The all-new Nissan Qashqai will cost from £17,595 when it goes on sale in January.
Three engines are available at launch, and all are fitted with stop-start technology. The cleanest engine is a 109bhp 1.5-litre diesel that emits just 99g/km of CO2 and returns 74.3mpg. A punchier 128bhp 1.6 diesel is also available, which will initially be the only engine offered with four-wheel drive.
Buyers who want a petrol only have one option for now; a 113bhp 1.2-litre that emits 129g/km of CO2 with fuel economy of 50.4mpg. A 148bhp 1.6 petrol will join the range in autumn 2014.
The 1.2 petrol and 1.5 diesel engines are only offered with a six-speed manual gearbox. The 1.6 diesel is available with a revised CVT automatic.
The new Qashqai has the familiar four trim grades from other recent Nissan models: Visia, Acenta, Acenta Premium, and Tekna. Entry-level Visia cars – which start at £17,595 for the 1.2 petrol – come with Bluetooth, cruise control, air-conditioning and six airbags as standard.
Upgrading to Acenta trim costs another £1550, so prices for this model start at £19,145. The extra cost adds dual-zone climate control, automatic headlights and wipers, 17-inch alloys and the moveable boot floor.
Visia and Acenta trims are both available with Nissan’s Safety Shield system for £450, which includes technologies like lane departure warning, front collision avoidance and traffic sign recognition.
Acenta Premium trim starts at £20,995 and gets the Safety Shield system as standard. For the extra £1850, buyers also get a seven-inch colour screen infotainment system with digital radio, a rearview camera, panoramic glass roof, plus keyless entry and go.
Range-topping Tekna spec is another £2150 over Acenta Premium. Starting at £23,145, this trim adds roof rails, 19-inch alloys, LED headlights, electrically-adjustable and heated leather seats, park assist, and the full Safety Shield pack with all-round camera system.
