Small engine with big power at Fred Coupe Nissan

Fred Coupe Nissan’s most popular model is literally going the extra mile in terms of efficiency thanks to the availability of a trio of updates including two new petrol engines and a new DCT automatic transmission.

The Nissan Qashqai – Europe’s best-selling SUV – is now available at the Prrestondealership with the all-new, class-leading 1.3-litre DIG-T petrol in a choice of 140PS and 160PS outputs.

Combining punchy performance with optimum efficiency, the new engine replaces the previous 1.2- and 1.6-litre petrol engines, delivering significant improvements in fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and driveability. Both outputs offer up to 53.3mpg (NEDC-BT) and CO2 emissions as low as 121g/km.

The advanced engine is matched to a six-speed manual gearbox, while from November the 16PS version will be available with an all-new seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) – the first time such a system has appeared in a mainstream Nissan model.

More good news for Qashqai buyers is that the new petrol engine benefits from longer servicing intervals – lowering customers’ maintenance costs – and, in 1.3 DIG-T 140 Acenta Premium specification, has been awarded a class-leading 50.7% residual value by pricing experts CAP HPI.

John Coupe, Managing Director, said: “The launch of this all-new 1.3-litre engine is exactly what our customers are looking for, meeting their needs for a highly effective petrol engine that blends driving performance with fuel efficiency.”

It makes the Qashqai more attractive than ever and, even better, the new versions also represent excellent value – the entry-level model being available at a price that is simply unrivalled in its segment. We’d be delighted for customers to experience the new engine with a test drive, so invite them to pop by our showroom or call us to arrange a convenient time.

Prices for the new petrol engine start from £19,595 OTR RRP for a Visia 1.3 DIG-T 140.
