Ever won­dered what the ideal car is made of ? Nis­san shows us with the Qashqai

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - ADVERTORIAL -

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. Please con­tact your near­est Nis­san dealer for the lat­est price.
