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 148bhp 1.7-litre diesel needs working harder than the larger 2.0-litre 148bhp engine in the Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq, but still feels much punchier than the 1.5-litre diesel also offered in the Qashqai. Worth considering if you must have a Qashqai and you plan on towing.
