The crossover segment is a crowded one, but the 2019 Nissan Qashqai manages to stand out. With a combination of a spacious, well-built interior and a long list of standard features — not to mention a sprightly powertrain and available all-wheel drive — the 2019 Qashqai is a solid option if you’re looking for a new family car.
The 2019 Nissan Qashqai comes in three trim levels: S, SV, and SL. The S and SV trim levels come with standard front-wheel drive, though all-wheel drive is available. The SL trim comes standard with all-wheel drive.
Powertrain and Performance
The 2019 Qashqai has a single engine option — a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. Depending on the trim level you choose, the transmission it is paired with varies. The S trim comes with a six-speed manual transmission, while the other trims come standard with a Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) with manual shift mode. No matter the transmission you choose, you will get 141 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque.
Inside the Qashqai, you will find plenty of high-quality materials and plush seating for up to five passengers. Heated front seats are standard, offering you a way to get warm during Toronto winters, while the Qashqai’s infotainment system will keep you connected and entertained on the go. Space-wise, this crossover offers 648.5 litres of cargo space behind the rear seats. If you fold down these seats, this number grows to 1,730.2 litres. No matter the trim level, the Qashqai comes standard with the Divide-N-Hide® cargo system, which allows you to create shelf and divider configurations to keep your cargo safe and organized on the go.
Standard and Available Features
