Nissan introduces new QASHQAI ST+ grade

 

Melbourne, Australia (1 May, 2019)–  Nissan QASHQAI is one of the country’s most popular small SUVs, so the Nissan QASHQAI range has been expanded with the introduction of an all-new mid-spec option making the QASHQAI even more enticing to buyers.

The new grade addition follows in the footsteps of its large SUV sibling, the Nissan Pathfinder which has also added an ST+ variant to its now four-strong grade mix.

Sitting between the entry grade Nissan QASHQAI ST and the higher-spec QASHQAI ST-L, the new QASHQAI ST+ has all of the features of the ST but adds an assortment of technologies that strengthens the grade walk.

New Nissan QASHQAI ST+ comes with a seven-inch touchscreen with digital radio, satellite navigation with traffic alert, the 360 degree Intelligent Around-View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection, power-fold and heated door mirrors, and privacy glass – all as standard equipment.

“The Nissan QASHQAI is one of the top choices for small SUV buyers, expanding the range will ensure it remains on the new car shopping list,” said Nissan Australia managing director Stephen Lester.

“Reducing the gap between the QASHQAI ST and ST-L will please many of our buyers who wanted more than what we offered on the entry grade, but weren’t in the market for a higher spec vehicle.

“It’s a competitive market, so it is important that we react to this to ensure buyers remain with the Nissan brand.

“I think the product team has created a very strong mid-spec offering, strengthening the Nissan QASHQAI range in the process.”

The stylish Nissan QASHQAI is now available in four grades including the entry ST, new ST+, the mid-spec ST-L and the range-topping Ti.

All grades boast a 2.0 litre engine with 106kW of power and 200Nm of torque, fitted with an Xtronic Continuously Variable transmission – with the entry grade available with a 6-speed manual option.

With fuel economy numbers that start from 6.9 litres# per 100 kilometres, Nissan QASHQAI is one of the largest vehicles in its sales segment making it the perfect SUV for active singles and couples without children, or for those who are about to start their family.

With 430 litres of rear cargo capacity – one of the best in its class – increasing to 1,598 litres with the rear seats down, the Nissan QASHQAI ST+ features 17 inch alloy wheels, Halogen headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights.

In addition the new grade maintains all the safety features of the Nissan QASHQAI ST, including an electric park brake with auto hold, push button engine start, cruise control, Bluetooth phone connectivity and a leather^ accented steering wheel.

From a safety perspective Nissan QASHQAI ST+ includes six airbags and front and rear sensors. It also has two second row ISOFIX points, plus an assortment of Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologiesǂ including Intelligent Emergency Braking with Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and the Intelligent Around-View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection.

On sale now, the Nissan QASHQAI ST+ is priced from $30,790 MSRP* and available in seven contemporary colours - with metallic paint costing an additional $595.
