2019 Nissan Qashqai gains 1.3L turbo, dual clutch transmission in Europe

The Nissan Qashqai has been updated in Europe with a new 1.3L turbo I4, infotainment, and the brand’s first DCT in a mainstream vehicle (the GT-R doesn’t count!).


The new 1.3L is available in three different formats:

  • 103kW (138hp) and 240Nm (177 lb-ft) with a 6-speed manual
  • 118kW (158hp) and 260Nm (192 lb-ft) with a 6-speed manual
  • 118kW (158hp) and 270Nm (199 lb-ft) with a 7-speed DCT

    The new 1.3L engine was developed by Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi and Mercedes-Benz, and is already used in Renault cars and the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

    The 1.3L engine replaces two gas engines: an 85kW (114hp) 1.2L and a 120kW (161hp) 1.6L.

    Other changes to the European Qashqai include a new NissanConnect infotainment system over the air map and software updates, and support for the Door To Door smartphone nav app.
