2021 Nissan Qashqai Midnight Edition pricing and specs detailed: Special edition takes fight to MG ZS T, Toyota C-HR and Mazda CX-30

Could this be the final Qashqai special edition before the reveal of the next-gen model?

Nissan has launched a limited-run Qashqai, dubbed the Midnight Edition, in what could be the small SUV's final year before its next-generation model is revealed.

The Midnight Edition at $35,900 (MSRP) sits above the mid-spec ST-L but below the top-spec Ti in the Qashqai range and adds bespoke black 19-inch alloys, gloss-black bumper elements, roof rails, and wing mirrors; illuminated kick plates, black leather interior trim with extra gloss highlights, and a black headliner as well as six-way electrically adjustable front seats.

The Midnight Edition also scores the adaptive LED headlight package from the top-spec Ti but otherwise shares its specification with the ST-L. Standard items in that variant include a 7.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, DAB+ digital radio, a 4.2-inch multifunction display, a 360-degree parking suite, and keyless entry with push-start ignition.

The Qashqai’s active safety suite at this level also includes city-speed AEB, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and lane departure warning.

The Midnight Edition has a more premium interior than the ST-L which sits below it. The Midnight Edition has a more premium interior than the ST-L which sits below it.

The Midnight Edition also has no mechanical changes, being powered by the same 2.0-litre non-turbo petrol engine (106kW/200Nm) and CVT automatic transmission found in the rest of the range aside from the base six-speed manual ST.

The Midnight Edition is available in five colours and carries Nissan’s five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty.

The Qashqai range recently received a mild pricing update, with Nissan pointing to exchange rate issues as the cause of a slight price rise for every variant.

The next-generation Qashqai has been spotted testing in Europe and is expected to be revealed some time during the course of 2021. It is expected to share the same platform as the current car, but should receive an update to its styling and underpinnings to allow for the presence of crucial hybrid drivetrains.
