Unveiled Nissan Qashqai facelift

Nissan Qashqai

The fresh makeover brings the Qashqai SUV in sync with the Ariya EV’s style.

The Nissan Qashqai just got a major makeover, and it’s like it’s stepped straight out of a futuristic movie. Taking cues from its electric cousin, the Ariya, this SUV is all about efficiency and style. Think sharp lines and a fierce new front end that’s reminiscent of those badass Japanese samurai helmets. And hey, this ride was already a hit – it snagged the title of the UK’s top-selling car in 2022 and came in a close second in 2023. Now, with its bold new look, it’s ready to turn even more heads on the road.


  1. The new Qashqai facelift draws inspiration from the sleek and powerful aesthetics of samurai design.
  2. They’re keeping the 140hp and 150hp mild-hybrid engines, along with the 190hp hybrid powertrains.
  3. The infotainment system also receives updates.

The front lights on this car have a cool design – they’re split into three parts. The daytime running lights sit on top, kind of like horns above the main headlights which are shaped like eyes. It’s a neat look! The grille in the front is bigger now, and it’s got this sleek black and silver chrome finish. They say it’s inspired by the armor worn by ancient Japanese soldiers, which is pretty interesting.

As for the back of the car, they’ve swapped out the old lights for new LED ones that match the style of the front ones. And they’ve tweaked the bumper too, giving it a sportier vibe. Overall, it’s a fresh update to the car’s appearance!

Nissan spilled the beans on what they’re aiming for with the latest update: better efficiency and smoother rides. They’ve made some tweaks, like beefing up the windows to cut down on wind noise while cruising. And they’re keeping up with the electric trend—the Qashqai lineup is all about hybrids now, with options ranging from 140hp and 150hp mild-hybrid petrol engines to the more potent 190hp E-Power full hybrid.

The digital systems in the Qashqai got a serious upgrade! They’ve juiced up the computers behind the scenes, so now everything looks sharper and runs smoother. The infotainment system got a major boost too. It’s now rocking a much beefier computer, which opens the door to using Google’s Android Auto operating system on the fancier trim levels. What does that mean for you? Well, certain apps can now run directly on the system, and you can see them right on your instrument panel. Cool, right?

Nissan has really upped its game when it comes to security features for the Qashqai. Now, with the Nissan Connect app, you can keep tabs on your car’s whereabouts in real-time. If, heaven forbid, it gets swiped, you can quickly notify Nissan, your insurance company, and the proper authorities. And get this – there’s even an option for remote immobilization through a subscription service. This means that if the worst happens and your car is stolen, a call center can work with the police to shut it down while it’s still on the move. Talk about peace of mind!

Introducing Nissan’s SUV lineup tailored for India!Top of Form

Nissan has been eyeing an entry into the Indian market with its Qashqai SUV. There have been sightings of it being tested in the country, but there’s still no official word on when it’ll hit the roads here. However, in the meantime, Nissan is gearing up to introduce two new SUVs to the market. The first one is anticipated to debut in 2025 and will be Nissan’s take on the recently unveiled Renault Duster. This SUV is expected to compete with popular models like the Hyundai Creta, Tata Curvv, Maruti Grand Vitara, and other midsize SUVs. After the first model, we’re gearing up for the launch of another one. This next one will take inspiration from the Bigster concept and will sport a three-row layout, which is pretty exciting. It’s going to be a larger SUV from Nissan, stepping into the ring with tough competitors like the Hyundai Alcazar and the soon-to-come seven-seat version of the Grand Vitara (codenamed Y17). And just a heads-up, all four SUVs from Renault-Nissan will be packing petrol engines under the hood.
