After over two million sold models, the 2020 Nissan Qashqai will hit the roads once again. This time, this small crossover will get some updates and refreshments. The second-generation of Qashqai is still present so there won’t be complete revamp, at least not yet. However, the new model will get sharper and sportier look than the current model. The interior will offer even more standard and optional features and the cabin room will be generous as always before.
The 2020 Nissan Qashqai will ride on three engine options, two gasoline, and a single diesel unit. All of the drivetrains are efficient and generally, driving characteristics are superb. The ride feels smooth and quiet, handling is great and the safety rating is among the best in the segment. If you want real luxury, opt for Qashqai TI model.
2020 Nissan Qashqai exterior offers an astonishing look
The biggest changes on the 2020 Nissan Qashqai will happen in the exterior department. In our opinion, the 2020 model will be the best one so far. Latest updates are providing much sharper look with more muscles. Moreover, sportiness is present in the new Qashqai. Up front, angular headlights and somewhat larger grille are looking brilliant. The front fascia looks curvy and polished fog lights are completing the astonishing look of the front part.
To the sides, Qashqai looks like a real SUV, but the rear end is more hatchback-like. This crossover rides on 18-inch alloy wheels but you can get optional 19-inch wheels. The rear spoiler looks wider and sporty. Speaking of wider, the 2020 Nissan Qashqai will see some dimensional changes and it will be slightly wider about 0.80 inches.

On top of that, Nissan’s Safety Shield is providing great safety rating.
The 2020 Qashqai now offers sign recognition, blind spot monitoring, forward emergency braking and adaptive cruise control, all as standard. The room inside the cabin is even better thanks to the latest dimensional changes. That means the trunk space is bigger and legroom is ampler.
