Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Nissan Qashqai hatchback?

Unlike the first generation of Qashqai, the model reviewed here isn’t available as a +2 seven seater. If that’s what you’re after, you’ll need to look at a Nissan X-Trail instead.

Or if you prefer to buy a used car with the reassurance of a long manufacturer warranty, the Kia Sportage is an alternative to the Qashqai. It’s not as good to drive as the Nissan, but is spacious and well equipped, and comes with a seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty from new. The Hyundai Tucson – with its five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty – is also worth considering for the same reason, although with both of these warranties, it’s worth making sure you’re happy with what’s covered in the later years, as cover can reduce.
