2018 Nissan Qashqai SUV Exterior Interior Design & Driving Footage HD
The Nissan Qashqai has guaranteed its place in the automotive history books. It pioneered the C-SUV crossover segment, and even though there are now more than 20 rival products on sale, the Qashqai remains the class benchmark with an unrivalled market share of 10.3%.
Quite simply, Qashqai is the most successful model in Europe in Nissan’s 83-year history, with approximately 2.3 million sold since the original version was launched in 2007. It has won more than 80 awards, including 19 ‘Car of the Year’ titles.
It has also defied traditional automotive product lifecycles. March 2017 was officially its most successful sales month ever across Europe, with more than 33,000 units sold.
At the heart of the Nissan Qashqai’s appeal for more than 10 years has been its position as the ultimate urban crossover. It successfully blends the practicality and desirability of an SUV with the footprint, driving dynamics and running costs of a hatchback. The significant new enhancements will underpin and strengthen the Qashqai’s position as Europe’s number one crossover.
As with all Nissan vehicles, every upgrade – no matter how large or small – has been undertaken with customers in mind and is based on their feedback. Research revealed a desire for exterior styling changes to create a more contemporary and sophisticated look; new premium features and choices for customers opting to buy higher grade models; plus extra refinement and new safety technologies when behind the wheel.
The Nissan Qashqai’s range of efficient engines has been carried over, offering the choice of petrol or diesel, six-speed manual or CVT XTronic automatic transmissions, and two or four-wheel drive to meet every type of customer need. The line-up includes the 1.5-litre 110PS diesel which, with CO2 emissions of just 99g/km and fuel economy of only 3.8 litres/100km, is the segment leader.
