A look at the new digital instrument cluster.
Automatic models will gain a new, smaller gear selector.
Nissan has released a handful of images giving us an early look at the next-generation Qashqai’s cabin, a space the firm describes as “class leading”.
The third-generation Qashqai is expected to hit initial markets in 2021. Nissan promises the upcoming model will set a “new segment standard” in terms of both quality and usability.
In Europe, the new version of the crossover will be available with items such as Nappa leather trim, a massage function and white ambient lighting.
Nissan claims the centre console layout has been “optimised” thanks in part to the adoption of a smaller gear selector for automatic versions. On all-wheel-drive models, meanwhile, the drive-mode selector gains a matte-chrome ring and piano-black finish.
A 15 W wireless smartphone charger will also be available in Europe, while the console box offers front and rear USB charging connections with both USB-A and USB-C ports.
The nine-inch touchscreen system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, while a 10-speaker Bose Premium sound system will be available, too. There’s also a new configurable 12,3-inch TFT multi-information screen and a 10,8-inch head-up display.
In terms of space, Nissan claims the new Qashqai's longer wheelbase has allowed rear knee room to increase by 28 mm, while headroom fore and aft is up 15 mm thanks to a “small increase in exterior dimensions”. Luggage capacity, meanwhile, has increased by “over 74 litres”.
