The much publicized Terrano isn’t the only Nissan vehicle that is headed our way. It has emerged that the boffins at Nissan India could also be working to bring in the well acclaimed Qashqai crossover to India. If launched, the Qashqai would be positioned above the Terrano in Nissan India’s product portfolio. The most successful car of their alliance in India is the Renault Duster SUV, selling in high volumes. On 20th August Nissan will unveil the Terrano, which is similar to Duster and will be priced over it. The crossover is intended to be positioned above the Terrano if it gets a green signal.
It may be noted that the carmaker was earlier thinking of bringing its Sylphy sedan to India. The Nissan Sylphy is a Toyota Corolla adversary and has been fairly successful in most international car markets it is sold in. However, the plan has been axed owing to the declining popularity of entry level D Segment sedans in Indian car market. Instead, Nissan is now contemplating launching the Qashqai to cash in on the increasing demand for SUVs and Crossovers.
The Nissan Qashqai looks sporty, agile and modern. Nissan has treated the SUV with muscular styling elements and strong cuts and creases, which reflects the aggressive new design language of the company. The interiors however appear to have numb styling like the Duster. Extensive use of grey colour is not what an Indian buyer wants out of a premium SUV. We can expect good quality levels and long list of gadgetry in the Qashqai.
The Nissan Qashqai is built on a car platform and has sufficient ground clearance to be qualified as a ‘soft-roader’. The Qashqai definitely has got typical Crossover looks and an imposing stance, enough to qualify as a ‘SUV’ in the books of Indian car buying lot.
In Europe, the car is available with a range of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines (including the popular Renault 1.5-litre K9K diesel), with either front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, automatic or manual transmissions, and five- or seven-seat configurations, but it remains to be seen which combination Nissan zeroes in on for our market. The best part, though, is while the Duster and Terrano are upgraded versions of a budget SUV, the Qashqai has been designed from the word go as a premium product, so you can expect good quality and lots of equipment.
If We Talk about its Interior then you Get Too Many Option or i say Many Controls as You Can See in Above Pic For Everything You Get Extra Controls i hope this Will Not Happen in Indian Qashqai you also Get Sunroof Top as a Option. You also Get Rear Seat Cup Holder.
The Qashqai is available with an option of front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive setup, automatic and manual transmissions and seating configuration of five and seven. If the plan is executed well then the Nissan Qashqai is expected to be introduced next year in India, starting at Rs. 14 lakhs for the base variant. Nissan Qashqai India launch can happen as soon as in early 2014 and expect us to report again once we have more details on Nissan India’s plans of launching the Qashqai.
