Built in Britain, the Qashqai still offers adventurous all-terrain looks, yet costs little more than a family hatchback to run. Its angular style is more distinctive than the earlier, more curvaceous version and its material quality has improved, too. In fact, it's not far off the high standards set by the Skoda Kodiaq and SEAT Ateca – two cars conceived specifically to fight the Qashqai.
The Qashqai offers a high driving position for a commanding view in city traffic. It feels spacious, too, with a modern, versatile interior – although rear legroom is a little tight. The boot is easy to access through a wide-opening tailgate, with a usefully square shape and decent 430-litre capacity. The first-generation Qashqai came in a seven-seat Qashqai+2 version, but this isn’t offered in the current model.
