The Nissan Qashqai remains a strong contender in the family SUV class but doesn’t quite match the all-round package offered by the Kia Sportage and Skoda Karoq. We think you’re best off sticking with the mid-spec N-Connecta trim and the DIG-T 140 engine because it gives the best mix of equipment and value for money.

Worth considering if you want extra luxuries, such as a gesture-controlled electric tailgate, a panoramic sunroof, 19in alloy wheels, a heated steering wheel, a heated windscreen, heated front seats, electric front seats, adaptive LED headlights, wireless phone charging and a head-up display. We reckon cheaper N-Connecta trim represents better value for money, though.

Despite being the most powerful and fastest version of the Qashqai, e-Power still manages to be the most efficient. That’s because, while it has a 1.5-litre petrol engine under its bonnet, it’s only used to charge a battery which, In turn, distributes the power to the wheels through an electric motor. It’s an interesting system and is aimed at those that want an EV but still want to fill up at the green pump.
