1. Qashqai is named after a nomadic tribe living around Iran, and is pronounced ‘cash-kai’.
2. The entry level Nissan Qashqai ST has a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine producing 106kW/200Nm. It comes with either an automatic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) or a six-speed manual.
3. The ST - and all higher model grades Ti, TS and TL - only come in front-wheel drive.
4. Combined urban and highway fuel consumption is listed at 6.9L/100km for the ST.
5. The ST has a generous 430L boot with all seats in use.
6. A high driving position perched on the Nissan Qashqai’s SUV suspension ensures good visibility for all passengers.
7. Mobile phone connectivity requires hooking up to NissanConnect, which can be confusing and cumbersome.
8. There are neither air vents nor adequate storage compartments for rear seat passengers.
9. The entry-level ST is a well-appointed baseline model with cloth trim and cruise control, though premium goodies like a panoramic sunroof, rain sensing wipers, automatic on/off headlights and seven-inch colour touchscreen with satnav are only available in higher models.
