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 140 trim, because it gives the best mix of equipment and value for money.

Worth considering if you want extra luxuries, such as a gesture-controlled electric tailgate, a panoramic sunroof, 19in alloy wheels, a heated steering wheel, a heated windscreen, heated front seats, electric front seats, adaptive LED headlights, wireless phone charging and a head-up display. We reckon cheaper N-Connecta trim represents better value for money, though.

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.
