Nissan is about to introduce its third major product this year (after Frontier and Pathfinder) by unveiling the new 2021 Nissan Qashqai. The compact crossover plays a key role in the company’s plan to get back on track after losing money in the last few years. Today, the third-generation model is going to be uncovered after an extensive teaser campaign.
From the many reviews released by Nissan in the promotion to today’s launch, we had to discover quite a lot about the exterior and interior design as well as some of the technical specifications before the debut date. The 2021 Nisssan Qashqai is the latest model from the Japanese automaker to adopt the new C-shaped LED headlights, which will automatically modify the beam based on the road situation and the traffic up ahead by using 12 individual elements.
Nissan has already disclosed the generation switch will bring a thud in size as a result of stretching the wheelbase by 20 mm for an additional rear legroom. It is also 35 mm longer, 32 mm wider, and 25 mm taller. The redesigned body will also increase the front and rear headroom and enlarge the space between the driver and front passenger. The 2021 Nissan Qashqai will be more practical, adding 74 liters of cargo space over its predecessor after lowering the floor and adjusting the rear suspension.
An important upgrade in terms of its technology has also been promised, including a 12.3-inch fully digital driver’s display and a 9-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system.
Beyond the upgraded technology which also includes wireless smartphone charging, Nissan promises the new compact crossover will have a better materials inside the cabin with more soft-touch surfaces and even massaging front seats. There’s also a new leather design that takes 25 days to create and more than an hour to sew its 3D-like diamond quilted design.
The 2021 Nissan Qashqai will reduce in weight in some areas as a result of switching to the CMF-C platform. The tailgate is now made from a complex material and there’s 50 percent more high-strength steel used than before, while all the four doors, hood, and front fenders are created from aluminum.
