What Car? says...
It’s easy to forget that the Nissan Qashqai started the trend for mainstream family SUVs. In fact – hard as it is to believe now – it was seen as something of a gamble when it was first introduced.
Fortunately for Nissan, the combination of an elevated driving position, stylish, rugged looks and down-to-earth running costs made the Qashqai a huge hit.
A full hybrid e-Power version will be joining the range in the not-too-distant future. This still features a petrol engine, but it doesn't drive the wheels; instead, it powers a generator, and the electricity produced is sent to an electric motor that propels the car along.
So, how does the Nissan Qashqai compare with its key rivals in all the important areas, and which version should you buy? Well, this detailed 16-point review will tell you all you need to know, from what it's like to drive to how much it will cost to run.
And remember, whichever make and model of vehicle you end up deciding to buy, make sure you check out the discounts available through the free What Car? New Car Buying service. You could save big time on most family SUVs and find lots of Nissan Qashqai deals.
