Nissan has revised the Qashqai, its longstanding crossover offering, with changes to its design and onboard technology.

Sales figures from Europe indicate over 350,000 units of the Qashqai have been sold since its third generation was introduced more than three years ago.

The latest iteration of the Qashqai includes modifications to the front grille, which features a new pattern, and to the lighting systems, which now offer adaptive high beams and wider beam distribution.

The rear lights have been redesigned, and three new exterior colours are available, with some colours offering a two-tone option with a black roof.

A new N-Design grade has been added to the Qashqai lineup, distinguished by specific body colours and wheel designs.

Inside, the vehicle has received updates to materials and trims, aiming for a refreshed cabin experience.

These include the use of Alcantara® on certain surfaces and revised seat designs across different model grades, along with new ambient lighting options.

In terms of technology, Nissan has integrated Google services into the infotainment system and improved the functionality of the Around View Monitor.

There are also refinements to the suite of driver assistance systems, including the recalibration of Autonomous Emergency Braking functions and the addition of a customizable Driver Assist Custom Mode.

The Qashqai continues to offer the e-POWER powertrain, which utilises an electric motor driven by a petrol engine-generated electrical supply, absent of a traditional gearbox.

This model is presented as an option for consumers considering a transition to electric vehicles but not ready to commit to a fully electric option.

The update aims to maintain the Qashqai's presence in the crossover market, focusing on revised design elements and technology integrations.

Fuel Consumption and Emissions (WLTP):

  • Qashqai Mild Hybrid: 6.2-7.1 l/100km*, 141-160g/km* CO2
  • Qashqai e-POWER: 5.1-5.3 l/100km*, 117-120g/km* CO2

*Figures vary by model grade and are pending official validation.
