My first posting on the Forum, but not yet a Qashqai owner!
I currently have a Nissan X-Trail which is getting a bit long in the tooth now and have been considering a Qashqai for a while now. I did actually road test one a couple of years ago but the car was just too expensive for me at the time.
Anyway, I'm on the lookout for an N-Tec spec model but have seen very contrasting reviews between the 1.5 and 1.6 Diesel engines. Some reviews are saying the 1.5 is the best and is a more refined engine but some are saying it is underpowered. Other reviews are saying the 1.6 Diesel is the best one albeit at a slightly poorer fuel consumption.
Can anyone give me a realistic overview on the 2 engine options?
