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

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.

This 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 to the 1.7-litre diesel.
