Pricing has been revealed for the new third-generation Nissan Qashqai, with increases across the board for the latest small SUV


The Nissan Qashqai small SUV is back for its third generation with considerable changes under the skin, with a new turbo engine and enhanced tech to take on the popular Mazda CX-30 and Hyundai Kona.

The entire Qashqai range will have multi-link rear suspension for the first time, along with a stronger 1.3-litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine that produces 110kW/250Nm (up 5kW/50Nm).

Also new to the Qashqai is a revised CVT automatic transmission that, when paired with the turbo triple, returns a claimed combined fuel economy of 6.1L/100km. Nissan says this is a 11 percent improvement over the outgoing second-generation model.

Pricing starts at $33,890 before on-road costs for the base ST variant – up $5300 on the outgoing base model – and finishes at the range-topping Ti which now costs $47,390 – up $8300 based on the last-gen Ti. 

Depending on grade, the Nissan Qashqai will feature a brand-new 12.3-inch infotainment system as well as DAB radio, wireless Apple CarPlay and also wireless phone charging. 

Nissan has confirmed that the Qashqai will be available here in Australia late in 2022.

The much-anticipated Qashqai e-Power range extender hybrid has not yet been locked in for Australian deliveries – though Nissan Australia has demonstrated the e-Power vehicle to media in Australia and a local release of the hybrid is expected to be confirmed soon.

Qashqai features by grade: ST, ST+, ST-L and Ti

The entry-level variant of the Nissan Qashqai range is the ST, starting at $33,890 before on-road costs, which will include standard equipment such as an 8.0-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 7.0-inch driver’s display, intelligent key with push-button start and a six-speaker sound system.

Stepping up to the ST+ ($37,890), owners will receive additional equipment over the standard ST specification which includes fog lights, satellite navigation, 18-inch alloy wheels, a surround-view monitor and the larger 12.3-inch touchscreen for infotainment. 

Next is the ST-L, which steps up in price to $42,190 before on-road costs, but includes more kit such as advanced semi-autonomous driving and safety aids, adaptive LED lights, LED indicators, rear privacy glass, partial-leather accented seats, larger 19-inch alloy wheels, an eight-way power driver’s seat and dual-zone climate control.
