Nissan Qashqai has been on the market since 2007 and it has been a very successful model for the Japanese automaker throughout the Europe.
The second-generation Qashqai prototype has been caught testing for the first time on the roads in UK. The prototype is heavily disguised, showing just a tailgate-mounted spoiler and a more curvier look as well as an overall size similar to the current model.
Engine options from launch will likely include a 1.6-litre diesel and a supercharged 1.2-litre petrol. A plug-in hybrid variant is also expected.
The new Qashqai production is rumoured to start at Nissan’s plant in Sunderland in December 2013, meaning the world debut is most likely already in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
