19 Aug 2022  |  Nissan Reviews
With a great exterior and a nimble drive, the Nissan Qashqai is a great leap ahead of its predecessor. Should you get one over its peers?

Review
This Nissan Qashqai comes with a new exterior design that is one quantum leap from its predecessor.

Tasty details include the sharp head lights, V-motion grille, and the sleek treatment of the sheet metal all around.

What I like
The new Qashqai is reasonably big, but still oh so easy to drive. The car just feels smaller than it is when you're in the driver's seat, thanks to decent visibility.

There's also comfortable seats, and a good space for all. And getting in and out of the car is also easy, thanks to doors that open wide, as well as comfortable soft seats.

And to drive this thing is also quite astonishing. There's a quiet motor and you get none of the rubber band effect associated with CVTs in here. Push the drivetrain hard and you'll get a fair bit of gruff and coarseness, sure, but there's really more than enough power here so you won't be stretching this Nissan's legs for long.

What I do not like
Is there anything to complain about here? I guess the high COE prices mean you won't be able to get this Qashqai for cheap anytime soon. But with 156bhp and that quiet drive this thing feels close to a premium car, and well deserves the price.

Just don't touch that plastic wood that fills up the cabin.

Review
Test drove the Nissan Qashqai Prestige variant which had all the bells and whistles. While it is significantly wider than any other car I've driven. (1835mm vs 1780mm). It's comfortable to drive. Zero Gravity Seats are nice. The 1.3L turbo made by MB is actually very punchy paired with the Mild Hybrid system, I could get 15.5km/l driving normally. While it is a heavy car, the Qashqai's CVT gearbox is very new. First chain-driven CVT by Jatco and can support a maximum torque of 330nm. In this case, a stage 1 chip tune would make it much more lively at picking up speed. But for me, it is more than enough to get up to speed and cruise. The HUD is a very nice safety feature. It allows you to be aware on what's happening on the road instead of looking down to see the speed and directions.
When it comes to ride comfort, it does not disappoint. Turning radius is average.

What I like
- HUD
- Built in the UK, very heavy doors. Euro NCAP's side impact showed the door having almost no signs of cave-in due to impact.
- Nissan's new CVT-X does not have any rubberband or slip.
- 11-speaker bose sound system
- Massive wheels. 235/50 R19. You can cross over anything including flash floods

What I do not like
- Weight. Car is nearly 1.5 tons.
- Price-tag due to UK build quality and OMV.
- Have to remove subwoofer to retrieve spare tyre.
- Electric seats, while super comfy, no memory function and very difficult to adjust seating position.

Review
This new Nissan Qashqai is quite the looker, which is already a vast step up from the previous generations. Buy it in blue.

What I like
There's decent urgency and power to be had from this new Qashqai, despite being only a 1.3-litre and having to pull this much SUV.

But the way the car goes about eating up miles is more impressive. The engine is remarkably smooth, and cabin insulation is strong here. Hushed conversations at high speed are easily doable. And the ride is not too firm either, eliciting high confidence even over bad roads.

What I do not like
The cabin is likewise a good cut above the predecessors. Space is decent, and that plastic faux wood trim is a good alternative for all those that cannot stand scratched up high gloss plastics. They do not feel that good to touch though.

Review
Went down to the showroom 2 days back, and wanted to get a quick test drive since on paper the spec all good, 1.3L cheap road tax too. As an SUV should be comfy. Saw the car and it looks quite imposing with the size, but once i tried getting in the car, head almost bang roof. Stepped out and lowered the electric seat to its lowest, still the same. Felt worse than getting into my A3 (which is already very low IMO).

once seated in, probably max a fist size roof space... For a SUV that's pretty lame. Back seats' the same even though there's no sloping roof line.

What I like
Drive train power to engine size ratio.
good specs for sub 1.5L engine size SUV
turbo + hybrid = win

What I do not like
the very apparent lack of roof space. what a waste =(
