We were in Vienna, where we tested the new Nissan Qashqai 2019. In the 83 years of Nissan in Europe, Qashqai was by far the biggest commercial success: to date there are about 2.3 million customers who chose it. Let us find out why.
Nissan Qashqai is a glaring example of how daring dare can lead to difficult results to predict. It was 2004 when it was presented at the Geneva Motor Show-the first concept of the car: for the Japanese was to be the worthy heir of Nissan Murano that, in honor of the true, in Italy sold rather little. In 2007, when the first series entered the dealers, it was an explosion of sales. Nissan had brought to Europe what in some respects is the first modern crossover. Qashqai as the nomadic populations living among the Zagros mountain ranges, south of Iran. The idea of the marketing people was to make it possible to move on any soil without the fact that it was too demanding, with a light heart in short.
In the Nissan dealerships have passed ten years and counting only those who bought a Qashqai, 2.3 million of customers. A sensational success, without a doubt the most consistent in the 83 years of Nissan Europe. The advance on time played a key role in this but-for the same reason-Nissan had to get ready when the market started churning out seamless Crossover.
There are not too many things that can be done from the top of 10.3% of the segment conquered in a panorama that-to date-sees more than 23 competitors. You can try a hand shot, a revolution of the model, but it would be a great way to get this one out in parallel and keep the best seller intact. Or you can try to talk to the 2.3 million Europeans who chose this car, asking them what they would like from a new Qashqai. Said, done.
2019 Nissan Qashqai Changes & Specs
To date, with these excellent premises, the restyling of the second series presented to the public in 2014. The lines change, the interiors are more cared for and the soundproofing improves considerably. New Euro 6 engines and a good step forward in terms of driveability have done the rest.
We got lost on the streets of Vienna and its most suggestive surroundings driving the 1.5 Diesel from 110CV, with six-speed manual gearbox and two-wheel drive. On the return instead, we tested the 1.6 gasoline from 163CV, in addition to the automatic transmission CVT in a separate seat.
To the outside, it seems a bit more compact and sharp, although in honor of the true the technical sheet speaks of 17mm of extra length. Good news for those who sit behind and, specifically, to the legs that now find more room to relax. To gain more from the restyling is without a doubt the front, with new optical groups and redesigned air vents to exalt the sportsmanship of the medium. The latter, however, says its compact and sporty thanks to the integrated spoiler and the stylistic arrangements provided by the bumper. The work of Nissan has been precise and in some respects unassailable: it is always Qashqai, on this, there is no doubt, but in accounts made improves evenly in many small aspects.
The most obvious change is, however, to the interior, especially when we go to drive the car in the new setting Tekna +: The finishes are of a high standard, from the leather of the seats enveloping to the three-spoke steering wheel, also revised. The latter could distort the nose to the owners of the old Qashqai for excessive size and heaviness, now completely absent. The internal moldings are appreciated, as well as the wide choice of the fittings with different price positions according to the needs.
It starts from the face, continuing with Acenta, N-Connect, and Tekna, and then reaches the aforementioned top of the range Tekna +.
To change face is also the infotainment, now more fluid in the answers, but mainly connected to a Bose stereo system with eight speakers, at least as far as the richest productions. Well, the steering wheel controls, simpler to operate than in the past.
As for the trunk, Nissan Qashqai has a capacity of 430 liters that become 860 knocking down the seats. Interestingly, the system baptized flexible Luggage Board system, which thanks to dividing panels allows dividing the useful space in different compartments.
Starting from the 2019 Nissan Qashqai will be equipped with a particularly discreet chauffeur, present-at the moment-only on the highway. The Nissan ProPilot regulates the guide taking into account the lane, speed, and traffic. Whether you are in a row to return from the holidays or shipped at cruising speed, the ProPilot manages to maintain the lane and adapt when the car in front of us brakes without notice.
To complete the electronic safety equipment There are several systems, starting from the rear detection of obstacles-designed for reverse-and the recognition of pedestrians in automatic emergency braking. Also present the systems of recognition of the driver’s signage and fatigue, as well as the classic parking aid with camera and sensors and the notice of change of unintentional lane.
We go aboard, we press the Start button and leave. The clutch proves immediately soft with a comfortable progressive cut in the city, able to work well with a change from the excursion rather long but not for this little effective. The soundproofing is the highlight of the Nissan Qashqai 2019, which presents in several points renewed materials just to improve this aspect.
The 1.5 Diesel makes a little feel when we raise the laps, true, but never in an invasive manner. 110CV is enough to move the car with agility and readiness, but on the return-with the 163CV of the gasoline version-the added reactivity allows to drive in a sporty way, attacking the curves just enough to feel satisfied.
A guide that helps us to test the qualities of frame and suspension, the same-of course-that we also find on Diesel. The pitch in the most decisive braking is stabilized quickly, and even the roll is very content when the guide on the Strait imposes several changes of direction. In this situations-but hardly the customer of Nissan Qashqai you will find-you ask for something more to the braking system, for the rest the guide is pleasant and intuitive.
The work of Japanese technicians is appreciated especially after long journeys that leave little fatigued, thanks to the excellent comfort of the cockpit and the softness of the engine, always elastic and ready. It seems now constant to which we will have to get used to, but the importance of design limits also, in this case, the rear view.
The C-pillar is rather voluminous, and together with a rear window not so wide makes the view not really great during parking. It is also true, however, that camera and sensors do most of the work.
After a day with Nissan Qashqai, It seems that the goal of the house has been centered. The car has not been revolutionized, but it improves considerably in different ways-from design to comfort, through electronic aid-keeping the offer of one of the best crossovers in circulation intact.
