Which used Nissan Qashqai+2 hatchback should I buy?
You can choose from 1.5-, 1.6- and 2.0-litre diesel engines or 1.6- and 2.0-litre petrols. Of these the 1.6 petrol is probably best avoided; although it’s reasonably powerful, it leaves the Qashqai+2 feeling a bit underpowered and becomes thirsty.
It’s a similar story with the 2.0-litre petrol, although it does cope with the weight better than the 1.6.
The 1.5 diesel is the most popular Qashqai engine, and with good reason. It has decent refinement, good economy and emissions, and sufficient performance. It’s been used across a broad swathe of Renault and Nissan products and has proved largely reliable, too.
All models came well equipped and the Qashqai+2 was one of the first cars to feature a standard Bluetooth phone connection.
