Qashqai vs. Corolla reliability comparison?

Is the 2007 Nissan Qashqai 1.5 dCi comparable in reliability to the 2007 Toyota Corolla 1.4 D-4D? I most likely will be buying one or the other in the near future (but also considering the Toyota Avensis 2.0 D-4D) and my heart is saying Qashqai, but my head is saying Corolla (I do 20,000 miles per year).

I would appreciate an independent viewpoint

Thanks - Cathal
