The lines of the curved roof already betray sporty agility. The dynamically angled A-pillars meet the roof at its highest point at the top edge of the windshield, from where it then slopes backward in a coupe-like manner. The roofline ends in a subtly sculpted spoiler edge that blends harmoniously with the design of the tailgate. To achieve a bright and friendly cockpit, a large panoramic glass roof was also developed. The proportions of the sports car-inspired glass surfaces emphasize the athletic aura of the overall design: Black likes to compare the cutouts of the front and side windows to the visor of a motorcycle helmet. The silhouette of the QASHQAI follows the movement of the roof and ends in a small triangular window pulled upwards, which was already seen in a very similar way on the Murano. Slightly increased ground clearance In contrast, the high beltline, strong shoulders and pronounced wheel arches suggest inner strength. Typical design elements of an SUV are the almost vertical vehicle nose and the bumpers and side skirts set off in a dark contrasting color. The increased ground clearance also gives a subtle hint of the extended range of applications. Complex yet carefully modeled curves above the wheel arches and on the doors allow light reflections and thus cleverly soften the relatively large metal surfaces.
Slightly wraparound front and rear headlights create a visual link to the QASHQAI's side flanks. The aerodynamically shaped taillights follow the profile of the rear "hips, where they add a striking splash of color. They are split for maximum cargo space width. Are supplemented by a third brake light integrated in the upper area of the tailgate. Headlights with an expressive interior The pentagonal main headlights have an expressive interior design. Four clearly shaped inserts accommodate the side position lights, the main and driving lights and the blue-tinted turn signal bulbs. The fog lamps are mounted further down in the bumper. The "nose of the QASHQAI is dominated by the Nissan logo centrally located in the radiator grille, framed by a U-shaped chrome strip. As a stylistic twist, the U element continues into the hood in the form of two strong longitudinal ribs. This suggests power under the hood. Nissan offers the QASHQAI in a total of eleven colors. Among them are four new ones: Osaka Silver Metallic, a "sharp, icy silver" according to Schwarz, the blue-grey Luna Blue Metallic, Pharaoh Gold Metallic and the very intense Glow Red Metallic. Starting with the higher-priced Tekna and Acenta models, the door handles and rear-view mirror housings are painted in the respective body color instead of black. Format between SUV and Golf class
The size of the QASHQAI lies somewhere between that of a C-segment sedan and a compact SUV. Based on 2.631 millimeters wheelbase is the youngest Nissan 1.606 millimeters high, 1.783 millimeters wide and 4.315 millimeters long. This makes it around 100 millimeters longer than a typical notchback sedan and 150 millimeters shorter than a standard SUV in its class. At the same time it is between 100 and 150 millimeters higher than the Golf, Focus& Co., but 130 millimeters lower than a sporty off-roader. With a ground clearance of 200 millimeters and slope angles of 19.2 and 30.2 degrees, the QASHQAI copes better off-road than its civilian sedan colleagues without wanting to keep pace with true off-road specialists. "These proportions put the QASHQAI in a unique position", explains black. "It offers more space than a sedan, but is also more manageable than an SUV. But customers should not misunderstand it as a serious off-roader. The all-wheel drive serves only to provide better traction and thus greater safety even on slippery surfaces." Powerful contrasts Within the design process, the team kept looking for seemingly contradictory impressions, Schwarz continues. "The result is a seductive vehicle that makes you want to turn around at first sight, but at the same time it looks very robust and enduring. A car that promises both driving pleasure and a feeling of safety thanks to the elevated seating position."
Despite all this, Nissan has also always paid attention to the practicality of the design. The team therefore even compared the QASHQAI directly with the most practical representative from the conventional sedan camp. "In this way, we avoided it falling behind in terms of space and trunk volume", emphasizes Schwarz. Best results in customer survey If the first impression is really always the most lasting, Nissan designers have done a very good job. For the QASHQAI received undivided acclaim from car customers. In comparison to popular competitors from the sedan segment-. In the SUV camp, it was the first choice for the majority of those surveyed. Car customers described it as "self-contained", "different", "bold" and "modern. They also praised it as "powerful", "dynamic" and "safe and also had no problem with the contrasting pair "elegant-stylish and "robust-solid. Design chief Stephane Schwarz concludes: "It is above all the many contrasts from which the new QASHQAI draws its energy. It is eye-catching, but without being too overbearing." INTERIOR Like the exterior, the interior of the QASHQAI was designed to meet the different needs of the driver and passengers. It harmoniously combines different design themes.
