    My car

    This car has great looks, is well built, has plenty of space, and is highly specified.

    It's a truly British car.

    I have now had the car for eight weeks and have done 1200 miles, and I am happy in every respect.

    My car

    Tried this at the dealer Holden Stoke and was very impressed with the ride, it felt very taught in the bends and rode bumps well, 2L petrol was responsive and had plenty of poke and quiet, it felt refined. The cabin felt very comfortable and I liked the feeling every thing being to hand and it felt right, the dash looks very smart and functional, and the glass roof made it very light and airy, I never use my sun roof much or open the blind but I would in the Qashqai. Seats were very supportive and comfortable over a reasonable period, there were several nice comfort points like the way the area around the gear change is raised and has a good area for when you need to stop and have a drink or a bit to eat, same in the rear with plenty of space in the doors. The rear was comfortable for me and the seats were comfortable and supportive, though not as much room as some of the competition, but nicely laid out. Back in the front there was plenty of head room Im 5-10 and the seat had lots of adjustment. I liked the fact you sit reasonably high and have the feel of a family saloon in fact it is not far off my Xtrail. 1.5 was lacking in sparkle and bit louder but not intrusive, good for day to day use, economical, I would go for the bigger engine. I have satnav on my Xtrail and have found that I updateing it cost price of a reasonable satnav like TomTom and there are no Gatso warnings, save the money and go for a higher spec.

    My car

    I test-drove the new Nissan Qashqai last Sunday, and and is a great car. The car itself is gorgeous and definitely gets full marks for that.

    The 4x4 styling but hatchback fuel costs and practicality. I prefer diesel, but the 2.0 petrol was the only taxed one, so I could go without the salesman. Driving it felt good, but I felt so much lower than I do in my 2004 Renault Scenic. I don't think I will be getting this car, because of the lack of headroom and because the kids felt quite squashed against the middle car seat, which is not experienced in the Scenic.

    Next, when I test-drove the 1.5 diesel, it felt nippy and coped better than I presumed, as I have the same engine in my Scenic, but the Qashqai looks like a heavier car. Still the space let itself down.

    I would say it's the replacement more for the Almera, rather than the Primera and the Almera Tino as well. As a small family hatchback, it works well. As a large family, MPV, or 4x4, I don't think so.

    My car

    I'm looking to replace my company car this spring and thought I'd check out the new Nissan.

    I have to say the build quality and overall feel of the car was very high indeed. My local dealer let me take one out and although it was only a 1.5 diesel, it went just as quick as you'll need for town and motorway use. I will be doing 30-40,000 miles a year so need something comfy and fairly nippy.

    There's loads of legroom in the front and as you sit high up it gives the feeling of a 4x4 without the high fuel and tax bills. My one and only concern was the headroom. I'm 6ft 2in tall and found it a little tight in the front and back. It's definitely on my short list! It's also made in the UK! Well done Nissan (Sunderland)!
