Nissan unveiled the new Qashqai crossover, with significant enhancements of the car’s premium character. The upgrades focus on a contemporary new exterior design, higher levels of interior quality and improved driving performance.
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.

“We have put the Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision at the heart of our product strategy, guiding the development of every vehicle. The new Nissan Qashqai is proof of that, with enhancements which will continue to define and set new standards in the crossover segment,” said Paul Willcox, Chairman of Nissan Europe.
In the cabin, you’ll find an improved layout, higher-quality materials and advanced technology deliver 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.
Also new is a D-shaped multi-function steering wheel with premium satin chrome inserts. It features a new four-way controller for the combimeter display, for more intuitive use and less ‘eyes off the road’ time.
The NissanConnect infotainment system, complete with DAB radio and satellite navigation, now features a smart new user interface. A new option for music fans is a BOSE seven-speaker premium sound system.
The enhancements 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. The addition of adaptive front lighting improves night-time safety.
At the rear, the car’s instantly recognisable ‘boomerang’ light motif is extended across the whole lamp, and now includes a contemporary 3D lens effect to enhance the signature shape.
Added to the Qashqai’s colour palette to boost its premium credentials are two vibrant new finishes. These include Vivid Blue and Chestnut Bronze.
Suspension and Performance
Modifications to the suspension, damping and steering systems have resulted in an even more refined on-the-road experience.
Improved use of absorption materials and increased rear glass thickness have led to a reduction in cabin noise from the road, engine and wind. Striking new 17, 18 and 19-inch alloy wheels are available, all aerodynamically optimised to maximise efficiency.
Even with so many enhancements, the Qashqai’s aerodynamic performance has not been compromised. It retains its class-leading drag coefficient of 0.31, and continues as segment leader on CO2 emissions, with only 99g/km from the 1.5-litre dCi 110 diesel. Such innovation contributes to low running costs for Qashqai drivers.

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.
