Nip and tuck for Nissan's Qashqai

2009-12-04 14:46
Nissan's popular Qashqai is being revised for 2010.

The crossover hatch-cum-SUV's update is mostly cosmetic though, with the biggest changes visible at the front where Qashqai gets a new bonnet, front bumper, grille and headlamp cluster.

At the rear, the lights remain mostly unchanged although an "aerodynamic feature" has been added, ostensibly to reduce drag. A transparent lens cover has been adopted and LEDs added for the brake and tail lights.

Interior changes include a new design for the dials and the onboard computer readout showing fuel consumption, mileage, time and other important detail, has been redesigned, too.

A big bonus for hoarders is the added storage space within the cabin. The revised Qashqai gains a new cubby at the base of the central cluster and (on certain versions) a recess just behind the gear selector for smaller bits and bobs.

Two new paint colours and alloy wheel designs have also been added and, according to Nissan, some minor suspension tuning should ensure improved ride comfort.
