Nissan has revealed its updated Qashqai crossover hatch, due to go on sale mid next year.
The refreshed Qashqai receives an upgraded aggressive front end, with new headlights, grille and bumper.
Out back styling remains largely unchanged, however the taillights gain new LED lenses, and small tweaks for improved aerodynamics and reduced drag.
The drag coefficient on the Qashqai has dropped from 0.34 to 0.33 with the 2010 update.
Inside, the instrument cluster has been redesigned and a new drive computer lives between the main dials.
Low-level lighting has been fitted around the front footwells, to assist with nighttime visibility when entering or exiting the 2010 Qashqai.
Noise, vibration and harshness has been improved for 2010, with the addition of an ‘acoustic’ windscreen and a new multi-layer insulation material fitted around the front bulkhead.
More information is likely to be revealed as the launch for the 2010 Qashqai draws closer.
