Nissan Qashqai 2010 – First photos UPDATE: Models and Prices

The Facelifted 2010 Nissan Qashqai

Updated at the bottom with full Price and model detail for 2010.

Last month we revealed that the 2010 facelift for the Nissan Qashqai was actually running ahead of the original plan, and instead of a Summer launch  as we first thought, Nissan now plans to have the 2010 Qashqai on the roads in March.

We reckoned that Nissan would release first details on the facelifted Qashqai early this month, so we’re pleased to see that we were bang on the money with the first pictures of the 2010 Qashqai dropping in to our inbox this morning.

Most noticeable of the changes – as you would expect from the camouflaged shots we saw earlier – is to the Qashqai’s nose. The whole front end gets a cosmetic workover for a much more aggressive visage. The back end gets LED lights and there are some new 17″ Alloys plus a  couple of new colour options. The suspension has also had a tweak to improve handling.

Nissan are obviously going to drag the changes to the Qashqai out over a few days/weeks, as we don’t have pictures of the interior yet (apart from the instrument panel). However, we know that the Qashqai will have upgraded trim and a new instrument panel with an LCD screen. Nissan have also been working on making the Qashqai’s cabin a quieter place to be.

Engine options are to remain unchanged, although there will be an ECO Qashqai – powered by the 1.5 litre Turbo diesel – which will get the usual Eco-tweaks such as low rolling resistance tyres, lower suspension, longer gearing, irritating gear-change light etc.

As we said before, the 2010 Qashqai will hit the roads in March. And we’ll no doubt have another update soon when Nissan decides to let us have pictures of the interior.
