Just collected my new Qq N-Connecta 1.6 petrol in beautiful vivid blue, like the one in the TV ad. Because of the stormy weather I've only driven it 12 miles, but I'm impressed so far! Having traded in a Citroen Berlingo Multispace - the fourth one of that model I've owned - I'm delighted and even excited, but to be honest, I'm also slightly overwhelmed by all the gadgets and options. Can't complain that the instruction manuals (three of four of them) are not comprehensive. I'm spending the evening browsing through them. First impression is that the main difference from my Citroens is the beautifully smooth steering and ride, but I'll be lucky if the Qashqai matches the mpg of the Berlingos. I decided on petrol after many years of diesel, which makes sense to me these days. Looking forward to driving my new car in decent weather!

Enjoy your new QQ (and good luck with finding some decent weather! ;) ) The new vivid blue certainly seems to shaping up to be a popular colour.

Only had it 24 hours and several people have already commented: "Lovely colour." Still fathoming my way through all the gizmos :lol:

Hello Terry. Just collected my 2nd QQ. I saw a new red QQ on my way home from the dealers this morning - it was the first facelifted one I've seen on the road. I'm just getting used to the slight tweaks Nissan have made inside the cabin/steering wheel compared with the 2014 N-Tec I had before. Mine has been locked in the showroom, away from the wild weather, for the last few days ☔️

Enjoy yours 😊

Thanks for the kind thoughts. Love the colour, and it drives beautifully. It's positively space age compared to the Berlingos I've been used to. Here it is. Thought it best to pixel out the reg number online. Hope that's OK. I paid for mudflaps, which Nissan insist on calling mudguards for some reason, and a spare wheel. I really do think Nissan have produced a lovely looking car.
