Target Price team says:
The Nissan Qashqai is one of the quietest and classiest cars of its kind, as well as one of the most practical and best to drive. Yes, it’s more expensive than some rivals, but it's worth the extra – especially when you consider how well it should hold on to its value.
Cheapest are the 1.2-litre petrol models. They’re fine for driving around town, although on faster roads you have to rev the engine hard to keep up with traffic.
The 1.5-litre diesels are our favourite: the engine is smooth and quiet, and gutsy enough from low revs, while low CO2 emissions help keep tax bills low.
Of the trim levels, we reckon N-tec makes the most sense; you get a lot of kit without spending the sort of money that would buy you a larger SUV, such as the Mazda CX-5.
