About the Qashqai

The Nissan Qashqai is the somewhat unusual name given to Nissan’s incredibly popular and top-selling crossover SUV. It first arrived back in 2006, and in 2013 entered a second generation, and a third-generation in 2021. In its earliest days, it was known in Japan and Australia as the Nissan Dualis, but was discontinued there in 2013, allowing the Qashqai name to come through as the mainstream name for the model.

It sells in many markets alongside the other Nissan SUVs such as the Kicks, Juke and the Rogue.

Nissan Qashqai vehicles have been manufactured in the UK since 2006, and the UK is one country where the SUV has enjoyed particular success. In its current form, the Qashqai comes either with a 1.3L gasoline engine with mild hybrid technology, or a 1.5L full hybrid setup with a 12-volt electric motor adding up to 157-hp in total.

The third generation released in 2021 shows considerable evolution in the overall aesthetic of the vehicle, with sportier lines, a more pronounced rear spoiler, more contemporary headlight design and more. More significant were the upgrades made to the car’s interior.

Where the old Qashqai was often described as dowdy and uninspiring, the new one delivers better visibility, more supportive and stylish seats, a much larger infotainment screen with the latest version of NissanConnect, stitched leather coverings on the dash, and a wider use of high-quality soft-touch materials. Even the buttons and controls have been carefully crafted to offer better feedback and easier use.

Higher trim levels get a 9-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an all-digital instrument cluster, and wireless charging pad. The rear seats have an extra inch of legroom compared to older Qashqai models, and the rear doors have been made to open to almost a 90-degree angle to make loading up child seats easier than ever.

The Qashqai may once have been a dull member of an uninspired SUV family, but it has quickly become a household favorite, and it seems for good reason.

Common Qashqai Warning Lights

The most common warning light that we see people searching for who own a Nissan Qashqai is the master/engine warning light.

It is described as an orange or yellow light that appears in the instrument cluster and represents that there is a fault in the engine or electronics of the car.

By plugging in an OBD2 reader you can diagnose the problem yourself by checking the code given to you by the tool.

You can find the common fault codes for the Nissan Qashqai on our sister site FaultCodes.co.

Usually, the fault stems from faulty sensors or the build-up of dirt inside the engine from oil, fuel or even the air entering the car.
