    Nissan Qashqai - The UK's Favourite Crossover

    The market-leading Nissan Qashqai is the firm favourite when it comes to the UK’s favourite crossover and it is not difficult to see why when compared to other vehicles from the same segment. You only need to take a look at the numerous prestigious awards that the Qashqai has won to see why it comes out on top.

    Best Small SUV in the prestigious What Car? Used Car Awards 2018


    Alex Robbins, Used Cars Editor at What Car? Magazine said: ‘The first-generation Nissan Qashqai is still a firm favourite on the used market, and we can see why. Few SUVs of its age so convincingly combine the raised driving position of an SUV with the manageable dimensions of a family hatchback. What’s more, the Qashqai serves up a compelling blend of comfort, quality and practicality’.

    ‘In addition, its popularity means there are plenty of good quality examples around to choose from and this keeps prices reasonable, making this superb family SUV a fantastic used buy’.


    Due to these awards, the Qashqai has also gained an excellent reputation as a go-to Nissan Motability vehicle as well as continuing to be an ever-increasing hit with families. In addition to these awards, the Qashqai is also popular due to the next-generation crossover design.  This incorporates state of the art connected features, advanced technology and outstanding handling which puts the driver in full control while behind the wheel.


    With the very latest 1.5 dCi 115 Euro6d engine, class leading CO2 and enhanced Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies, Qashqai has an outstanding proposition within the segment. This is coupled with enhanced finance offers which deliver segment leading value such as:

    • 0% and 4.99% PCP finance offers with up to £3250 FDA support
    • £750 test drive FDA on top of all other offers
    • £500 Loyalty FDA for existing Nissan customers on top of all other offers
    • 2 years low cost servicing 

    Nissan Qashqai vs Vauxhall Grandland X?


    The Vauxhall Grandland X has seen Vauxhall enter into the crossover SUV segment, 10 years after the Nissan Qashqai established the core category. But can it compete with the Qashqai? We don’t think so and neither does the evidence below.


    Qashqai starts at £19,080 whereas the Grandland X is over £3000 more expensive with entry level starting at £22,310.

    Residual Value
    If you are looking for a vehicle that holds its value tremendously well, then look no further. Qashqai came in the top 10 of Best Residual Value Cars in 2017 due to retaining over 50% of its value in 3 years.
