Nissan has confirmed pricing for the first version of its all-new Qashqai.

The third-generation of the best-selling family SUV was unveiled in February and is due in showrooms soon, ahead of customer deliveries beginning in the summer.

Ahead of the full range going on sale, Nissan has revealed pricing for the limited-run Premiere Edition which will be the first model available to buyers.

The high-spec model will be available in two drivetrain variants, priced from £29,270. Buyers will be able to choose from a 1.3-litre mild hybrid petrol with 138bhp and a six-speed manual transmission or a 156bhp version of the same engine mated to a Xtronic automatic gearbox. The auto version will cost £31,790.

The Sunderland-built Qashqai is largely credited with helping launch the boom in C-segment SUVs but the second-generation, launched in 2014 has begun to lag behind its latest rivals. Nissan says this all-new version will return it to the top of the market with new drivetrains, technology and improved passenger space.

Premiere Edition models will showcase the range’s latest technology with a nine-inch central touchscreen for navigation and media functions alongside a 12.3-inch configurable digital instrument display. They will also feature a 10.8-inch head-up display, adaptive LED matrix headlights and be available with the brand’s ProPilot driver assistance pack.

Standard equipment also includes a panoramic sunroof, 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, 15W wireless phone charging and wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity, four USB ports and home-to-car connectivity with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa functions.

Premiere Edition Qashqais will be offered in a range of two-tone exterior finishes which contrast a black or grey roof with blue, grey or white bodywork.

Andrew Humberstone, managing director of Nissan GB, said: “The All-New Nissan Qashqai sets the bar even higher in the competitive C-SUV segment and we are confident it will more than live up to customer expectations.

"The Premiere Edition is a compelling package for those wanting to be the first to experience new Qashqai’s cutting-edge design, convenient and intuitive technologies, and dynamic, efficient performance.”
