Engines

1.6 dCi
The more powerful diesel engine brings stronger performance than the 1.5, but it’s neither as refined nor as efficient. This is the only engine that’s available with four-wheel drive (all others come with front-wheel drive) and is the only diesel that comes with the option of an automatic gearbox. The Xtronic automatic ’box is a CVT rather than a traditional auto, but it works well enough to be a viable choice if you really don’t want a manual.
Our pick
1.5 dCi
This diesel is our pick of the engine range. It’s gutsy enough from low revs so, while it never provides quick acceleration, you can make relaxed progress without having to work it too hard. It’s also very refined and very efficient; CO2 emissions of less than 100g/km make it appealing for company car drivers, while our tested real-world combined fuel economy of 51.9mpg should appeal to all.
1.6 DiG-T
This is by far the most powerful engine in the Qashqai range. Performance is brisk at medium and high revs, but it doesn’t feel particularly gutsy at low ones. It also doesn’t really suit the Qashqai’s easy-going nature and is the least efficient engine in the range.
1.2 DiG-T
The entry-level engine is a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol. It needs to be worked hard to make swift progress out of town, but it has enough performance for urban use. If you don’t do many miles a year, it’s definitely worth considering. It’s available with a six-speed manual or a CVT automatic gearbox.
