Nissan Qashqai buying guide

About the Nissan Qashqai

The Nissan Qashqai needs almost no introduction, because the first model helped kick off the crossover craze here in the UK. The secret to its success is the raised seating position and ride height, plus space for your family and their knick-knacks – along with its comfortable ride, sharp design and frugal engines. The fact that it’s great value for money – especially as a used car – and is designed, engineered and built in the UK just seals the deal.

What versions of the Nissan Qashqai are there?

Trim levels for 2017-2021 Qashqai models start with Visia before stepping up to Acenta and the slightly upgraded Acenta Premium. Above that is N-Connecta with some high-tech extras, and then Tekna and Tekna+, which get the kitchen-sink treatment. While trim names are mostly unchanged on the newer Qashqai, there’s a little more equipment fitted as standard.

What features does the Nissan Qashqai have?

Okay, so the Qashqai isn’t likely to win any interior design awards, but there are no surprises when you come to use it. Everything’s where you expect it and there are lots of physical buttons and controls, which are easy to use while you’re driving. The touchscreen isn’t the fastest or the most technologically advanced, but that won’t be too much of an issue if you tend to use Apple CarPlay or Android Auto for your connectivity.

Material quality is as good as it needs to be at this price point. It feels more premium inside than a Dacia Duster and some Vauxhall models, and most buyers shouldn’t have any complaints regarding the fit or finish.

Nissan’s ProPilot system is a catch-all name for its wide range of active safety features. On higher-spec cars it allows the Qashqai to almost drive itself in some situations – it’ll keep you in your lane on the motorway, stay a set distance from the car in front and brake for you if you encounter an unexpected object or person. But, to make sure you’re still paying attention, it also includes a driver alertness monitor that’ll stop you dozing off.

Nissan Qashqai engine range explained

(Most popular!) Nissan Qashqai 1.3 DiG-T petrol

The Nissan Qashqai’s 1.3-litre engine might sound small, but it’s more than capable of powering this family SUV. There are two power outputs – 140hp and 160hp – and the latter is a little brisker off-the-line without sacrificing fuel economy. Both manage around 40mpg, and are the best choice if you’re going to be doing plenty of local journeys to work or to the supermarket. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard on both engines, but the 160hp engine is also available with a automatic gearbox. The latest Qashqai models come with a ‘MH’ (mild-hybrid) version of this 1.3-litre powerplant.

Nissan Qashqai 1.5 dCi 115 diesel

Higher-mileage drivers and those wanting great fuel economy will be drawn to diesel Qashqais. The 1.5-litre Renault engine delivers 53mpg – it could save you money compared to a petrol engine and you’ll get more miles to a tank of fuel. Like the petrol, manual or automatic gearboxes can be had.

Nissan Qashqai 1.7 dCi 150 diesel

The vast majority of diesel Nissan Qashqais use the 1.5-litre engine, but a more powerful 1.7-litre unit has also been available. If you’re planning to use a Qashqai to tow a caravan or large trailer, it’s worth hunting out one of these more powerful diesels for its 2,000kg towing capacity. This engine is the only one that has been offered with four-wheel drive, too.

Nissan Qashqai e-Power hybrid

A new Nissan Qashqai e-Power hybrid engine was introduced in the latest-generation car. This promises diesel-like fuel economy and a driving experience that feels like an electric car, without ever having to plug in. The petrol engine acts as a generator for the electric motor, which drives the wheels for a smooth drive. It’s more powerful than any other Qashqai engine, too, with 190hp.

How safe is the Nissan Qashqai?

Every Nissan Qashqai sold in the UK has a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating – awarded in 2021. Its predecessor also earned a five-star rating in 2014. The scores for the latest Qashqai are exceptional – it achieved more than 90% for adult protection, child protection and for its safety features.

Is the Nissan Qashqai a good car?

The Nissan Qashqai is a really good car if you’re after a family-sized SUV. It’s spacious, reliable, safe, economical and refined. Its popularity means that used buyers have lots of choice and prices are competitive. Nissan has stepped up the interior quality of recent Qashqai models noticeably, with far more soft-touch materials and scarcely a squeak or rattle to be heard.

Your Nissan Qashqai questions answered

There have been three generations of Nissan Qashqai. All are five-seat SUVs – there’s no seven-seater Qashqai any more, but the Nissan X-Trail does offer a third row of seats if you’re one of the designated drivers for your child’s sports team.

Whether you want petrol or diesel, two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, or a manual or automatic gearbox, the Qashqai is a stylish but unpretentious choice that’ll slot as easily into your lifestyle as it does into parking spaces. An extensive facelift in 2017 introduced some welcome improvements too.

Then, in 2021, a new Qashqai was launched. Marked out by its boomerang-shaped headlights, the latest iteration doesn’t do anything drastically different but does come with a thoroughly updated interior and hybrid options.

The Nissan Qashqai might look like a rufty-tufty SUV but, in reality, it’s barely any bigger than a family hatchback like a Ford Focus – although, of course, it is taller. It’s a little over 4.4m long and 1.8m wide. Its size means it’s reasonably easy to park, and that task is made easier on top-spec cars with lots of cameras and parking assistance. The raised ride height means it’s easy to get children in and out, and you’ll find its height handy if you have limited mobility. Yet, it’s not so high that the family labrador will have to put on mountain-climbing gear to get in the boot.

The Qashqai manages to be a lot more practical than a conventional hatchback, offering plenty of headroom and enough legroom. However, it’s not quite the most spacious SUV so, if you’ve got a particularly bulky child seat or a particularly tall teenager, the Qashqai might start to feel a little cramped.

The pre-2021 Qashqai has a 430-litre boot (seats up), while its newer replacement offers up to 504 litres. Both are a good size, even if they’re a little short of what’s available in the Skoda Karoq or Hyundai Tucson.

Whether you want petrol or diesel, two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, or a manual or automatic gearbox, the Qashqai offers something to suit. There are no hybrids on the previous-generation Qashqai, but the latest iteration does replace the old diesel engines with clean hybrid units.

Four-wheel drive is available on range-topping versions of the Qashqai – both the latest and previous generation – but the vast majority are front-wheel drive. Many of the Qashqai’s SUV rivals are similar in this respect.

The Nissan Qashqai hasn’t always had a reliability record – to be expected given just how many are sold each year – but it seems reliability has improved with the very latest Qashqai. It was named the UK’s most reliable car by Which? in January 2023.
