Nissan’s Qashqai is now a full fledged urban SUV with no off-road capability at all.
It’s a small front wheel drive wagon on stilts but that doesn’t detract from the fact that the little, Pommie-built Nissan is a good thing in its natural environment on sealed roads.
A practical car, Qashqai can be put to many driving tasks with confidence and it looks good and drives well into the bargain.
Better than Thai built competitors any day.
