Nissan Qashqai n-tec

Qashqai n-tec includes satnav

Joining both the regular Qashqai and seven-seat , the new ‘n-tec’ specification is intended as a technological showcase. Coming in just below the top spec Tekna, its main selling point over the Acenta model below is the standard fit Nissan Connect infotainment system.

Already available in the Micra and , Nissan Connect combines an easy-to-use satellite navigation system with a stereo featuring Bluetooth, full iPod integration and touchscreen controls. For the Qashqai, Nissan has also added a reversing camera.

Prices from £17,645

In addition to this, the n-tec gains 18-inch alloys, panoramic glass roof, satin silver exterior detailing – including the roof rails – and auto-dimming rearview mirror amongst its items of equipment.

All the existing engine and drivetrain options are available, and prices for the Qashqai n-tec start at £17,645 - £1,650 more than the equivalent Qashqai Acenta.

Nissan Connect also becomes standard on the revised Tekna trim, alongside xenon headlights, stability control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and keyless go.

Prices for the Tekna start at £19,245, so no change from before.

Both n-tec and revised Tekna are on sale now. First deliveries are expected in May.
