This summer, the seven-seat version of the Nissan Qashqai will make its debut at the London Motor Show, which starts on July 23. This comes after the Qashqai was a huge success for Nissan, with more than 170,000 units sold so far (Nissan also had to re-arrange worldwide production to meet the demand for the crossover, as we’ve reported here).
The car looks pretty much like the current Qashqai, however, to make room for the extra seats, several adjustments had to be made such as lengthened roofline and re-profiled rear. The car’s wheelbase was extended by 135 mm, while the length and width went up by 211 mm and 38 mm respectively. Also, the overall weight increased by 100kg because of the extra size and seats.
The upcoming seven-seat Qashqai will be offered with four engine choices, a 115 hp 1.6-liter petrol with 160Nm, a 141 2.0 liter with 200Nm, a 106 hp 1.5 dCi with 240Nm and the top of the line 150 hp 2.0 dCi with 320Nm. 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions will be offered.
