Nissan Qashqai - the original and now even better

  • 24 days ago
Nothing stands still for long in the highly competitive crossover segment that Nissan pioneered with the original Qashqai. And to maintain its place as the reference in its segment, it has received a comprehensive aesthetic refresh, as well as significant technology updates.

From the bold changes to the exterior styling, to the comprehensive updates to the infotainment and connected services on-board, the philosophy behind the changes to Qashqai is to keep the essence of what consumers love about the car, enhance its strengths and to add even more intuitive and convenient technology.

The new Qashqai exudes a sharp and modern dynamism thanks to its refreshed design.

The front grille of the Qashqai has been comprehensively updated to create a more striking first impression. Inspired by the patterns of ancient Japanese armour scales, it now consists of dozens of high gloss, three dimensional comma-shaped elements painted in high gloss black paint which appear to float in the space between the lip of the bonnet and the numberplate holder. To the sides of the central portion, the "commas" form a triangular shape from the new headlights down to a point to the side of the numberplate and they are finished in a "satin chrome" hot foil stamp, on the top grade version.

The flanks of the bumper are body-coloured and a strip of black in a high-gloss finish runs below the numberplate to the lower corners of the bumper. Underneath the cooling aperture, there is a thin body-coloured "chin strap" which gives a sense of definition to the front.
