2nd place with 523 out of 800 points: Mazda CX-30 e-Skyactiv G 2.0 M Hybrid 150 AWD. The active driving CX-30 convinces with good operation, fine furnishings and its attractive price. Price: from 24,790 euros. (on the offer: savings at carwow.de of up to 5593 euros.)
3rd place with 493 out of 800 points: Subaru XV 2.0ie AWD. The relaxed XV offers good suspension comfort and does best off-road. Thirsty hybrid drive. Price: from 23,690 euros.
The Qashqai draws the most
Good 500 to almost 1600 liters are decent values, the XV and CX-30 are more likely to be loaded Compact class level. After all, it has basically manageable dimensions CX-30 to offer a loading sill about five centimeters lower. Another important point goes to the Qashqai, the half a ton more may draw than its two competitors. They rather disappoint for all-wheel-drive SUVs Trailer loads by 1.3 tons.
The CX-30 has the finest interior
In contrast, none of the three disappoints in terms of quality. Mazda sets the Interior design however, the finest icing on the cake works here on finest processed. The CX-30 could have collected even more points if it had done so on bad roads Rattling and crackling better hold back. Above all, the Subaru stands out here, which its makers with a view to off-road-savvy customers have tightened all screws particularly firmly. Anyone having reservations about the Infotainment operation of the old Qashqai can just throw them overboard. Nissan has obviously made an effort to cover the whole subject with one large central screen, the crisp digital instrument cluster and one clearly structured menu navigation more intuitive and easier to design. Every newcomer should get through here quickly.
Subaru goes a different way with the engine
But the Qashqai quickly turns the tables on points again, with Assistance systems the Nissan is best equipped. It is the only one that has pedestrian and cyclist detection as well as one Stop-and-go function for the cruise control. The traffic jam post function – similar to the Mercedes system – also supports the creation of an emergency lane. And the Cruise control adopts the speed limits recognized by the camera.
In addition, the XV and CX-30 do not have one Parking assistants, the Qashqai already. Let’s get to the drives, and it gets wild. Not because of exorbitant performance values, but because of the different systems. All three four-cylinder engines are thirsty petrol, but that was almost it with the similarities.
