One of Nissan’s best selling model Qashqai will get some serious upgrades. According to the manufacturer, the new 2022 Nissan Qashqai should arrive next year as the 2022 model.
From our reliable source, the third generation Qashqai will be more futuristic and it will borrow many cues from the IMQ concept car. Besides that, the next-gen model will introduce plenty of mechanical changes. Moreover, one can expect a vast number of engines and excellent fuel efficiency.
2022 Nissan Qashqai Redesign
The new 2022 Nissan Qashqai model will be based on the IMQ concept. As you may know, the IMQ model is the SUV that provides a futuristic look never seen from Nissan. From the information that we got, the new Nissan Qashqai will use many cues from this concept model. The same line and shape will be present, and the only difference will be seen on the front fascia.
Nissan will try to combine the recognized Qashqai look with the design of the IMQ model. On top of that, the plug-in hybrid will use the technology developed by Mitsubishi, which is now under Nissan’s umbrella. So we can expect more customization and many more features with the plug-in hybrid model. EV model rumors spreading around also, but unfortunately, there is no info on how this model will look like.
Like the exterior, the interior will be made using many cues from the IMQ model. However, the upcoming 2022 Nissan Qashqai will try to keep its revolutionary design inside and it will add effortlessly cleaner lines. This model will be spacious, modern, comfortable, and smarter than ever.
Also, the manufacturer will use an advanced ProPILOT1 driver assistance system, which keeps drivers more secure and safe with a multitude of smart sensors. On top of that, Nissan’s Omni-Sensing Technology that is used in the IMQ may be implanted in the new Qashqai. This technology will be giving drivers the capability to see around corners, visualize specific traffic information and even determine alternative routes as you travel.
2022 Nissan Qashqai Under the Hood
From the latest speculations, the newest 2022 Nissan Qashqai will be made on a strong platform that can keep holding on a vast range of engines. It will also use the same mechanics as the IMQ model. The concept model comes with a 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol engine that generates the electricity needed to power the electric motors. This version will be definitively available with the all-wheel-drive system. Nissan claims that this powertrain will offer an impressive power output of 340 horsepower.
We think that plug-in hybrid systems won’t be available immediately. However, according to some gossip, it will be available sometime after. Nissan will most notably use a 1.3-liter powertrain and excellent battery capacity alongside an electric motor. Also, we can expect the EV model soon after.
Release Date and Cost
The completely redesigned 2022 Nissan Qashqai will be available to purchase at some point in 2021 as the 2022 model. If rumors are believed to be true, this model will be based on the IMQ concept. The price of the latest 2022 Nissan Qashqai is not yet available. However, we can expect more information soon.
