7 Things About the Nissan Qashqai that Perth Wa Drivers Should Know
The 2017 Nissan Qashqai is a popular SUV that is at home in the city and useful for light off road use. This car sits around the upper end of the small SUV segment, and it’s available with either a petrol or diesel engine. There is plenty of choice regarding different variants, and the prices range from $25,990 for the entry model, up to $39,900 for the flagship (prices don’t include on road costs). All of this information may be common knowledge for discerning petrolheads, but there are seven things about the Nissan Qashqai that you may not know.
1. That Name:
The Qashqai name is a weird one, many people pronounce it wrongly, and no-one knows where it comes from. The name originates from a nomadic tribe that can be found in certain isolated provinces in Iran. When you say the name Qashqai, it should be pronounced as “kash-kye.”
2. The Cavernous Boot Space:
The Qashqai has a 430 litre boot that is larger than many of its competitors, such as the Mazda CX-5, the Subaru Forester, and the Mitsubishi ASX. There is also divided storage available under the floor, which is ideal for storing smaller items that need extra security.
3. A More Accessible Boot:
With all that boot space, it’s essential to have easy access to take advantage of it. The boot on the new Qashqai now opens up 230mm higher than the last model, and as a result loading, larger items is easier.
4. Safety is Key:
Every Nissan Qashqai in the range has a 5 star ANCAP safety rating, and standard safety equipment includes six airbags and a reversing camera.
5. The Drivetrain:
All Nissan Qashqai models are equipped with front wheel drive only. This makes it an ideal choice, for use in suburban and urban environments. The turning circle is very small, making the Qashqai easy to park and great for maneuvering in tight spaces.
6. Easier Parking:
The higher specified Qashqai TI and TL variants have a parking assistance feature. This will automatically steer the Qashqai into the parking space for your convenience.
7. The Manufacturing Process:
Although Nissan is a proud Japanese brand name and the Qashqai has an Iranian name, the car is actually made in the UK and exported around the world.
