Nissan UK has announced competitive a base price below £18,000 for the 7-seater Qashqai+2.

Nissan Qashqai+2, the 7-seater crossover vehicle, will soon be at United Kingdom showroom floors. The date is the 18th of September 2008 and pricing begins at a highly competitive £17,199. Qashqai+2 was first seen officially at the British International Motor Show where it caused a minor sensation by not only extending the last row of space into a seating compartment, but also enabling these to fold down flat and keeping normal loading space where the boot lies. As seen in the pictures, third seating row is really only as good as the height of its occupants, in this case they need to be either very young or had naturally stopped growing tall at 10 years of age. Nevertheless Qashqai+2 is 38mm taller, 210mm longer and has a wheelbase stretched by 135mm over its ’normal’ sibling. Quite a bonus for its large female following who appreciate the ride height, specs and space utilisation.

Moreover that panoramic roof comes as standard piece of equipment, handy if closed skies and wide views are your thing. The car comes in 2.0-litre diesel or petrol choices, CVT gearbox option for the petrol, FWD standard and ALL-MODE 4WD. Other nice-to-haves for all models include Bluetooth connectivity, a CD music system, air conditioning and six airbags. Equipment levels increase with the three model trim levels of Visia, Acenta and Tekna.
