Photos and Images of the Nissan Qashqai Interior

With this new generation, Nissan has lifted the Qashqai from one of the also-rans in the segment in terms of cabin execution towards the top of the class – particularly as far as the ST-L and Ti are concerned.

Swathes of soft-touch, leatherette-padded surfaces, high-quality upholstery and high-resolution displays all combine to offer a tangibly upmarket ambience, giving the likes of the Mazda CX-30 some proper competition, and even the more premium marques.

The Qashqai maintains its big-car feel up front, with an upright and broad dashboard fascia giving an impression of height and width, while the elevated driving position will appeal to those wanting a commanding view.

Seat comfort in the ST-L and Ti is good with their respective cloth/leather combination and quilted leather seats, with the former offering power driver adjustment and the latter offering power adjustment for both front seats including driver memory and massaging functions for both front occupants.

Ergonomics are sound, with clearly labelled switchgear and physical HVAC controls (hooray!), while the slot for your phone and cupholders between the front seats complement the deep centre cubby under the padded centre armrest.

One particular highlight of note are the door bins up front, which can accommodate my chunky Frank Green 1L water bottle – something most cars lately can’t seem to muster, other than the VW Golf and Tiguan.

While the blue leatherette accents throughout the interior seem to work with the exterior colour our Ti test car, I question whether it matches with all of the Qashqai’s other exterior paint choices. Plus, some people may simply dislike having blue upholstery accents – let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

The second row has long been a Qashqai strong point in the compact class, and this new generation continues that trend in the face of newer competition.

As a four seater, the Qashqai can happily carry six-footers behind taller front occupants, and the addition of rear air vents and USB-A and USB-C charge points are welcome additions over its predecessor.

A third can squeeze in the middle at a pinch, but if you’re regularly ferrying lanky teenagers I might suggest walking across the showroom floor and looking at an X-Trail.

There’s also a fold-down centre armrest with cupholders, map pockets behind both front seats, and bottle holders in the rear doors. Kiddies are catered for with ISOFIX anchors on the outboard seats, as well as top-tether points across all three rear positions. The rear doors open nice and wide, too.

We will note the Ti’s fixed panoramic roof, while very panoramic in outward view, does eat into rear headroom a bit. It also felt like the Qashqai’s vast glasshouse across the front, sides and roof made the cabin particularly hot during Melbourne’s very hot Christmas period.

Nissan Qashqai Colours

What colours are available for the Nissan Qashqai?
  • Gun Metallic
  • Ceramic Grey
  • Platinum
  • Burgundy
  • Fuji Sunset Red
  • Ivory Pearl
  • Magnetic Blue
  • Pearl Black

ST+ grades and above can be optioned with two tone designs, namely:

  • Ivory Pearl with Pearl Black Roof
  • Pearl Black with Gun Metallic Roof
  • Fuji Sunset Red with Pearl Black Roof
  • Two-tone Ceramic Grey with Pearl Black Roof
  • Magnetic Blue with Pearl Black Roof

Cost of Ownership

What is the running, servicing and ownership costs of buying a Nissan Qashqai?

Scheduled maintenance is required every 12 months or 15,000 kilometres – whichever comes first. This is better than the X-Trail’s 10,000km intervals (countered by slightly cheaper services). You can pay as you go, otherwise Nissan offers Pre-Paid Maintenance Plans covering three, four or five years.

Pricing for each respective time period is as follows; $1467$2494 and $2916. Note that covers one service per year, averaging out to $500-$600 per annum which is on the higher side but not the most expensive we’ve seen.

How it Drives

Our expert take on Nissan Qashqai drivability?

The 2023 Nissan Qashaqi's new engine is a 1.3-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder making 110kW of power (5500rpm) and 250Nm of torque (1600-3750rpm), driving the front wheels through an ‘X-Tronic’ CVT.

It comes standard with stop/start and three driving models that tweak throttle response; called Sport, Normal and Eco.

These figures are up 4kW and 50Nm over the 2.0-litre naturally aspirated engine that powered the old model.

While not available at launch, the new Qashqai will also be the first Nissan in Australia to offer an e-Power series hybrid, in which a petrol generator drives an electric motor, which in turn drives the wheels.

Nissan Qashqai Safety Rating

ANCAP Safety Rating Australia

The 2023 Nissan Qashqai received a five-star ANCAP safety rating across its entire model and variant range using crash testing data from Europe.

The five-star rating applies to Qashqai ST, ST+, ST-L and Ti models, with Nissan small SUV having scored 91% in Adult Occupant Protection, 93% in Child Occupant Protection and a near-perfect 97% in Safety Assist.

