Which Nissan Qashqai should I buy?

Show The Answer +

Nissan was one of the first vehicle manufacturers to introduce the driving world to the crossover genre when they introduced the Qashqai in 2006. Now in its third-generation, the Qashqai’s exceptional blend of SUV practicality and hatchback-style has insured it is still one of the most sought-after vehicles in South Africa. However, with the 4 different trim levels (Visia, Acenta CVT, Acenta, and Acenta PLUS CVT) and 2 transmission options (CVT or manual) all powered by a petrol (1.3 litre turbo), we understand that a little guidance might be necessary. That said, the question of “which Nissan Qashqai is right for you” is based purely on what it is you want! For example, the higher trim level Qashqai Crossovers (Acenta PLUS and Tekna) come with a range of convenience and safety features that are not found in the other trim levels. These do come with an additional cost, so you’ll need to keep that in mind when shopping for your Qashqai model. We suggest you book a test drive of one of the Qashqai options available on this page and then chat to one of our experienced Group1 Nissan staff – they will be able to help you make the right choice when choosing the perfect Qashqai for you.
