It has renewed its image something, enriched its equipment and modified certain mechanical elements. Now the suspension is softer and address has been recalibrated stop be more accurate. Their behavior is very balanced: it is comfortable in open paths and walks with simplicity and efficiency in more winding paths. It is striking how participatory is the electronics in the dynamics of the car. Under the system "chassis Control", uses sensors stability to seat body (simularía active damping) selectively braking the wheels.

Nissan Qashqai 2017


The first and so far only version renewed Qashqai which has passed through our editorial staff has been the 1.2 DIG-T X-Tronic. All these acronyms refer to a fine mechanical group, formed by a "little" 4 cylinder engine 1.2 116 hp and an automatic transmission CVT. The motor rotates and pushes with great softness and its nature turbo also brings great pleasure, for easy and constant push, but adjusted to its ultimate potential, below the Peugeot 3008 131 hp 1.2 Puretech. The CVT change, which continuously transmits the engine thrust, heavily involved in this. Also influences the final performance. Therefore, it imposes pleasure and refinement, to the dictates of the stopwatch.

The motor 1.2 Puretech of 3008 It is tricilíndrico and for this reason it is not so fine and balanced rotation four cylinders of origin Renault Nissan. But apparently far from "rude", It is also nice and especially feel full of character. It has a very brisk first round and always seems to push his rival.
