The third generation of the Nissan Qashqai has been photographed, once again, in broad daylight. On this occasion, thanks to our spy photographers we have the opportunity to take a detailed look inside the new Qashqai. A cabin that will be completely renovated and will look more digital and connected.
Nissan continues to work hard to develop the next generation of its popular and successful compact SUV. The new 2021 Nissan Qashqai has been hunted, once again, by conducting road tests. Some tests that are crucial to complete the different stages of the development process. This time, we have a new opportunity to peek inside.
Unlike some spy photos that we published recently, this time we can observe in great detail some of the key components of the cabin. And in particular we must point out both the instrument panel and the new touch screen that will crown the central console. The interior will undergo major changes. Some changes that have been advanced, to a large extent, by the new Nissan X-Trail.
This will be the interior of the new Nissan Qashqai 2021
As can be seen in the snapshots that illustrate this article, the instrument panel will be totally new and digitization will be the main protagonist. At the top of the center console is the new touch screen that has a considerable size and will be decisive for operating the new infotainment system. A multimedia platform that will allow access to new digital services online.
The new Qashqai will be a more connected car. Likewise, the list of driver assistance systems, grouped under the name ProPilot, will be improved. And by the way, although it is not fully appreciated, the air conditioning module is also new. There are many novelties that we can find in the interior of the renewed Nissan SUV. In addition, how could it be otherwise, there will be more options of upholstery and materials for the trim.
Regarding the exterior, it is obvious that the camouflage is still very present. The truth is that it is still very covered. In a previous sighting we had the opportunity to see him lighter than camouflage. The design will adapt to the new language that Nissan is applying to all its new launches. It will still be recognizable as Qashqai, but in turn, it will sport a more modern and dynamic image.
When will it arrive in dealerships? About 24 hours ago, very relevant information about its arrival on the market has been leaked. Nissan has decided to delay the start of production of the new Qashqai until the first half of 2021. Initially, production was scheduled to start later this year. Something that will not finally happen. So we won’t see it in our dealerships until 2021.
The current Qashqai is produced in Sunderland (UK). It shares facilities with other Nissan models, such as the Juke or Leaf. The new generation of the Qashqai will continue to be produced on British soil. What’s more, it is making a million-dollar investment to modernize these facilities.
