Nissan launched the current generation of its Qashqai crossover, the company plans to make another U-turn. According to rumors, the next SUV arrives, and it happens very quickly. Designers and engineers are working hard to develop a new machine, with new features and new equipment. At this moment, we have heard that the Japanese automaker is trying to involve the 2019 Nissan Qashqai autopilot. If this happens, it will start a revolution in the automotive industry. Of course, it will not be a smart reader, but on highways and straight routes, very useful system. Nevertheless, this is not the only novelty in the SUV. Fans are not going to listen to see what else it brings.
We expect great things from the new generation Nissan Qashqai 2019 crossover. First, SUV will use a totally different concept. The last major overhaul in 2014 has made this car longer and wider. Now, such changes do not come. The dimensions are the same, but the visual appearance changes. First, we will see a new nose and fascia before. The grille, bumpers and headlights will be more aggressive. The rear end is also being redesigned. The roof have different lines, which makes the new Qashqai more aerodynamic. We expect more use of aluminum and other lightweight materials, carbon fiber, etc.
The 2019 Nissan Qashqai will most likely continue with the same range of engines. There are several units available for this crossover, three gasoline engines and two diesel engines. When it comes to gasoline engines, the basic model comes with a 1.2-liter unit, which is good for about 115 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque. The next is the 1.6-liter unit, which produces 160 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. Finally, there is a 2.0-liter unit, which has a maximum horsepower of 148 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. When it comes to diesels, there is a 1.5-liter unit with 110 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. The other is a 1.6-liter engine, with 130 horsepower and 230 pound-feet of torque.
The 2019 Nissan Qashqai will come somewhere in the second half of next year. The basic model should go around $ 23,000.
