Nissan has released the first special edition Qashqai since the second generation model hit the market in 2013.
Based on Qashqai’s top-spec Tekna trim, the Black Edition SV will feature style, safety and tech upgrades but the special crossover will only be offered with one engine option: a 108 horsepower 1.5-liter dCi 110 four-cylinder engine sending power to two wheels and it’s paired with a 6-speed manual transmission.
What buyers will get is of course a new coat of paint, black leather upholstery, black 19-inch alloy wheels, front and rear styling plates, and door entry guards with the words “Black Edition” on them. On the inside owners will see an integrated seven-inch infotainment system with DAB radio, 360-degree Around View Monitor and navigation.
Also coming standard is the panoramic roof with one-touch shade that is a £400 option on the Tekna and Nissan’s passive and active safety features including lane departure warning, high beam assist, traffic sign recognition, forward emergency braking, blind spot warning, moving object detection and driver attention alerts.
Coming in at £27,310, the limited production Black Edition Qashqai costs £450 more than a similarly equipped Tekna yet the model represents around £1200 in savings if you were to buy the options separately.
For those who are interested, production is said to be limited though no exact number has been provided and it is now on sale.
