2019 Nissan Qashqai front three-quarter driving

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 still lives up to its pioneering reputation.

Trim: Acenta Premium

Acenta Premium trim is well worth considering, because it adds 17in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, power-folding door mirrors, a height-adjustable passenger seat, lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, high-beam assist and various infotainment upgrades including a 7.0in touchscreen with 3D mapping and smartphone mirroring. You also get other useful aids, such as front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camers. All things considered, this is our favourite trim.

Engine: 1.5 dCi 115

The 113bhp 1.5-litre diesel is worth a look if you’re a high-mileage driver. It isn’t particularly quick in terms of outright acceleration, but it delivers its power smoothly and is pretty gutsy from low revs, so never feels frustratingly tardy. It will also prove the most frugal of the Qashqai's engines. If you need more shove or four-wheel drive, look out for the 1.7-litre diesel arriving in 2019.
