Best Small 2WD SUV under $35,000

It’s true, Nissan hasn’t won many Australia’s Best Car Awards over the past decade, but that has all changed with the QASHQAI ST. In 2014 no other vehicle came close in one of the fastest growing categories, best small 2WD SUV under $35,000. It seems Australia’s enthusiasm for SUV’s continues to project skywards, and industry sales trends indicate off-road capability isn’t what people are looking for. Versatility, practicality, easy access, high driving position and the SUV look are far more important features, with one in three small SUV’s sold now a two-wheel drive vehicle rather than the all-wheel-drivel equivalent.

And it’s not just the outside that is turning heads. Inside the QASHQAI you’ll notice a standard has been set not normally seen in this category. Standard features include leather-wrapped steering wheel, soft-to-touch dash and cabin trim, electric parking brake, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, cruise control and reversing camera, qualities almost unheard of for an entry level SUV vehicle such as the ST model. For simple and logical use, you’ll enjoy switchback tactility and location, as well as a multi-function wheel.

For a vehicle in the ‘small’ car category, you’ll be amazed at the amount of space inside. Four adults can travel in comfort, so a growing family will be more than happy, while there is 430L of space in the boot for whatever cargo you need to carry with you. More space features include moveable flooring to create different sized compartments, large centre console, door pockets with ample room, enough drink bottle holders for the whole family, and many other storage spaces add to the overall offering. 

Safety has played just as big a role as design and technology with six airbags, electronic stability control, electronic brake distribution, ABS, brake assist and LED daytime running lights are standard coming as standard across the QASHQAI range. In the Ti and TL models, you’ll enjoy advanced safety features including lane departure and blind spot warning, moving object detection, intelligent park assist, around-view monitor and LED headlights.

Brilliant fuel economy and outstanding performance are a result of the 2.0-litre direct injection petrol engine packed with 106kW and 200Nm of power, with a highly efficient turbo diesel option available in the higher spec models. The stepped change transmission imitates a normal automatic transmission without the common flaring issues normally found in CVT autos, while its seamless and capable driveline delivers a performance level way ahead of the competition.

McPherson struts, sophisticated multi-link rear and multiple electronic systems ensures the QASHQAI’s handling capabilities are the equal of any other SUV in its class, despite its industry leading size, space and ride comfort levels.

It’s clear that 2014 saw the Nissan QASHQAI immerge supreme in the small 2WD SUV under $35,000 category, and the competition will have to continue to play catch-up.
