Nissan has updated its popular Qashqai compact family car and it’s now available in South Africa. See specification and pricing details below…
The Nissan Qashqai has proven popular in the compact family car segment and buyers will be happy to know that a refreshed Qashqai is now available!
The big news for the latest Qashqai is the arrival of a new 7-inch NissanConnect infotainment system which features a new interface with a more intuitive display, redesigned fascia, customisable home screens and widgets and single line search for the navigation system which makes it easier and quicker to find a location. The touchscreen itself has a new button layout and a faster processor to enhance operating speed.
The system also offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. The system also provides a view of the rear-view camera.
Nissan has also beefed up its Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) safety specification which now includes Intelligent Forward Emergency Braking, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Blind Spot Warning, and Intelligent Cross-Traffic Alert.
The Qashqai benefits from a new infotainment system that Nissan says is faster and more intuitive.
Nissan has now streamlined the Qashqai range with 5 derivatives on offer. The range starts with the familiar 1.2-litre turbopetrol engine that produces 85 kW and 190 Nm of torque. This engine is offered in the entry-level Visia trim grade as well as the mid-spec Acenta and top-of-the-range Tekna grade.
A 1.5-litre turbodiesel engine with 81 kW and 260 Nm of torque is now offered in the Acenta Plus trim grade only.
The Qashqai can be had with either a 6-speed manual transmission or Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), the latter of which is offered on the Acenta and Tekna trim grades only.
