Nissan Qashqai Interior

The Nissan Qashqai is well suited to family life, thanks to the Qashqai’s huge boot and spacious feeling interior. The rear seats don’t do anything particularly clever, but they do fold flat without the need to flip up the seatbases first. All model aprt from the entry-level Visia also come with a false boot floor, under which you can store your parcel shelf when you’re not using it.

Nissan’s latest Qashqai gets the basic things right, by having lots of adjustment to the driver’s seat and even the steering wheel. The driver interface and console are very easy to use. One drawback is that the thick front and rear pillars can obstruct view, and adjustable lumbar support only come with the top models.
