2019 Nissan Qashqai front three-quarter driving

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: Acenta Premium

Acenta Premium trim is well worth considering, because it adds 17in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, power-folding door mirrors, a height-adjustable passenger seat, lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, high-beam assist and various infotainment upgrades including a 7.0in touchscreen with 3D mapping and smartphone mirroring. You also get other useful aids, such as front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camers. All things considered, this is our favourite trim.

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.
