New Nissan Qashqai: Premiere Edition sales start

New Nissan Qashqai

After being the protagonist in the official presentation, the new Nissan Qashqai is available in dealerships and to be ordered online, on the official website. However, the launch version of the Japanese automaker's new vehicle will be a limited version, called the Premiere Edition. Thanks to the many features the car is equipped with, it can easily be compared to a high-end version. In fact, there is no lack of accessories characterized by technological innovation and, moreover, it is available with the bodywork in different shades of color. As for the price, it can be purchased starting from 33,870 euros.

As just mentioned, the new Nissan Qashqai will be equipped with various accessories. Therefore, the vehicle will be characterized by the presence of a 9-inch display positioned in the center of the dashboard with an infotainment system, which will be compatible with both Apple Carplay and Android Auto. Instead, the screen in front of the driver will be characterized by the presence of a 12.3-inch TFT multifunction, which therefore replaces the usual dials. The most important driving information, such as speed or navigation, will appear on the windshield thanks to a 10.8-inch Head-Up Display (HUD). There are also 4 USB sockets and a 15W wireless charging system.

With the new Qashqai is also available the ProPilot Navi-Link package and the selective LED matrix headlights, the latter is a technology that allows you to deactivate part of the light projected by the headlights, to avoid dazzling those who are in front but at the same time the surrounding environment is illuminated. Other peculiarities of the vehicle in question are the 18-inch diamond alloy wheels and panoramic glass roof and the two-color paints - Magnetic Blue, Cercamic Gray and White Pearl Brilliang - which create a captivating contrast with the black roof. . The Premiere Edition is equipped with a 1.3 mild hybrid turbocharger, with front-wheel drive, both 140 HP with 6-speed manual gearbox and 158 HP with Xtronic automatic gearbox. Obviously, the two versions will have different prices, in fact for the 140 HP version the price is 33,870 euros, for the other version the price is instead of 37,270 euros.

New Nissan Qashqai hybrid crossover debuts for Europe, previews 2022 Rogue Sport for US

The compact Qashqai crossover is one of Nissan's most popular offerings in Europe, with over 3 million sold since 2007, and the second-generation model was brought to the US in 2017 as the Rogue Sport. Nissan today unveiled the third-gen Qashqai for the European market, and while no specific details of the US-bound Rogue Sport version are out yet, the crossover we get should look just like this new Qashqai. That's a good thing.

I'm not gonna mince words here -- I think the new Qashqai looks freakin' awesome. It's the best application of Nissan's new design language yet, with sharp lines, pretty clean surfacing and lots of interesting details. It fits right in with other newly redesigned Nissan SUVs like the Rogue and Pathfinder, and it takes some inspiration from the futuristic Ariya EV as well. The front end is dominated by the large V-Motion grille and thin LED matrix headlights, and I especially like the Qashqai name stamped into the front fender. Nissan's ubiquitous floating roof design is present too, with five different two-tone finishes available.

On the inside the influence from the Rogue is immediately apparent. It looks a lot more upscale than the previous generation, with nicer materials and more refined design touches. A 9-inch touchscreen has navigation, Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay, and there's a configurable 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. Other available tech includes a 10.8-inch head-up display, smart home connectivity and phone-as-key functionality. The Qashqai is even available with massaging seats!

The new Qashqai rides on Renault-Nissan's CMF-C platform, which also underpins the Rogue and the just-revealed Mitsubishi Outlander. It's 1.4 inches longer than the old model overall, with an 0.8-inch-longer wheelbase, and the new Qashqai is also a little taller and wider. Room for rear passengers has increased, there's a lot more cargo space and the rear doors now open to 90 degrees. It's available with 20-inch wheels for the first time, and models with those wheels (or AWD) get a multilink rear suspension setup. Nissan says the new Qashqai is lighter, stiffer and more fun to drive than the old one.

Two powertrains will be available in Europe at first. The base engine is a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder with a standard mild-hybrid system; it's available with either 138 or 156 horsepower, a six-speed manual or a CVT and front- or all-wheel drive. Even more interesting is the E-Power model, which pairs a 1.5-liter gas engine with an electric motor. As with a car like the Chevy Volt, the engine exclusively generates power for the electric motor, with the front wheels being driven by electricity alone. This setup produces 187 hp, and Nissan says it gives the Qashqai the characteristics of an EV without the need for charging -- it even has one-pedal driving through regenerative braking.

The Qashqai is also available with Nissan's ProPilot suite of driver-assist systems. The adaptive cruise control has stop-and-go functionality, and it uses navigation data and speed limit info to adjust speed accordingly, both in a straight line and around tight corners and exit ramps. The Qashqai also has lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, automated emergency braking that now can detect two cars ahead and a 'flank protection' system that sounds like fancier parking sensors.

As I said at the top of the story, we don't yet know which of the new Qashqai's powertrains and features will make their way to our US-market Rogue Sport. It's probably unlikely that the E-Power model and the more luxurious options like the massaging seats and HUD will be available here, but we're gonna keep our fingers crossed. The Qashqai will reach dealers in Europe in a few months, and the US Rogue Sport should debut within the first half of the year.
