When the Nissan Qashqai 2017 is released in America it will be a smaller SUV than the models that are being released in the rest of the world. The Qashqai has already conquered European markets and it will probably have a profound effect on the American market as well. Even though medium and large SUVs are dominating the market this new smaller version will make its mark once it is available to buyers. Nissan is a market leader and it has been selling some very attractive models.

The carmaker plans to offer the Qashqai as a replacement for its Rogue. However, the carmaker is not planning to make too many changes to the new Nissan Qashqai 2017. On the outside, the carmaker introduces some fresh lines as well as curves. However, overall the styling remains the same as for previous models though the designers will want to make a few cosmetic changes though the company has not officially provided any information about this.
On the inside, the Qashqai has the same kind of interiors as are found in the Rogue, which is yet another example of the kind of high quality crossovers that Nissan offers to its customers. The main difference in the interiors of the two models lies in the fact that the Qashqai will not have three rows of seats. Also, this SUV boasts of the very best design and in particular it comes with an outstanding infotainment system. Furthermore, the carmaker has also gone to great lengths to ensure better safety of the occupants and it has also ensured that the seats are designed to reduce to a minimum passenger fatigue during long journeys. The instrument cluster is also new and is mounted on the steering wheel for more convenience.
