French vs Japanese or?

We had two French cars, a Renault Grand Scenic and a Citroen Xsara Picasso. We traded in the Citroen for a Nissan Qashqai. The trading in part is a bit complex but never mind that, at some point we need to find a car that you you don't have to google in order to spell.

Anyway the Nissan is great, almost new and basically a Renault since Nissan and Renault made the engine together and both use it. We needed a smaller car, no need to drive around in 2 family cars. A crossover SUV is no family car. It is smaller than the Citroen and you can still put a fairly heavy trailer behind it so it fitted or needs and we got some extra features which we would have never gotten in a Toyota Yaris. It's safe and you sit quite high. So yes, liking it.
