This is the all-new, all-singing, all-dancing* (* may not sing or dance) Nissan Qashqai

It's the third-generation of Nissan's genre-defining crossover/SUV/estate/family car thingy, and it is arguably Britain's most important car, owing to it being designed, developed, and built here. It's also perennially one of the best-selling cars in the world, with more than three million sold since its 2006 introduction.

Join James Disdale as he tests the 1.3-litre mild hybrid petrol Qashqai, which makes 156bhp, enough to propel it from 0-62mph in 9.5 seconds, while it has a top speed of 128mph. 

In this DiG-T Tekna+ form its price is £34,175 in the UK.

That £36k will get you most of the competition with chagne to spare, even Audi Q3 and BMW X2 which both have better engines and interiors, plus premium badges. 

Not sure Nissan have really done enough improvement to justify that price.

In this DiG-T Tekna+ form its price is £34,175 in the UK.

For the manual version, but as the video states, in this form ( CVT) the car costs £36125.

That's an awful lot of money for an elastic band driven 1.3L ICE.  Even midrange autos are over £30K. Unless Nissan are aggressive with discounting, I just can't see the success of the previous Qashqai continuing.
