Get Your Cash Ready For Nissan’s New QashqaiWed, 13 Nov 2013
FOLLOWING on from its recent glitzy London unveiling, Nissan has now released pricing and specification details for its hotly anticipated latest generation Qashqai.
When the mid-size SUV goes on sale in January prices will start from £17,595 and rise to £27,845, and buyers will have a choice of four trim levels. Nissan’s engineers have also done much to improve the car’s green credentials, with the result being an engine line-up spanning the 99g/km to 132g/km CO2 range.
Entry level Visia cars benefit from a generous amount of kit, including auto air-conditioning, hill start assist, cruise control and a large colour infotainment screen. Acenta-badged models gain the likes of dual-zone air-con, leather for the steering wheel and gear lever, larger alloy wheels and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
Moving up to the Acenta Premium grade adds digital radio, a rear view parking camera and sensors, a panoramic sunroof, keyless ignition and lane departure warning. The flagship Tekna models add all-round parking sensors, part leather seats, LED headlights , a seven-inch infotainment screen and 19-inch alloys.
A pair of petrol and diesel engines will be available from launch, all boasting fuel-saving stop-start technology. Diesel fans can choose between a 109bhp 1.5 unit and a 128bhp 1.6 motor. Petrol options initially run to a 1.2 113bhp motor and more powerful 148bhp 1.6 unit.