Both the exterior and interior of the new Nissan QASHQAI are a fusion of opposing concepts. "In every car, the driver has very different needs than the passengers. This is something that designers don't usually give enough consideration to", regrets Schwarz. "For the QASHQAI, we have therefore designed a cockpit that is strictly centered on the driver, with ergonomics and a distinctly different feel to the lounge-like ambience for the passengers." All the controls in the QASHQAI are grouped around the driver, with a center console that is pulled up sharply to separate him from the front passenger. Seamlessly extending down to between the seats, the center tunnel includes a recess for the handbrake as well as two cup holders and a storage compartment with an integrated armrest that can be slid longitudinally. The instrument cluster and the round display of the on-board computer are positioned directly in the driver's field of vision under a hood-like paneling. Most of the control buttons are ergonomically located in the center console area, either just above the gearshift lever or below the two center fan vents, which are encased in chrome trim rings. Other functions, for example for the cruise control system, are controlled via steering wheel buttons. Probably the most striking control element in the entire QASHQAI cockpit, however, is the rotary switch located in the front part of the center console for activating the ALL-MODE 4×4 drive system. While white LEDs illuminate the clearly drawn analog gauges day and night, a new shade of orange illuminates the trip computer display, the power window switches and the controls for the climate, audio and navigation systems. Ambient (indirect) illumination of the cabin (only in the QASHQAI Tekna) is also in this soft orange, which will also be seen in other new Nissan models in the future. Color and material selection creates contrasts The different zones of the cockpit on the left and lounge on the right are additionally emphasized in the QASHQAI by different surfaces and colors. The dashboard in front of the front passenger has an emphatically smooth "soft-touch" design-In order to give the trunk a more elegant appearance, the designers gave it a striking grain on the left side. While the entry-level Visia version has an all-black instrument panel, the QASHQAI Acenta and Tekna have a two-tone interior with chocolate trim The designers took a similar approach to the upholstery fabrics and patterns. The Visia comes with dark gray fabric seats. An almost entirely black interior. In contrast, the Tekna's black cloth seats have a contrasting black/grey pattern on the center panels. The Tekna's interior, which is also predominantly black, is further distinguished by silver-colored applications on the steering wheel, door handles and gearshift console. Breathable mesh fabric for the center panels of the Acenta seats
By using color on the dashboard, seats and doors, the designers achieved a unique effect in the Chocolat interior: following the example of modern sportswear, the center panels of the seats were given a brick-red "breathing" look Fabric upholstery. Their mesh-like pattern clearly shows up the black base material of the rest of the seat. In addition, Nissan also offers high-quality leather trim for the QASHQAI Tekna as an alternative: in black or chocolate. In keeping with the QASHQAI's sporty potential, the distinctively shaped front seats ensure optimum lateral support when cornering. The 60:40 split-folding rear seat comfortably accommodates two adults and one additional occupant. Incidentally, folding down the rear seat is extremely easy: while the seat base remains firmly fixed, the backrest can be folded down in one easy step, leaving the headrest in place. Sitting higher than in a conventional sedan Thanks to the vehicle's height and a healthy amount of ground clearance, the driver and front passenger in the QASHQAI sit higher than in a conventional sedan, but without actually perching on top of the car as in some SUV models. The seating position is just right to create a feeling of safety and not to detract from the driving pleasure and comfort. Another advantage of the higher roofline is the fact that the occupants sit comparatively upright. This in turn translates into more leg, shoulder and headroom. The trunk capacity is 410 liters, slightly above the level of a Ford Focus, Volkswagen Golf or Opel Astra. With the rear seats folded down, the QASHQAI can even fit up to 1.513 liters into the storage space of the QASHQAI. Thanks to the compact rear axle, the usable width of the load compartment is 1,000 mm.100. Provides a loading height of 778 millimeters.100 and a loading height of 778 millimeters available. This puts the Nissan crossover between the dimensions of a hatchback sedan and an SUV in terms of load height. Plenty of practical storage The glove compartment, which can be cooled by the air conditioning system, can hold up to 14 liters and is large enough to hold up to 15 drinks cans in addition to an integrated sunglasses holder. That's even more than in the previous record holder, the Nissan NOTE, which managed 13 cans. The front door