Nissan announces three new SUVs for 2020January 28, 2020
The Japanese brand plans to expand its off-road prayer line, despite the fact that now it is not going through its best times.
Nissan went through job cuts, falling profits, and the arrest of former CEO Carlos Ghosn, who was considered one of the top executives in the modern auto industry. At the same time, the brand has not lost its enthusiasm and is ready to offer customers a range of car innovations. So, for 2020, Nissan planned the debut of the updated X-Trail and Qashqai, as well as a new electric SUV, which in a year could become a serious rival for the Ford Mustang Mach-E.
With the new Qashqai, the brand is betting on the European market, since the current SUV is in great demand here. The brand will hold the public premiere in September 2020 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. With the change of generation, Qashqai will receive a changed appearance in the spirit of the compact Juke and the latest Nissan concept cars. For example, Nissan IMQ. Serious refinement awaits and the interior of the third generation crossover. And the dashboard, multimedia, etc. will undergo an upgrade.
Platform changes are not expected. According to forecasts by auto experts, the company can adapt the CMF architecture. The novelty will not have diesel engines, but it relies on ePower hybrids.
This summer, the presentation of the new X-Trail will take place, test prototypes of which have already been tested on US roads. In spy photos we see a crossover with a new dashboard, a separate display for controlling the “climate”, a separate central screen surrounded by familiar handles, and not today’s popular touch elements, etc.
As for the new electric SUV, it will look like the Ariya concept, which debuted in 2019 at the Tokyo Motor Show. Recall, this model, according to the developers, should repeat the success of the Nissan Leaf hatchback. To “hundreds” Nissan Ariya accelerates in less than 5 seconds, and without recharging it will travel about 480 kilometers. Such a “green” SUV will receive a ProPilot 2.0 autopilot.
