At CMH Nissan Pinetown, our mission is to ensure that our clients receive the latest version of all vehicles launched by Nissan South Africa.
It’s official; the new third-generation Nissan Qashqai has finally launched in South Africa. Based on first impressions, it was well worth the wait as the refreshed 2022 Nissan Qashqai delivers on all fronts and punches above its weight in more ways than one.
Here is a closer look at the latest addition to the growing Nissan range.
What’s New On The 2022 Nissan Qashqai?
The fresh-faced 2022 Nissan Qashqai is the perfect blend of a hatchback and an SUV. It not only looks the part, but it’s practical, versatile and economical with value for money, especially considering the range of class-leading features.
The new Nissan Qashqai has set an industry benchmark for SUVs with its more muscular stance and sharper exterior with modern and sportier styling, indicative of the design consistency in the Nissan crossover range.
The new Qashqai is built on the automaker’s robust CMF-C platform and weighs up to 60 kg less than the outgoing model. To help with weight reduction — and keep up to date with the latest automotive design trends — the rear hatch consists of composite material – and the front fenders, doors, and bonnet are all aluminium products.
As a result of shedding weight, it delivers a better overall driving experience, and fuel economy and offers more interior space and legroom due to the larger dimensions, i.e. 20mm longer wheelbase, 25mm higher and 32mm wider.
Top Shelf Styling And Features
The new Nissan Qashqai features sleek design lines, an enlarged V-motion front grille and slim LED matrix headlamps with new daylight running lights. It also gets a pair of lean LED tail light clusters. It also gains new alloy wheels with sizes ranging from 17-inches to 19-inches depending on the variant you choose. To help make it stand out even more, the 2022 Nissan Qashqai is available in 11 body colours and five two-tone combinations.
The interior boasts an all-new dashboard design, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and refreshed materials and finishes. The seats are modified for improved comfort, and the new cabin offers more space than ever.
Even the base model Nissan Qashqai Visia (R568,200) looks luxurious with plenty of standard features. It has 17-inch alloy wheels, a push-button start system, a wireless charging pad, cruise control, a 7-inch multifunction display and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system paired with a reverse camera.
The mid-level Nissan Qashqai Acenta model (R639,300) features everything from the base model with auto levelling and high-beam assist, 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, a 360-degree around-view monitor and a significantly larger 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
At the top of the range is the flagship Nissan Qashqai Accenta Plus model (R670,600) with exclusive additions, including premium heated Nappa leather seats with a massage function. It also gets 19-inch alloy wheels, tilts reverse side mirrors and a Bose sound system with 10 speakers.
