Nissan Qashqai Receives 130HP 1.6-Liter Diesel

Environment

Nissan is replacing the 2.0-liter diesel dCi engine of the European Qashqai with a more eco-friendly 1.6-liter diesel unit that will produce 130 hp.

Nissan has introduced a new and more fuel-efficient 1.6-liter turbo diesel engine in place of the current 2.0-liter diesel in the European lineup of the Nissan Qashqai, and its longer seven-seat sibling, the Qashqai+2. The new diesel produces an output of 130hp and 236 lb-ft of torque, compared to the 150hp and 236 lb-ft of the outgoing 2.0-liter dCi engine. The Qashqai will now accelerate from 30-50 mph in 6.29 seconds, which is faster than the 2.0-liter dCi unit.

As of this writing, Nissan has not release any other performance figures. However, the Japanese automaker says that the downsized engine delivers better fuel economy and lower emissions but maintains the same torque figures and top speed as the engine it replaces. By early next year, Nissan will also launch a version of the Qashqai fitted with a Stop/Start System that will further help reduce CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. Sales of the new Qashqai and Qashqai+2 1.6-liter dCi will begin in October throughout Europe.
