The positive effect of the energy management of the light hybrid system on CO2 emissions is competitive and the 1.3-liter engine generates more power and torque than the main competitors, making the version with a gasoline engine an attractive offering. The lightweight hybrid system adds just 22 kg to the total mass of the vehicle.
The 1.3 l gasoline engine will have a choice of two different powers, 140 hp Y 158 hp, with a 6-speed manual transmission or the new Xtronic automatic gearbox (only for the 158 hp version).

The system is capable of automatically resuming driving if the vehicle has been stationary for less than three seconds and the traffic in front of the vehicle is moving away.
In the new Nissan Qashqai, the updated system is now able to adapt the car’s speed based on external circumstances and can also use the data from the navigation system to adjust the speed for subsequent turns or exit ramps that have a smaller radius. closed.
Additionally, the ProPILOT system with Navi-link can communicate with Qashqai Blind Spot Radars to help intervene by means of an address correction to help prevent a lane change maneuver from occurring if a vehicle is in the blind spot area.
