ASK THE EXPERT – Nissan Qashqai


“Some say she has driven over 50 types of car and can parallel park a Jaguar XJL. Others say she can strap in three children at once without even breaking a sweat… All we know is she’s The Expert.”


We put our world-wise driver (She’s not quite The Stig, but she knows her stuff) to the test and asked her to test drive the Nissan Qashqai to find out why it’s just won What Car? Car of the Year 2016. Read on below…

The popularity of this vehicle is no surprise as the Nissan Qashqai has been a firm favourite of Easirent (we currently have 50 on our fleet) and frequently receives excellent reviews on Trust Pilot and Review Centre.

I rented a ford focus from the office in Glasgow city centre. The car was not available so we got an upgrade for free to a Nissan Qashqai.
The car was awesome, with panoramic roof and all the extras a car can have: camera assisted parking, automatic long lights, heating on seats…
It was hard to give the car back!
The staff is very friendly and the price I got was good.
I’ll very probably hire again with them.

How did it fair for a test drive? Well pretty great on fuel, it’s true and low on pollution, a great choice for a family car, the chassis is suited to British roads offering a smooth drive whether on the way to school pick-up, or back to the country. Enjoyed the engine refinement, there’s no wind and road noise as the high quality interior allows for a quiet and smooth drive. The interior has soft plastic switch buttons which are resilient and durable. The N-Tec models offer dual climate zone, there are also variations on the lights seat covers and they come a variety of colours. The acceleration is smooth and tackles all those bumps. The Nissan Qashqai also offers enough boot space, fully tested by the children!
