Nissan Qashqai Review 2022
Published 4 July 2019
The Qashaqai was first introduced by Nissan back in 2007 and remains one of the most popular family SUVs.
The third-generation Nissan Qashqai marks a radical departure in all measures from its strong-selling predecessors, ushering in a new platform, a bold new look and hybrid-only powertrains.
The third generation Qashqai offers petrol mild hybrids only.
Qashqai’s new 1.3L petrol mild-hybrid powertrain features a lithium-ion battery which stores energy recovered during braking to reduce emissions whilst driving and gives smoother stop start functionality.
The mild hybrid powertrain is available with both 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
The 1.3-litre petrol engine with its 12-volt mild-hybrid system offers efficiency of up to 53mpg and 142g/km of CO2.
The lithium-ion battery powers the vehicle’s electrical systems instead of the engine at speeds below 11mph (under certain operating conditions), helping to save fuel.
The Qashqai comes with all the advanced technology you would expect from a new car.
The N-Connecta comes equipped with a nine-inch NissanConnect touchscreen as standard, which is an option for Acenta Premium.
Wired Android Auto™ and wireless Apple CarPlay® allow passengers to connect their phones and apps directly to the car system.
With handy wireless phone charging, rear USB ports and in-car WiFi available on subscription, passengers can keep their devices charged and connected on the go.
And for music buffs, the Tekna+ also comes with a premium Bose® sound system with 10 speakers.
Interior Space and Storage
Improved leg room for the rear seats means that passengers of any size and age can sit comfortably, even on long journeys.
Now boasting up to 1,621 litres of interior space – including 504 litres of boot space – there’s room for as much luggage and kit that your family could need.
A clever boot floor arrangement and the two luggage boards (standard from N-Connecta) allow you to choose between 16 different boot configurations, whilst the hands-free power tailgate (standard from Tekna) makes it simple to open.
The rear doors now also open up to an impressively wide 85 degrees, so it’s much easier to load child seats or reach inside to strap in your kids.
Features include Intelligent Cruise Control, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Rear Automatic Braking, Emergency Lane Keeping and Intelligent Forward Brake to help keep you and your family safe.
From Tekna, Adaptive Driving Beam Technology is added, offering maximum visibility whilst automatically adjusting your high beams to avoid dazzling oncoming drivers. ProPILOT helps you to keep in your lane and maintain a safe distance from the car in front, with a Navi-Link feature that connects to the Qashqai’s TOMTOM navigation to anticipate changes in speed limits and other conditions ahead.