shelves can hold 0.5-liter bottles or an A4-size folder. In contrast, the expandable mesh shelves on the backs of the front seats can even hold books up to size A3. The storage compartment between the seats has a capacity of 3.5 liters, which is enough, for example, for eight CDs. The practical storage compartments are rounded off by a pull-out, four-liter drawer under the front passenger seat (from Acenta). Two cup holders each on the center tunnel. Additionally housed in the fold-out armrest of the rear seat (also from Acenta). Large panoramic roof The fixed panoramic glass roof is still a very rare option for this vehicle segment (standard on the Tekna, at extra cost on the Acenta). With the dimensions 1.040 x 860 millimeters, it extends over both rows of seats and ensures a bright and airy ambience even on overcast days. The laminated glass filters out harmful UV rays. Prevents excessive heating. Additional protection from direct sunlight is provided by a roller blind that extends automatically at the touch of a button. "In designing the QASHQAI interior, we followed the same criteria as for the exterior", emphasizes Stephane Schwarz. "In both cases, the focus was on contrasting themes. For example, the cockpit area has a very technical feel, while the rest of the interior is designed to be more calming and stress-free. The interior reflects the influences of daily life. Not far from our London design center, we experience places as diverse as the posh Mayfair neighborhood or London's rather rough East End. The Nissan QASHQAI perfectly captures such diverse environments." CHASSIS AND POWERTRAIN
Take the best virtues of an SUV, such as traction, high seating position and spaciousness, and combine them with the driving dynamics and comfort of a hatchback sedan. What comes out of this combination? The QASHQAI! The QASHQAI is the first European model on the C-segment platform of the Renault/Nissan Alliance. The wheelbase of 2.630 millimeters gives it an ideal balance between maximum interior space and compact bodywork. Subframe-mounted independent front suspension consists of combined spring/damper units (McPherson), lower control arms and a transverse stabilizer mounted directly on the strut. Thanks to this connection, the body's tendency to roll is significantly reduced in fast-passing curves. For acoustic decoupling of the interior from road noise. Vibrations, the subframe is suspended on elastic rubber mounts. High-performance Sachs shock absorbers further contribute to good handling and balanced suspension comfort. For precise steering and high stability at high speeds, a complex multi-link axle is used at the rear with wheels also individually suspended on a subframe. The compact unit features an aluminum upper strut that saves four kilograms of weight. In order to limit the volume of the trunk as little as possible, the rear shock absorbers are installed at an angle. Other QASHQAI suspension refinements include rebound springs to reduce body roll. The "Ripple Control" developed by Nissan-Dampers. Thanks to additional damping lips, they confidently compensate for minor irregularities in the road surface. The QASHQAI chassis was fine-tuned at Nissan's European engineering centers in Cranfield (UK) and Barcelona (Spain). Depending on the engine and equipment, the QASHQAI is mounted on 16-inch steel or alloy wheels with 215/65 R16 tires. Spherical wheel bolt cladding is a visual eye-catcher on the 17-inch aluminum wheels fitted with 215/60 R17 tires. Power steering reacts to the smallest differences in speed
The Nissan QASHQAI's good maneuverability is enhanced by electric power steering (EPS). When maneuvering, it provides maximum steering assistance; when driving fast, the servo effect is gradually reduced. The system updates every 40 milliseconds and reacts to speed differences of as little as 0.01 km/h. It is designed to suit the habits of European drivers and therefore also offers a clearly perceptible centering effect, which is particularly noticeable when driving on the highway. Powered by a brushless DC motor, the EPS does not require a hydraulic pump. The result is fuel savings of up to 0.11 liters/100 km. To facilitate a perfect seating position, the steering column is adjustable both vertically and axially. Very short stopping distances thanks to powerful braking system Due to its higher center of gravity alone, an SUV automatically draws the short straw when it comes to braking compared to a sedan. The QASHQAI is different: Despite its slightly higher body, its deceleration potential is on a par with conventional C-segment vehicles. This is ensured by a powerful braking system with the components ABS, Nissan Brake Assist, electronic brake force distribution (EBD) and disc brakes on all four wheels. The "brake assist" always ensures maximum deceleration force even under emergency braking, while EBD always distributes braking force optimally between the front and rear axles even under changing load conditions. ALL-MODE 4×4 system The fully electronically controlled ALL-MODE 4×4 drive (only in combination with one of the two 2.0-liter engines) provides more traction and driving stability on