All-New 2023 Nissan Qashqai – Perfect Crossover SUV. The third-generation 2023 Nissan Qashqai has launched with four variants. Having originally slated a Q1 2022 arrival for the new Qashqai, Nissan’s shipment of Qashqais was delayed until January ’23, with the first examples in driveways now.
Initially arriving with just one powertrain available in the form of a new 1.3-litre turbocharged petrol, it’s tipped Nissan’s Qashqai e-Power hybrid cwill follow later this year.
Having already launched overseas, the new-generation Qashqai rides on the Nissan/Renault CMF-C platform, now featuring multi-link suspension to refine its ride.
As expected for the upcoming model, pricing is up over its predecessor, with the new-generation Qashqai starting out at a $3300 premium over the entry-level outgoing offering, while the top-spec Ti has now jumped up by $8300.
Prices exclude on-road costs.
Qashqai ST $33,890 (+$3300)
Qashqai ST+ $37,890 (+$5300)
Qashqai ST-L $42,190 (+$7590)
Qashqai Ti $47,390 (+$8300)
Two-tone roof $500
Nissan has said the new Qashqai will be available in five colours: magnetic blue, Fuji Sunset red, Ceramic grey, Ivory pearl and Super black. A contrast roof will be available for an extra $500.
It’s also worth noting that while the new Qashqai has Apple Carplay and Android Auto, only Carplay is wireless. Android Auto remains a wired-only feature in current new Nissan models.

Engine, drivetrain and fuel economy
The new Qashqai features a fresh engine with the 1.3-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder petrol replacing the existing 2.0-litre, naturally-aspirated four-cylinder unit.
Power and torque figures are up to 110kW and 250Nm – an increase of 3kW and 50Nm respectively over the outgoing model – while fuel consumption is down, now at a combined 6.1L/100km compared to the previous 6.8L/100km.
The better fuel economy can also be attributed to the Qashqai’s new CVT gearbox, providing a 14 per cent ratio coverage improvement and a 29 per cent friction reduction over the old transmission.
Towing capacity has also been enhanced, now up by 300 kilograms to a solid 1500kg braked.
Compared to the current Qashqai, the next generation will increase in size across every measurement – now standing at 4425 millimetres in length (+31mm), 1625mm in height (+30mm), and 1835mm (+29mm) in width, with its wheelbase of 2665mm now up by 19mm over the 2021 model.
Boot space has risen with the back seats up, but is reduced when folded, with a capacity of 480 litres (+50 litres) when upright, increasing to 1422 litres (-176 litres) when laid flat.
The Qashqai boasts a five-star ANCAP safety rating thanks to a host of features to keep its occupants protected, including:
Forward emergency braking
