Engine and Performance
The Nissan Qashqai excels in almost all fields that are essential for consideration. With the Nissan Qashqai, the users get an option to choose from 1.2, 1.4 and 1.6 liter engines in petrol variants while 1.5 and 1.6 liter engines are available in the diesel variants of the car. Although, the 1.2 liter might not sound that efficient to you but its performance is quite commendable in the city. Moreover, if you go with the diesel variants of the car you will surely love its performance. The 1.5 liter diesel variant is highly recommended to the buyers as it is capable enough to return more that 70mpg accompanied by 99g/km CO2 emissions that clearly cuts down your cost of paying road tax. However, if you wish for an automatic gear box or a four- wheel drive, you can opt for the 1.6 liter diesel variant.
The design of the car is completely a way ahead in comparison to Dualis. The 19- inch wheels are commendably designed to fit the arches perfectly which do not give a heavy look to the car. Although, Nissan Qashqai is longer in comparison to Dualis but it features lower slung thereby giving it a better and decent appearance. The users will not only get the advantage of a longer and lower cabin but also from a little more width. There is a plenty of space for legroom and headroom which is accompanied by a glass roof at the top.
The smooth suspension and comfortable driving experience of the car are quite impressive. Surprisingly, the Nissan Qashqai is quite entertaining to drive and handle on twisted roads because of its smooth suspension that resists to heavy steering at speed and body lean which thereby prevents the car from responding to any slight input applied. The technical stability of the car results in braking each wheel of the car separately. The active ride control cleverly and automatically makes use of brakes to reduce to the up and down motion that one experience while driving over a bump.
The users will experience a bit complex interface with the introduction of Google and Facebook integration in the car. You will have to firstly download the Nissan app to get started up with the Google and Facebook integration. The satellite navigation feature is quite easy to use and a slightly detailed one. Moreover, the massive seven- inch screen is known for delivering quality resolution and a decent sound. In addition, the users even get an option to hook up with Pandora using their Android smartphone to play music of their own choice. The complete range of Nissan Qashqai is well equipped with Nissan Qashqai Visia featuring Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning and cruise control.
The entire range of Nissan Qashqai comes up with a complete five star ANCAP rating. The safety features incorporated in the car are inclusive of traction control, six airbags, reversing camera, ABS, stability, load- limited front belts, brake force distribution and assistance. In addition, the around- view camera, blind spot warning, fatigue detection, lane departure warning and moving object detection strengthens the safety aspect of the car.
