What they say about the new 2017 Nissan Qashqai

Nissan's SUV lineup is already one of the most comprehensive in the industry, but it will get another model this spring as the all-new 2017 Nissan Qashqai hits the market. Fuel-efficient, fun to drive and offered with plenty of comfort and safety features, Nissan's new subcompact SUV will also offer plenty of space in a nimble, city-friendly package.

Reviews for the 2017 Nissan Qashqai in Europe

Although the 2017 Nissan Qashqai is brand new here, it has already been available for some time in Europe. Here's what reviewers who have had the opportunity to evaluate it have to say about Nissan's urban SUV.

The new Qashqai adopts the Renault-Nissan Alliance's new CMF platform, which significantly changes its dimensions. Longer by 5 cm (4.38 m), wider by 2.6 cm (1.81 m) and lower by 1.5 cm (1.59 m) than the first generation, the Nippon logically changes its silhouette for more dynamism.

The sides are deepened, the curves are more present and the ribbed hood ends on a chrome V-shaped grille.

The changes continue inside where the Qashqai 2 (Qashqai 2017 here) takes a considerable leap forward. First of all in terms of quality and assembly with well-fitting foamed plastics and gloss black lacquering. Progress has also been made in terms of presentation with a center console revolving around a 7-inch touchscreen and a dashboard incorporating a 5-inch LCD screen with all menus and equipment configurable from the steering wheel.

This is a welcome ease of use when you consider that the new Qashqai offers a rich array of new technologies for the segment. It includes emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, automatic parking, rearview cameras and a panoramic view of the car. All these features are available as standard or as an option depending on the four trim levels.

Otherwise, the new Qashqai's handling is very good. The roll and understeer are largely contained, even in the curves of the Madrid hinterland. It must be said that the Japanese is well helped by an active trajectory and attitude control that applies small brakes to stabilize body movements. However, its favorite playground will remain the highway and other fast lanes. For more sportiness, we'll have to wait for the Nismo version planned for the next few years. -


Presented as an alternative to sedans, the Qashqai also delights customers in the MPV category, whose consensualism can be tiring. Hence the importance of preserving its athletic build and elevated driving position that has done so much for its success with mothers. At the same time, engineers were asked to refine the Qashqai to reduce the coefficient of air penetration and the appetite of the engines. The solution? To take care of the profile, to multiply the fairings and deflectors (on the lights, the tailgate or behind the wheels) and to slightly reduce the height of the roof (- 15 mm).

We could fear for the habitability but the new version offers 10 mm more space for the skull of its rear passengers. The length has also increased: + 5 cm (for a total of 4.38 meters) and + 1.6 cm on the wheelbase. Parents can rest assured that their slouching teenagers will find room for their legs. As proof, a 1.80-meter tall passenger sitting behind a driver of the same size has a good ten centimeters between the backrest and his knees. Appreciable. -


The Qashqai has a major asset: excellent front seats. They hold you in place like a bucket seat, but with a soft touch.

The volume of the trunk is very satisfactory, and it is also comfortable to use with a high floor. This one hides two sub-trunks, by panels of which one can be put upright to create compartments, it is well thought -
