MILD HYBRID - EFFICIENCY WITH ENTHUSIASM
A mild hybrid shows enhanced fuel efficiency compared to a traditional petrol engine, specifically in urban driving scenarios and emits less CO2 emissions whilst driving . The mild hybrid system features a lithium battery that stores energy recovered during braking. The recovered energy supports the vehicles electrical systems allowing the start/stop system to activate in more situations to enhance fuel efficiency. Furthermore, aluminium has been used on the doors, bonnet & wings to reduce weight and improve performance.
Take full command of your Qashqai with the slick shifting 6-speed manual transmission. If you prefer Automatic, Qashqai’s next-generation Xtronic Continuous Variable Transmission gives you a smooth connected drive, while steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters let you enjoy greater control.
Intelligent 4WD with 5 Modes

To help you go farther between fill-ups. Eco Mode optimises the engine and other driving functions so you can drive with better efficiency.
Normal mode is a balance between performance and economy providing a driving experience suitable in all conditions.
Sport Mode gives livelier engine response by simulating higher rpm shift points. On Xtronic transmission the sport mode enhances handling by holding rpm during cornering for added power coming out of a turn.
Snow Mode 
Snow Mode modifies accelerator mapping, and transmission tuning for less wheel spin and more grip. The Intelligent 4WD system also adapts by starting with all four wheels engaged.
Off-road Mode 
Tuned to handle dirt, sand or gravel. Off-Road Mode enhances traction and control by adjusting the throttle response, transmission, and Intelligent 4WD system for optimal performance.
