Review

The latest 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. We reckon the middle of the range is where the best value lies, because the cheaper trims (especially Visia) are stingily equipped and range-topping models are rather pricey.

This launch trim comes well equipped and adds features such as a panoramic sunroof, wireless phone charging, adaptive LED headlights and a head-up display.

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.
