The Nissan Qashqai is a strong contender in the family SUV class, although it doesn't quite beat the all-round package offered by the Skoda Karoq and Kia Sportage. We reckon the middle of the range N-Connecta 140 trim is where the best value lies because the cheaper trims (especially Visia) are stingily equipped and range-topping models are rather pricey.

The most popular trim level choice is N-Connecta, and we reckon it’s the best bet. On top of everything that comes with Acenta Premium, you get a larger 12.3in touchscreen infotainment system, in-built sat-nav, four USB sockets, a 12.3in digital instrument display, 18in alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, a 360-degree parking camera, ambient interior lighting, rear map pockets and privacy glass.

You won’t exactly be thrown back in your seat when you accelerate hard, especially at low revs, but performance is respectable enough with 0-62mph in 9.5sec. The DIG-T 158 will get you up to motorway speeds without bother and gives you enough oomph to safely overtake slower cars and cyclists on smaller roads. Officially it'll average around 44mpg and, on test, we averaged 37mpg.
