Nissan's Qashqai, was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2004. Described
as a 4x4 crossover vehicle that's equally at home in town and the country,
Qashqai explores new niche markets for Nissan.
It is the first project to come out of Nissan Design Europe, just one year after the studio was opened at the Rotunda in London. Exterior designer Matthew Weaver said: “You can use Qashqai around town, in the country and at the weekend. The upper half is sleek, dynamic and sporty while the lower half is in the style of a more traditional 4x4.” This dual personality is in evidence all over the car. The flared wheel arches are definitely sporty while the gap between the tyres and the bodywork look more off-road 4x4. Unconventional, too, with rear-hinged back doors and no central B-pillar.
Clive Hartley, who was responsible for the interior of the Qashqai, said: “Qashqai is a car for those with an unconventional lifestyle. Open the doors and the interior is airy and roomy as well as being very versatile. You can even store a bicycle in there, upright and without removing the wheels.” The minimalist look, with no carpets, gives the impression that this car can be easily cleaned up after a weekend in the country. This is a new type of car, alternative in its interior and exterior design.
And the name? It's pronounced cash-kye and is the name of a desert-dwelling nomadic tribe living near the Zagros mountains in South Western Iran.
