What used Nissan Qashqai+2 hatchback will I get for my budget?
With the huge demand for new Qashqais, it should come as no surprise that used versions are still highly sought after, and this is keeping values high. The cheapest Qashqai+2 you are likely to find will still set you back more than £4000, and prices of more than £5000 are not uncommon.
The Qashqai was facelifted in 2010, gaining narrower, more angled headlamps and a more inset front grille, and diesel examples of these cars still nudge £10,000 if they are in exceptional condition and come with a full Nissan service history. Petrols are cheaper, but could be harder to sell on later.
How much does it cost to run a Nissan Qashqai+2 hatchback?
The Qashqai+2 is a very frugal car when fitted with Nissan’s 1.5 dCi diesel engine; you can expect to average better than 45mpg in daily driving.
Services are required annually or every 12,000 miles, but the Qashqai+2 can be very hard on its tyres, especially on the optional 18in alloy wheels. Another bugbear is that it’s almost impossible to replace a blown bulb at home, so it usually requires a visit to the dealership, costing time and money.
