Normunds Avotiņš: “… and – the engine for the new QQ is unfortunately only one. There are two power versions, but if you want to drive a variator, and it will definitely be, then you have to take the most powerful one. In reality, the new QQ has one engine.”
The widely used 1.33-liter turbo engine develops 138 or 156 horsepower. The 12-volt lightweight hybrid system cleverly masks the turbine’s deceleration as it accelerates and unobtrusively helps to overtake. This saves riders the unattractive roar of the small engine. The variator joystick now moves like a German premium in cars. Stylish!
Normunds Avotiņš: “The new QQ salon could come out the same as most modern crossovers. Everything on one TV and without any physical buttons. Fortunately, Nissan once again had a wise mind that suggested conducting a customer survey. buttons!””
And that’s why the all-new Qashqai has a completely traditional and very neat climate control unit. The touch screen is, as usual, high, and also has direct access keys. Nissan even has a virtual scale panel, but also a design that is as simple as possible and, most importantly, large, easy-to-see numbers.
Normunds Avotiņš: “At the same time, the Nissan Qashqai now has a high-quality 360-degree camera, but the Apple Car Play connects wirelessly.”
The top-of-the-range Qashqai has a very clear head up display – real, not on a small glass. The Propilot semi-autonomous driving system is now connected to the navigation and brakes in good time before the intersection.
Normunds Avotiņš: “The rear axle was knocked on by the first Qashqai. Then it was repaired, but the salon started to” sing “.
And what’s more – previous Qashqai had accustomed us to very sweet prices. The new model will not be so cheap, at least in the beginning.
Normunds Avotiņš: “Initially, such a car with a variator costs almost 30,000 euros. If we want it in the best equipment, we have to take into account 36,000. This is already the level of Hyundai Tucson. But if we want QQ with all-wheel drive, which is also possible, then – EUR 38 000. “
The new Qashqai has a total of five trim levels, from basic Visia to rich Tekna +. Wheel size – up to 20 inches, although the standard size is 17, and the British also thought about the choice of colors. Currently, the most popular is ceramic gray, but we also recommend looking at magnetic blue.
The starting price is 23,350 euros, and most of the extras are packed in thematic packages. Fuel consumption in the test mode was one liter higher than indicated – 7.4 liters instead of six and a half.
In Latvian, there is a word borrowed from the Russian language “overcooked”. “Now every second car manufacturer” overconsumes “their cars. Thus, the new Nissan Qashqai has come out a very modern, but at the same time easy to understand car.
