The Design:

The Nissan Qashqai for sale offers a unique design experience. Unlike many SUVs and crossover models, this is more than simply a high riding hatchback. It has an 188 millimetre clearance, which makes it ready to tackle any rougher terrain. The sleek lines make a stylish impact whether you are trekking down a dirt road or cruising the highway.

Inside the Cabin:

The Qashqai cabin provides a comfortable experience for driver and all passengers. The front seats offer a high position for improved visibility. In the rear, there is a generous amount of leg and headroom for even taller passengers. There is also a generous 430 litres of boot space thanks to a space saver spare and the front wheel drive architecture.

The Ride:

The new Nissan Qashqai is obviously at home on crowded urban streets. Despite the spacious cabin, it has diminutive exterior dimensions that allow you to fit into tight parking spaces and negotiate narrow lanes. The impressive suspension and ride height also allow you to ignore any of the bumps and aberrations of the road network with no fuss.


The 2.0 litre naturally aspirated engine is perfectly matched to a CVT which delivers a smooth action and 106 kW of power. This means that you will need to watch yourself as a heavy right foot will have you exceeding city speed limits in no time at all. As the engine hits 3500 rpm, you will notice it really begins to sing. The CVT keeps you in the lower registers to minimise fuel consumption, but with more aggressive acceleration you can open up the rev range. Unless you are in a real hurry, you will find that the Qashqai is happy to putter along at a city friendly, sedate pace.

Drive Experience:

While the Nissan Qashqai can in no way be considered a large vehicle, it offers an unrivalled SUV experience. The model offers superior grip in the corners that you won’t find with larger SUV models. There is very little traction control interference, making it well suited to the demands of the urban jungle. The CVT ensures that the engine keeps ticking along unless there is a severe incline, when it may need to push a little harder. You will find that you won’t feel left lacking power when you need it.
