The Qashqai has been around for 10 years now and Nissan have had to work hard to stay at the top of a market segment they pretty much created for the Qashqai back in 2007. Judging by the looks of the latest version of the Qashqai, they have certainly polished their perch at the top.
Style-wise the Qashqai has been completely overhauled from front to back, including: a more aggressively styled bonnet which flows down to the chrome grille surround, 3D Printed Nissan badge, new light clusters (both front and rear), less black plastic and air diffusers on certain models.
Tech-wise the Qashqai comes fully loaded when you go up the range. The Visia specification is less well equipped in comparison to other vehicles in the range, but it does come with features such as DAB radio, flat bottomed steering wheel, cruise control, USB & AUX input and Bluetooth with audio streaming.
However, if you take a step up to the ever popular N-Connecta model (the Red car below) and you will find it comes complete with: 18″ bi-colour alloys, privacy glass, around view monitor, 7″ Touchscreen Nav System, shark fin antenna, the smart vision pack – plus other features from the Visia and Acenta models. The range topping Tekna+ model (the blue car in the images) adds 19″ alloy wheels, 3D quilted Nappa Leather, Panoramic Glass Sunroof, BOSE speaker system, LED headlights and much more.
Another important consideration for the modern driver is the CO2 produced by their vehicles, Nissan have managed to update their 1.5dCi engine so that it only produces 99g/km CO2 whilst still producing 110 BHP which will no doubt lead it to be the engine of choice for business car drivers.

Green Cars’ is the term used for zero, low and ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) - with pressure being applied to lower global emission levels, the need for “eco-friendly” vehicles is on the rise. Many countries now have plans in place to abolish the use of combustion engines before the turn of the century and so more and more vehicles we see on the roads will be Electric, hybrid or very low emission petrol and diesels.
Although beneficial to the environment, ‘Green Cars’ are also beneficial from a taxation view. The lower a vehicle’s emissions banding, the lower the taxation placed against it. Many manufacturers have tapped in to this ever-growing market with their own offerings, however, Volvo were the first manufacturer to state that every one of their models will be either electric or hybrid options from 2019.
