In this video, Simone reviews the latest 2018 Nissan Qashqai in the ST-L trim. The new Qashqai will be available in four trim levels, three of which are available now.

The exterior got some noticeable changes for 2018. And there is now one petrol engine choice which is a 2.0 litre with 106 kW and 200 Nm of torque. There is no longer a diesel engine option for the Qashqai.

These new updates are well needed for Nissan’s latest Qashqai to remain competitive against other small SUVs like the Hyundai Kona, Mazda CX-3, and Toyota C-HR.
