According to reports 2014 Nissan Qashqai will soon come to the market and we have received few images of this vehicle. It seams that this SUV will be offered before X-trail that was announced before new Qashqai. X-trail has been announced for 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show that will be held in September while Qashqai will come about month later while going on sale at the end of 2013.
Our spy shots, taken by an reader in Bedford, simply over 10 miles from Nissan’s UK R&D facility in Cranfield, reveal that work is well in progress on the brand-new Qashqai to meet that late-2013 on-sale date. Click with the gallery for the camera-phone pictures.
The new X-Trail will reach display rooms in the very early part of 2014. Key to the appeal of the new Qashqai will be a more upmarket interior, even more boot area and enhanced mpg and CO2. Rates aren’t anticipated to be too much higher than for the current car.
2014 Nissan Qashqai Release Date
When it goes on sale, the brand-new Nissan Qashqai will not have a seven-seat Qashqai +2 version.
Global item planning employer Andy Palmer confirmed that the Nissan will have a seven-seat crossover, but said: “We won’t do it in the same way.”.
And an insider explained what this means. “The Nissan X-Trail will get seven seats; the Qashqai will only be offered with five.”.
The current Qashqai +2 is up to 1,750 more expensive than the standard car, but the rearmost seats are small and suitable for children only.
The new Qashqai will be built in Sunderland and will be charged with structure on the massive sales success of the existing vehicle. It was the sixth good selling automobile in Britain in 2012, with 45,675 finding homes.

The all-new Nissan Qashqai will not be exposed until the fall, but bosses have let slip details as the car’s November public debut date draws near.
“The future Qashqai will be innovative with both styling and technology,” global product planning head Andy Palmer told us. “Don’t expect it to appear like the current automobile with a couple of extra radiuses.”.
Our exclusive images demonstrate how the brand-new model can look, with a bolder front end, dynamic curves along its sides and a huge roof spoiler at the rear. The brand-new 2014 Nissan Qashqai will be built on a new, modular platform that will underpin medium-sized Renault and Nissan cars, from the next X-Trail to the forthcoming Megane. This has been engineered to accept plug-in hybrid technology, and the Qashqai is first in line.
Palmer confirmed that a plug-in hybrid version will be introduced in showrooms in Europe in 2015. The hybrid’s CO2 emissions will dip under 50g/km, while a 113bhp 1.2-litre supercharged three-cylinder engine will replace the current 1.6-litre petrol. The new 1.6-litre diesel, carried over from the current car, will have its CO2 cut to below 100g/km.
High-end versions will still be offered with four-wheel drive, and while the vehicle will be larger, prices will be similar to today’s model, beginning from around £16,500.
Review Of Qashqai
The brand-new Qashqai goes on sale early next year, but the Sunderland factory where it’ll be constructed is preparing for production in December. And it’s clear how important the brand-new car is to the staff. Line supervisor Kevin Reah told us: “The Qashqai has transformed this manufacturing facility. No-one fears for their task now.”.
Last year, the existing variation was the UK’s sixth biggest-selling new car, with even more than 45,000 models discovering homes. It was an export success, too, with 85 per cent of overall 2014 Nissan Qashqai manufacturing (that’s 262,985 vehicles) going abroad.
