Nissan Australia has added a new grade to its Qashqai lineup, with the ST+ now on sale from $30,790 plus on-road costs.
Following in the footsteps of the new Pathfinder ST+ grade, the Qashqai ST+ adds more equipment to the base model ST including a 7.0-inch multimedia system with inbuilt satellite navigation, DAB+ digital radio, a 360-degree parking camera, heated/electric-folding mirrors and privacy glass for $1300 more than the ST.
The ST+ builds onto the ST’s equipment list, which includes six airbags, AEB with forward collision warning, lane departure warning, moving object detection, push button start, cruise control, 17-inch alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, LED daytime running lights and a leather steering wheel.
The Qashqai ST+ adds equipment such as satellite navigation.
Like all other Qashqai grades in Australia, the ST+ is powered by a 106kW/200Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. Nissan claims that the Qashqai will use 6.9L/100km of fuel on a combined cycle. The ST+ is only available with a CVT automatic, and is front-wheel drive.
Along with the new ST+ grade, pricing for the Qashqai ST and ST-L models have both risen by up to $1000 - the entry ST now starts at $27,490 (+$1000) with the CVT now priced at $29,490 (+$500) and ST-L CVT at $33,290 (+$300).
