Nissan may be getting a new SUV in the near future thanks to the success of the Nissan Qashqai overseas. This urban crossover is making an appearance at the Detroit Auto Show, which is the first time an American audience has seen the model. The Qashqai has a bold exterior, powerful engine, and some innovative features, all of which is wrapped in a sporty SUV package.
According to Auto World News, the current generation of the Nissan Qashqai design was developed in 2014 for a European audience, and it is especially popular in the UK. This model has state-of-the-art safety systems, including the latest driver assist technologies. It also borrows some of the intelligent engineering features of the Rogue, making the Qashqai crossover truly remarkable.
The Qashqai is often considered by many to be the original crossover, and it has won multiple awards for styling, eco-friendly engineering, and more. In fact, What Car? named the Qashqai the most affordable and most eco-friendly vehicle in its segment, proving just how impressive this model truly is. Though it shares similarities with the Rogue, the Qashqai is a two-row vehicle, with a lighter design and a more compact look.
We can’t wait to see the new Nissan Qashqai on the American market. There’s no word yet if the model will keep its current name, but it’s sure to be popular among car enthusiasts everywhere.
