Review

The latest Qashqai is a strong contender in the family SUV class. 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.

get the best price

We can certainly see why you’d be tempted by N-Connecta, which adds privacy glass, bigger 18in wheels and keyless entry to everything you get with Acenta Premium. You get more safety kit, too, including blind spot warning and a rear cross traffic alert, plus a 360-deg camera system.

We reckon this entry-level 138bhp petrol engine is the best choice for most buyers. Outright acceleration is brisk enough, but it's this engine’s flexibility – the ease with which you can build speed from low revs in any given gear – that really impresses.
