Nissan qashqai 2012 what car

The Nissan Qashqai has sold incredibly well, with over 1,000,000 models sold in Europe in the last five years. It is easy to see why, it is much more attractive than its competitors and is excellent value for money.

The 2012 Qashqai comes with a new CVT transmission system making it more fuel efficient and easier to drive. Nissan have further improved fuel economy and performance by putting the Qashqai on a diet by reducing the weight of the cylinder block. The Qashqai has a 2.0 liter petrol engine which produces 142 horsepower and196 Nm of torque.

When the Qashqai was first launched, there were few cars in its class; one of these cars was the Honda CR-V. The CR-V performs competitively compared to the Qashqai but is not blessed with the Qashqai’s looks. The Skoda Yeti and Kia Sportage are slightly smaller, basic alternatives.

Drivers may be frustrated by the performance of the Qashqai’s engine particularly at low speed: second gear cannot cope with any pressure whatsoever. The engine does also vibrate significantly at times, however, this is avoided if your gear changes occur at the right times. The driving position is quite high up and is appreciated by the majority of those who have used it. The steering is light, responsive and precise; passengers on board will appreciate the Qashqai’s smooth ride.

The Qashqai is perfect for individuals who want a car that combines fun and functionality. The Qashqai has a mid-range price tag which its performance fully merits.