slippery or loose surfaces. In normal operation, the QASHQAI is solely front-wheel drive. This reduces friction losses. Saves fuel. Only when the sensors detect slippage on one of the drive wheels is the engine torque fed variably and as needed to the rear wheels via an electronically controlled and electromagnetically actuated multi-plate oil bath clutch in the transfer case. Thanks to the coupling to an electronic accelerator pedal (instead of a hydraulic two-pump system), this takes place in a fraction of a wheel turn. A rotary switch on the center console can be used to select AUTO and LOCK modes in addition to 2WD mode. As the name suggests, AUTO mode is a self-acting program. Once the driver has set it, he can confidently leave the rest to the ALL-MODE 4×4 system. The "brake assist" system is a powerful electronic assistance system that uses sensors and interfaces to the central engine control unit and ABS to detect even the slightest slippage and sends appropriate signals to the transfer clutch. AUTO does not only control what is necessary on asphalted roads, for example when dirt, wet leaves or the first ice make the ground slippery. If conditions become tougher, it is recommended to select the LOCK program. This engages permanent all-wheel drive, with a fixed 57:43 percent drive distribution between the front and rear axles. Advanced electronic assistance systems The ALL MODE 4×4 system forms a closely interwoven electronic safety network with the eighth generation of ESP from Bosch. Supplied with information from various sensors (ABS, lateral acceleration and yaw angle), the standard ESP initiates braking intervention on one of the four wheels depending on the road conditions. As if that weren't enough, the QASHQAI features a CBC (Cornering Brake Control) system. When braking in curves, it controls the brake pressure for each wheel separately in terms of strength and response speed. The EUC (Enhanced Understeer Control) prevents excessive understeer, and the hydraulic fade compensation (HFC) intervenes whenever, for example, the brake pedal suddenly becomes noticeably "longer" on long pass descents in the Alps becomes. Choice of 4 engines Nissan offers the new QASHQAI with four state-of-the-art four-cylinder engines. The two gasoline engines are in-house products; the two turbodiesels are supplied by alliance partner Renault. The entry-level gasoline engine has already made its debut in Nissan's Micra 160SR and NOTE models. For use in the QASHQAI, however, the all-aluminum 1.6-liter has been given another slight power boost: its output has increased by five hp to 84 kW/115 hp; maximum torque has been increased by seven hp to 160 Nm. The gears in this front-wheel-drive model are changed via a manual five-speed transmission. 25 kilograms lighter than the previous 1.6 liter The unit is 25 kilograms lighter than the 1.6-liter gasoline engine previously used by Nissan in various models. Its modern design features include a four-valve head, variable valve timing, multi-point intake manifold injection and continuous intake camshaft phasing. With this engine, the QASHQAI reaches a top speed of 175 km/h and accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 12.0 seconds. Average consumption in the Euro mix is just 6.7 liters/100 kilometers, and the oil change intervals are 30.000 kilometers stretched out. Trimmed for lightweight design and low friction losses The 2.0-liter, which is also trimmed for lightweight construction, is a completely new engine that Nissan is already using on the Japanese market. The performance of this 1.997 cubic centimeter four-valve engine is 104 kW/ 141 hp. Already from 2.000/min, 90 percent of the maximum torque of 196 Nm is available. Using techniques otherwise only used in motorsport, Nissan has once again been able to significantly reduce mechanical friction in both engines. A complex machining method guarantees, for example, absolutely round bores in the cylinder block. Finely polished bearing surfaces on crank-. Camshafts further reduce internal friction losses. Nissan offers the 2,0-Liter-Motor in Germany both with front and with ALL-MODE 4×4 system. The QASHQAI 2.0 4WD runs 192 km/h fast and reaches the 100 km/h mark after only 10.1 seconds; the consumption is with 8.2 litres/100 km. Transmission choices include a six-speed manual or a continuously variable Xtronic CVT automatic with manual shift option. CVT continuously variable transmission offers comfort and fuel economy benefits The CVT (continuous variable transmission) is a continuously variable automatic that, thanks to its design principle, allows for a theoretically infinite number of different gear ratios. As a result, the engine always runs in the ideal speed and torque band, saving fuel and emissions compared to conventional automatic and manual transmissions. However, there are also comfort advantages, especially when driving uphill: If a torque converter automatic would attract negative attention due to hectic downshifts in search of driving power, a CVT maintains constant revs and seamlessly ensures sufficient propulsion. Who made a manual "gear selection" prefers, can also switch to semi-automatic