Nissan Qashqai 2018 – Luxury and Sporty Design:
The most recent Nissan Qashqai 2018 will be underpinned by the same platform as the Nissan Rogue model. If you maybe don’t know, the word is about the CMF platform. Still, this model will be slightly shorter than the bigger Rogue model. The exterior design will receive some changes, but however, nothing too much notable. We can expect exactly the same front grille as in the previous model. It will have recognizable V shape.
The bumper will be also unchanged, and here we can see large air intakes as well as fog lights powered by LED technology. The headlights are slightly modified and they are also powered with the improved LED system. On the side body, we can notice some new lines and curves. Also, this model will ride on 17-inch aluminum wheels. You will be able to choose between numerous exterior colors and some of them are Flame Red, Storm White Pearl, Blade Silver, Magnetic Red, Nightshade, Bronze, Gun Metallic, etc.
The interior design of the imminent Nissan Qashqai 2018 will be elegantly designed and the cabin will be so spacious. In order to provide better entertainment to the passengers, we can expect updated infotainment system. At the center of the dash, we can see a five-inch touchscreen display. All seats in the cabin will have leather as standard upholstery, which will be excellent for comfort. Some of the other standard interior features will include satellite radio, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, a rearview camera, auxiliary audio jack, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi connectivity, height-adjustable driver seat, and many others as well.
