The second generation of the Nissan Qashqai will probably make its debut in the next couple of months and already the Sunderland factory that will produce it is being retooled for production.
We have speculated in the past that the basic 1.6-liter base engine will be replaced by a 1.2-liter DIG-S engine like the one fitted to the Micra. However, British magazine AutoCar contradicts that today with a report that states the base engine will actually be another type of 1.2-liter.

They say that the Qashqai will come with the 1.2-liter DIG-T engine, a four-cylinder turbo, not a three-cylinder supercharged unit. This same engine is fitted the Renault models like the Clio GT and the facelifted Dacia Duster.

For its Nissan Qashqai application, it will offer 115 PS, according to AutoCar, and about 180 Nm of torque.

The other engine options for this second generation crossover will be the 110 PS dCi diesel and the 130 PS 1.6 dCi.

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.
