Nissan Qashqai

The Qashqai is one of Nissan's most popular models ever - in fact, back in October 2015 it became the fastest ever UK-built vehicle to smash the half million production mark, having achieved it in a mere 21 months with a new Qashqai having been built every 62 seconds on the Sunderland factory Line 1.

Now Nissan have announced some changes to their model line-up in an attempt to further enhance the Qashqai range within the cross-over segment by closing the Acenta Premium model and introducing the Qashqai N-Connecta grade as a direct replacement for the existing n-tec and n-tec+ model versions.

Nissan hope that this new N-Connecta grade and the simplification of available trims will make it easier for customers to navigate the available Qashqai models available.

The new N-Connecta range upgrades the standard specifications and offers a range of new option packs to enhance the driving experience.
