Used Nissan Qashqai
Nissan launched the hard to spell Qashqai in 2007 and it came with a bold statement: "There's change in the air Thanks to the Nissan Qashqai, something different has arrived. You need never drive a boring car again." Big words, right? Well, after 10 years we can now see if they were right… and, rather annoyingly, they were. Nissan didn’t re-invent the wheel with the Qashqai but what they did do was create another niche vehicle that spawned a new sector in the market.
The Qashqai is now the class-leading car and continues to do very well on the sales figures. It’s testament to Nissan’s bravery and ability to create a car we thought we’d never need. It’s basically an MPV designed for the city streets; a car that isn’t too big but isn’t too much. Clever, eh?
The Qashqai – appeals to almost everyone, as it’s got plenty of space, loads of practicality and yet still looks kind of funky and ‘out-there’.
Bang for your buck
Most Qashqai models car capable of 0-62mph in less than ten seconds, so they can be quite fun cars to drive. The whole point of the Nissan Qashqai is that its streetwise, urban-proof and durable, so you get bags of easy-to-use tech and a well-made and solid body-shell.
What you’ll pay
Prices start at around £9,750 for the 2010 versions and this is for the face-lift model Nissan gave the car during that period. It just looks and drives better than the early models with less problems too

How does it drive ?
Very well indeed, the Qashqai is a great driver’s car, despite its size and large body. It’s far from a Ferrari but for such a bulky family car it really does handle well. It’s quite nimble, relatively agile and soft, so those city streets are taken with ease. It also has really practical rear-seating, meaning you can swap the seat layout about to accommodate the kids or luggage.
It’ll out-handle any of its rivals, and with it being a Nissan, you know it’s going to be reliable, too. Really, it’s the perfect car for modern Britain, as none of us really want a big MPV, but the Nissan Qashqai range just make everything easier.
