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.

Visia trim is the cheapest option but it's not exceptionally well equipped. It comes with LED headlights, rear parking sensors, manual air conditioning, 17in alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, a four-speaker stereo and one USB socket. It does come with lots of safety kit, including automatic emergency braking, a driver tiredness alert, blind-spot monitoring, traffic sign recognition and e-Call emergency response. If you can, jump up a grade to get a better infotainment system and more features.

This is our favourite Qashqai engine because it’s cheaper than the DIG-T 158 and has almost as much low-rev pull, so it's not that much slower (0-62mph takes a respectable 10.2sec). Officially, it averages around 44mpg.
