In Europe, Nissan is offering an upgraded 1.5-liter diesel engine for the Qashqai. The enhanced 115 PS unit offers drivers a 5 PS increase in power over the 110 PS of the previous generation. Torque remains the same at 260 N·m, though the engine now features an all-new overboost function. This delivers an extra 5 PS and 25 N·m of torque for up to 15 seconds of driving.
Also new is Selective Catalytic Reduction technology using AdBlue to reduce NOx emissions. This technology allows the engine to meet the latest Euro 6d-Temp emissions standard while preserving efficiency and performance.
More than 90% of the engine’s components have been modified to deliver these improvements, including the oil cooler module, oil filter, dual mass flywheel, vacuum pump and high-pressure fuel pump.
The Qashqai is the most successful model in Europe in Nissan’s 83-year history, with approximately 2.3 million sold since the original version was launched in 2007.
