- Nissan’s best-selling crossover vehicle to receive limited edition changes
- Over 16 000 Nissan Qashqai models sold in South Africa to date
- Four new models complete comprehensive range
ROSSLYN, South Africa (26 April 2013) – Nissan has announced the introduction of four new models to its Nissan Qashqai range in South Africa boasting special features and a limited production run.
The new Nissan Qashqai Limited Edition models will join the existing Nissan Qashqai range this month and are set to continue its success story as Nissan’s best-selling passenger vehicle in South Africa.
The world loves Nissan Qashqai
Not only proving immensely popular in South Africa, where it has racked up over 16 000 sales since it was introduced in 2007, the Nissan Qashqai crossover has proved a revolutionary success all over the world. Proof of its popularity lies in the fact that more that 1.8 million units have been sold globally since Nissan Qashqai was first launched, a figure which continues to grow since this epic milestone was reached.
Created as a compact crossover between a hatchback and an SUV, the Nissan Qashqai is the embodiment of Nissan’s innovative thinking and ability to give customers exactly what they want – leading the market where other manufacturers have had to play catch-up or be left behind. The Nissan Qashqai is an innovative, trendy and exciting crossover with a wide mix of engines, transmissions and even seating specifications; a car for everyone and everything.
With a bold take on evolutionary design, efficient urban packaging and brand new special features, the new Limited Edition Nissan Qashqai models are more than ready to continue Nissan’s dominance in the crossover market when they arrive in late April 2013.
New Nissan Qashqai Limited Edition
Encompassing four new variants based on existing Nissan Qashqai models, the new Limited Edition models bring even more style, pizzazz and expression to the range. The new derivatives include the new Nissan Qashqai 1.6 Acenta Limited Edition, 1.5 dCi Acenta Limited Edition, 1.5 dCi Acenta Limited Edition with glassroof and the new Nissan Qashqai 2.0 Acenta Limited Edition with glassroof.
The new Limited Edition models build on the strengths of the current Nissan Qashqai range, adding trendy and premium enhancements to the already popular styling and specifications, catering for discerning individuals who will not compromise on style.
Exterior changes on new Nissan Qashqai Limited Edition models include unique 18-inch diamond-cut black alloy wheels, gloss black roof rails, matching gloss black mirror caps, privacy glass and, on the two top models, a luxurious panoramic glass roof. Interior changes include cloth and leather combination seats with accented white stitching, matching door and gear lever surround trim with white stitching and a gloss black finish for the door handles and gear lever surround. Pearl White metallic paintwork is also available on the new Nissan Qashqai Limited Edition models, adding further class and style to the range.
These Limited Edition changes to Nissan Qashqai not only create a sense of individuality for new buyers, but offer exceptional added value as well – extras to the value of over R10 000 only effect a minimal price differential of R4 000 to the 1.6 Acenta and 1.5 dCi Limited Edition models compared to their existing siblings. The two new range-topping Nissan Qashqai Limited Edition variants which feature the glassroof reflect a comparable price increase of R8 000 while featuring extra enhancements to the value of almost R20 000.
Manager of Product Marketing for Crossover Vehicles at Nissan South Africa, Nancy Reddy says the new Nissan Qashqai Limited Edition models are sure to create a stir in the segment and add extra strength to the already dominating Nissan Qashqai name. “The Nissan Qashqai is undoubtedly a jewel in Nissan’s crown, having sold in extraordinary numbers the world over and becoming the benchmark for crossover vehicles since its bold inception. The new Limited Edition models will bring even more choice to the market, further bolstering the Nissan Qashqai as the perfect family crossover vehicle.”
The new Nissan Qashqai Limited Edition models are set for a limited production run of twelve months and are priced as incredible value-added packages versus their current-model siblings, offering all the benefits and added luxuries of a high-quality, premium crossover at compact hatchback and sedan price levels.
