Nissan Qashqai

CO2 emissions 1.5 DCi 110: 99g/km

The stylish Qashqai is one of our favourite crossovers and there are few models that can beat its all-round family appeal. The 110PS 1.5-litre DCi diesel engine is punchy and frugal plus it's allied to strong refinement and a smooth, relaxed driving experience.

As you’d expect the cabin is spacious and practical so it’ll have no trouble dealing with everything a busy family can throw at it. Build quality is excellent and there is plenty of standard kit as well. And a reputation for reliability should make it a painless ownership proposition.

Shame about the batch of faulty windscreens, mine has now been replaced. Other than that, it's a great car, 80 mpg is easily achievable!
