The upcoming 2024 Nissan Qashqai will gain a mid-cycle facelift, per reports. It is Nissan’s best-selling crossover in Europe for a reason. Before we get to the 2024MY, the 2023 Qashqai could get a new platform. This is just a rumor at the moment, as nothing is official yet. The current model sits on the CMF-CD platform, like the Rogue model.
New-gen model will not arrive anytime soon. Therefore, we don’t expect an exterior redesign or interior overhaul. Even the engine is relatively new, so the Qashqai model will get mild updates. Of course, we are waiting to hear more from Nissan, especially regarding the new architecture.
Nissan Qashqai Facelift
The 2024 Nissan Qashqai should receive mild cosmetic upgrades. Since the new-gen model has been introduced recently, this crossover won’t deliver dramatic changes. There is no need to, as the Qashqai model looks very appealing and modern. It wears a recognizable V-Motion grille with a sharp-looking front fascia. Even the rear section is upright and the side profile is very distinctive.
Of course, Nissan will try to improve certain areas, so we expect new colors, maybe new optional wheels or new character lines. The thing is, the 2024MY is not on the horizon, so it is hard to predict anything. But anyway, don’t expect major upgrades.
The cabin of the 2024 Nissan Qashqai will gain more updates. It is a reasonable outcome, as Nissan needs to provide technology updates, along with the new safety systems. A new update of the infotainment system is on the way, and we hope to see improved graphics.
However, the standard and optional touchscreen should remain dimensionally the same. Some reports are saying that Nissan will focus on improving the base trim level. If this is correct then anticipate more standard features and slightly better use of materials.
ePower Engine Specs
Under the hood, the 2024 Nissan Qashqai will continue to use the same 1.3-liter engine. It is a turbocharged gasoline unit that gets assistance from a hybrid system. However, it is an unusual system because the gasoline engine does not drive the wheels. Instead, it powers a generator. Two different outputs are available, with 140 horsepower and with 160 horsepower. Some speculations are predicting a more potent output with around 190 hp.
A 12V mild-hybrid setup will remain, just like the CVT automatic transmission. In case you didn’t know, Qashqai had problems with the CO2 emissions, so the diesel engine is not available for some time. Nothing will change under the hood, but before 2024MY, this crossover could actually receive more power.
2024 Nissan Qashqai Price, Release Date
The 2024 Nisan Qashqai will cost slightly above 20,000 Euros, although the official price is not available yet. This unique crossover will hit the dealerships next summer, in Europe.
We are waiting to hear more details regarding the rumored new platform. If you want the Qashqai model in the United States, you can buy its Nissan Rogue Sport sibling which starts at around $25,000.
