In today’s economic climate, reliability and affordability are top of the list of needs for most consumers, and that is exactly what the 3rd-generation Nissan Qashqai offers, according to experts who rated the car ‘most reliable’ along with 50 000 consumers.
In the early ‘70 British cars were trend setters. Marques like Jag and Bently, Rover and Austin were world beaters, and it was difficult to see how the nascent Japanese auto industry could get a foothold in that market. And yet it did.
In the past half century, while Britain lost its car industry to foreign ownership, Japanese cars have gone from cheap and reliable to market leaders. These cars were readily accepted by the motoring mad British driving public, and now leading this pack is the third-generation Nissan Qashqai.
With vehicle safety an increasingly important purchasing decision, consumers will be pleased to know that the new Nissan Qashqai has earned five stars from the Australian crash tester ANCAP, based on tests in 2021 by Euro NCAP. However, this only applies to the Nissan Qashqai petrol variants and not the upcoming petrol-electric Qashqai e-Power.
It’s official; the new third-generation Nissan Qashqai has finally launched in South Africa! Based on first impressions, it was well worth the wait as the refreshed 2022 Nissan Qashqai delivers on all fronts and punches above its weight in so many ways. Here is a closer look at the latest addition to the growing Nissan range.
If you are looking for a Nissan SUV with a sunroof, you’re in luck! The Nissan range includes several models with a panoramic sunroof including the Qashqai, X-Trail, Patrol, Juke and the Pathfinder.

You would most likely not lick or nibble at your new car, so taste will not form part of the sensory experience that shapes our feeling about a car. But, you will look at it, the lines, the design, the colours, the detail in the door handle. Sound is important, from the roar or purr of the engine to the sound when the door closes. You will touch it, stroke the leather steering wheel or the crease line in the bonnet, enjoy the way the gear lever fits in your hand.
The latest version of the Nissan Qashqai is currently available in six yummy trim levels, two engine types and two transmission options. But Nissan aficionados are well aware that the 3rd generation has been released internationally. While we have no confirmation on when, or even if, we will get the new Qashqai, we thought it would be fun to compare the two generations. Proviso: car models tend to be tailored to the country in which they will be sold, so it’s not quite an apples vs apples thing here.
It’s here. Okay, not yet, but it will be. Soonish. Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seatbelts and hold onto your hats. The much anticipated, long-awaited Nissan Qashqai third generation is nearly here. Why the razzmatazz? Because the Qashqai was the first compact SUV/crossover ever when it was launched 14 years ago, and the current Nissan Qashqai is still a major force in the fierce fight for market share in this segment. By all accounts, the next one will be a zinger.
The automotive giant is making headlines once more with its award-winning Nissan e-POWER technology. This proprietary innovation combines a fully electric motor with a petrol engine to charge the battery without having to plug it in.
Nissan e-POWER is derived from the all-new Nissan LEAF, which is the most successful mass-produced electric vehicle to date with Tesla Model 3 close behind. This innovative mass-market fully electric vehicle has sold nearly 500,000 units across the world and that number will only increase as the automotive sector introduces better technologies.
