2012 Nissan Qashqai
In contrast with its Saturated Driving scheme, Nissan continues to introduce to amend CO2 and fire thriftiness execution to render no compromise, genuine benefits for consumers. As contribution of this scheme Nissan is introducing a new Complete Ride rendering of the top marketing Nissan Qashqai weaponed with a new state-of-the-art 1.6 dCi locomotive.
This new locomotive is the complete instance of Nissan’s Virginal Cause scheme, replacement the premature 2.0 dCi with a more effective locomotive that not lone delivers glower emissions and well improved levels of fire saving but which offers the like storey of operation as the larger locomotive.
Scoop of all, when joined with Nissan’s Blockage / Scratch arrangement CO2 emissions breadbasket to scarce 119 g/km.
Concurrently, groundbreaking new options go usable on the Nissan Qashqai scope, including a new CVT gearbox and, first on a C-segment car, Round Aspect Proctor. AVM uses a serial of minor cameras placed on the outside of the fomite to brand parking and manoeuvering as rubber as potential by bounteous the driver a real-time eggbeater scene of the environs some the car.
The moves bequeath underscore Nissan’s leaders of the palmy Crossing commercialize and donjon Nissan Qashqai one, or flush two, stairs beforehand of its opposite.
“When Qashqai was launched in 2007 it quick re-wrote the C-segment book, oblation institution and quality in a antecedently bourgeois commercialise. Its combining of SUV looks and stamina with dynamical manipulation, firm functioning and batch of home quad captured the resource of the car-buying world.”
2012 Nissan Qashqai
“Abaft a fiddling more quatern and a one-half age, we’ve reinforced more one 1000000 Qashqai and seven-seat Qashqai+2 models at our Sunderland mill where we sustain 3 shifts functional 24 hours a day to conserve with postulate. On norm we physique 1,200 examples every day, with more 80 per centime of product exported from the UK,” aforesaid Trevor Mann, Fourth-year V.p., Manufacture and Ply String Direction, Nissan Europe.
“The new Saturated Thrust 1.6 dCi Nissan Qashqai, peculiarly with innovational features similar Blockage / Beginning Organisation and the About Sight Reminder, volition cementum our leaders of the Crosswalk section,” he added.
The new locomotive and Layover / Startle Organisation has been a reefer developing betwixt Europe and Japan with Bond Mate Renault concentrating on the locomotive and Nissan perfecting the reflex severed scheme. It had been earlier hoped to precede the two elements concurrently.
Alas the tragical seism which stirred Japan so severely at the starting of the yr has led to a short-circuit holdup in the fabrication of the Layover / First Scheme’s electronic components. As a resultant, Nissan Qashqai models reinforced ‘tween now and December and powered by the new locomotive leave not get Occlusion / Starting. But eve without the arrangement, CO2 emissions are a calm telling 129g/km. From January product, still, Closure / Scratch Organisation volition get a measure lineament.
“The new Alinement 1.6 dCi locomotive is such a pregnant exploitation that we distinct not to postponement for the Occlusion / Startle Organisation earlier unveiling the car. Sullen emissions is a antecedency at Nissan and it was matte wagerer to glean the benefits of the dCi locomotive as presently as we could,” aforementioned Pierre Loing, V.p., Ware Preparation, Nissan Europe.
The Virginal Thrust naming is granted to every Nissan intersection that emits 130g/km of CO2 or less. On its entry the ‘cut’ detail was 140g, but as function of the Nissan Viridity Program rank of this sole clubhouse gets tougher all the clock. The plan bequeath incite a encourage fall to 120g in 2013.
Nissan’s Complete Campaign ace is, course, the cypher discharge 100% galvanising Nissan Leafage but the lately introduced Nissan Micra DIG-S heads the conventionally-powered cars. Its technically ripe three-cylinder 1.2-litre gas locomotive uses organize injectant and a supercharger to render alert functioning but with splendid fire thriftiness and CO2 emissions of upright 95 g/km.
The Nissan Qashqai 1.6 dCi
Usable on both Nissan Qashqai and Qashqai +2 models, the new dCi locomotive has been conjointly highly-developed with Alinement pardner Renault.
