The appeal of the Nissan Qashqai is now greater than ever, thanks to the launch of an upgraded 1.5 litre diesel engine. The enhanced 115 PS unit offers drivers a 5 PS increase in power over the 110 PS of the previous generation.

Torque remains the same at 260 Nm, though the engine now features an all new over boost function. This delivers an extra 5 PS and 25 Nm of torque for up to 15 seconds of driving.

Also new is Selective Catalytic Reduction technology using AdBlue to reduce oxides of nitrogen emissions. This technology allows the engine to meet the latest Euro 6d Temp emissions standard while preserving efficiency and performance.

More than 90% of the engine's components have been modified to deliver these improvements, including the oil cooler module, oil filter, dual mass flywheel, vacuum pump and high pressure fuel pump.

Jean Philippe Roux, general manager, crossovers, Nissan Europe, commented 'The upgrades to the 1.5 litre engine in the Nissan Qashqai further enhance its performance on the road and its appeal to consumers'.

The Qashqai is the most successful model in Europe in Nissan's 83 year history, with approximately 2.3 million sold since the original version was launched in 2007. Today's Qashqai features a contemporary exterior design, high levels of interior quality and refinement, and a dynamic driving experience.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies available on the Qashqai include ProPilot, Nissan's state of the art driving assistance system.
