Review

Although the Nissan Qashqai is no longer our favourite family SUV, it remains a sound proposition. If you choose wisely it's one of the more comfortable cars in the class, and the 1.3 DIG-T 140 petrol engine also impresses. The Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq are roomier and better to drive, though.

get the best price

Special edition N-Tec trim is all about cosmetics, featuring black 19in alloy wheels, a sporty body kit and black roof rails. We’d advise strongly against spending the extra and stick with the mid-range options. 

You’ll need to got for the DiG-T 160 if you want a petrol engine and need an automatic gearbox. Otherwise, it makes little sense. Save yourself some cash and go for the DIG-T 140.
