2019 Nissan Qashqai Gets New Turbo Petrol Units, DCT ‘Box And Infotainment System

Nissan has updated the range of the best-selling Qashqai compact SUV with their latest turbo petrol engine, a new dual-clutch automatic transmission and more tech.

The new turbocharged 1.3-litre petrol engine, which was developed in collaboration with Daimler and can also be found in models like the new Mercedes A-Class, replaces the 1.2- and 1.6-liter petrol options. Under the new Nissan Qashqai’s bonnet, the new petrol engine will be offered with two outputs: 138hp (140PS) and 158hp (160PS).

Both versions of the new 1.3-liter petrol Qashqai will be paired to a six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive as standard, with a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic offered as an option in the more powerful 158hp version.

Both versions of the 1.3-liter engine emit as low as 121g/km of CO2 when fitted to a manual transmission, while the dual-clutch 158hp version scores 122g/km of CO2. Fuel economy can get as low as 53.3mpg UK (5.3l/100km) combined for both models. Nissan also claims that the new engines offer improved response and performance, as well as a quieter driving experience and extended service intervals.

Together with the new petrol engines, the updated Nissan Qashqai features the company’s new infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and over-the-air updates. The new system has a seven-inch touchscreen display -the same as before- but now comes with fewer hard keys and new multi-touch capability.

Nissan has also launched a new app for smartphones, called Door to Door Navigation. According to the company, the new app offers enhanced functionality, including planning a route on the phone and send it to the car.

The new Nissan Qashqai will be launched in Europe towards the end of the year.
