New Car of the Week – The Nissan Qashqai

May 9, 2012

Last week Auto Trader voted the Nissan Qashqai new car of the week! According to Auto Trader the Nissan Qashqai is the “Best-selling British designed, engineered and built Crossover” and at West Way Nissan we have to agree! The Nissan Qashqai is the original Crossover – the ultimate urban car built with reliability, comfort and style all in mind, it is currently the 6th best-selling car in the UK. At West Way Nissan we are huge fans of the Nissan Qashqai not only is one of our best selling cars but it’s also great value for money.

There are many different model variations of the Nissan Qashqai from the basic Visa to the Acenta to the gadget laden N-Tec+. The N-Tec+ comes with a 1.6 diesel engine as standard but it’s not what’s under the bonnet that makes this car special. On the exterior of the vehicle there are four small cameras – one just under the Nissan badge on the front of the car, one on the boot and one under each wing mirror. The cameras become active one the car is put into reverse and it gives a full 360° view of the Qashqai from a birds-eye perspective. This makes for quick and easy parking even in the tightest of spaces!
