Nissan Qashqai with ProPILOT now on sale in the UK!

You will now be able to purchase the UK’s best-selling crossover, the Nissan Qashqai, with Nissan’s most advanced driver assistance technology.

You can choose to have ProPILOT on the Tekna and Tekna+ models powered by the dCi 130 diesel engine with Xtronic (automatic) transmission.

A Drive Assist Pack is available on the dCi 130 Manual transmission models. This features Intelligent Lane Intervention, Intelligent Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist. The Drive Assist Pack is capable of most ProPILOT features expect the ability to come to a complete stop and then resume driving in traffic.

Nissan GB is offering a special Pilot One Edition of the Qashqai to mark the arrival of the ProPILOT in the UK. This will be based on the range-topping and exceptionally-specified Tekna+ grade and features the ProPILOT. The body colour is Storm White Pearlescent (with metallic and premium metallic options available), the interior uses Premium Plum Nappa Leather, has Xtronic Sports Pedals, a Chrome Exterior Styling pack and Pilot One Edition door entry guards and interior badging. The new Pilot One Edition sits at the top of the Qashqai range.

ProPILOT enhances the driver's control by assisting with steering acceleration and braking. It works in a single lane on highways and is optimised for low-speed and high-speed cruising. ProPILOT takes away the more mundane elements of driving and in return reduces the driver's fatigue, stress, improves safety and enhances overall control and confidence.

Ryan Gains, general manager, crossovers, Nissan Europe, commented: “The addition of ProPILOT will underpin and strengthen the Qashqai’s position as Europe’s number one crossover.”

ProPILOT is activated by the driver simply by using the ProPILOT button on the right spoke of the Qashqai’s steering wheel. Pressing the adjacent SET button maintains current speed and a safe distance from the vehicle in front.  The Qashqai will slow to a complete stop when required in traffic and moves off automatically if the car is stationary for 3 seconds or less. If it’s longer, drivers should press the RESUME button or lightly tap the accelerator.

The ProPILOT status will always be displayed in the combimeter between the two dials in the instrument cluster and visual warnings are supported by audible alerts.

There is a camera mounted in the Qashqai’s windscreen and a radar behind the Nissan badge in the front grille that sends data of the traffic and road conditions to enable the technology to work. 

Ryan added: “ProPILOT is the signature technology within the Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision. It clearly demonstrates our commitment to deliver a more confident, more exciting and more connected future for drivers.”

Upgraded during 2017, the Nissan Qashqai is now available with significant enhancements which further develop its crossover leadership credentials. They focus on four areas – a contemporary new exterior design; higher levels of interior quality; improved driving performance; and the addition of new Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies to deliver even greater levels of customer comfort, reassurance and trust.

The Qashqai is the most successful model in Europe in Nissan’s 83-year history, with approximately 2.3 million sold since the original version was launched in 2007. It is built at Nissan’s state-of-the-art plant in Sunderland, UK. Celebrations to mark the three millionth Qashqai manufactured there took place last month.
