Regarded as one of the top performers in the UK automotive industry, the Nissan Qashqai holds a special place as it is manufactured in Great Britain at Nissan’s Sunderland plant. Its journey to success is a remarkable tale, marked by the emergence of imitators and the growth of the small SUV class, now a highly competitive segment.

Originally introduced by the Japanese automaker Nissan in 2006, this stylish vehicle was initially marketed as the Nissan Dualis in Japan and Australia. The second generation, which debuted in 2013, adopted the name Qashqai but was sold in the United States under the moniker “Nissan Rogue Sport.”

While being a trailblazer in its category, the Qashqai has faced formidable competition from rivals like the Seat Ateca, Mazda CX-5, and Peugeot 3008, yet it has won over consumers with its blend of style, practicality, and urban appeal. Additionally, its operating costs have positioned it favorably among its peers.

The second-generation model underwent various enhancements, including the replacement of the former 1.2 and 1.6 turbos with more potent 1.3-liter four-cylinder turbo engines. Despite its size, these upgraded specifications have found favor in the market, proving their significance.

The latest model boasts numerous technological advancements, such as the integration of a Nissan intelligent key with push-to-start functionality and an advanced driver assistance system featuring enhanced graphics for improved usability. The ProPilot system, now standard in many Nissan models, has been significantly refined. The vehicle also offers the choice of a six-speed manual transmission, and the front-wheel drive can be switched to the 4WD 1.6 diesel variant.

Undoubtedly, the Nissan Qashqai has upheld its dominance in the C-SUV segment, a position it has held for over a decade. With continuous enhancements and vigorous marketing efforts, this vehicle is poised to maintain its leading position well into the future.
