Australian details for the updated 2018 Nissan Qashqai range have been revealed, with the revised SUV to kick off at $26,490 plus on-road costs.
The price of entry is up $500 over the outgoing model, though the increase is offset by extra equipment and several upgrades to improve ambience and noise, vibration harshness (NVH) levels.
Nissan Australia has issued a recall for 24,800 of its current-generation 2013-2016 ‘J11’ Qashqai SUVs over concerns the wheel arch protector could contact and wear through the brake hose.
The company reports that insufficient rigidity may cause the lower edge of the rear right wheel arch protector to become deformed “under certain limited conditions”. Using the vehicle at high speeds or high loading could cause the wheel arch protector to contact the brake hose.
