Nissan Qashqai is one of the biggest selling cars in the UK with good reason. It is a sensibly sized vehicle that benefits from good handling and ride quality. A good alternative to the Freelander when buying used. As we think it is more reliable. All models are reasonably fuel efficient, stick with the two wheel drive if fuel efficiency is your priority. Being a Nissan it is very reliable and will go on and on with regular servicing. For those people that regard ride as an important factor in the way a car drives, the Quashqai soaks up the bad quality british roads. Its all well and good buying a car with dynamic handling, but as the quality of our roads seems to deterioate year after year. The quality of ride becomes more important, while cars with big wheels and low profile tyres look cool, you don’t get the quality of ride generally and the neither the tyres or wheels stand up to the punishment of some poor quality roads.
The interior of the Nissan Qashqai is well finished. It is sensible and will stand up to the sometimes brutal treatment of a young family. There is a good level of interior comfort and space. Boot space is adequate. The Qashqai comes with a good level of standard equipment. It is worth shopping around, as most dealers have a special offer or two.
Good value new and with resale values that hold up well, the Qashqai is a good choice of car for those looking to maximize their spend. There is a new model due out in 2014, so look out for deals on the current model.
Ownership of the Nissan Qashqai should be fairly hassle free, Nissan’s are normally incredibly reliable.
