NISSAN LAUNCHES THE NEXT GENERATION QASHQAI IN SUB SAHARAN AFRICA
The Nissan Qashqai offers the ultimate crossover experience, reimagined.
Johannesburg, South Africa - Nissan Qashqai pioneered the crossover segment, back in 2006 as the first of its kind, paving the way for others to follow by blending the best of what a hatchback could offer, with SUV practicality. Now in its 3rd generation, Qashqai is reimagined to again, define what the crossover of tomorrow can be, today. Nissan customers can expect exceptional standards of enhanced styling and elevated premium comfort with a host of exciting driver technologies unlike anything else in the category.
STRIKING NEW DESIGN LANGUAGE
The all-new Nissan Qashqai offers a bold, imposing stance, two-tone colours, sharp LED headlamps and sporty 19-inch alloy wheels. The new Qashqai is bigger and better appointed, with the interior cabin raising
the standard for premium feel, distinctive design and intuitive usability. The premium quilted leather-accented seats with massage function, sophisticated finishes and calm ambient mood lighting are testament to how this vehicle has been crafted with the modern, urban driver in mind.
Built on the alliance CMF-C Platform which represents a state-of-theart automotive structure and technology architecture, the new Qashqai combines a sporty design with an all-round, overall premium packaging that does not compromise on performance, style and function. The goal was to deliver a stronger, lighter car for greater driving performance. The stiffer structure found in the all-new Qashqai offers improvements in advanced agility and ride comfort, whilst the increase in use of aluminium in the bonnet and doors helps reduce overall body weight, resulting in lower fuel consumption.
A SMARTER QASHQAI FOR A SMARTER WORLD
Our customers will get the most out of the Qashqai driving experience thanks to real time navigation info, access to media and entertainment with Bose® audio, traffic updates and real time vehicle information. The Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ interface, with a background inspired by Japanese kiriko glass, boasts an ultra-widescreen high-definition display. Add wireless charging and the latest generation Qashqai offers a more confident and connected experience, than ever before.
MORE ROOM FOR EVERYONE IN EVERY SEAT
The all-new Qashqai offers a more spacious interior than its popular predecessor. Doors open to a generous 90°, allowing for easier entry and exit, while rear knee room, shoulder room and even seat depth, have been increased. Passenger comfort features include rear facing air-conditioner vents as well as dedicated USB Type A and C charging points. Upper and lower tether ISOFIX points, are also standard.
Cargo space is up too, with a total of 1593L with rear seats folded, with various adaptable layout configurations. A family-friendly wipeable luggage board and 60:40 rear split seats allow for maximum flexibility and every day practicality, whatever the requirement.
NISSAN INTELLIGENT MOBILITY
The all-new Qashqai is equipped with advanced safety technologies designed to look out for you, keeping all passengers safe and providing peace of mind. The Intelligent Around View Monitor (AVM), provides a virtual 360° birds-eye view for the confidence to park like a pro every time, and Moving Object Detection (MOD) alerts the driver with audio and visual warnings if movement around the vehicle is detected.
There is also an intuitive and protective Driver Attention Alert (DAA) system – which is intended to address potential driver fatigue and inattention. If the system detects driving behaviour consistent with a drowsy driver, the system uses an audible chime sound and displays an amber coffee cup with a message reading, “Take a break?” in the vehicle’s information display. Lane Departure Warning (LDW) alerts the driver if the vehicle is found to stray outside of the road lines. High Beam Assist and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring system complete this safe and confidence inspiring crossover SUV.
