2018 Nissan Qashqai Reviewed: Still The King Of Compact SUVs?

Nissan’s best-selling Qashqai has received a mid-life facelift in order to deal with the ever-increasing competition.

The revamp consists of a revised exterior that includes new bumpers, the brand’s V-Motion grille, a new headlamp design that incorporates the DRLs and redesigned LED taillights. New alloy designs as well as new colors have also been added to the range.

The interior is made out of better-quality materials and also features new, more supportive seats as well as a new steering wheel. Nissan has also added more sound insulation, additional sealing around the front doors and a thicker rear glass for better insulation against NVH (noise, vibration and harshness).

Perhaps the highlight of the facelifted Qashqai is the addition of Nissan’s ProPilot semi-autonomous system in the range, which combines the Lane Keep Assist, Intelligent Cruise Control and Traffic Jam Pilot systems.

Those looking for a fun to drive SUV might be left disappointed from the Qashqai, but Nissan’s best-seller remains one of the most relaxing places to sit in when driving long distances.

Are these revisions enough to keep the 2018 Qashqai ahead of the competition? Carwow put one to the test to find out.
