Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The facelifted 2018 Qashqai gets a fresh look, more kit and new tech. It's a good thing, but is it a standout option in the small SUV segment?

Pros
Still looks smart
Above-average cabin practicality
Improved on-road refinement
Good cabin build quality
AEB now standard across the range

Cons
It's pretty expensive
Can feel underpowered
Key active safety reserved for top models
Ti, adaptive cruise not here until mid-2018
Tyre roar, busy ride on 19-inch wheels
Still no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

By: 
caradvice.com.au

Pros
Spacious interior for size
Addition of AEB
Good comfort equipment list

Cons
Aggressive tyre choice spoils ride
Space saver spare tyre
No Apple Carplay or Android Auto

The GLC-Class is a wholly competent crossover that could only benefit from more excitement.

Pros
Quiet and refined,
gorgeous and spacious interior,
more practical than a C-Class.

Cons
Lacks driving verve,
limited cargo space,
most driver assists aren't standard.
