A pioneer of the crossover market, the Qashqai has been a family favourite since 2006. Blending the compact exterior dimensions of a hatchback with the practicality and interior space of an SUV, this is a model that handles urban life with energy. Building on the previous model’s design, the latest iteration features a more muscular aesthetic, with prominent shoulder lines and an enlarged grille creating a commanding presence. The profile is more athletic, with a single contour sweeping over the length of the body to convey a sense of dynamism.
Step inside and you’ll find a comfy, welcoming environment where the driver is at the centre of everything. The supportive seats feature heating and massage function on selected trims to ensure a relaxing journey, while a digital instrument cluster and infotainment display ensure intuitive access to the vehicle’s technology and performance data. Onboard features include Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a rear camera, and a six-speaker sound system as standard, with satellite navigation being added on ST+ trim and above.
Powering the new Nissan Qashqai is a newly developed 1.3-liter turbocharged petrol engine with an output of 110kW and 250Nm of torque, and fuel consumption of 6.1L/100km. A CVT gearbox and supple suspension provide a smooth ride, while a quicker steering rack delivers sharper responses.
