Any discussion about the best crossovers available on the Motability scheme would need to include the Nissan Qashqai. Essentially, it gets things right: performance and technology combined with the practical elements, otherwise found in the SUV club.
Styling details such as sleek headlamp design, alloy wheels and a smart front grille as well as overall dynamic sculpting elevate it from austere to awesome!
Agile and responsive performance is vital for a vehicle of the Qashqai’s physical stature. Nissan has achieved a smooth and confident driving experience via innovative chassis control technology. Intelligent Trace Control and Intelligent Ride Control continually monitor surfaces, applying delicate braking, assuring balance, stability and grip – and contributing to a comfortable overall ride. 1
Nissan Intelligent Mobility is an all-round collection of different monitoring and assistance systems that enable a safer, more comfortable and convenient experience.
A very useful feature standard on the N-Connecta grade and above is the Around-View Monitor. It utilises four cameras to provide a 360° ‘birds-eye’ view of your vehicle and its surroundings, helping you to park with confidence. Drivers with limited trunk mobility in particular, will appreciate the assistance. 1
Infotainment flows through a 7” customisable touchscreen and includes NissanConnect entertainment and navigation system, 3D maps, smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and voice control. 2
Technology which helps your journey to be a safer one is a key feature on the Nissan Qashqai. The following highlights are available as standard from Acenta Premium: ABS, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, Anti-Dazzle Rear-View Mirror, Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition (utilising advanced radar technology to constantly monitor surrounding activity) as well as Intelligent Automatic Headlights, High Beam Assist, Rear-View Camera and Front and Rear Parking Sensors. 1
Comfort and style hits are added on the Tekna grade too, with a glorious Panoramic Glass Roof, Silver Roof Rails, Intelligent Key with Push Button Start, Rear Privacy Glass and Monoform Sport Seats standard on N-Connecta grade. While the N-Motion grade features a Black Nappa Leather Trim with 3D Quilting3, Heated Front Seats and 19” Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels.
The Qashqai is altogether generous regarding features, as well as space. Boot capacity is a case in point and is certainly capable of carrying mobility aids or large amounts of shopping or luggage.
Advanced Motability Payment: from £0 for Qashqai DIG-T 1.3 Acenta Premium Manual grade.

2 NissanConnect standard on Acenta Premium grade and above. NissanConnect should only be used when the vehicle is parked safely. Use of the system should always be in accordance with the rules of the Highway Code. Drivers should only use the system when it is safe to do so. Users should be aware of the potential for hands-free technology to distract attention from the road, which could impact on having full control of the vehicle.
