Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Nissan Qashqai+2 hatchback?

Because the Qashqai was essentially the first of its breed, it always had a limited number of direct rivals, and that goes double for the Qashqai+2 because no other compact SUV of the time had seven seats.

You could go for a Mitsubishi Outlander (or the all-but-identical Peugeot 4007 or Citroen C-Crosser) which has the SUV styling and seven seats, but it's bigger, heavier and less engaging to drive than a Qashqai.

Overview

The Nissan Qashqai was a game-changer for the entire car industry, but while the +2 version is more practical, it’s no substitute for an MPV.

  • Spacious
  • Good looking
  • Enjoyable to drive
  • Decent standard equipment
  • Interior feels a bit cheap
  • Third row seats very tight on space
