Snow and rain; traffic jams and roadworks; manic motorways and snowy Alpine passes; Europe threw it all at us on day three of our Nissan Qashqai road trip.

Again, the new Nissan has conquered everything we've thrown at it in its smooth, refined and comfortable way as we now leave Western Europe behind us and head further east.

The day started up in the clouds in Liechtenstein, before heading into Austria where the fog and drizzle soon made way to sleet and then snow as we headed onto an Autobahn in the mountains.
