Review

Although the Nissan Qashqai is no longer our favourite family SUV, it remains a sound proposition. If you choose wisely it's one of the more comfortable cars in the class, and the 1.3 DIG-T 140 petrol engine also impresses. The Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq are roomier and better to drive, though.

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.
