The Nissan Qashqai is the original crossover. While it wasn’t actually the first of its kind, it was car that popularised the bodystyle and kickstarted the country’s obsession with big-yet-small, sporty-yet-practical and stylish-yet-practical crossovers.
The refreshed 2017 model improves on its older brother, beefing up the front grille and bumpers, improving the safety tech and generally tightening up every little detail.
The Qashqai is still miles ahead of other crossovers in the looks department too. It perfectly combines a raised driving position with a hunkered down sporty aesthetic to create something that just feels different.
For a great looking, great driving and surprisingly affordable crossover, look no further than the Nissan.
