Lease a Nissan Qashqai+2 2.0 dCi Tekna from only Â£364.40 per month plus VAT.
The Nissan Qashqai is a fantastic family car thanks to its spacious and comfortable interior and low running costs.Â The standard equipment is very good too.
The 2.0dCi 150bhp is the best engine overall and although it can appear a little noisy at times, it overtakes and revs effortlessly making it a pleasure to drive.Â It comes with a six-speed manual gearbox and an automatic is also available.Â Average combined fuel economy is 47.1mpg and CO2 emissions are around 162g/km.Â The top speed of the 2.0 dCi is 120mph and it takes a time of 10.1 seconds to reach 0-62mph.
The inside of the Qashqai is spacious and choose the optional panoramic glass roof and the cabin becomes much lighter and airy.Â Five adults should be able to sit comfortably in the Qashqai and there is a decent amount of legroom in the back, however the two third row seats are only really designed for children due to the limited head and legroom.Â Extra sound insulation on the updated model has ensured that engine noise is much quieter.Â The instruments and dash are all logically laid out and build quality is top notch with soft touch plastics.Â The steering wheel adjusts for reach and height so everyone should find a suitable driving position and a multifunction steering wheel is standard.Â The higher driving position will suit fans of off roaders and forward visibility is excellent.Â The whole cabin is easy to live with thanks to simple controls throughout.Â With all seven seats in use there is only room for a few carrier bags of shopping inside but with the third row seats folded however, there is 450 litres of luggage space up to the base of the rear windows, or 550 litres with the middle row seats slid forward. The middle seats don’t quite fold completely flat, but with all seats down the load capacity is 1,520 litres which is about the same as a large estate car.Â There is a large glove compartment and a storage drawer under the front passenger seat and there are cup holders between the front seats as well as storage in the armrest.
The Tekna model comes with electric front and rear windows, rain sensor windscreen wipers, rear privacy glass, rear wiper, ABS, ESP + traction control, Bluetooth phone integration system, cruise control, PAS, rear view camera, speed limiter, Nissan connect sat nav system, trip computer, auto dimming interior mirror, electric folding door mirrors, electric operated/heated door mirrors, audio remote control, Bose Premium Audi system with 7 speakers, radio/cd, USB/aux input socket, body colour door mirrors and handles, panoramic glass sunroof, roof rails, automatic headlamp activation, front fog lights, dual zone climate control, leather steering wheel, leather upholstery, heated front seats, alarm, automatic door locking, immobiliser, intelligent key, remote central locking and 18-inch alloy wheels.Â There are many more standard items and further optional items available which can be viewed by clicking on the Nissan Qashqai link below.
The Qashqai+2 gained a maximum five-star rating in the Euro NCAP crash tests and all cars are fitted with twin front, side and curtain airbags plus electronic stability control which can help the car steer out of a skid.Â Isofix child seat mounting points are fitted in the rear and the front head restraints react to reduce the chance of whiplash injuries in the event of an accident.
The Nissan Qashqai+2 may look like an SUV but performs more like a family car.Â It delivers excellent cabin space along with a pleasant and unique exterior design and provides everything that buyers have come to expect from Nissan and much more.
