The Nissan Qashqai is the family hatchback that thinks it's an SUV. You would have thought that could have been a recipe for disaster, but Nissan's engineers managed to blend the qualities of both vehicle types to produce a well-rounded product.
The Qashqai delivers a good driving experience with low noise levels and ride comfort emerging as clear strengths. The handling isn't the sharpest in the class but most owners won't be too put out by that. Economy is good with the 74mpg 1.5-litre dCi rivalling the greenest family-sized cars around.
At Warranty first we are seeing a steady increase in the number car warranties placed on the Nissan Qashqai, not surprising when you compare the cost of repairs to other similar class cars.
