Updating from a 308

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Mar 2015

If you're heading down the SUV road then the Qashqai is fine but the new 308 is a ripper car that gets The Tick from me. I would go for either Peugeot option.

Nissan Qashqai ST vs VW Tiguan 118TSi

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Mar 2015

The Tiguan is getting old and the Qashqai is brand-spanking, the latter also with much better warranty and service back-up. Neither is my favourite in the class but I'd go for the Qashqai.

Holden Captiva: Is it a bad car?

Answered by CarsGuide 2 Mar 2015

We compare vehicles against their class rivals and the Captiva is well behind its direct competitors in quality, driving and resale value. It is likely to be more costly than a Dualis — now called Qashqai — because, particularly as a Captiva 7, it is bigger and heavier.

Answered by CarsGuide 1 Dec 2014

You're right that most people would not feel the difference in grip, more likely in a harsher ride. Lots of dealers would be able to find a Qashqai buyer who wants to swap wheels with a Ti buyer like you.

Nissan Qashqai 2014: Low-profile tyres?

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Nov 2014

It's about styling and ultimate grip, aspects that probably don't concern you. Designers save their best work for the larger wheels that come on the higher-priced models, while low-profile generally means better cornering. I'm not generally a fan because of shortcomings in noise and comfort, on SUVs especially.

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Nov 2014

The 2.5-litre petrol engine in the CX-5 will give you the zip you want. If you need oomph for towing, go for the diesel.
