In the third generation, the all-round delicately and also qashqai expanded to a size of 4.43 meters with plainly obvious style lines. In the interior, nonetheless, the plus remains small, although the Nissan is six centimeters longer than the ATECA as well as the wheelbase is slightly bigger.

The Qashqai cabin with individually designed digital tools as well as head-up display screen appears rather functional. Additionally, an abundance of aid systems aids the chauffeur in all feasible circumstances, the helpers vary to energetic lane as well as rate (navibased and dependent on the course), the system is to be operated through buttons or the touchscreen.

turbo gas engine as well as automatic

Both compact SUVs remain in usual by means of turbo gasoline engine (for the Seat with a small bigger variation), additionally the front wheel drive and the automatic-stepless Xtronic for Qashqai, seven-speed dual clutch transmission in the ATECA.

Finally, the exact guiding, which ensures an excellent dosage of driving satisfaction in contours, in which the ATECA continues to be neutral for a very long time up until the ESP interferes late. Sporty sovereign as well as risk-free! Nissan is most likely to target a type of middle ground. Possibly the majority of the clientele the lower line is neither also soft nor an as well tight adjusting. The Qashqai does not desire to carry out particularly in regards to sporting activity, although the postponed brakes would have right stuff. In enhancement, he has the armada of conventional chauffeur aides compared to ATECA.
