The Qashqai is now Nissan’s best-selling model in Europe. Next year, the upcoming 2023 Nissan Qashqai will see some significant changes. Following on from the Juke and Rogue, it’s time for this one to get a couple of refreshments.
At this point, we know a lot about the next generation. It will have improvements in a number of areas, beginning with a new platform and chassis. Of course, new exterior and interior design, as well as new powertrain options, are on the way. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Qashqai model.
Nissan Qashqai Redesign
The redesigned 2023 Nissan Qashqai may be built on a new architecture. Although this is not yet official, many experts anticipate the present CMF platform will continue. Of sure, this platform could use a few changes. According to reports, the purpose is to reduce vehicle weight and increase fuel economy. A makeover, on the other hand, is unavoidable.
The new model will have a slightly longer wheelbase, which means a more spacious cabin. The V-Motion grille will remain, but Nissan will almost certainly introduce fresh style, colors, and spectacular 20-inch wheels. More details will appear in the first quarter of 2022.
The interior of the new 2023 Nissan Qashqai will be entirely new. As previously said, the cabin will be more spacious, thanks to the new platform. Furthermore, we anticipate higher-quality materials, albeit the existing model appears to be adequate in this regard. In terms of cab design, we anticipate a contemporary layout with a large tablet-like display.
A fully digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster will be available in higher trim levels, as will the new 10.8-inch head-up display, which will be the largest in the class. More information will be released by Nissan in the coming months. In any case, significant interior enhancements are on the way, and we can’t wait to see this new model.
Diesel engines will be phased out of the portfolio’s powertrain options. Instead, the company will launch a new hybrid variant powered by a gasoline engine with a total output of around 190 horsepower. For those looking for a more traditional version, the new Qashqai will be available in two standard configurations.
In the lowest trim level, there is a 1.3-liter turbo-petrol engine that produces around 140 horsepower. A more powerful version will be able to support around 160 horsepower. Both engines will be equipped with a 12V mild-hybrid system. Nissan claims to have developed a completely new CVT transmission that will provide a considerably superior driving experience while also enhancing efficiency.
2023 Nissan Qashqai Price, Release Date
The price of the forthcoming 2023 Nissan Qashqai will almost certainly rise. We anticipate that the new model will begin at roughly 20,000 Euros or somewhat above. The Rogue Sport model, which is essentially the Qashqai model in the United States, is available for $24,000. The Qashqai will be available in Europe in the second half of 2022. While we wait for additional information, the Qashqai will almost certainly have a new look and a hybrid powertrain option.
