Although the Nissan Qashqai is no longer our favourite Family SUV, it remains a very good proposition. If you choose wisely and keep to 17in alloy wheels, it's one of the more comfortable cars in the class (but not far off the worst with 19in wheels, so be warned), and the range of engines introduced for 2019, especially the 138bhp 1.3-litre petrol, are quiet and more than potent enough. In the main it's practical, too, although cars like the Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq have more room and the Karoq in particular, better seating flexibility that can make your life easier. Still, there's little doubt that you should have the Qashqai sat squarely on your shopping list.

We can certainly see why you’d be tempted by N-Connecta, which adds privacy glass, bigger 18in wheels and keyless entry. You get more safety kit, too, including blind spot warning and a rear cross traffic alert, plus a 360-deg camera system.

Engine:

1.3 DiG-T

We reckon the entry-level 138bhp 1.3-litre petrol engine is the best choice for most buyers. Outright acceleration is brisk enough, but it is this engine’s flexibility – the ease with which you can build speed from low revs in any given gear – that really impresses. It's also impressively refined, but available only with a manual gearbox.
