Qashqai fills a need for singles and couples who want the space and versatility of a CUV, but also desire a smaller overall size for urban maneuverability like a passenger car.
Nissan capped off its Year of the Truck celebration by unveiling what should be one of its most popular vehicles when it hits the market later this year, the all-new 2017 Nissan Qashqai. With the introduction of the Qashqai, Nissan now, more than ever, offers one of the most extensive lineups of sport utility vehicles on the market.
2017 Nissan Qashqai: Nissan’s New Compact SUV
In the United States, the Qashqai is actually called the Nissan Rogue Sport, and that’s because the compact SUV is closely related to Nissan’s best-selling SUV. The 2017 Qashqai will slot between the Rogue and the smaller Juke in the Nissan lineup. It will provide consumers with a fuel-efficient yet fun-to-drive alternative if you do not need all of the Rogue’s cargo space, but you do require a bit more practicality like the Juke has to offer.
Compared to the Rogue, the 2017 Qashqai is shorter which means improved maneuverability in the city and when parking. On the other hand, you still get up to 1,730 liters of cargo space which means that the new Qashqai can still handle anything you need to transport.
In order to keep you safe, the 2017 Nissan Qashqai will be available with a host of active safety features, which include forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection, an active cruise control system, rear cross-traffic alert and automatic braking.
Plenty of Power in the 2017 Nissan Qashqai
The 2017 Nissan Qashqai will be powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 141 horsepower and that can be paired with either a six-speed manual transmission, or Nissan’s continuously variable XTronic CVT automatic transmission.
There will be three versions of the Qashqai when it arrives in Canada in the spring: S, SV and SL.
"The new Qashqai is a great complement to the Nissan CUV lineup," said Bert Brooks, Senior Manager, Product Planning, Nissan Canada Inc."While Rogue has been a great success and will continue to appeal to owners with young families, Qashqai fills a need for singles and couples who want the space and versatility of a CUV, but also desire a smaller overall size for urban maneuverability like a passenger car."
