Ever wondered what the ideal car is made of ? Nissan shows us with the Qashqai
When shopping for a car, is it possible to have it all? Nissan’s global design team certainly thinks so. With the Nissan Qashqai, you have a commanding driving position with good visibility, the driving dynamics of a hot hatch and loads of space. For its ne t act, Nissan engineers set about nding solutions for the old belief that power and fuel consumption are a trade-off, which means that if you wanted a car with power and driveability, you had to sacri ce good fuel consumption. Nissan’s answer to that is the 1.2 Turbo and 1.6 Turbo petrol engines available in the Qashqai range. The next generation 1.2 and 1.6 Turbo engines use advanced engine management software and an adaptable turbocharger to deliver supreme levels of engine power and driving pleasure. The adaptable turbo means your Nissan Qashqai has enough power at low speeds to make stop-andstart traf c a bree e, while the engine delivers some of its best performance at highway speeds. The real magic is that these smaller turbo-charged engines use less fuel than older, larger engines. With the boost from the turbo and clever engine design, both the 1.2 Turbo and 1.6 Turbo use an average of only 6.2 litres of fuel per 100km in a combined usage cycle.* But the innovation does not stop there. Nissan’s engineers added another feature to these next-generation Turbo engines: reliability. The Turbo engines in the Nissan Qashqai are as frugal with service costs as they are with fuel and the Qashqai 1.2 Turbo is available from only R299 900.** Visit for more details or contact your nearest Nissan dealer to book a test drive. *Quoted fuel consumption may vary depending on driving behaviour, road conditions and non-technical factors. **Price is correct at time of going to print and subject to change without notice.
