Top 5 subcompact SUVs: the 2021 Nissan Qashqai is a showstopper!
Subcompact SUVs have become increasingly in demand: their small size means they are practical for city driving, like a sedan, while still being roomy, like an SUV. They’re also usually well suited to more severe weather conditions and more economical than a full-size SUV. The choice is obvious for many consumers; but with so many models to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which ones to pick. Here are our top 5!
Baie-Comeau Nissan, located on the Côte-Nord near Pointe-Lebel, Chute-aux-Outardes and Godbout, shows you how the 2021 Nissan Qashqai stands out from the competition. Whether you’re looking for a new or pre-owned vehicle in Baie-Comeau, your Nissan dealership is the place to go for exceptional service.
Nissan vehicles in the spotlight!
Plenty of Japanese vehicles have been ranked at the top of the podium, including the Subaru Crosstrek, that comes with standard all-wheel drive and optional manual transmission.
The Crosstrek’s appeal lies in its ruggedness on the road and its driveability, as does the new Mazda CX-30, which comes with a high-performance engine in the GT configuration. The snag is that while this version is certainly powerful and luxurious, you do have to spend a fair amount of money on it, which might not be right for some buyers’ budgets.
From the Korean automakers, the Kia Seltos, also new to the market, is equally worth considering for its driveability and storage space.
Two Nissan vehicles also rank high on the list: the Nissan Kicks, a fun, youthful, urban vehicle, and the Nissan Qashqai, its more robust counterpart. The Qashqai is another model that offers a manual transmission or a CVT, along with the option of all-wheel drive.
The 2021 Nissan Qashqai distinguishes itself by the high quality of its interior and exceptional comfort of its seats, designed with Nissan’s Zero Gravity technology. The front seats can be heated quickly, a welcome feature in the cold seasons, and the seats can be upholstered in leather for an even more luxurious experience.
The gorgeous interior is loaded with the latest infotainment technologies, including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth. You might also want to opt for a Bose premium audio system; the volume adjusts automatically when shifting gears.
Your Nissan vehicle simplifies tasks by displaying a variety of messages on the dashboard, including the title of the music you’re listening to. Clear and precise navigation directions can also be displayed, making the system much easier and safer to follow than on your phone!
The same goes for the ProPilot Assist Driver assistance system, which lets you monitor both the speed and distance between yourself and vehicles up ahead. Several other driver assistance technologies are also available, including lane departure prevention, collision warning and road sign recognition. You could even add a smart perimeter display, so with this modern SUV, your peace of mind is assured.
Although the Nissan Qashqai is an urban vehicle, it is also well suited for long trips out of town. Its cargo space makes it ideal for travel: with space ranging from a capacity of 566L to 1727L you can easily carry all your belongings and cargo so there’s no need to leave anything behind! Add to that other useful configurations, like the under-floor space and the Divide-N-Hide storage system for an even more practical driving experience.
In short, the Nissan Qashqai is nothing short of amazing and also very comfortable, this vehicle goes even further by offering exemplary safety mechanisms, up-to-date technologies and a slew of commodities.
