Nissan Qashqai 2022 Detail, Prices, Specifications & Dimensions

 

Excellent news for car enthusiasts as Nissan Australia has again reinforced its position as the leader in Europe by unveiling its latest variant of third-generation Qashqai. Nissan has officially confirmed the upcoming model’s specifications and trim level before its early 2022 launch. Qashqai had seen a successful career since its launch in 2007, and as reported by Nissan, more than three million units of Qashqai have been sold by now. Over the 13 years, Nissan Qashqai has proved to be the absolute winner. This new design of Qashqai is unmistakably more muscular, sharp, and modern, ready to give its rival tough competition.

What’s New for the Nissan Qashqai 2022?

The all-new variant of Nissan Qashqai has better looks, better space, and better technology than ever before. This third-generation is very much recognizable as Qashqai but with some noticeable tweaks. It features a more prominent V-Motion grille finished in chrome with slim LED headlamps. Along the side, there’s a single fast line that makes the car more athletic and dynamic. The new 20-ich diamond-cut alloy wheels, introduced to Qashqai for the first time, accentuate the aesthetics of this car and contribute to the vehicle’s robustness on the road. The third generation of Qashqai is available in 11 colors with five two-tone combinations, giving the customers a palette of 16 colors to choose from.

The latest Qashqai is based on a new platform that allows designers to make the car bigger than before. It is longer, wider, and higher with a longer wheelbase compared to its previous-gen iteration.  The vehicle has extended about 31 mm in length, 29 mm in width, and 30 mm in height. These extensions have made the car more spacious than ever. With an increase of 50 liters in the boot, the Qashqai offers a generous volume of 480 liters for luggage. The boot has side storage compartments and features a luggage board divider and easy latches to drop the rear seats.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The all-new Qashqai offers a variety of options for powertrain configuration to cater to every customer requirement. You can choose between 2WD and 4WD, 6-speed manual or Xtronic transmission, and a pure-electric driving system.  The new Qashqai uses a 1.3-liter turbo petrol four-cylinder engine shared with several Renault and Mercedes Benz products in the European market. However, this new SUV is paired with a mild-hybrid system.

The most interesting Qashqai engine is the new hybrid which uses a 115kw 1.5-liter petrol four-cylinder not to drive the car but solely to generate electricity for a 140kw/330nm electric motor. The Qashqai e-power hybrid always goes on electric power. Still, that electricity is caused by a petrol engine that can operate continuously at its ideal revs for maximum efficiency.

The new Qashqai 2022 is equipped with state-of-the-art next-generation ProPilot driver assistance. This system is specifically designed to reduce stress and fatigue while driving. This system has control over your accelerator and brake, and it can accelerate the vehicle to cruise at a set speed and bring the car to stop entirely in heavy stop-start traffic.  However, this feature only comes with the Xtronic transmission.

The Interior and Comfort of the car

The interior of the all-new Qashqai sets a standard for a premium feel, distinctive design, and enhanced usability. The cabin of this new variant is comfortable and commanding, creating a calming environment by featuring new white ambient lighting throughout the cabin. The ease of use in Nissan Qashqai is worth noticing as Nissan has resisted the temptation of using control embedded in a LED display hence making it easy for the user to access often-used functions.

Infotainment and Connectivity

 

The new variant of Qashqai comes with an advanced infotainment system with a plethora of connected services like the integration of smartphones, in-car WIFI for up to seven devices. This larger and high-resolution display screen is compatible with Android and Apple, a digital gateway to navigation, entertainment, and other vehicle control.

Specifications

Nissan is offering the new Qashqai in various engine options. It comes in a 1.3-Litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces 138-156 hp with mild hybrid assistance. Nissan Qashqai 2022 also comes with an e-power system that uses a 1.5-liter petrol engine to generate electricity for the electric motor. Front-wheel drive is a standard for the Qashqai, but Nissan has made the car available with the option of all-wheel drive.
