Nissan's Qashqai leaves a lasting impression, even if you're not at the wheel. Its bold styling is joined by sharp performance that makes this capable SUV an agile mover. Designed for the urban environment, the model is just as confident on routes less travelled, and its robust build will stand up to whatever the road throws at it.
The cabin of the new generation is more refined than ever, and it is clear supreme craftsmanship has been applied to sculpt fine materials into ergonomic shapes. In the driver's seat, access to all of the Qashqai's functions is effortless so your focus can stay fixed on the road, and passengers have an equally enjoyable experience thanks to the expansive head and legroom. There's also a generous boot, and equipment levels are high with a five-inch integrated display, Bluetooth® and air conditioning.
From the outside, the SUV has an aggressive expression, thanks to narrow swept-back headlamps and a flat bonnet line which creates a distinct brow above them. A wing-shaped front grille stretches between the lights, and here the brand's badge sits within a chrome 'V' surround – a Nissan hallmark. Folds in the bonnet lead back to muscular shoulders, which rise high to give the cabin its airy and spacious feel. Rugged alloy wheels keep the car sure-footed, and roof rails add a further storage option. Choose from metallic or pearlescent paint for a finish that really stands out.
Powering the New Nissan Qashqai to every destination is a choice of two hard-working engines. The dCi diesel is available with 108bhp or 128bhp, and the larger unit's 320Nm of torque makes towing an effortless task. This powertrain is the sole four-wheel drive option for those seeking enhanced traction, and it couples with a six-speed manual gearbox for smooth changes.
