The Nissan Qashqai 2021 is one of the most anticipated cars and the most important car of Nissan in Europe. The pioneer of the compact SUV fashion will be completely renewed in 2021 and will arrive with a new generation that will take over from a true bestseller. Despite its age, the Nissan Qashqai is still one of the best-selling cars in Spain and Europe, especially thanks to its good quality/price ratio, but there is something obvious: it begins to need a weight update.
The new Nissan Qashqai will be more technological and efficient, will be part of the select league of hybrid SUVs, and will also be aesthetically much more modern and attractive. The truth is that the Qashqai has aged quite well and the outlines will not be revolutionary in the new model. Today I can anticipate some of the keys to the Nissan Qashqai 2021, a car that will surely be the protagonist in the coming months.
Nissan has confirmed that the design of the Nissan Qashqai 2021 will not be revolutionary, but will follow the lines marked by some of the prototypes that we have already seen. The ‘V-Motion’ grille will take center stage and the lines are expected to be more angular and forceful.
It will not grow much compared to the current generation and will be around 4.4 meters long, although it is expected that the battle will improve somewhat and, therefore, it will be possible to gain a few centimeters of interior habitability. The important thing is that the Qashqai will continue to be the Qashqai, a balanced and conservative model from an aesthetic point of view, a model that wants to reach millions of customers: for a groundbreaking model they already have the Nissan Juke.
Nissan Qashqai with hybrid technology
One of the great novelties of the Nissan Qashqai 2021 will be the arrival of new hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines. Of course, first, you may settle for gasoline and diesel versions, more efficient than ever, and perfectly tested to ensure their efficiency and reliability. But the e-Power system will most likely reach the Nissan Qashqai, a system powered by electric motors in which a small internal combustion engine is responsible for managing the charge of the batteries so as not to die on the shore.
This is a technology that Nissan already uses in Japan and that will also arrive in Europe in the coming years, achieving great efficiency. However, there is also talk of the arrival of a plug-in hybrid Nissan Qashqai, with a hybrid system designed by its partner Mitsubishi: probably a new, more efficient evolution of the one used by the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
Nissan Qashqai 2021: maximum connectivity
Connectivity is essential and Nissan is betting a lot on this technology. We already saw it in the Nissan Juke 2020, capable of connecting to the Google ecosystem and offering a wealth of information in real-time. The Nissan Qashqai 2021 will be a car connected to our world and the ecosystem that surrounds us. Thanks to its permanent connection to the internet, it offers us completely updated data, and even, with the arrival of 5G, we can see intercommunication with other vehicles. What is clear is that Nissan is betting heavily on connectivity in its new vehicles and the new Qashqai is likely to spearhead many innovative technologies.
Nissan Qashqai 2021, a new evolution in autonomous driving
The Nissan Pro Pilot system is the world’s best-selling autonomous driving system. Currently, several Nissan models can already equip it, including the new Juke. The new Qashqai will sport evolution of the Nissan Pro Pilot that, predictably, will increase the autonomous driving capacity of the vehicle, today very limited by regulations and by the system itself. Predictably, you will be able to change lanes and be more efficient when cornering. You will also be able to read your surroundings better thanks to technology such as radar or lidar. We will see what Nissan surprises us with, but without a doubt safety at the wheel will be a priority in the new Qashqai.
2021 Nissan Qashqai: reasonable price
And all this with a price that has to be competitive. One of the great strengths of the Nissan Qashqai is that it has achieved an unbeatable mix between image, quality, technology, and price. This combination must continue to exist in the Nissan Qashqai 2021 if it wants to continue to be a super seller not only in its category but in the entire market. A pioneering SUV that is always committed to technology but should not cease to be a car accessible to all types of pockets. Therein lies the key to your success.
