The 2017 Nissan Qashqai is going to be one of the most fascinating crossovers in upcoming years. Japanese carmaker is one of the leaders within this segment, and this model could take spot of outgoing Rogue vehicle. Due to the fact of that, we count on redesigned model having a lot of changes comparing to SUV that is going to become replaced. On the other hand, several features will probably be carried more than from Rogue. Qashqai is going to be modern and attractive model, specially amongst younger population. European customers will get this vehicle, at the same time as US buyers.

SUV carries this name since 2014, and prior to that, it was called Dualis. Now, 2017 Nissan Qashqai is going to become built upon P32L platform, which is also utilized by other crossovers within this family. Comparing to that model, vehicle’s body suffered most changes. From front and sides, to rear end, new lines and look is used for Qashqai. Nevertheless, overall appearance is the similar as for the last vehicle, since all these changes are minor. Major change is inside the cabin. Since Qashqai is replacing Nissan Rogue, we expected a good deal of similarities. But, new SUV doesn’t have third row of seats.
2017 Nissan Qashqai Engine
Under the hood of the 2017 Nissan Qashqai is a 1.6-l inline-four powertrain, at the very least for US market. There is no information about drivetrain for European models, as well as for diesel options, hybrids, and so forth. Four-cylinder unit is capable to create 160 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. These are superior numbers for such, compact crossover. There is nonetheless sufficient time to develop more solutions, but it is unlikely that Nissan will make yet another powerplant for compact SUV. Transmission is 6-speed, manual or automatic, and power is sent to front wheels. All-wheel drive mode is probable, but we do not have trusted supply with this information.
