The new one white ambient lighting will accompany a more ergonomic and technological cabin in which aesthetics will also stand out tactile switches and buttons.
The design of the center console has been optimized thanks to collaboration between Nissan designers and engineers, both in terms of ergonomics and usability. The centerpiece of that console is a new, smaller smart gear selector for the automatic versions.
In the 4WD versions, a drive mode selector has been designed with a matte chrome ring and piano black finish, giving the driver tactile access to the different driving modes.
The new Qashqai offers a advanced infotainment system with best-in-class connected service offering, including easy integration of smartphones, integrated Wi-Fi for up to seven devices and NissanConnect Services, a specific application to control and monitor the vehicle.
NissanConnect’s larger, higher-resolution 9-inch display is the digital gateway to vehicle navigation, entertainment and settings, and is compatible with Android Auto Y Apple CarPlay. In addition, it has also been incorporated Wireless Apple CarPlay.
Either via DAB radio or from a smartphone, the audio reproduction is guaranteed thanks to the system of Bose Premium sound, a team that has 10 speakers plus the Bose Acoustimass® bass box, located in the trunk.
A new 12.3-inch high-definition, fully electronic TFT multi-information display offers a selection of customizable layouts to display information about navigation, entertainment, traffic or the vehicle itself, all controlled from a new touch control located on the steering wheel.
The innovative 10.8-inch head-up display (HUD) offers the largest image size in the segment. Key information about navigation, driver assistance and road conditions is projected onto the windshield, within the driver’s line of sight, allowing you to stay focused on the road for added comfort and confidence behind the wheel.

The brand has told us that the new Qashqai continues to offer drivers a dominant sense of their surroundings with better front, side and rear visibility. Improvements made include a wider windshield opening angle, a slimmer front pillar design, and side mirrors installed in the door, instead of the A pillar, thus reducing poor visibility areas.
The longer wheelbase of the new Qashqai combines with an efficient chassis to create even more space for users. Rear occupant knee room has been increased by 28mm to 608mm. There is also more distance between the driver and the front passenger. Headroom at the front and rear has been increased by 15mm thanks to the slight increase in exterior dimensions.

The total boot capacity has increased by more than 70 liters compared to the previous generation model, reaching the 504 liters Thanks in part to the 20mm lower floor in the cargo area as a result of improved rear suspension.
