I would say both cars has its common problems, and would be largely be based on luck.

For practicality, go for Qashqai. It is higher, bigger boot space and more comfortable. Its presence would also be better. Considering that Qashqai is a very popular model, and it also shares a lot of parts with Renault, I would say spare parts (or even aftermarket upgrades) can be easily obtained.

For budget and better drive, go for the Mazda 3. SUVs/Crossovers cost of parts and its maintenance tend to be higher (i.e. bigger tyres, additional cost for car wash/paint protection, parts tend to be more expensive than their sedan/hatchback counterparts). Being smaller, they tend to be lighter and more fuel efficient.
What kind of common problems? If it's common, it's not a problem.

small cc car with turbo, high compression not ideal unless u can run the car often in highway condition

if direct injected with turbo even worse

I owned mz3 deluxe n once a while I drive my friend QQ 1.2t

Talking abt interior space. QQ is bigger

Interior wise mazda 3 is better

Fc mazda 3 should be better. Base on my friend n neighbour fc, they achieve abt 12km/l, n I can achieve easily more than 13km++

Handling - mazda 3

FYI. QQ is made in UK n should be using Renault parts if I'm not wrong. My uncle is driving the Nissan nv 200 1.4t van. Their parts r very ex

How much they quoted u
Then mazda part expensive ?

Small cc with turbo usually will have low end torque as the turbo is set to kick in earlier.

High compression engine is stressing the engine higher so as to gain better efficiency.

Thanks! Too many considerations on my mind. I've never driven a SUV/Crossover before and worried that it might disappoint from various angles.

I've owned a 2004 Mz3 Hatch before and got into an accident which is why it's hampering my decision. Abit "pan tang".

I paid $82k during car expo. I didn't take 5 year warrenty or 3 yr servicing and $500 service credit or petrol voucher so got additional 2k discount off from $84k. Freebies solar film, dual channel cam, car air purifier or vacuum and brila body coat.

Oh..bo hua leh. I think warranty is important.. but its individual ba. Anyway, the price is super attractive. The only thing that will scale my decision is the price. 😁😁
