Nissan Scores With its Sports Utility Hat-Trick
We take a closer look at Nissan’s three Sports Utility Vehicles so you can decide for yourself which is the perfect ride for you.
Design: First up is the Juke. This feisty compact cross over was built to thrill, no doubt about that. This is the perfect choice if you’re navigating life in the vibrant urban jungle.
Performance: One of the big selling points of the Juke is the torque vectoring 4×4-i All Wheel Drive mode which adjusts power side to side on the rear wheels and makes for better handling, especially when taking tight corners.
Technology: Thanks to NissanConnect, the Nissan Juke and your smartphone will hit if off from the get go in a way that brings the world to you there where you are, at the steer of things. Everything comes together nicely with the 5.8” touch screen display and audio system.
Safety: And when it comes to safety, drivers can rest assured that the Nissan’s comprehensive Safety Shield approach is followed with every vehicle that Nissan produces.
Design: Back with a bang and a brand new sleek design, is the well-loved Qashqai with its elegant exterior and premium interior.
Performance: The ultimate urban crossover has improved handling that makes being in the driver’s seat a pure pleasure. Thanks to better chassis control technology, you’re in for a smoother ride than ever. Nissan has worked hard at putting control firmly in your hands so you can drive out onto any terrain with confidence.
Technology: State of the art technological features are non-negotiable these days and the Qashqai is coming to the party with a high resolution 7″ anti-glare touchscreen, smartphone integration and audio navigation, all being part of NissanConnect. Thanks to Bluetooth and USB connections, you can even stay connected to your social networks and apps when on the road.
Safety: There’s great news when it comes to safety. Nissan’s Qashqai’s got every angle covered thanks to its around view cameras and monitor. When in Reverse, you can see what’s directly behind you and with the overhead, you can get a side view to avoid bumping into shorter, out of sight objects, or hitting the kerb. Consider your blind spots covered!
Design: Lastly, we come to the ever-popular big gun in the Nissan stable. On the design front, the big news is its aerodynamic new shape. Suddenly the X-trail seems more luxurious, sporty and elegant than ever before. Not that it’s lost any of its toughness, it has just matured a bit, like a good red wine!
Performance: You’re still in the driving seat of a very capable 4×4 that will take you from the city to the wild outdoors without breaking a sweat. The Nissan X-Trail’s All Mode 4×4 intuitively responds to any challenge for a smooth, controlled ride. You can choose full-time 2WD for ultimate efficiency, while in Auto Mode, your X-Trail will monitor conditions and adjust power between the wheels accordingly. Or you can choose 4WD Lock Mode if you are aware of the challenging terrain ahead.
Technology: The list of features is long, but worth mentioning is a slide sunroof, luxurious interior and vented cup holders in the centre console to keep your drinks warm or cold. Now that’s handy for those long road trips! Another feature that will keep the family happy is dual zone climate control that enables you to adjust the temperature for your side of the car.
As with the smaller SUV’s, connectivity is a given in the Nissan X-Trail and thanks to NissanConnect, you can stay in touch wherever the open road takes you. Your music, navigation and all sorts of useful information is available on your colour touch screen display.
Safety: Packed with driving aids such as Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Warning, the Nissan X-Trail takes safety seriously. The Nissan Safety Shield approach guides the engineering of every vehicle made and is based on the idea that cars should help protect people.
All you have to do now is choose the SUV that’s perfect for you and create maximum impact! There you have it, three good reasons to get excited!
