The 2018 Nissan Qashqai Offers Adventure

The Qashqai is the name for a group of somewhat nomadic people living in the mountainous area of Southwestern Iran. It is also the name of Nissan's compact crossover SUV for the wandering spirit in everyone, including those looking for adventure in Calgary, Alberta.

This sporty, yet sophisticated, ride boasts a few updates for 2018. Nothing dramatic, but enough to improve upon the looks of Nissan's mid-sized SUV.

The 2018 Nissan Qashqai has an updated face with a sleek new headlight design that stares intently down the road at the unwinding highways of Calgary from a sharply contrasted front grill. This grill and the new hood give the Nissan Qashqai in Calgary a much more aggressive appearance as it eats up the miles of roadways in Alberta.

The bold nose gives way to a set of aerodynamic alloy wheels that appear to move even when standing still. These pinwheel wheels offer dramatic optics at cruising speed.

The new Qashqai looks good from behind, too. A shark fin antenna connects the Qashqai to the Nissan Connect EVO navigation system, as well as to all of the best radio stations Calgary has to offer. Narrow taillights aggressively warn drivers following of impending stops and turns.

The Qashqai is Intelligent

The 2018 Nissan Qashqai is all about redefining driving by equipping drivers with a large suite of Intelligent Technologies that increase the safety of the vehicle and boost driver confidence.

From Intelligent Parking Assist to Intelligent Emergency Braking, the Qashqai is designed to look out for its driver and their passengers.

Inside, the interior is laid out to continue the focus on the driver with a sport D-shaped wheel that puts everything under the driver's control with a touch of their finger. The available leather-wrapped heated steering wheel makes driving gloves a thing of the past. Drivers of the Nissan Qashqai in Calgary will like a warm steering wheel on a bitterly cold morning.

The steering wheel is home to push button commands that make it easy to toggle between driving aids. When the driver engages with the on-board driving aids, Nissan displays the function between the dash gauges for ease in reading without disconnecting from the road ahead.

It is easy to see the tire pressure monitor, parking sensors and other features like caller ID with just a glance at the dash.

The Qashqai offers comfortable seating from their new monoform seats that are designed for long distance driving without fatigue. The luxurious seats can be covered in Nappa leather and finished with 3D quilting in the upgraded models.

Since the Qashqai was developed for the nomadic spirit, it is no surprise that the cargo area is fully adjustable and customisable.

Configure the storage area by dropping the rear seats to create a flat floor, or use the smart storage areas for personal items meant to be kept out of sight like purses. The twin cup holders and deep console also offer other storage options.

The 2018 Nissan Qashqai is available in a number of colours and trim options that include premium upgrades like Nappa leather or panoramic glass.
