The Nissan Qashqai is a thoroughly strong proposition in the crossover class and the Qashqai Acenta model represents a great value option plucked from the sweet spot in the range. The Nissan Qashqai Acenta is the mid-spec model of the range, and is expected to be the best-seller, thanks to its reasonable pricing, decent kit and wide range of engines. Like all versions of the Qashqai, it offers 4×4 styling with the space and running costs of a compact hatchback. There are four engines available: 1.2 and 1.6-litre turbo petrols, plus 1.5 and 1.6-litre diesels. The Acenta model showcases some of Nissan’s in-car technology, and features auto lights and wipers, climate control, ambient interior lighting and the useful luggage board system in the boot.
