The new Nissan Qashqai will be launching in Australia in early 2022. Although unmistakably Qashqai in its styling, the third generation is more toned, sharp and modern. In its details, the styling reflects Nissan’s global design language, notably the V-Motion grille and floating roof.

As with the two previous generations, the design for the all-new Nissan Qashqai was developed by Nissan’s European Design Studio in London and will be built at Nissan’s Sunderland factory in England.

Qashqai’s body stance is aimed to give it a purposeful look, with prominent shoulder lines, an extended wheelbase and imposing alloy wheel designs.

The wheelbase of the car has increased by 19mm with the overall length increasing 31mm. There’s a significant increase in height (30mm) and its width by 29mm. The idea is to give it what Nissan calls, “improved presence on the road”.

The front end of the all-new Qashqai sports an enlarged Nissan V-Motion grille. This is flanked by slim, full LED advanced matrix headlamps with boomerang signature daylight running lights.

New Qashqai will be available in eight body colours with five two-tone combinations. The black roof option is available with Ivory White, Magnetic Blue, Fuji Sunset Red and Ceramic Grey. There is also a Ceramic Grey roof option paired with a Pearl Black body colour.

The panoramic glass roof, has been a popular on previous-generation models and will feature on the upcoming new one.

The all-new Nissan Qashqai will be launched in Australia in early 2022. We will receive further details from Nissan Oz and bring you them to you immediately. And follow that up with a comprehensive road test.
