Nissan's intention is to provide the ultimate urban driving experience, and the Nissan Qashqai urban crossover is the ideal vehicle from which to experience the exemplary level of production that has gone into this line. Utilising a new design, advanced intuitive technology and state-of-the-art connected services, motorists can be sure that the Qashqai is offering them the most up-to-date experience a personal vehicle can give. Nissan's dynamic ride and superb level of handling puts the driver in full control.
Designed to be provocative, the new Qashqai is described by Nissan as being the 'new urban triathlete' and 'the most innovative Qashqai yet'. The exterior lines are razor-sharp, and the bold and athletic profile with its "V-Motion" chrome grille gives the vehicle an almost predatory nature. Encapsulating 'purity in purpose', the Qashqai has a commanding visual presence that is set to revolutionise the drive experience. Nine different colours are available to customise the outer body, including Flame Red, Ink Blue, Nightshade and Bronze.
Interior trim is available as Charcoal cloth, Graphite cloth, or Graphite leather. The cabin is opulent and enveloping, with spinal support seats and cushioned kneepads helping occupants to maintain a comfortable posture. Ambient lighting contributes to the atmosphere, and the driver has access to all of the Qashqai's technological functions from the 5" colour TFT screen. This provides functions such as audio entertainment, steering weight settings, parking display sensors and a tyre pressure monitoring system. Motorists can also take advantage of the optional NissanConnect system, which uses a high resolution 7" anti-glare touchscreen and provides a DAB radio, Bluetooth® audio streaming, and smartphone app integration.
Two diesel engines and a petrol unit are available with the new Qashqai, allowing drivers to find an appropriate balance of power and economy. With 130PS and maximum torque of 320Nm, the most powerful unit available is the 1.6 litre dCi diesel with two-wheel drive, which can achieve 0-62mph acceleration in 9.9 seconds. The 110PS diesel is less powerful, but can achieve outstanding fuel economy of 78.5mpg and CO2 output of 99g/km.
Occupants of the Qashqai can travel safe in the knowledge that the car has been awarded the coveted five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. Elements that won it this award include the suite of six airbags included as standard, forward emergency braking, and the Driver Attention Alert which is provided to ward off the effects and dangers of driver fatigue.
