Nissan Introduces "Night" Version of Qashqai

This crossover will only be available in Australia.

Nissan has expanded the list of second-generation Qashqai modifications in Australia by adding a new version called the Midnight Edition. Among the differences are special exterior and interior details, opaque headlights and completely black wheels.

The Qashqai Midnight Edition features a glossy black radiator grille instead of chrome plated V-shaped one. The same color is used for side moldings, rear-view mirror housings and roof rails. The bumpers and moldings on the wheel arches are not black, like that of the standard Qashqai. They repeat a selected body tint. There are five colors available: Gun Metallic, Magnetic Red, Ivory Pearl, Vivid Blue, and Pearl Black.

The new Qashqai is equipped with 19-inch Black Wind light-alloy wheels shod in low-profile tires (225/45).

The interior of the crossover is also further “darkened”: its door panels and dashboard are decorated with frosted plastic inserts. A new ceiling trim is completely black. A steering wheel and a transmission lever are covered in genuine leather, which is also used for seat upholstery along with Alcantara.

Like the standard versions of the Qashqai, the Midnight Edition has an independent suspension with anti-roll bars. The Australian Qashqai is powered only by a 2.0-liter 144-hp direct-injection engine and an Xtronic CVT.

In September, it became known that the Japanese company had to postpone the start of mass production of the third-generation Qashqai until April 2021. The reason was financial difficulties caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
