The Nissan Qashqai is the car that started the trend for mainstream family SUVs and, as hard as it is to believe now, it was seen as something of a gamble when it was first introduced in 2007.

Back then, conventional hatchbacks still ruled the sales charts, and while Nissan's own offering, the Almera, was one of the weaker contenders, many people had their doubts about the decision to replace it with the high-riding Qashqai.

Fortunately for Nissan, that elevated driving position, combined with stylish looks, made the Qashqai a huge hit and, consequently, a car that every manufacturer wanted to copy; you can read our review of the original Qashqai here.

This second-generation model builds on the ground-breaking brilliance of its predecessor, and for 2019 it has gained a range of upgraded engines. However, it still faces stiff competition from accomplished rivals that have joined the fray, such as the Peugeot 3008, Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq.

How does it compare with these cars and which version of the Qashqai should you buy? Read on for everything you need to know, and then head over to our New Car Buying page, where you can get the best deals going for a new family SUV.
