The Car Guide rating 79%(view ratings)
After dominating sales in Europe, the Qashqai (pronounced “kash-kai”), is arriving in Canada with a starting price of about $20,000. It is likely to be a big hit on this side of the pond, too. All versions have a 141-horsepower, 2.0L four-cylinder engine with direct injection paired with a six-speed manual gearbox (front-wheel drive only) or a continuously variable automatic (front- or all-wheel drive). More compact than the Rogue, it remains versatile and available in very playful colours.
