Nissan Qashqai 2018

The development of New Nissan Qashqai 2018 will make it much more different from the previous model. It will grow in size, more comfortable and this crossover will have better look. The larger size forces the company to provide softer suspension system, but the company should have a big concern on how to keep its original character. It will comeback with mid-life facelift such as running gear, new transmission and new engines.

Nissan Qashqai 2018 Front Angle


Don’t teach them to use a new platform because it seems impossible to happen. They will only offer longer wheelbase model.  The most noticeable changes are around the front part of the car. Qashqai 2018 will get new set of headlights that are also used by new Pathfinder. We glad that the car now has better look. The back doesn’t get much change because it only has new taillights, new wheels and new paint colors.


Although there is no official information has been released yet, it will be the strong rival for Tiguan. It has seven-seat design, but for the changes would be a very little. It is expected to have new infotainment system to support driver to be easier to drive and manage the Nissan Qashqai 2018. In addition, it will use better materials compared to the previous model. This should be enough in order to increase its level of comfort. The biggest change is the seven seats model that has slightly longer wheelbase and improve its comfort.


Many unofficial reports mentioned that it is hard to expect a new engine. The company will keep the current engine design for the new 2018 Nissan Qashqai. The seven seats model will use two engine options which will be 1.6 liter of petrol and 1.6 liter of diesel. For petrol engine, it has 161 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque power and the diesel will be able to provide 129 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. It seems that they only work with CVT gearbox. The five seats version is expected to have sportier design with the new set of shocks as well as springs to improve its brakes.

Release Date and Price

The changes are not radical and it means that the price will be close to the current model. It only gets better than before. The long wheelbase model is the main highlight to make it different from the previous model and we estimate that the cost can be 10% more expensive for the brand new Nissan Qashqai 2018.