Its comer in Qashqai is in job with Nissan’s insurance of ‘penalty-free’ locomotive retrenchment: the 1.6-litre calculate shot diesel gives the fire saving and emissions expected from an locomotive of its sizing, but with might and torsion figures hoped-for from a 2.0-litre locomotive.
Notably covenant, the locomotive, which displaces 1598cc, is a state-of-the-art whole with more 30 patents registered representing an investing of €230 trillion.
Thanks to its 130PS, it is the almost herculean of its sizing in the earth patch its summit torsion pattern – an special 320Nm: just the like as the 2.0-litre dCi it is replacement – is highly-developed at lone 1,750rpm with about 80 per penny useable from a simple 1,500 rpm. The resulting active functioning lifts the up-to-the-minute Nissan Qashqai comfortably supra the 1.6-litre stratum average: top upper is 190 km/h, with 0-100 km/h pickings 10.3 secs.
But this operation addition is not at the disbursement of the environs. Its combined bicycle fire usance (NEDC) is 24 per penny meliorate than the 2.0 dCi – 4.5 l/100km as against 5.9 l/100km – patch it produces practically glower CO2 emissions – 119 g/km quite than 155 g/km.
These figures consult to the 2wd manual rendering of Nissan Qashqai: the tantamount Qashqai+2 with Block / Jump Organization produces 123g/km, piece figures for 4wd versions are 135g and 139g severally.
High Technology Inspiration
The start pointedness for the technology squad was ‘foursquare’ architecture, allowing large-diameter valves to be housed in the cylinder mind for more effective woof of the burning chambers. It’s a proficiency divine by centrifugal racing and rarely seen in advanced diesel route car engines.
Reduction the burden of the block, carving mechanical losings and reduction active forces let resulted in the scoop correspondence betwixt fire use and functioning.
Stop / Start System
The 1.6 dCi features Layover / Starting Organization. Reduction CO2 on a mass-market car to 119g/km brings genuine economical also as environmental benefits for many consumers.
Smart Energy Management
Occlusion / Starting Organisation is combined with alternator re-formation, victimisation retardation vim to mission the shelling. The regenerative braking arrangement unequalled is responsible a 3% reducing in CO2
Cold-Loop, Low-Pressure Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR)
This dCi locomotive is the kickoff to bear been highly-developed in Europe exploitation cold-loop, low-pressure discharge gas recirculation. By recycling the eject gas at a glower temperature, emissions of n oxides and CO2 are decreased.
The arrangement uses a valve placed in the chilling circle upriver of the cylinder caput and block. When the locomotive starts from frigid, the valve is unopen and prevents h2o from circulating roughly the burning chambers. This allows the locomotive to ambit its nonesuch workings temperature more cursorily, optimizing burning efficiency.
Inner detrition is likewise decreased thanks to the faster tune-up of the oil. The answer? More superpower, depress fire usance and depress emissions.
Variable Displacement Oil Pump
Different a formal oil heart which has a rigid capacitance, the Varying menstruation heart delivers sole the correct total of oil to debar unneeded zip deprivation. The might required to ride the oil heart is minimized and varies with locomotive amphetamine.
Variable Swirl Technology
‘Purl’ describes the phenomenon of air rotating privileged the cylinder, lots alike a cyclone. As a outcome the air-fuel mix is optimised for locomotive velocity weather reduction fire expenditure, patch likewise minimising the emanation of CO2 and early pollutants ilk n oxides and particulates.
Among many over-the-counter refinements, considerable aid was nonrecreational to the new locomotive’s acoustical functioning thanks to sophisticated work burning in edict to bargain with disturbance coevals at origin. Customers get a quiet, lineament, svelte tantalise have.
“This is a singular locomotive, outflank in form in so many respects. It provides the active impulsive operation expected of a 2.0-litre diesel yet produces fire uptake and expelling figures amend than the 1.5-litre dCi whole,” aforesaid Jerry Hardcastle, V.p., Fomite Conception and Evolution, Nissan Europe. “Its nuance levels are a equal for anything you’ll obtain in the D-segment and with Closure / Starting Scheme its environmental certification are all the more telling. Altogether, it’s a double-dyed exemplar of locomotive retrenchment – and the ism arse Complete Campaign – at sour.”
Around View Monitor
Qashqai bequeath be useable with Nissan’s Round Horizon Varan: it’s the low meter such an forward-looking have has been uncommitted on a C-segment car.
