easily when I have, I have winter tyres fitted as well as the 4WD

    My car

    I traded in a two year old BMW 3 Series for the Qashqai and have been delighted with the change. The Qashqai is practical, refined, quiet and comfortable and I really like the elevated driving position.

    The Qashqai is slower on paper than my 3 Series was to 60 mph and I had reconciled myself to having to put up with making slower progress. The Qashqai seems to deliver power just when it is most needed though and it is way more lively to drive than I expected. The BMW might be better for zipping around country lanes but the Qashqai is great for general driving.

    I have read some reviews where road noise is cited as an issue. That's not the case with my car, and I can only think that different wheels and tyres are to blame.

    Inside, the Qashqai is nicely finished and well equipped and the sat nav and entertainment system works really well. I was very pleased to find that I can stream and control music over Bluetooth.

    All in all, I can see why the Qashqai has won so many awards - it is a great piece of design work that ticks so many boxes for me.

    My car

    I swapped my Honda CRV for the Quashqai as it is really economical and I have just got back from a 20 mile drive averaging 62mpg. It is much quieter and more comfortable although the controls are pretty complcated. I am 74 and still do 30,000 miles a year so I will save hugely on fuel costs. I do think the boot is on the small side and I would like a spare tyre but at least I can hear someone speak at last!
