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 138bhp 1.3-litre petrol engine really impresses. The Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq have more room and are better to drive, but the Qashqai should still make it onto your shortlist.get the best price
Tekna+ comes with luxurious quilted nappa leather seats, memory recall for the driver's seat and power adjustment for the passenger's seat, but it makes the Qashqai extremely expensive, placing it against premium rivals with which it can’t realistically compete.
Engine: 1.3 DiG-T
We reckon the entry-level 138bhp 1.3-litre petrol engine is the best choice for most buyers. Outright acceleration is brisk enough, but it is this engine’s flexibility – the ease with which you can build speed from low revs in any given gear – that really impresses. It's also impressively refined, but available only with a manual gearbox.
