USED NISSAN QASHQAI: 460 in Stock from just £6,250

Since its launch, the innovative Qashqai has spawned an entire new breed of ‘crossover’ cars that mix elements of previously different classes. In this case, the Qashqai mixes off-road looks and stance with the practicality of a family hatchback or saloon, all wrapped up in a good looking exterior. As an all-round family car, it has proven itself against many of its rivals, but in some regards it is neither fish nor fowl when it comes to outright offroading ability or as a people carrier.

The Nissan Qashqai is a classic example of an off-roader which is not built for off-road. The power is solely contained in its front wheels, meaning it does not tackle slippery, or bumpy roads well.

The absence of low range gears and diff locks make it even more apparent that this car was not meant to drive you through the mud or snow, but it will keep you safe on the roads thanks to its high driving position and safety kit.

Nissan present the Qashqai as more of an MPV or crossover, capable of protecting and carrying a large family well. It is styled like a Land Rover with large alloy wheels and big wheel bumpers, in fact, if you sit in the driving seat, you could almost be inside a Land Rover Freelander or a Honda CR-V.

However, we don’t think it is up to scratch as an MPV car either as the cabin is just not roomy or spacious enough and 6 foot adults will struggle in the back. The seats are not very versatile either, and will only fold down flat as opposed to sliding and tipping in many other rival MPV cars.

The problem is, with two-wheel drive, you are never going to be able to get to places that rivals can, and you’ll have to pay for quite a high spec 2.0 litre petrol or diesel model before 4-wheel drive is even an option, and even then, its advised that snow is about as difficult as this car can handle.

Many people who buy a 4×4 car, are looking for something which is big, spacious and looks impressive in their local supermarket car park. If this is the case then the Qashqai will do just fine. It drives well and offers a smooth, powerful drive creating little engine or wind noise.

It also offers great fuel efficiency at 52mpg coupled with low CO2 output.

The mid-level Acenta model comes with plenty of gadgets to include climate controlled air conditioning, auto-on lights and alloy wheels as part of the set price. It is an expensive car if you compare it to a medium sized family car such as the VW Golf, but is much cheaper than other off-road rivals, if you’re happy to accept that the car will only ever perform well on-road as opposed to off.
