Sales start in July.

Earlier this year we spotted Nissan testing a revised version of its Qashqai SUV, and now the Japanese manufacturer is ready to reveal the facelifted model. Europe’s best-selling crossover has been on the market since 2013 and is finally receiving a well-deserved refresh at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

The Qashqai now features a more sophisticated look thanks to a completely revised front end, which includes the latest version of Nissan’s V-motion grille. The headlights have been slightly reshaped and are now even sharper than before – and also incorporate new LED daytime running lights. The headlamps now benefit from an optional adaptive projector technology.

Take a virtual step inside the cabin and you’ll discover a revised dashboard with higher-quality materials and an improved center console. The panel is home of the latest generation NissanConnect infotainment system, which now features a new user interface. Also new is the D-shaped multifunctional steering wheel, where a new four-way controller for the info display is located.

In addition to a number of new exterior colors, the 2017 Qashqai will be available with new 17-, 18-, and even 19-inch wheels, all aerodynamically optimized for maximized efficiency. Despite the new larger wheels, Nissan says, the ride quality and fuel efficiency are not harmed. The crossover retains its class-leading drag coefficient of 0.31, which helps it achieve CO2 emissions of only 99 grams per kilometer with the 1.5-liter dCi diesel engine. No changes in the engine lineup are reported.
