2019 Nissan Qashqai is one of the most attractive crossovers in past few years, which supported by very attractive price make this car more interesting to younger buyers. However, the manufacturer decided to not change a lot this version, so we actually have the same model as the first version of it was released back to 2013.
It is for sure that the manufacturer will not change a lot in the design of 2019 Nissan Qashqai. It will be made on the same SMF modular platform, with almost the same features and details. The main change could be removing rear wheel brakes, which made the driving heavier. Among other attractive features is massive front grille, with a recognizable logo and chromatic sign across it and wide air intake below it. The rear end is rounded and boxier, with modernized rear lights and wide rear bumper. The roof sloping to the rear end, so the car is more compact.
Although the cabin in Qashqai before has not been quite interesting and attractive, 2019 Nissan Qashqai could be much more attractive than before. The reason is an obvious change in design, where it has a larger center cluster and new modern details. The steering wheel is also redesigned, so now looks more like on Micra. The largely centered dashboard could make driving easier and help the driver without distracting. The other equipment is not known by now, but we expect the same things like before.
The main change in new 2019 Nissan Qashqai forms the last model is dropping of a 1.5-liter diesel engine as well as a 2.0-liter petrol engine. However, there will be a diesel engine offered, and there are high chances that could be a 1.6-liter model with 130 horsepower of strength. Other engines could remain the same in this version. That means that new Qashqai will have 1.2-liter four-in-line turbocharged petrol engine with 130 horsepower. There will be a version like 1.6-liter four-in-line turbocharged engine with 160 horsepower and possibly version with 200 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. All engines should be offered with CVT transmission, which was available only in some versions before.
2019 Nissan Qashqai Release Date and Price
When it comes to the market, 2019 Nissan Qashqai will cost around $20,000, which is very competitive in the class. When we talk about the competition, it is worth to mention the models in the same class according to the price like Mazda CX-5, Acura MDX, Honda CR-V, Volkswagen Atlas and perhaps BMW X1. Releasing date is expected in the second half of the year.
