5 Reasons to Drive a New Nissan Qashqai
You’ll want to lease one after reading this...
It’s no surprise that the Nissan Qashqai is one of our top lease deals. It’s the small family SUV that set the benchmark for others to follow suit – it’s a total trailblazer and trendsetter, and one of those cars people want. But, why? Motorama’s Laura Day reports.
The Nissan Qashqai was the first car to combine 4x4 styling with hatchback running costs and started a whole new class of car – the crossover. But, where does the Qashqai REALLY shine?
1. The Qashqai is more comfortable than your own sofa!
Well…not exactly, but you get the gist. Wide seats and steering wheel adjustment, plus a high-set driving position make the Qashqai a very comfortable car to drive.
And the rear seats are just as spacious – that means enough room for you, your family and your pals! Lack of space will be the last of your worries in this roomy car because it’s got plenty – it’s a small family SUV that serves a big purpose.
2. A big boot means that leasing the Qashqai enables you to have big family plans
The boot can swallow up a couple of large suitcases, with room for more extras in there too. So, if you’re looking for something that’s robust and family-friendly, the Qashqai won’t let you down.
It’s perfect for those long family trips to the beach or countryside.
3. High spec levels come as standard
Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and air-conditioning are standard in entry-level models.
And if you want to upgrade, you’ll benefit from all the fancy mod cons – a panoramic glass roof, roof rails, leather trim interior, heated front seats and a 7" touch screen.
4. Low running costs
Fuel consumption is exceptional – whether you choose petrol for the short journeys or diesel for the long ones, the Qashqai is a reliable choice.
Fuel economy figures are impressive, with the 1.5-litre diesel boasting a formidable 51.9mpg, and the entry-level 1.2-litre petrol managing more than 40mpg when driven carefully. Mind blown!
5. The Qashqai focus is on safety first
The Qashqai comes with 6 airbags, stability control and emergency brake assist, which automatically applies maximum braking pressure if the system detects that you haven’t braked hard enough in an emergency.
Depending on which model you go for, some of the higher-spec models add cross-traffic alert and lane departure warning too.
It's fair to say the Qashqai is packed with features and safer than it's ever been – two big reasons why it should be the top of anyone's car leasing wishlist.
It's the ultimate family bundle
There’s no doubt that this smart SUV promises a next-level driving experience.
