Frequently Asked Nissan Qashqai Questions and Answers

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 second-generation, the Qashqai’s exceptional blend of SUV practicality and hatchback-style has insured that it is still one of the most sought-after vehicles in South Africa. However, with the 6 different trim levels (Visia, Acenta, Acenta PLUS, Tekna and Midnight Edition) and 2 transmission options (CVT or manual) all powered by either a petrol (1.2 litre turbo) or diesel engine (1.5dCi), 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. However, they do come with an additional cost, so you’ll need to keep that in mind when shopping for a vehicle. This is the same with the petrol and diesel decisions, both are exceptionally reliable engines that are fuel frugal and economical to maintain, but there are slight price differences. So again it boils down to personal choice, and the reason why you are purchasing the Qashqai in the first place. We suggest that you book a test drive of one of the Qashqai options available on this page and then chat to one of our experienced Group 1 Nissan staff. They will be able to help you make the right choice when choosing the perfect Qashqai for you.