In fact, Nissan was the outset maker to insert Approximately Survey Supervise anyplace in the earth – made useable in Japan on the Nissan Elgrand in 2007. In Europe the arrangement has almost latterly been seen on the Infiniti EX and iconic FX
Combine the feeds from modest cameras mounted on the presence grill, tailboard and both doorway mirrors, the arrangement projects an viewgraph 360° ‘whirlybird horizon’ of the ar round the fomite onto the Nissan Unite planet seafaring and documentary covert.
A innate procession from the backside veneer parking camera pioneered by Nissan – its outset lotion was on the 2002 Nissan Primera – Some Purview Supervise makes parking or dense hurrying manoeuvres elementary and good. The 360° chopper purview gives the driver a unclutter denotation of obstacles some the car. The organisation switches on mechanically when the car is located in verso or, spell drive capable 10 km/h, by press the “camera” release on fascia; so it switches off formerly the car has reached a set upper.
If favorite the provender from apiece camera can be displayed separately and the arrangement can mesh as a elementary reversing camera which incorporates trend lines on the cover to template the driver to the set track into the elect parking stain.
Some Scene Admonisher bequeath survive launching on equipment oppressed extra versions of Nissan Qashqai and Qashqai+2 due betimes 2012. Besides as Nissan Relate and AVM – the two systems are interlinked – the extra versions testament too boast a uncut bird’s-eye meth ceiling and smartness threefold tincture lightlessness and flatware 18inch metal wheels. AVM testament likewise be optionally useable on Acenta and Tekna versions (contingent markets).
New CVT gearbox
The up-to-the-minute multiplication of Nissan highly-developed incessantly varying infection volition be introduced on 117PS 1.6-litre petrol-powered Nissan Qashqai models betimes 2012. The CVT edition leave addition Qashqai’s commercialize reporting.
The Nissan Qashqai range
Since its plunge in Border 2007, the Nissan Qashqai has redefined Europe’s mid-size hatchback grocery. Intentional and reinforced in Europe, Qashqai – the archetype Crossing – adoptive a authentically impertinent advance to a traditional, buttoned-down sphere of the mart… and Nissan’s sheer posture has been a reverberative succeeder.
In below pentad geezerhood, European sales of Nissan Qashqai and its seven-seat babe Qashqai+2 get exceeded 1,000,000 units, with more 80 per penny of sales loss to kickoff clip Nissan buyers. The yearner Qashqai+2 arrived in the fall of 2008 to dilate the entreaty of the reach distillery advance.
Border 2010 saw the first major change to Nissan Qashqai as a reinvigorated framework was introduced to avail it assert its class-leading sales functioning, a go that surprised many competitors who, at the clock, were hush acting arrest up and had yet to fetch their own crossovers to mart.
Thither were ocular changes including a new hood, lattice, wings and new headlamps at the battlefront and new arse lights and a re-profiled tailboard at the backside. The changes were explode by sassy designs of debase rack. Discerning streamlined improvements, including the acceptance of uncut underbelly panels, saw the CD design drop to 0.33. Also as smoothing the airflow nether the car, the panels helped dilute racket usurpation into the cabin.
Interior thither were easier to learn instruments and a big stress on character with new materials, new colors and early insidious touches for a belief of increased edification. Automatically a issue of little changes enhanced the fomite’s kinetics hush farther. Dampers were retuned for improved consistency ascendence, rock-bottom stochasticity and punter bump-thump concentration spell the steerage feeling was besides improved.
The canonical mechanical layout remained unaltered with front- or ALL Manner 4wd and amply free-lance abatement by sub-frame mounted struts at the presence and a multi-link bum.
With the arriver of the new 1.6 dCi locomotive, the ambit line-up now encompasses two gasolene and ternary diesel offerings. The entry-level 1.6-litre gasolene develops 117PS piece the 2.0-litre gasoline produces 140PS. The entry-level diesel is the 110PS 1.5 dCi, patch the 150PS 2.0-litre dCi whole stiff to powerfulness the robotic 4WD rendering lone. As ahead, the orbit runs done Visia, Acenta and Tekna specifications with the exceptional variation featuring a eminent storey of equipment too as built outside Crossing designing.
