Qashqai gets Connect 2.0

Once upon a time a new car launch or model upgrade was all about the engine, the power and the handling but, in this modern digital world ‘connectivity’ takes centre stage – as it does with the refreshed Nissan Qashqai range now with NissanConnect 2.0.


Nissan South Africa has this to say about it: “NissanConnect is an advanced infotainment system that enhances the relationship between you and your vehicle through the seamless and intuitive integration of your smartphone with your Qashqai. With a host of features that make every day commuting and communicating even more of a breeze, the NissanConnect 2.0 infotainment system now allows you to connect and interact with your car like never before.”

In terms of the car upgrades – the range now gets Intelligent Forward Emergency Braking, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Blind Spot Warning and Intelligent Cross Traffic Alert; features previously available only on the Tekna derivative.
