The Car Guide rating 79%(view ratings)
The little Qashqai is one of the most affordable SUVs with all-wheel drive in the country. The system is available on S and SV models, standard in top-line SL trim. All three rely on a four-cylinder engine rated at 141 horsepower. The base Qashqai's six-speed manual gearbox is replaced by a CVT automatic in every other trim. Don't miss the ProPILOT Assist semi-autonomous driving tech, which was recently added, and the clever trunk organizer system making cargo hauling more convenient.
