From what we know, the 2023 Nissan Qashqai will not offer a diesel engine at all. Instead, the Japanese brand will introduce a new hybrid model with a combined output of about 190 horsepower from a gasoline engine. The new Qashqai will come in two standard variants for customers seeking a more conventional model.
A 1.3-liter turbo-petrol engine with 140 horsepower is [resent in the base trim level. Around 160 horsepower will be supported by a more potent variant. A 12V mild-hybrid system will be installed in both engines. Nissan asserts that it has created a brand-new CVT transmission that will significantly improve driving quality while also increasing fuel economy.
The redesigned 2023 Nissan Qashqai’s interior will be completely revamped. The new platform will increase the cabin’s space, as was already mentioned. Additionally, even though the current model seems sufficient in this regard, we anticipate materials of higher quality. We also expect a modern layout with a sizable tablet-like display.
The upper trim levels will have a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster in addition to a new, class-leading 10.8-inch head-up display (HUD). Nissan will provide further details in the next few weeks. In any event, there will be a lot of cabin improvements, and we’re excited to see the next-gen Qashqai.

Still, many reliable reports are strongly suggesting a new platform for this crossover SUV. With a slightly larger wheelbase, the new model will have a roomier cabin. Nissan will very definitely add new styling, exterior colors, and stunning 20-inch wheels while keeping the V-Motion grille.
