Last week, we reported that Nissan will redesign its most important crossover sold in Europe next year. A credible report from Auto Express said the Sunderland factory in the UK where Qashqais are built is being retooled for a new model which will enter production in December.
Unfortunetely, we could only show you one of Nissan's recent preview concept, since no the new Qashqai was never seen. However, Hungarian graphics manipulator X-Tomi Design did a rendering of what the crossover might look like and released.

We think it's a good bet, considering it imitates Nissan's new design language. Compared to the current Qashqai, this new one will be bolder and more stylish. We could be seeing a lot more customization options as well.

X-Tomi's creation has LED daytime running light in the bumper, which should be optionally available (not everybody needs DRLs) and wedge-like headlights.

We're even more excited about the engine lineup. The Qashqai might be relatively affordable, but it has some big flaws. For instance, the base car comes with an underpowered and thirsty 1.5-liter petrol engine, while the 1.5 dCi diesel is also gutless. Nissan will drop the 1.6 and replace it with a 1.2-liter supercharged three-cylinder, the same engine used by the Micra.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
