2015 Nissan Qashqai 1.6 DIG-T 163 N-tec - Autocar Review

Autocar.cotoday released their review of the new Nissan Qashqai 1.6 DIG-T 163 N-tec. The Autocar team gave the Japanese car giants an impressive 3 and a half stars out of 5.

Just over a year ago Nissan launched the second-generation Qashqai, in the process dropping the previous version’s 2.0-litre petrol engine from the range.

To plug the gap, the firm has introduced a new 1.6-litre DIG-T 163 engine, which, it is claimed, makes big strides in terms of both performance and efficiency.

You might question the logic of petrol power in a crossover, bearing in mind the perception that diesel is king in this segment, but it seems that many of Nissan’s private buyers still prefer petrol to diesel.

By the time the new engine is fully established in the line-up, it’s anticipated that around 45% of Qashqais will be petrol - albeit with the smaller DIG-T 1.2 115 making up the bulk of those sales.

So, with a solid market to aim for, how does the new engine perform and is it worth considering over the excellent 1.5 110 dCi?
