SIZE to excite as much enthusiasm as the whole set of these funny miniatures from Woolworths, the Nissan Qashqai's compact line is perfect.
Packed with the latest safety kit and premium leather Nappa seat napkins, Ti begins at $ 37,990 plus on the road.
This price puts the top quality Qashqai shelf, a distinctly "cash-ky" for those who are confused, in the stretching distance of lower classes of prestigious variants such as the Audi Q2 or the Infiniti Q30, but in combination with the best compact SUVs, including the Mazda CX -3 Akari, Toyota C-HR Koba and Hyundai Kona Highlander.
There is nothing left in the list of options, and for a $ 9000 jump over the basic ST model, you get special leather trim seats with electric adjustment for the front two chairs, keyless entry without touching the button, seven inch color touchscreen with satnav and digital radio, panoramic sun roofs, as well as a two-zone aircon.
Qashqai was updated in December, when Nissan introduced more sound material and improved the use of soft touch materials.
N-Tec stop-stop models are still gradually eliminated and while equipped similarly, Ti adds better seats, radar cruise control and functionality that can direct the car if it starts wandering outside the lane without indications.
Service intervals are every 10,000 km or annually, with an average price of more than 12 visits of 315 dollars.
The warranty is short in accordance with the main standards in three years or 100,000 km, with roadside assistance for the same period. Kia leads with seven and unlimited mileage, while Hyundai, Mazda and Volkswagen (selected models) offer coverage for five years.
An extended warranty contract is available for a further three years until it covers more than 150,000 km.
On the outskirts is a standard four-cylinder petrol engine, unfortunately you do not get extra zip.
This does not mean it's slow. A continuously variable transmission works well with the engine (often you can transfer sounds more like Phil Gould), but it lacks a kick for those who prefer a greater weight under the right foot.
With a solid ride it borders on sports, although in most departments it seems to be appropriate – it performs its work as a family carrier reasonably well.
Looking at the part, Qashqai has a European appeal, especially impressive with a blue outer color scheme and 19-inch alloys of alloy. Other color options are different shades of gray, red, black and white.
The boot space is impressive with compact SUV standards and good enough for a few large suitcases.
Lower the rear seats and expand the 430-liter space to only shy 1600 years.
Available only for this Ti model, the radar cruise control feature can maintain Qashqai's vehicle position at three predetermined distances that the driver can set.
While it works, the Qashqai system feels that it works in waves of impulses when it follows slower cars … not something that we previously experienced with Nissans, and this will be taken as an aberration and not a rule.
Automatic emergency braking is also available that allows braking to avoid or reduce incoming accidents, front and rear parking sensors, a 360-degree camera view, dead-end warning, automatic long and last traffic warning.
At the top, Qashqai Ti is the highest contributor and not a star player in a competitive SUV arena. Looking well and with reliable operation, fulfills expectations and does not set.
