Nissan Introduces the Qashqai 360 to the Market
|   Tuesday, April 23, 2013
The newly launched Nissan Qashqai 360 is placed perfectly between the Qashqai Acenta (mid level) and the Tekna (top level) variants. The Tekna is the quite popular amount the Qashqai variants and the 360 is expected to share the popularity as it is cheaper than the Tekna while packs in almost similar features. In the UK The 360 will be replacing the N Tec + trim which accounted for close to 60 percent of sales of Qashqai in 2012

Qashqai 360 is expected by the company Nissan to follow the footsteps of the N Tec + and this is expected to be a practical target as the 360 basically packs in more features for the same price.
The Nissan Qashqai is the most popular crossover in most Western countries and the new trim will just spice up the market. This new vehicle sports 18 inch alloys along with a rear panoramic glass roof.

The Qashqai 360 gets additional LED lighting, leather trim, gear lever and door handles finished in gloss black. The leather armrests add the necessary zing to the vehicle and this enhances the overall aesthetics of this vehicle. The mirrors feature 360 badges while the car features advanced the Nissan Connect Multimedia system. There are no major mechanical changes on this vehicle and the well weighed handling makes this car one of the best in class.

The Qashqai is comfortable to ride and the overall ride quality is decent. However, minor body roll is present in some quarters although this is not a serious downside to the vehicle. The vehicle is powered by a 1.6 liter turbo charged diesel engine which is quite refined and smooth. The vehicle is available in two and four wheel drive variants while sporting five and seven seated options.

The 360 is an advanced trim setting and this enhances the aesthetic appeal of the Qashqai as a crossover. The vehicle features parking assistance as well as Bluetooth and a host of other advanced technological options. There are cameras mounted on the side mirrors, bumpers and rear wings which give the driver a 360 degree view of the surrounding.

This is a very important feature and enhances the safety aspect of the Qashqai. Nissan calls this view the helicopter view and the display is available on the monitor fixed at the center console of the car. The dashboard has been designed and fitted accordingly and this vehicle sports the biggest boot in its segment with the Kia Sport Age right behind it.

The Nissan Qashqai is truly a car for most practical and everyday tasks and the company takes this quite seriously. The 360 is the vanguard to the cross over range and has the potential to defend Nissan in the future as well from market competition. The 360 trim has actually enhanced the life span of this vehicle in the market. With a top speed of 118 MPH, this may not be the fastest cross over in the segment but the rate of acceleration is decent considering the size and overall weight of the car.
