You can’t help but notice the sheer number of Qashqais (is that even a word?) on the highways and byways of this green and pleasant land of ours at the moment, which confirms to MotorMartin that Nissan got it right first time with their ridiculously popular SUV.
Not wanting to rest on their laurels, Nissan have announced to MotorMartin, through the MotorMartin Towers hotline, that they are pleased to announce that Qashqai models specified with 18” alloy wheels will now benefit from factory-fitted low resistance tyres delivering improved efficiency and reduced cost of ownership across the range. Great news indeed.
As a demonstration of the advantages that a branded tyre can give you, this special tyre design means CO2 and fuel consumption figures now match those of the 17” alloy wheel size, saving £130 in VED payments on some models with lower BIK across the line-up.
The update presents an enhanced offer for fleet and business users with all Qashqais equipped with 18” alloys gaining a 1% BIK improvement. On selected models this means BIK is as low as 19%, with combined fuel economy of up to 74.3mpg. So savings all round.
The improved efficiency of the tyres means dCi 110 engines on Acenta with Premium Pack, N-Connecta and N-Vision grades now deliver CO2 emissions of just 99g/km. DiG-T 115 and dCi 130 4WD versions now emit 129g/km, which means they’re exempt from VED in the first year, saving customers £130.
Kieran McMenamin, Category Manager for Qashqai at Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd shared with MotorMartin that; ‘Qashqai has always offered a great balance of style, technology and affordability so we’re delighted we’re improving the model yet again with these wheel improvements that will reduce cost of ownership, improve environmental credentials and add presence with the slightly larger alloy size.’
And you really can’t say fairer than that.
Where will you go?
