Long term report: Nissan Qashqai
But the Nissan Qashqai is an incredibly boring car to review. It's not that the car itself is boring, just that it does everything so darn well.
After a few weeks thrashing, bashing, poking and prodding our new Qashqai 360 1.6 dCi I'm yet to find anything that comes close to getting on my wick.
Despite having a real presence on the road, it feels small and nimble about town. Meanwhile, the turbocharged diesel engine combines an abundance of power with excellent efficiency.
And in value-added, equipment-laden 360 guise – complete with parking cameras, the Nissan Connect system and a panoramic glass roof – there's not much that can touch its £20,395 price tag.
Finished in a dazzling Arctic White pearlescent paint job and rocking a set of 18-inch Onyx alloys, it looks the part too.
It remains to be seen whether the Qashqai will drop its guard and reveal any bad habits a few weeks down the line but, for now, I'm enjoying the ride.