Standard equipment on all grades includes:

  • Front, front-side, curtain, and front-centre airbags
  • ISOFIX x 2, top tethers x 3
  • Autonomous emergency braking (AEB)
  • AEB for junctions, pedestrians and cyclists
  • Reverse AEB with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Lane-departure warning with active lane intervention
  • Active blind spot intervention
  • Traffic sign recognition
  • Adaptive cruise control with speed limiter
  • High beam assist
  • Tyre-pressure monitoring
  • Seatbelt reminders front and rear

The ST-L and Ti add:

  • Front parking sensors
  • ProPILOT lane-centring aid
  • Alarm system

Ti adds:

  • Intelligent Park Assist with Parking System Monitor

Nissan Qashqai Warranty

What is the warranty period and kilometre limit for the Nissan Qashqai?

Nissan provides a five-year warranty, roadside assist and capped-price servicing. Service intervals will be 12 months or 15,000km.

Nissan Qashqai Infotainment

What infotainment do you get within the range?

ST+ and up score a huge 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system featuring wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto, as well as embedded satellite navigation with live traffic updates, AM/FM/DAB+ digital radio, six-speaker audio, as well as USB-A and USB-C connectivity up front.

ST-L and Ti grades add a wireless smartphone charger, while the flagship grade exclusively gets a quality 10-speaker BOSE premium audio system with digital amplifier and BOSE Acoustimass Bass Box technology, in addition to a 10.8-inch colour head-up display and a 12.3-inch TFT digital instrument cluster with configurable views and menus.

At times the centre touchscreen can be a little laggy and the digital instrument cluster isn’t as customisable as the stuff from Volkswagen.

Further, Nissan doesn’t offer net-based connected functions on the Qashqai like we’re seeing from other brands, namely Kia and Toyota, as well as the premium marques. Not a deal-breaker, but worth a mention.

Nissan Qashqai Boot Space

How much luggage or cargo capacity and boot space is there in the Nissan Qashqai?

the Qashqai remains one of the largest in the class.

Quoted luggage capacity for ST, ST+ and ST-L models is 429 litres with the rear seats in play, expanding to 1524 litres with them folded. The Ti’s rear-mounted subwoofer reduces those figures slightly to 418L/1513L respectively.

It’s on par with the Kia Seltos (433-468L) and isn’t far off the mid-sized Mazda CX-5 (442L).

The Qashqai Ti also gets Nissan’s nifty Divide-N-Hide configurable boot floor, split into two segments so can split the luggage area into different compartments, create an underfloor cargo area, as well as raise and lower the boot floor height.

All models are fitted with a temporary space-saver spare, measuring 155/90 R17.

Nissan Qashqai Fuel Economy

How much fuel does the Nissan Qashqai use and what are its emissions?

Despite offering greater levels of power and torque, the new Nissan Qashqai’s downsized turbo engine uses less petrol: a claimed 6.1 litres per 100km on a combined city /highway cycle test. However, it requires premium 95 RON petrol.

The fuel tank stores 55 litres.

As for real-world fuel consumption, our holiday loan yielded an indicated readout in the low 8.0L per 100km range – though that’s under mixed conditions during a very hot summer with plenty of running about the ‘burbs. Similar conditions in the previous iteration would have seen you in the nines or tens.

We will note that we saw a consistent instant readout of 5.0L/100km and below when travelling at 100km/h, with extended stints quickly bringing that trip computer average into the sevens.

Given the Qashqai has a large 55-litre fuel tank, you could get 1000km between fills if you spend most of your time on relatively flat freeway or highway. Not bad.

Nissan Qashqai Dimensions

The dimensions of the Nissan Qashqai

The new Qashqai measures 4425mm long, 1835mm wide (sans mirrors), 1625mm tall, and uses a 2665mm wheelbase.

This makes it 31mm longer, 29mm wider and 30mm taller than the old car, with a 19mm longer wheelbase.

The new Qashqai weighs between 1451kg and 1524kg (kerb) depending on spec grade, with a 1985kg gross vehicle mass.

Ground clearance is listed as 180mm, and the turning circle 11.1m.

Suspension-wise, the new Qashqai uses a MacPherson strut front setup, and independent rear suspension with multiple linkages. An electric park brake is standard.

Its towing capacity is also up 300kg, to a claimed 1500kg.

The 2023 NISSAN QASHQAI measures 4425mm long, 1835mm wide and 1625mm tall, with a 2665mm tall wheelbase.

The 2023 NISSAN QASHQAI has a braked towing capacity from 1500kg to 750kg depending on the variant and an unbraked towing capacity of 750kg.

Nissan Qashqai Sales Data

How well has the Nissan Qashqai been selling?

Last year Nissan sold 542 Qashqais, 244 of which were December registrations of the new-generation model, given the old one had been out of production for sometime.

For reference, the 2021 calendar year saw 5750 units registered Down Under, and that’s a shadow of the nameplate’s success last decade, where for some time it was one of the segment leaders.

issan Australia says it’s received strong interest in the new Qashqai, including the upcoming e-Power hybrid version coming sometime later this year, and when the media launch drive took place in mid-December the brand had already locked in over 1500 orders. Mind you, pricing and specifications have been public since July.
