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 138bhp 1.3-litre petrol engine really impresses. The Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq have more room and are better to drive, but the Qashqai should still make it onto your shortlist.

Trim: Tekna

Tekna brings part-leather (heated front) seats, with power adjustment on the driver's side, LED headlights, a self-parking system, a heated windscreen, a BOSE sound system and adaptive cruise control. It’s really expensive, though, and comes with 19in wheels that ruin ride comfort.

Engine: 1.3 DiG-T 160

There’s also a 158bhp version of essentially the same 1.3-litre petrol. It’s not overtly stronger for day-to-day use to be honest, so given how strong the lower-power motor is and the not-insignificant price premium, it hardly seems worth it. That is unless you tow a caravan, where the extra oomph could prove useful, or you want the option of an automatic gearbox, which the 138bhp engine doesn’t have. It's a dual-clutch auto 'box that's impressively responsive, if a little jerky in stop-start traffic.
