New Nissan in 2018-2019 replenished with the updated Nissan Qashqai. In the review, the price in Russia and the equipment, photos and video, the technical characteristics of the Japanese compact crossover Nissan Kashkay, survived the planned restyling. The official public premiere of the new Qashqai took place in the framework of the Geneva Motor Show in 2017 , European sales of the new car will start in July. But the Russian motorists updated Kashkay will have to wait at best until the autumn, while at the plant Nissan Manufacturing Rus near St. Petersburg, the conveyor will be adjusted for local assembly of restyled versions of Nissan Qashqai. According to preliminary information, the price of the updated Nissan Kashkay will not change in comparison with the pre-reform versions of the model, and will amount.
Immediately we note that the planned restyling of the Japanese compact crossover, which holds the leading positions in the class (in Russia, according to the results of 2016, 18723 copies were sold and more than 233 thousand in Europe as a whole), is generally of a cosmetic nature. It should be noted that since the beginning of sales in 2007, the new model Nissan Kashkaya has sold around the world with a circulation exceeding 2.3 million copies.
The new Nissan Qashqai 2017 model year got a more modern look, a trimmed and modernized interior with new trim materials, as well as previously unavailable options and even an autopilot (ProPilot system). In the technology of innovations is not observed, with the exception of the upgraded steering and suspension, providing more stable controllability of the crossover.
The front part of the body is completely new. In the presence of the new proprietary falshradiator grille “V-Motion” composed by designers, deep entering the bottom edge of the new bumper with rich relief, aerodynamic chips and horizontal fog lights, new adaptive headlights with stylish strokes-boomerangs of LED daytime running lights, a hood with more Expressive ribs. The updated Qashqai in the front became even more like the older brother of the Nissan X-Trail .
The rear of the body has changed less so. Slightly corrected the shape of the bumper, the dome light bulbs with LED filling got a more expressive and deep 3D effect.
The color palette is expanded by the manufacturer due to two new enamel colors – Vivid Blue and Chestnut Bronze, new alloy wheels R17, R18 and R19 are offered with stylish design.
Designer modifications, which changed the front part of the body, allowed to reduce the coefficient of the front wind resistance to a value of 0.31 Cx.
The updated interior of the compact crossover Nissan Qashqai has changed minimally in comparison with the interior of the pre-reform model. There are more quality materials for finishing, new soundproof materials are used, thicker rear windows are installed, a steering wheel with a rim cut from below is installed. Multimedia system NissanConnect acquired a new interface, and as an option offered audio Bose with 7 speakers. For the maximum configuration Tekna + new chairs with Nappa leather trim are available.
The most important thing, in our opinion, is the property of restyling Kashka – a system ProPilot (autopilot), capable of automatically steer, accelerate and brake the crossover, that’s just a pity that only within one band. From new electronic assistants we pay attention to system Rear Cross Traffic Alert, for the first time installed on this model.
As a paid option, the upgraded Intelligent Emergency Braking system with Pedestrian Recognition, Traffic Sign Recognition and Driver Attention Alert, Intelligent Park Assist and Intelligent Around View Monitor, Blind Spot Warning and Lane Departure Warning are offered.
