Audi A5 to Qashkai!!?? what were you thinking!? They're basically the top of a Micra glued to a slightly bigger Nissan with a tall suspension.

I had the unfortunate chance to drive a Qashkai for a week, it was brand new, but was like a Fisher price dashboard with a reverse camera screen smaller than a postage stamp. I tried an overtake in it, once!

Get back in the Audi and breath a sigh of relief! :D

Gove mate, that was truly a trip from the sublime to the ridiculous!!!!! An Audi A1 5 door with the 1.6TDI engine is a lovely little motor if you needed to downsize and save some dosh. The little Micra is ok for a shopping trolley come shoe box, but the Quasquas is a kind of wannabee SUV thing with a 1.5 engine with all of the aerodynamics of a house brick. I have driven several and I find them awful, and I have also driven the A1 and a Micra too.

Not familiar with the "Nissan qashqai", is that a European (if that's where you're from) model? Or just one hell of a typo? :D

Botch we do get some Europe only cars. This Nissan is manufactured in the UK and powered by the Renault 1.5 diesel. It is ok ish for the school run but as exciting as a dead dog. U pays yer money etc.
