The Nissan Qashqai is designed to offer plenty of space and comfort to both drivers and passengers – and that’s exactly what Tim Gow is looking for in a new car.

The Yorkshire resident, who currently drives a Honda CR-V, is in the market for a new car, and has considered everything from small SUVs to estates. While he’d never previously driven a Nissan he does have several friends who drive them, and was eager to give the Qashqai a try.

So when Nissan offered What Car? readers the chance to try a Qashqai for an extended seven-day test drive, Tim was quick to volunteer. What Car? gave him an iPad to record his honest views of the machine for a diary. The resulting video reflects his opinions.

What did Tim think? β€œThe space inside the car was pretty good,” he said. β€œOn a fast motorway run the car was very stable, and it’s not afraid of corners, even when the boot is full of books.

β€œIt would absolutely fit into our lives,” he added. β€œYou can get a lot of stuff in it, my dog likes it, and it doesn’t cost the earth to run.”
