Nissan may release a coupe version of Qashqai to take on the Evoque

Nissan is considering a plan to build a sportier version of its Qashqai compact crossover that will target the Range Rover Evoque. Marco Fioravanti, Nissan Europe's general manager for product planning and strategy, remarked that the coupe-styled version of the Qashqai could capture the attention of consumers in Europe where crossover coupes have become popular thanks to the Evoque.

"We are observing the moves of other automakers such as Audi, Honda and Volvo. We will not stand watching," Fioravanti remarked during a press event for the new Qashqai in Madrid, Spain. A source has confirmed to Automotive News Europe that Nissan is mulling a coupe-styled Qashqai.

Fioravanti said that the Japanese carmaker will not build a Qashqai hybrid version.  "Our traditional engines have excellent fuel consumption, “he said. “We want to keep a high 'value for money' formula on the Qashqai."

3rd-gen Nissan Qashqai gets design inspiration from IMx Concept seen at 2017 Tokyo Motor Show

The current Nissan Qashqai (known as the Rogue Sport in the US) has been around for about three years now, and it also recently went through a facelift. In Europe, the model is very important for Nissan as it has been a huge success for them, being the automaker’s best-selling compact crossover in continent, and the best-selling model built in the United Kingdom. The Qashqai is not only popular in Europe as the automaker has also commercialized this C-segment CUV in larger markets all over the world.

To keep its success continuous, Nissan must play its cards right for the next and third generation Qashqai. And already, the Japanese automaker mentioned that the next Qashqai will have some similarities with the IMx Concept that is currently on display at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, when it comes to the design.

Alfonso Albaisa, who acts as the company’s senior vice president of global design, says that the IMx concept is just a design study, which means that it will probably never reach the production line. However, he did say that we should expect a production model that will be bigger than the Juke, and it will also get some of its design elements from the IMx. Of course, we should not expect the 2020 Qashqai to look very much like the show car and that it will definitely not be as flashy, but some of the concept cues will be having a road-going equivalent. Albaisa said that the IMx’s strong features will definitely be toned down for the production model.

Range Rover Evoque celebrates six years of success with Landmark Special Edition

It has been six years since Land Rover introduced the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. Since then (2011), the Ranger Rover Evoque compact luxury SUV has been one of the carmaker’s best-selling models. Testament to this is the fact that in six years, Land Rover has managed to produce and move around 600,000 units of the Range Rover Evoque.

Certainly, this milestone calls for a celebration. To make that celebration more realistic, the British carmaker is introducing a limited edition of its compact luxury SUV – the Range Rover Evoque Landmark Special Edition. This special edition pays tribute to the Range Rover Evoque’s critically acclaimed design, all-terrain capability as well as unparalleled appeal.

The new Range Rover Evoque Landmark Special Edition is wrapped in Moraine Blue finish -- a color that takes inspiration from the turquoise lakes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains – although it could also be finished in Yulong White and Corris Grey. It is fitted with a dynamic body kit and comes with a number of exterior design details in grey. This includes the Carpathian Grey contrast panoramic roof as well as the Graphite Atlas grille and bonnet. The fender vent and the tailgate lettering are also finished in Graphite Atlas. The new Range Rover Evoque Landmark Special Edition rides on 19-inch Gloss Dark Grey alloy wheels.

Since the Qashqai SUV was first released by Nissan in 2013, it has gone on to become the best-selling crossover in Europe. During the early part of this year, there were reports that the Japanese automaker may be releasing a revised version. That appears to be true as Nissan has officially unveiled the 2017 Nissan Qashqai Facelift during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Qashqai owners know that one of the benefits of this model is that it allows for a more confident drive. Even with the number of modifications, the new version is able to continue having that excellent outstanding performance. Because of the improvements done to the steering system, damping system, and the suspension system, the new Qashqai is able to offer a road experience that is more refined than usual.

With better utilization of absorption materials plus the glass in the rear being made thicker, it’s ensured that noise experienced in the cabin is lowered. The selection of the different-sized wheels help as well since they have all been optimized in terms of aerodynamics in order to maximize the efficiency.

It isn’t merely speculation anymore – Nissan is bringing the Qashqai mid-size crossover to the United States, but with a different name. In fact, Nissan has confirmed that this mid-size crossover will have its debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show, widely known as the Detroit Auto Show.

As we have reported, Nissan intends for the Qashqai to fill the size gap between the smaller Juke and the larger Rogue. The addition of the Qashqai – the best-selling mid-size SUV in Europe -- as a complement to the Juke and the Rogue would allow Nissan to benefit from the seemingly insatiable hunger for SUVs in the US, where motorists have been switching from passenger cars to utility vehicles. While there is a real business case for the US launch of the Qashqai in the US, Nissan was expected to rename the SUV since American buyers might have some trouble pronouncing “Qashqai.”

