Nissan's UK built Qashqai and Qashqai+2 have undergone a number of upgrades and are now EURO V emissions compliant.
A Stop/Start features has been added for the first time as an option on 1.6 litre petrol variants. For just £200 over standard models, the system automatically stops the engine when the driver pulls to a standstill and puts the car in neutral, starting automatically when the clutch is pressed enabling you to pull away.
This fuel saving and emissions reducing system has assisted to make the the Qashqai an even greener choice and also drops the vehicle down one VED tax band. In the diesel line-up every model now benefits from diesel particulate filter technology with the addition of DPF to the 1.5-litre dCi engine.
Nissan Sunderland Plant has a workforce of 4,700. The Qashqai and Qashqai+2 are produced entirely at the plant with over 80% of the vehicles produced exported to 45 markets worldwide.
