The new Nissan Qashqai, reinforcing 10 years of crossover leadership
March 7 – Geneva – Nissan unveiled the new Qashqai crossover with significant enhancements at the Geneva International Motor Show. The upgrades focus on a contemporary new exterior design, higher levels of interior quality and improved driving performance giving it a premium character.
New Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies have also been added, continuing Nissan’s ongoing journey towards zero emissions and zero fatalities. The new Qashqai will be available with ProPILOT autonomous drive capability. Controlling the steering, acceleration and braking in a single lane on highways, this will provide consumers with more control of their vehicle and a more confident drive, plus greater freedom when they want it, whether during heavy traffic congestion or high-speed cruising.
The Qashqai’s cabin has been given an improved layout, higher-quality materials and advanced technology delivering a highly attractive and functional interior for all occupants.
The brand new range-topping Tekna+ grade includes new seats trimmed in high-quality soft nappa leather, with luxurious 3D quilting on the centre panels.
The NissanConnect infotainment system now features a smart new user interface and music fans have the option of a BOSE seven-speaker premium sound system.
To complement the interior upgrades the Qashqai’s exterior include a completely revised front end, including the latest Nissan ‘V-motion’ grille.
The headlamps have been revised with a new version of the ‘boomerang’ Daytime Running Light signature, adding to the new Qashqai’s premium appeal.
Added to the Qashqai’s colour palette to boost its premium credentials are two vibrant new finishes. These include Vivid Blue and Chestnut Bronze.
More confident drive
The Qashqai has always been known for its confident drive. Thanks to a number of under-the-skin improvements, the new model maintains its outstanding handling performance. Modifications to the suspension, damping and steering systems have resulted in an even more refined on-the-road experience.
New Nissan Intelligent Mobility Technologies
Since its launch in 2007, the Qashqai has been at the heart of Nissan’s desire to democratise Intelligent Driving technology. With the new Qashqai that commitment to customers is extended even further.
Intelligent Emergency Braking is being upgraded with Pedestrian Recognition. Rear Cross Traffic Alert, to mitigate the risk of low-speed impacts when reversing out of a parking space, is now available on Qashqai for the first time. The Qashqai continues to be offered with Traffic Sign Recognition, Driver Attention Alert, Intelligent Park Assist, Intelligent Around View Monitor, Blind Spot Warning and Lane Departure Warning.
The enhancements make the Nissan Qashqai a stronger and more exciting partner for drivers, ensuring it is ready for its second decade of crossover leadership.
