It's hard to believe that until the Nissan Qashqai broke the mould to create a new genre that we did not have crossover vehicles. Launched in 2007, its unusual name and design instantly attracted attention for practicality and low running costs.
In many ways the Qashqai is still the best car in its segment and it offers high comfort levels and is a great all-rounder for many owners. Other vehicle manufacturers have brought out crossover vehicles that offer a strong challenge to the Qashqai but the original still has a lot to offer.
There's a range of four engines, two petrol and two diesel, designed to meet a variety of needs with the excellent 1.6 litre diesel unit being a strong a performer on long journeys and motorway driving. Opt for the 1.5 litre diesel unit and drivers will enjoy fuel economy of around 70 mpg.
Behind the wheel, the Qashqai is a great vehicle to drive with the excellent suspension providing an enjoyable and comfortable driving experience.
There's lots of space in the cabin and a lots of equipment to help underline this first-rate offering. Standard equipment for the Qashqai includes all-electric windows, cruise control, 5-inch touchscreen, air con and a height adjustable driver's seat.
The vehicle is also designed to be a safe car and a reliable one too. The Qashqai also utilises a range of safety features including around the view monitor, intelligent parking assist, forward emergency braking and blind spot warning among the items fitted.
The driver’s position is high and offers an excellent view and it's a quiet car on long journeys.
The new Qashqai model has sharper lines and is an eye-catching vehicle and the options list is also very impressive with panoramic glass sunroof, ambient interior lighting, Zero Gravity inspired seats and a heated front windscreen among the list.
Essentially, the Qashqai is a well-built, spacious and practical car with a lot to offer a wide range of potential drivers
