Nissan has upgraded its Qashqai range to feature stop/start on its 1.6 petrol variants and revisions to its 1.5-litre dCi engine.
In the diesel line-up every model now has diesel particulate filter technology with the addition of DPF to the 1.5-litre dCi engine. Output has increased from 105bhp to 108bhp.
All engines in the Qashqai and Qashqai+2 ranges are now compliant with Euro V emissions regulations.
Representing over 40% of Qashqai sales, the 1.6 petrol Qashqai will now benefit from a slightly increased torque output of 156Nm to 158Nm. Stop/start technology on the 1.6 petrol is available for a £200 premium over standard models.
Nissan’s n-tec trim grade has also been updated with more standard equipment, including Nissan Connect (an advanced combined satellite navigation and audio system), a colour reversing camera, a panoramic glass roof, privacy glass and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The Japanese manufacturer has also made a Chrome Pack optional for £250 to add chrome door handles, chrome fog lamp surrounds and chrome side strips. Inside, the pack also includes door and tailgate entry guards and carpet mats.
Available to order from Nissan’s UK dealer network now, first deliveries of the Qashqai and Qashqai+2 Model Year 11 will begin in October.