mode at any time. Then the selector lever is moved backwards and forwards to select sequentially between six fixed gears, as on a motorcycle. Second-generation common-rail injection systems Diesel share also continues to rise in the European C-segment. Nissan has therefore in the QASHQAI two strong turbo diesel engines in the offer. Both use second-generation common-rail direct injection systems, which are capable of injection pressures of up to 1.600 bar bring. Even the entry-level version in the form of the 1.5 dCi with 78 kW/106 hp and 240 Nm of torque offers brisk propulsion thanks to four-valve technology. The engine (internal designation K9K), praised for its low fuel consumption and low running noise, complies with the Euro 4 emissions standard, is compressed in a 15:3 ratio and benefits from a turbocharger with variable blade geometry in the lower speed range. Driving performance is correspondingly brisk: 0-100 km/h in 12.8 seconds, top speed 174 km/h. The consumption of 5.4 liters/100 kilometers marks the best value in the entire QASHQAI program. Shifting is via a manual six-speed transmission. 2.0 dCi with piezoelectronically controlled direct injection The 2.0 dCi engine above it is a real bundle of high-tech features. This is because here the diesel fuel enters the combustion chambers via six-hole injection nozzles with piezoelectronic actuation. This gives the most powerful QASHQAI engine 110 kW/ 150 hp and a top torque of 320 Nm. The measured values – a top speed of 190 km/h and 10.9 seconds from zero to 100 km/h – are correspondingly impressive. The innovative injection technology is clearly demonstrated by the injection cycle, which is divided into five phases: First, two pre-injections eliminate the diesel's notorious nagging noise when idling. After the main injection, two targeted post-injections then burn off the remaining soot particles, making a decisive contribution to reducing emissions. With the aid of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), nitrogen oxides (NOx) are also effectively reduced. The 2.0 dCi engine will be available from June 2007 and will then automatically be equipped with a factory-installed diesel particulate filter. Shortly afterwards (July/August), the 1.5 dCi model also benefits from DPF technology. Of course, the environmentally friendly compression-ignition engines can already be ordered today. Diesel particulate filters regenerate periodically In both cases, the filters detoxify according to the so-called periodic regeneration principle. If a certain amount of particulate matter has accumulated, the exhaust gas temperature is briefly heated to an extreme level with the aid of an additional post-injection system. Consequence: the stored pollutants burn off. The regenerated filter can do its job in full again. But acoustically flawless performance was also close to the hearts of Nissan engineers. The lower section of the 2.0 dCi engine has been reinforced with an aluminum base plate; two counter-rotating balancer shafts also successfully combat crankshaft vibrations. On the transmission side, customers of the 2.0 dCi have the alternative between a manual six-speed box or a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission. EQUIPMENT What's the point of a nice extra if it's hardly ever used?? At Nissan, the principle applies that only truly practical solutions find their way into the cockpit. If a feature is only used as long as the new car is considered a new toy, it stays out from the start. Like other recent Nissan models, the new QASHQAI offers a wealth of innovative and practical solutions. An example of this is the heating and ventilation system. The either manual or fully automatic (dual-zone) air conditioning system has an additional outlet nozzle on the top of the instrument panel, which provides a cool and draught-free all-round breeze in the cockpit in a mild and quiet manner and can be individually adjusted. Wireless thanks to Bluetooth Another element of great practical value is the Bluetooth interface for cell phones. All QASHQAI models are also automatically Bluetooth-compatible. A high-quality microphone located close to the rearview mirror ensures high voice quality; incoming calls can be heard over the on-board loudspeaker system. During the duration of the phone call, the audio source is automatically hidden. As if that were not enough, the name of the caller is shown on the radio display; in addition, there is an internal telephone directory that stores up to 40 numbers. While driving, the QASHQAI owner's cell phone can therefore be safely left in the handbag or sports bag When the ignition is switched on, its presence is automatically detected by the system. Depending on the model, the audio equipment ranges from a radio/CD combination with four speakers to a system with six speakers and a six-CD changer integrated in the center console that can also play MP3 tracks. The audio functions in the QASHQAI are controlled via buttons on the steering wheel. Intuitive navigation system The array of state-of-the-art communications technology also includes the DVD-based satellite navigation system. The system, first introduced