The Nissan Qashqai is one of the UK’s most popular cars. In fact, it’s somewhat of a British triumph. Built right here in Britain, the third generation continues where its predecessors left off when it comes to popularity. It’s also one of the most popular lease vehicles too, coming top of the charts in the month of March 2024.

With fresh styling, innovative tech and fuel-sipping hybrid drivetrains, it’s not hard to see why. We’ve collated a list of the top Qashqai alternatives we think are worthy of your monthly payment.

Hyundai Tucson

The Hyundai Tucson is one of the most obvious alternatives to the Nissan Qashqai, and arguably offers a little more individuality. It really showcases how far the Hyundai brand has come in recent years, with the latest version offering a striking design and notable improvements in quality.

It’s really versatile, offering generous passenger and cargo space. The latest Tucson update brought an infotainment update two, with the stunning dual-screen set-up now encased in a single unit.

With a choice of petrol, diesel, or mild hybrid engines, there's ample flexibility to select the option that aligns best with your preferences. While its performance leans towards the school run than a racetrack, it’s a supremely comfortable and capable family car.

If you’re after outright value for money, you can’t go far wrong with the Citroen C5 Aircross. This family crossover offers ample space, all the tech you could want and one of the most comfortable rides in its class.

Unique design elements such as the intricate 3D brake lights and contrasting colour accents along the body set the C5 Aircross apart, adding a dash of individuality in a market segment where many designs get lost in the noise.

In contrast to many mid-size SUVs that prioritize sportiness, the C5 Aircross opts for a focus on comfort, positioning itself as one of the most comfortable family vehicles available, prioritising a smooth ride and spacious interiors over sporty handling.

Cupra Formentor

The Cupra Formentor stands out as a sporty, coupé rendition of its sibling, the Ateca. Its lowered stance and sleek body panelling distinguish it from the Ateca, offering a more refined appearance.

Inside, the Formentor's interior surpasses many competitors when it comes to spec and perceived quality, while its range of petrol and plug-in hybrid powertrains offer a great blend of economy and performance.

High-end models are equipped with all-wheel drive, enhancing acceleration and ensuring excellent traction in challenging road conditions. The Formentor's steering is responsive yet light, which helps instill confidence and creates a driving experience that belies its family-car focus.

Opting for a Ford Kuga lease allows you to experience what is one of the best mid-sized SUVs currently on the market. Sitting above the Puma within Ford’s SUV range, it’s been around a while now. However, a recent overhaul introduced fresh styling and, most significantly, a range of hybrid drivetrain options.

Compared to their predecessors, these models offer increased economy and efficicency, with both the plug-in hybrid and full hybrid models perfect for families after something frugal.  The Kuga has garnered acclaim from UK automotive journalists, who commend its winning combination of user-friendly features, practicality, and superb handling too.
