Nissan Qashqai 1.6 dCi “Pure Drive”.

The good reputation of the Nissan Qashqai is confirmed with the name “Pure Drive” reserved for cars with CO2 emissions below 130 gr. per km. The popular Japanese crossover features the new 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine with 130 hp and 320 Nm of torque at 1,750 rpm, which will burn only 4.9 liters every 100 kilometers, combined to the six-speed manual transmission, all that available at show rooms from 23,000 euros.

Reported by the car maker, the new Qashqai 1.6 liter diesel is delivering 130 hp and 320 Nm of torque,which is the same torque as the one delivered by the 2.0 dCi unit, allowing the 2012 Nissan Qashqai 1.6 dCi to hit a top speed of 193 km/h. All Nissan Qashqai 1.6 liter versions and Qashqai +2 will benefit from a six-speed CVT re-configured transmission and the Pure Drive name is offered to every car in the range, which is emitting not more than 130 g of CO2 per kilometer.

The Nissan Europe vice president Paul Willcox said: “Nissan crossover models dominate the industry due to innovative design and technology efficiency. With this new diesel-powered car engine, we offer all of our customers the benefit of lowered emissions amount and at a high efficiency of the vehicle while travelling. The Nissan Qashqai engine is exceptional, the best in its class in many different ways. It offers the same dynamic on the streets as the 2-liter dCi engine, but fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are at the same rate or lower than those corresponding to our existing Nissan Qashqai 1.5 liter dCi engine”.