by Nissan in the Pathfinder, is intuitive to use and has the road networks of 26 European countries stored, including Poland, Slovenia, the Canary Islands, Croatia and Hungary. The fixed display (7 inches) benefits from improved graphics and a "split screen"-Display. In addition to the map, it also displays 3D bird's-eye views of important intersections or junctions. The system can also be controlled by voice input (in seven different languages). Rear view camera with auxiliary lines In the package with the navigation system, Nissan delivers the QASHQAI with a rear-view camera that automatically switches on when reverse gear is engaged. Various guidance lines are displayed on the color screen to enable parking with millimeter precision. To ensure that the instruments are always easy to read, the analog circular displays are also illuminated from behind during the day. The round display of the on-board computer, located between the speedometer and tachometer, shines in a rich orange that contrasts with the white LEDs of the other instruments. The computer provides information on average fuel consumption and speed, driving time and range, and outside temperature, among other things. The time and service interval are also shown digitally in a separate display, as are the odometer and trip meter. The same orange as in the display of the on-board computer, Nissan has also chosen for the atmospheric lighting of the interior (in the Tekna) and for the large number of illuminated switches and buttons. Safety was the top priority The QASHQAI's active safety features include ABS with BAS (Brake Assist), EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution) and a state-of-the-art ESP (Electronic Stability Program). The passive safety system is based on a total of six airbags. In addition to two-stage (adaptive) airbags for the driver and front passenger, side airbags installed in the front seats and curtain bags extending along the entire length of the interior ensure the best possible protection even in the event of side collisions. Three-point seat belts are fitted on all five seats, with additional pyrotechnic belt tensioners and belt force limiters at the front. In the event that the QASHQAI is hit from behind in a rear-end collision, the active head restraints on the front seats counteract the infamous whiplash injury. The glass of the large panoramic roof is laminated and therefore strong enough not to shatter in the event of a rollover. The passenger airbag can be deactivated via a lock if a child seat is installed on the front passenger seat against the direction of travel. An acoustic warning tone and indicator lights remind seat belt users to buckle up. Rain sensor, automatic headlights and intelligent key Other comfort and safety features of the QASHQAI include a rain sensor, automatic headlights and an automatically dimming interior mirror (standard from Acenta). In the top Tekna version, the Intelligent Key (wireless transponder in the form of a remote control) is also standard equipment. If the owner approaches within arm's length of the QASHQAI, it can confidently remain in the trouser pocket or handbag. The door or trunk can be opened from this distance simply by pressing a button on the door handle or on the tailgate. The Intelligent Key can also remain hidden on the inside. Once the vehicle has been identified, the engine can be started using only a rotary switch on the steering column. The electronic immobilizer, on the other hand, falls under the topic of theft protection. The automatic locking of the doors after driving off (from a speed of 25 km/h). On models without a rearview camera, optional sensors in the rear bumper make parking easier. Visia, Acenta and Tekna trim levels meet every need Nissan is offering the new QASHQAI in familiar Visia, Acenta and Tekna trim levels. Even the entry-level version offers the full safety package with ESP, ABS, EBD, BAS and six airbags. Also included are power-adjustable outside mirrors and windows, manual air conditioning, a radio/CD combo with Bluetooth interface, a trip computer, sliding arm rests between the front seats, a height-adjustable driver's seat and 16-inch steel wheels with alloy wheel design covers. Already in the Visia, the functions of the on-board computer are. The audio system with buttons operated from the steering wheel. The volume model Acenta can be recognized from the outside by the exterior mirrors and door handles painted in body color, fog lights and 16-inch alloy wheels. Inside, it features a leather steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control and lumbar support for the driver's seat. In addition, as already mentioned, there are the safety features rain sensor and automatic driving lights. The top Tekna version also shines with leather upholstery, xenon headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, Intelligent Key, heated seats, parking assist, panoramic glass roof, illuminated makeup mirrors, and a six-CD changer. The DVD navigation system including TMC function (Traffic Message Channel) and the rear view camera are part of the Executive package available for QASHQAI Acenta and Tekna.
