The Nissan Qashqai remains a strong contender in the family SUV class but doesn’t quite match the all-round package offered by the Kia Sportage and Skoda Karoq. We think you’re best off sticking with the mid-spec N-Connecta trim and the DIG-T 140 engine because it gives the best mix of equipment and value for money.

You’ll be seriously pampered if you go for range-topping Tekna+ trim, thanks to quilted leather seats that have a massaging function for those sitting in the front. It also has 20in alloy wheels, memory recall settings for the electrically operated front seats and a 10-speaker BOSE stereo, but it's too expensive for us to recommend.

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.
