The designers of Nissan would not have too much labor to get the Qashqai prepared for the United States.

The new 2016 Nissan Qashqai is constructed on the CMF platform hat was found on the second generation of this vehicle model. However, the front fascia of the new vehicle is improved through fixing the redesigned LED headlights. The external charm of the new crossover is increased due to its 19-inch alloy wheels and the LED daytime running lights. Buyers who want to have smaller 16-inch and 17-inch alloy wheels would have pay extra for those wheels. The rear part of the vehicle emerges to be borrowed from the European crossover utility vehicle. The ride elevation does not appear to have altered either, which is at times the case between the United States and European crossover utility vehicles.
