First launched in 2007, the Nissan Qashqai took UK roads by storm thanks to its incredible practicality and even better price-point. While it wasn’t the original crossover, the car was definitely the trailblazer in the compact SUV segment. It ran nearly competition-free until the SEAT Ateca, Mazda CX-5 and Peugeot 3008 made entry. With a good view from the bonnet, looks that slay and affordable running costs, the Qashqai fires on all cylinders – no wonder it features among the top in sales charts. In case you were wondering, the name comes from a nomadic central Asian tribe who tread the highland pastures of Shiraz and the warmer winter lands of the Persian Gulf.

Smaller boot compared to rivals
The 2014 second-generation Qashqai has stayed true to its comfort-oriented design, while constant updates have kept things fresh. The latest 2017 facelift brought notably sharper detailing and better interiors. From base-level trim to the range-topping Tekna+ with sports-pack, every Qashqai is well equipped – no one’s getting a raw deal here.
