Used test: Nissan Qashqai vs Skoda Karoq verdict

Buy either of these family SUVs at four years old and you'll save yourself more than £10,000, but which is the better all-rounder? We have the answer...

Used Nissan Qashqai vs Skoda Karoq

Our verdict

The Nissan Qashqai is not without its charms, being fairly spacious and decent to drive. Buy one and you'll be happy with it in everyday use, especially if you saved even more money by seeking one out in a lower trim level, and on smaller wheels. Overall, though, it's rather shown up by the excellent Skoda Karoq. 

It’s great to drive, has the better infotainment system and the classier interior. It’s also impressively practical, cheaper to run and more reliable than the Qashqai. The Karoq has proven its slightly higher price to be more than justifiable and, in conclusion, it wins this test.
