Improved Efficiency Given To The Nissan Qashqai, Here's How

Nissan has announced that the Qashqai models specified with 18-inch alloy wheels will now benefit from factory-fitted low resistance tyres delivering improved efficiency and reduced cost of ownership across the range.

The special tyre design means CO2 and fuel consumption figures now match those of the 17-inch alloy wheel size, resulting in savings of up to £130.

This update presents an enhanced offer for fleet and business users with all Qashqai’s equipped with 18-inch alloys gaining a 1% BIK improvement. On selected models this means BIK is as low as 19%, with combined fuel economy of up to 74.3mpg.

The improved efficiency of the tyre means dCi 110 engines on Acenta with Premium Pack, N-Connecta and N-Vision grades now deliver CO2 emissions of just 99g/km and the DiG-T 115 and dCi 130 4WD versions emitting a respectable 129g/km. As a result they’re exempt from VED in the first year.

Karen McMenamin, Category Manager for Qashqai at Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd said: “Qashqai has always offered a great balance of style, technology and affordability so we’re delighted we’re improving the model yet again with these wheel improvements that will reduce cost of ownership, improve environmental credentials and add presence with the slightly larger alloy size.”
