The current generation of the Nissan Qashqai crossover has been in service since 2013, so a generation change is not far off. Photospies detected a prototype of the new crossover, which is undergoing finishing tests, but its appearance is still hidden by dense camouflage. Unfortunately, the photos were taken from a distance, so it is quite difficult to see the details, although radical changes in the design of the Kashkai are not expected — apparently, after the change of generation, the car as a whole will retain its usual image.
But there will be plenty of changes in the interior: as expected, the” third ” Qashqai will have a seriously redesigned front panel and a new media system. According to preliminary information, diesel will disappear from the European range of engines, and gasoline engines will get 48-volt starter generators. It is possible that the range will include a full-fledged hybrid version with the ability to recharge the battery from the socket, but you can not wait for a fully electric modification, this segment in the Nissan model range will be responsible for the Ariya crossover. The official premiere of the new Kashkai may take place before the end of this year, but sales of the car will definitely not begin until 2021.
