Introducing the World's Most Parkable Car – The All-new Nissan Qashqai
Nissan has created a car with innovative first class technologies and a unique combination of technologies – making the new Qashqai the world’s most parkable car.
As the original Qashqai, which pioneered the crossover segment, the all-new model feels completely at home in the urban environment. Its new technology development has been fine-tuned to make it as intuitive, useful and as easy to use as possible when driving in all conditions.
Nissan Park Assist takes the stress out of parallel parking, one of the most stressful parts of urban driving. The new Qashqai is now available with Park Assist, which works in harmony with Nissan’s ever popular Around View Monitor. It Automatically measures the size on the available parallel parking space and it’s Park Assist actively takes care of steering into the space with the driver controlling just the forward and reverse motion.
This advanced parking system requires a space which is just 80cm longer than the length if the Qashqai to be able to automatically steer the car into the parking space, saving time and avoiding damage to wheels, tyres and bodywork. The Parking Assist can also be used in bay parking, with the driver benefitting from its ‘helicopter view’ provided by the Around View Monitor (AVM) to guide them through the process. Once the system has detected the white lines of an empty bay (required for the system to operate), it will automatically park inside them.
The new Qashqai also has an Around View Monitor which uses the cameras mounted on the tailgate, front grille and beneath each door mirror completing its 360 degree picture. The images are displayed on the new, larger seven-inch NissanConnect screen.
The Qashqai also has cameras which can detect something moving into its critical areas around the car. This system gives an audible warning and highlights the area in which the moving object is detected on the NissanConnect screen.
In addition it’s also available with front and rear parking sensors that deliver audible warnings to the driver when manoeuvrings as well as a visual display via the Qashqai’s dashboard combimeter.
The advanced technology from Nissan are truly useful as long as its reliable and simple to use. As many of the Qashqai’s assistance systems rely on the rear view camera for images and data. With this is mind Nissan have engineered an ingenious solution to keep the lens clear at all times. By integrating a small high pressure water jet and compressed air nozzle, the Qashqai lens recieves a quick and efficient wash and blow dry whenever the sensors detect any deterioration in image clarity.
The new Qashqai’s innovative parking assistance features are just one example of how Nissan is using technology to make life easier for drivers and occupants. In addition to its remarkable parking features, the new Qashqai comes with a unique package of driver aids that not only significantly enhance safety and convenience, but deliver exceptional value to drivers.
