Nissan South Africa is proud to sponsor the 2018 Miss South Africa pageant with a brand new “city-proof” Nissan Qashqai 1.5DCi Tekna for this year’s winner, Tamaryn Green who has now received her stunning new crossover vehicle.

"We are excited to support such a worthwhile initiative because we know that the Miss SA pageant provides a wonderful opportunity for young women to make a positive difference in SA," said Xavier Gobille, Nissan Africa Marketing and Sales MD.

A taste for the finer things

He said: "Nissan would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate the new winner, Tamaryn Green. The all-new Nissan Qashqai is the perfect crossover for any ambitious person who has a taste for the finer things in life. It’s a premium, all-round vehicle with a new design that’s almost as beautiful as Miss SA."

Since the first Nissan Qashqai was launched in 2007, 2.3-million units have been sold globally. The wide-ranging changes to the upgraded model are based on customer feedback and industry insights, and are designed to establish new levels of luxury in the mid-sized crossover segment.

The city-proof Qashqai’s improvements focus on the addition of Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) technology, higher levels of interior quality, improved performance and a contemporary exterior design.

Nissan has been introducing its highly innovative NIM technologies to vehicles currently available in SA. The Patrol and X-Trail, which were launched last year, have several NIM features, and the new Qashqai benefits from these technologies too.
