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 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.

Trim: Visia

This entry-level trim gets most essentials, including air conditioning, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, remote central locking, four electric windows and cruise control. If you can, it’s worth going up to Acenta Premium at least for a few more luxuries, such as alloy wheels instead of hubcaps.

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.
