Experience Nissan



The Nissan Qashqai is one of the most popular subcompact SUVs on the market, and for good reason. It's pretty, dynamic, and elegant. The Japanese manufacturer's small SUV offers a spacious and very functional interior for its size. Its level of equipment is impressive, and each of its versions offers you value for your money. Finally, the Qashqai offers a balanced engine and a driving experience of great finesse.


What makes the Qashqai so interesting is its upscale and modern side. It's a small vehicle that's associated with an active and urban lifestyle. Its size makes it very interesting for young families or people looking for an agile and versatile vehicle. To top it off, the small Japanese manufacturer's SUV is packed with cutting-edge technologies and practical elements.


I could go over all the features offered by the Nissan Qashqai 2023 with you, but that would spoil the fun of discovering the model for yourself. Instead, I decided to present you with 7 elements that summarize the model well and demonstrate how it stands out from the competition.


1 - 1,730 liters


I hope you understand that this is not the capacity of the fuel tank, but rather the capacity of the trunk once the second-row seats have been folded down. This is well above average and even very similar to what many compact SUVs and even some intermediate models offer. The Nissan Qashqai's trunk remains very spacious even when the second-row seats are used, with a capacity of 566 liters.


2 - 360 Safety Shield


Nissan is one of the manufacturers that take safety very seriously, which is why the Qashqai has a whole arsenal of standard safety technologies. This package includes technologies such as intelligent emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, cross-traffic alert, blind-spot warning, lane departure warning, and high beam assist. Not to mention all the other available safety technologies such as intelligent lane intervention or road sign recognition.


3 - Door-to-Door Navigation System


The Nissan Qashqai is one of the only vehicles in its category whose navigation system can communicate with your phone. In fact, it is possible to transfer information from your phone and create a custom route using an additional application through the Qashqai's navigation system.


4 - Remote Access


Even though this technology is becoming increasingly popular, it is only offered by a minority of vehicles, including the 2023 Nissan Qashqai. This technology allows you to control certain aspects of your vehicle from a smart device such as your phone. You can lock and unlock the doors, and this application also gives you access to remote start.


5 - Divide-N-Hide


I've already told you about the Qashqai's cargo space, but the small Japanese SUV also offers ingenious storage solutions like the Divide-N-Hide system. This is a storage space located under the loading floor that allows you to hide your valuables or simply prevent them from moving too much in the back. This feature is offered as an option and is a must-have in my opinion.


6 - Comfort is standard


The subcompact SUV category is often synonymous with compromises, and that may be the case with the Qashqai, except that the Japanese manufacturer has not sacrificed comfort. Its small SUV has a memory-adjustable system, 2 climate control zones, and front seats and heated mirrors as standard.


7 - Pleasure behind the wheel


Subcompact SUVs often have to compromise on performance in favor of fuel economy, but Nissan has decided to do things differently with the 2023 Qashqai. Its small SUV is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that delivers 141 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque. It's paired with a very sophisticated CVT transmission, and that's the secret behind the Qashqai's dynamic driving experience. Additionally, the Japanese automaker's small SUV has a combined fuel consumption of only 8.0L/100km in certain versions, which is within the good average range.
