Qashqai Model: Still looking for one....

Hi - new to this forum and am looking to buy my first Qashqai! I rang my local dealer (as Nissan keeps telling everybody to do) and they said that there will be new facelift models arriving next week. The sales guy then asked if I wanted to buy one, but I said I'd like to see it first - he seemed surprised ....

I just checked canadian Nissan site and it seems that Qashqai is being offered there with Diesel 2.0 engine, Xtronic CVT and All-wheel Drive (4x4).

Mikey, you are correct but I believe you will find these QQ's are produced in Japan although European Designed. The versions are S / SV / SL with the 2,0L MR20DD (141hp) petrol engine. There appears also to be some improvements like the new Steering Wheel design.
The Rogue Sport (US QQ J11A) was launched to replace the smaller version of the US Nissan Rogue S / SV / SL and this also has the 2,0L engine etc...
In Australia they also have the QQ ST / Ti / TS / TL with a 2,0L engine.
I totally agree with your comments that the European Countries miss out on a lot of design features, it appears something we just have to accept Nissan Policies - Dave :)

Maybe they don't need to do these models in EU and GB they sell every car they are making .....need to get into these markets. Can't make them any faster

Dave, I think it is the old old story in North America there is that US Accessory called "Fully Loaded" which in short means nearly everything is thrown in for a price way way lower than the EU Prices. The North American QQ's come from Japan with Japanese Engines but the Chassis / Suspension is to EU Specs - Dave :oops:

We also(Australia) do not get an AWD version.It seems Nissan(AUS) decided there was not a big take up rate on the previous model.(Ours are sourced out of the UK.Cheers:):)

Nissan will build a spec for the country they are being deployed in. They will take a bit of a gamble with engines but overall if a 4x4 version wont sell that well there is no point in putting the infrastructure in place to build/sell them.

With their face lift versions they also tend to drop some engines. IE The Micra they generally drop the larger engines silly because most people want smaller engines. Given dealers comments regarding the 1.6DIG-T engine model and how they have not sold that well, I'm surprised to see it in the line up still!

IF you REALLY want a 4x4 version, they clearly build them so its not impossible to get your hands on one if you are determined enough!
