I recently traded my Honda CR-V for a Nissan Qashqai Ti - Love it!
It drives beautifully, it's economical and every feature you would like to have in your vehicle is most certainly present. Nissan is one of the few manufactures who produces a manual transmission in a top spec fit out. The Nissan Qashqai lacks very few features in the Ti Spec.
I recently listened to CarAdvice on Melbourne 3AW on Mondays with Steve Price. Many people called in seeking advice on what SUV with a good seat height should they consider. CarAdvice rates the Nissan Qashqai as an 8.5 out of 10 but it did not come up in the conversation. What are you good folk doing in there turning your back on such an awesome package that has one numerous awards since 2014, both here in Australia and in the UK and Europe.
They have made more than a two million of these cars. It is currently the 5th best selling car in the UK and top of its class. I love the moon roof, the cruise control, the way you can change the boot configuration, The seats and steering will adjustment are top class. Everything is auto - Auto Wipers, Auto Climate, Auto head lights, Auto speed control, Parking is so simple with all the sensors and the fantastic system of cameras and sensors.
Do yourself a favour and take one for a test drive. You will not be wasting your time.
