Specs

For the 2016 Nissan Qashqai we are getting total of four engines, two are gasoline and two of those are diesel units and each comes with turbocharger. Gasoline include two turbocharged units, base version comes with 1.2 liter capacity that delivers 115 hp and 190 NM of torque. You would think that it will not be enough for the vehicle of this size but it comes as a quite adequate choice. Those that want slightly more can take the 1.6 liter inline four with 150 hp and 240 NM of torque it is capable of delivering much better performances than the smaller 1.2 liter unit. Both units will need 5.6 liters per 100 km but that is on the European test so we can expect to see much higher fuel consumption.
