•New DIG-T 163 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine joins Qashqai range
•Fully compliant with strict new EURO6 emissions regulations
•Fuel consumption from 48.7mpg (with 16/17" wheels) CO2 from 134g/km
•Fastest Qashqai in the current range with 0-62mph in 9.1 seconds
•Qashqai petrol range complete with new Xtronic gearbox on 1.2 DIG-T
•Available to order now with deliveries from January 2015

Nissan is expanding its acclaimed Qashqai range with the addition of an advanced new DIG-T 163 petrol engine. Fully compliant with strict EURO6 emissions regulations, the new 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbocharged unit combines sharp performance with low CO2 output and exceptional fuel economy.

Tuned specifically for the Qashqai, the new DIG-T 163 engine features advanced turbocharging technology and a host of additional features designed to maximise performance and economy. The new unit develops 163PS (120kW) of power at 5,600rpm and 240Nm of torque between 2,000 and 4,000rpm. These impressive figures highlight Nissan's downsizing philosophy and prove that you don't need a large capacity to deliver strong acceleration and in-gear flexibility.

As with all engines in the new Qashqai range, the new DIG-T 163 is equipped with Start/Stop ignition system and delivers the kind of smooth, responsive and high quality driving experience that Nissan customers have come to expect. Acceleration from 0-62mph can be achieved in just 9.1 seconds - making it the fastest Qashqai in the range - while top speed is rated at 124mph.

Even more impressive are the new DIG-T 163's fuel efficiency and emissions figures. Models equipped with the new engine return from 48.7mpg on the EU Combined cycle, while CO2 emissions are from 134g/km for models equipped with 16" and 17" wheels, and 138g/km for models equipped with 18" and 19" wheels.

The new DIG-T 163 engine is available in front-wheel-drive form and equipped with a six-speed manual transmission.


Broadest choice ever for Qashqai buyers

The arrival of the new DIG-T 163 powerplant completes the Qashqai's petrol engine line-up and sits above the existing 1.2 DIG-T unit. Developing 115PS (85kw), this Alliance-developed four-cylinder unit packs a real punch, offering sharper acceleration and greater flexibility than many 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engines.

Equipped as standard with Start/Stop, it is packed with fuel-saving technologies, including a regenerative alternator, optimised gear ratios and special low-viscosity oils.

For those who prefer the ease and simplicity of automatic transmission, the 1.2 DIG-T unit is now available with Nissan's advanced Xtronic gearbox. Based on the principle of a constantly variable transmission, the Xtronic gearbox been engineered to deliver a smoother, more natural driving experience.

Unlike conventional variable transmissions, the Qashqai's Xtronic gearbox mimics the behaviour of traditional, multi-ratio automatic gearboxes during hard acceleration, with stepped changes. In gentler driving, the ratios are subtly adjusted to give ultimate smoothness. This means the Xtronic transmission offers the best of both worlds for drivers, with ultra-smooth low-load power delivery and direct performance during higher acceleration driving.

Do we think that Nissan will ever bring out a 2.0l tdi? There in my mind a big gap there, and another 40-50 bhp would be very appealing. Would stop Nissan QQ owners potentially leaving for the VAG powered cars.

Doubt it they have two large engines the 3.7 and 3.8 in the Z and GTR cars, they need to produce an average emissions across the range to avoid penalties.

Nissan are committed to a plan called 20/2020 and that is is for 20% of cars to be Zero Emissions, by 2020.

New technologies in small engines are key.

The VAG owners will now of course be wondering about emissions and the tax hikes they face.
