Nissan Qashqai Acenta powered by the smallest Nissan engine but it still manages to trail its rivals along the clock from a standing start
There are hundreds of automakers in the market doing business even attaining the top position regarding sales but there is only one car maker who is very expert in playing its cards very successfully, its Nissan. Nissan has set its agenda to make the Qashqai successful in the crossover segment. It was expected that after the discontinuation of Almera, this segment will be left blank by Nissan for couple of years but with the introduction of the Qashqai, they again proved their strength in the market.
The all new Qashqai is a revolutionary model in its own way where it mixes the dynamics and styling cues as of the Renault Espace and Range Rover.
Apart from the relatively high price, the Qashqai is featuring the smallest Nissan engine that certainly putting the car last in the power stakes. It is producing 105bhp of power and the torque of 177lb-ft that can trail its rivals against the clock when it goes from zero to 62 miles. There is only Hyundai that has significant advantage over the Qashqai because of its power. The Qashqai beat the Yeti in the gear test and it has a six speed transmission with relatively closer ratios. The closer ratios allow the Qashqai to use the maximum available power. It has very good sales record and is even more apparent on the roads; although it is smaller yet it’s agile than the Peugeot, Skoda or even Hyundai. It has an updated suspension system that brings a fascinating balance between the ride, handling and better control in the corners.
You will be more affectionate with the beauty when you go for a fill-up. It’s smaller engine has very reasonable mpg ratios of 39mpg that can only be beaten by the Yeti.
