About the Nissan Qashqai
New Nissan Qashqai Unveiled
Nissan Qashqai revealed the all-new singing and dancing Qashqai model at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. After 10 years since the original Qashqai was launched, Nissan unveils its most premium model, set to be available in summer 2017. It’s not hard to see why the multi award-winning Qashqai was Nissan’s best selling model in the UK last year, outselling its nearest UK rival by almost 20,000 units as well as being Europe's number one crossover.
“We are so excited to hear about the revelation of the latest Nissan Qashqai model and all the new fabulous features. We look forward to welcoming it to the forecourt this summer!” Said Jim Howard, Managing Director of Vehicle Save Leasing and Contract Hire. The new Qashqai now features distinctive new exterior colours, aerodynamic 19-inch wheels and a completely revised ‘V-motion’ grille with updated boomerang daytime driving lights mirrored at the rear.
New Features for The Nissan Qashqai 2017 Model
The under-body ‘vortex generators’ that whisk air currents from the front to the rear of the car, assist stability whilst reducing interior wind and road noise. This is all done without affecting its class-leading 0.31Cd or 99g/km CO2 for the 1.5-litre dCi 110 diesel. Derived from aerospace principles, the golf ball-like surface of these vortex generators not only aids aerodynamics but also reduces wind and road noise entering the cabin to give a quieter drive for the occupants. That, combined with 0.35mm thicker rear glass, stronger door seals, improvements to the engine management, plus more soundproofing throughout makes the interior a better place to travel in. And for the interior? Nissan has gone a step further and introduced a range-topping Tekna+ range that includes Nappa leather trimmed seating with 3D quilting on the centre panels.
The new BOSE seven-speaker sound system is sure to impress the music lovers which can be controlled from command screen. There are further upgrades to the long list of technological aspects...emergency braking, pedestrian recognition, rear cross traffic alert, traffic sign recognition, driver attention alert, intelligent park assist, blind spot warning, lane departure warning and a new auto hill hold feature. The engines and transmissions remain unchanged but there is new spring and damper tuning and a new active rate control with a stiffer rear anti-roll bar.

Superb Control, Handling and Performance from The Nissan Qashqai
By continuously monitoring and responding to road conditions, Nissan’s Chassis Control Technologies provide an agile and responsive drive, giving you increased control and confidence with every twist and turn. Four-wheel drive versions of the Qashqai crossover give you the confidence of Nissan’s All Mode 4x4-i system with torque vectoring. Power is immediately sent to the wheels that need it most, helping maximise traction and delivering responsive, agile performance.
Active Ride Control subtly applies the brakes and adjusts engine torque to give you a smoother ride for any unexpected bumps in your journey. By adjusting the braking to each wheel, Active Trace Control helps the Qashqai stay securely on track. The Active Engine Brake system uses the transmission when you apply the brakes to help slow the Qashqai safely.
The refined electronically-assisted steering, double-piston shock absorbers on two-wheel drive models and and a multi-link rear suspension for four-wheel drive of the Nissan Qashqai lets you enjoy a crossover with a dynamic ride that’s remarkably smooth and controlled, regardless of the road surface. The suspension system conquers bumps, small or large and whatever the road condition. Adjustable steering feedback allows you to choose between Normal or Sport modes whether you're exploring winding countryside roads or handling city streets.
The choice in petrol engines for your Qashqai crossover is either the DIG-T 115 or the powerful DIG-T 163 with its 240Nm of torque. Both of these Qashqai engines feature advanced turbocharging and a Stop/Start System for optimum power output and fuel efficiency.
