    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!

    My car

    Has many many hidden faults, research things like cvt problems or key error that are blamed on things like riding clutch etc. Nissan UK will not accept or adress massive failings and forums now full of unhappy cistomers. Nissan blatantly from day 1 advertise there Nissan Conect when in reality there are 2 apps a Google and Facebook, all the early Qashqais were delivered not to spec and Nissan just pointed out they have right to change specs and after a 5 month wait nearly everyone accepted things but the error messages, failing gearbox not to mention cheap rattly interiors make us annoyed. As one of the 1st in country to order one of these cars before they were launched how did whatcar declare this car of the year a month before it was launched to public? I myself read the magazine at launch day and whatcar loved car so much I bought the car and im horrified I ask Whatcar visit Qashqai forums and at least listen to its readers and maybe either review there reccomendation or try and help those who listened to them against Nissan UK