Nissan did rename the Qashqai as the new Nissan Rogue Sport. Nissan eventually decided to use the Rogue moniker – with the Sport suffix – as it is already a known nameplate in the US. Mike Bunce, Nissan North America vice president of product planning, remarked that since Nissan managed to build a lot of equity on the Rogue, it only makes sense to piggyback on its popularity by renaming the Qashqai as the Rogue Sport.

This rumor is not something new – it has been lingering since 2015 – that Japanese carmaker Nissan is bringing its Qashqai to the United States. The best-selling mid-sized crossover in Europe could be coming to American soil with a possible debut this month at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, The Truth About Cars reports citing sources with knowledge of the matter.

Nissan has been experiencing increasing demand for the larger Rogue SUV in the US. With this, the Qashqai could be marketed in the US as a more compact and more economical version of the Rogue. In fact, the Nissan Qashqai features a number of similarities with the Rogue. While both are underpinned by the same architecture, the Qashqai is shorter than the Rogue by around 10 inches. Moreover, the wheelbase of the Qashqai is shorter than that of the Rogue by two inches. These dimensions meant that the Qashqai offers a smaller cargo space on the rear than the Rogue.

Should speculations be true, then Nissan would be able to slot the Qashqai between the Juke and the Rogue. Until now, there has been a gap between the Juke and Rogue. By introducing the Qashqai to North American customers, Nissan could effectively bridge this gap between the smaller Juke and the larger Rogue.

Nissan is intending to exhibit two special versions of its popular crossovers, the Qashqai and the X-Trail, at the upcoming 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The show car duo – the Qashqai Premium Concept and the X-Trail Premium Concept – are essentially different models but feature similar themes, colors and materials.

Both SUVs are wrapped in a vibrant yet elegant black and white palette as contrasted by a premium golden copper. The Qashqai Premium Concept and the X-Trail Premium Concept are creations of Nissan Design Europe (NDE) in London and Nissan’s Global Design Centre (GDC) in Japan, respectively.

Since both the Qashqai and the X-Trail play a big role in Nissan's success in Europe, the Qashqai Premium Concept and the X-Trail Premium Concept demonstrate the carmaker's intention to cater to more customers in more markets.

Nissan responds to the increasing demand for the Rogue in the U.S. by tapping its Japanese plants to add 100,000 units to its annual output starting next year. This gives Nissan the capacity to sell more than 300,000 units of the compact crossovers in the U.S., which is slightly higher than half of what it sold only a couple of years ago. Sources also revealed other changes to the Rogue lineup.

They said that a hybrid version will be introduced in 2016. Meanwhile, the European Qashqai crossover will be sold in the U.S. as a more compact and more frugal version of the Rogue. Nissan will drop the cheaper Rogue Select. The European Qashqai has many similarities with the Rogue and is built on the same architecture but it is shorter than the American Rogue by 10 inches.

Its wheelbase is also 2 inches shorter. The Qashqai has a smaller rear cargo space than the Rogue but its rear design is more stylish. It’s not clear what powertrain will be used by the U.S. Qashqai. But a British car-buying website revealed that Nissan's European business unit had newly given the Qashqai a 1.6-liter gasoline engine that produces about 53 U.S. mpg.

The Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept was unveiled back in 2012 at the Geneva Motor Show and despite Nissan’s decision to drop the Murano CrossCabriolet, Land Rover seems determined to offer an open-top version of its crossover.

The company could offer the Evoque Convertible also with a big refresh for their popular vehicle and we could see the new Ingenium four-cylinder engines.

Just like the concept version, we expect the Evoque Convertible to feature a fabric roof, which will transform it into an open-top vehicle in no time. Details are limited for the moment, but we expect the new convertible crossover to hit the showrooms in less than 12 months.

Land Rover is planning file a complaint with Chinese authorities over a local SUV it claims is too similar to its Evoque SUV, a report by Autocar says. The alleged copy – the Landwind X7 SUV– was unveiled at the Guangzhou Motor Show in China last week.

The X7 looks too much like the Evoque, and even bears the similar font and the lettering positioning on the hood. Land Rover chief executive Ralf Speth told Autocar that the “fact that this kind of copying” is happening in China is “very disappointing.”

He noted that that such copying should not happen since the intellectual property involved is owned by Jaguar Land Rover. He added that any infringement of that intellectual property will be a breach of international regulations applicable globally.
