Review: Nissan Qashqai Tekna


Finding the perfect family car can be a challenge and there different families have different needs. We have moved on from needing three car seats in the rear, with now just Sebby needing one, but we also have to consider that Isaac (12) and Eliza (9) are growing fast and will soon need more leg room. Over the half term break, we were invited to review one of the UK’s best selling family cars – the Nissan Qashqai Tekna, and… Continue Reading “Review: Nissan Qashqai Tekna”
