Nissan already offers a full range of sport utility vehicles, but as of this spring the Japanese manufacturer will have one more with the arrival of the 2017 Nissan Qashqai, a subcompact SUV that will fit between the smaller Nissan Juke and the popular Nissan Rogue. Smaller than the Rogue, the new Qashqai promises to be quite versatile in spite of its compact dimensions while also offering impressive fuel economy numbers and an overall dynamic and agile drive.
Lots of equipment in the new 2017 Nissan Qashqai
The Nissan Qashqai features dynamic styling that will not go unnoticed. Taking up some elements of the Rogue, the Qashqai will be offered with a choice of 10 colors and can even be equipped with 19-inch wheels. Inside, it emphasizes versatility and space while featuring a host of connectivity and comfort features.
The 2017 Nissan Qashqai will include leather seats, heated seats, a navigation system, a keyless entry system with push-button start, NissanConnect connectivity technology, dual zone air conditioning with a rear outlet, remote starter, and much more. Standard, it receives a Bluetooth system with text messaging assistance, a rearview camera, and USB and auxiliary jacks for the audio system.
It will accommodate 648 liters in the trunk with all the seats in place, and 1,730 liters with the rear seat folded down.
On the safety side, the new Nissan Qashqai also impresses with advanced driving assistance technologies such as a blind spot monitoring system, automatic emergency braking system with pedestrian detection, lane change warning, intelligent cruise control and more.
