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.
The trimSee full equipment
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.
