The Nissan Qashqai is an auto that’s better gazed upon than mentioned. It has a difficult and queer-sounding name that’s pronounced as Cash Kai but it does not mean you need plenty of cash to get it. Guess what, this car was tested and is the recipient of the highest ever EuroNCAP crash rating making it a small but one of the safest cars in Europe if not the world..
Excellent safety features aside, the Nissan Qashqai is good-looking and can match the looks of the mini. It may be small but it looks bulky with a distinctive front thanks to the large front lights. It has 16-inch alloy wheels but you can opt for the 17-inch wheels at an additional cost of £700 but if you’re opting for the higher-end Tekna trim then the 17-inch wheels come as a standard feature.
This is not a luxury car so do not expect much from the interiors which has lots of faux chrome, hardwearing plastics and the funky dual-colored seats. There is a glass roof making the interior lighter. This car is a practical vehicle with a boot capacity of 410 liters expanded to 1,513 liters with the rear seat down. If you’re outdoors a lot then you would appreciate the cooled glovebox which can fit 15 soft drink cans or even beer cans.
