After an enjoyable six months with the Qashqai, it is time to let another member of the team take over running it.
All in all the car has been a resounding success. Nissan has presented a complete fleet package which stands up well against its rivals.
All my passengers have been impressed with its interior as much as the exterior, while the extras such as the panoramic roof and 360º parking camera have added a luxurious feeling to the car.
The Qashqai's economy has also been impressive – I've achieved more than 70mpg on a trip and I got another reminder of its fuel-sipping ability a few weekends ago on a trip to Rockingham Raceway when I flicked through the trip computer and was surprised to see the mpg at 69.4.
Granted, for a large part of the journey I was limited to 50-55mph as I was stuck behind a lorry on winding roads, but it is still impressive.
Only a few niggles have emerged during the Qashqai's time with me. The gearchange is quite stiff and the sound system is not the best I have heard. But, for me, the only real negative, which I am sure Nissan would disagree with, is its popularity. You cannot seem to drive down a road or into a car park without being passed by another one.
However, Nissan’s crossover is fun to drive, great to look at and offers a comfortable ride, which makes it a real winner for me.
