Consumption of petrol engines ranges from 7.2 - 8.9 L / 100 km, and diesel 4.5 - 6.7 L / 100 km.

The interior is characterized by pronounced simplicity and modern approach. The thin seats can be folded down, and the height of the backrest can be adjusted. A large opening in the back and side, and the possibility of folding the seat in the floor makes this concept functional. For example, it is possible to place a bicycle in the cab after only a few seconds of preparation.
Among the interesting features of the concept is the safe box for safekeeping, larger glass windows on the roof and innovative lighting design.

    Nisan Qashkai is a bad car. When I bought it, two hours later I said it wasn't a serious car. That came true two years later. He started consuming oil passionately, the door opening broke down on three doors, the wiper relay, the wipers, terrible not to mention.
    I haven't seen a worse car in a long time and changed it with over 100 cars in 40 years.

    • New Year's Eve says:

      If you've changed 100 cars in 40 years, how come you drive such a bad car 2 all year. You're a bit contradictory. I've had it for 3 years and never had a more comfortable and reliable car. Just that much, and you are buying battered grandmas for 2-3 thousand euros, so what do you expect?

          I bought a Nissan qashqai +2 2011 two years ago. with 197000 km driven, from the first owner from Switzerland, the man is a programmer. Serviced flawlessly as well as preserved, engine 2.0 dci 150 hp.4 × 4 technical equipment the strongest package, there is nothing missing… so far I have driven 30.000 km with the engine no problem, three services regular, not very cheap to maintain in an authorized service, tires eats fast, 18 inches rims, I had a problem that it constantly turns on the regeneration of DPF filters every 2-3 thousand km. I solved this by washing the dpf and putting it back. This engine is definitely the best for the body, everything else is weak, what is a drawback of this car is the trap, it crashes quickly and is very gentle forward. In winter, it is a little noisier in the cabin until the car warms up, and it needs time to raise the temperature a bit. Comfort is ok for me, I have leather seats, and somehow they are crickets compared to canvas seats and last longer, the only drawback is the summer, so plus if you leave the panorama open then you have found it. In the wet, if it's not in all mode, it knows how to buzz on the highway, 4 × 4 works great and it's on all the time with me, great in the snow, especially if you turn on the gearbox.
