Running Costs

The most frugal to run is the 1.6-litre diesel engine as it will return 63mpg and it has shockingly low fuel emissions at 119g/km, making its road tax relatively cheap. Even the 1.5-litre petrol engine will make impressive running costs at its Co2 emissions are 145g/km which are much lower than the rival Kia which has 185g/km of emissions and it will only return 31.7mpg compared with the Qashqai’s 45.6mpg. Both cars stand at around the same price as the Qashqai starts at £16,000 with the Sportage coming in at about £500 dearer, however Nissan will come out on top in terms of its running costs.
