The new n-tec model is positioned between Acenta and Tekna grades, and with prices starting from £17,645, n-tec is available on both Qashqai and Qashqai+2 bodystyles and across all engines, transmissions and body colours.
As the name suggests, technology is a key part of n-tec's appeal and its arrival means the high-tech but Nissan Connect system is now available across Nissan's small and crossover models. Integrated facilities include bluetooth connectivity, five-inch touch screen satellite navigation with 2D/3D map and full postcode search facility, CD with MP3/WMA playback, FM/AM radio, AUX socket and USB port for full iPod connection.
Yet the n-tec story doesn't end there. Large 18-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic glass roof, rear privacy glass, satin silver roof rails and satin silver door handles give real visual appeal while inside specification highlights include an auto-dimming rear view mirror and silver alloy pedals.
The Nissan Connect system now also comes as standard with the Tekna trim level which boasts a kit list worthy of its flagship status in the Qashqai family. Costing from £19,245 Tekna add-ons over n-tec include xenon headlamps with washers, body-coloured door handles, ESP, luxurious black leather trim, heated front seats and keyless entry/ignition.
The introduction of new n-tec and revised Tekna models coincides with the availability of metallic colour Nightshade across the range.
Both Qashqai and Qashqai+2 n-tec and Tekna derivatives can be ordered now from Nissan dealerships with first deliveries expected in early May.New wheels for Nissan Qashqai
