This new engine is the perfect example of Nissan’s Pure Drive strategy, replacing the previous 2.0 dCi with a more efficient engine that not only delivers lower emissions and considerably improved levels of fuel economy but which offers the same level of performance as the bigger engine.

Best of all, when coupled with Nissan’s Stop / Start system CO2 emissions tumble to just 119 g/km. At the same time, innovative new options become available on the Nissan Qashqai range, including a new CVT gearbox and, for the first time on a C-segment car, Around View Monitor. AVM uses a series of small cameras located on the exterior of the vehicle to make parking and manoeuvering as safe as possible by giving the driver a real-time helicopter view of the environment around the car. The moves will underline Nissan’s leadership of the booming Crossover market and keep Nissan Qashqai one, or even two, steps ahead of its opposition.

The upcoming Nissan Qashqai is believed to be available with body colour wings, door handles and body match upper bumpers. The side view of the car looks much larger thus helps to judge the ample inside room of the Qashqai. The car has got new alloy wheels that enhance the sporty look; it has 16 and 17 inch alloy wheels with five spokes. The higher ground clearance can be noticed from this view as well.

The rear side of the Nissan Qashqai has also been upgraded to complement the overall appearance. It has new LED tail lights, a high stop lamp at rear spoiler; the lower end portion sports brake and night time running lights as well. The rear side of the crossover looks very much as a hatchback. A sleek antenna is positioned at the rear end of the roof. The rear windshield comes in a distinctive design that also give it a fresh look. The Nissan Qashqai gets additional roofrails that gives it more height than the base model.
