Turning features benefits

J my business school Marketing always said, “Features are useless to your clients. them into benefits, you will have something to So it turned out that a slightly the blazes would I ever do this?” feature of the Nissan + 2 I drove recently, became useful, but more on that

Released to SA buyers in August Nissan’s Qashqai minivan has on to rack up over 5 500 sales in a competitive market swamped almost 200 SUVs, MPVs, and more of the same disguised manufacturers’ nomenclature designed to you believe they have new niches.

Actually, Qashqais two sub-segments because while are 4x2s, one diesel version four-wheel drive on demand. the +2 we drove was a 2,0-litre 4×2 petrol version with two seats in a third row, fold away into the when not needed. So there we it; feature – two more seats, – Mom, Dad, three and two from next door can all go to the together.

Isn’t Marketing

Refreshed this past with new bonnet, bumper, and headlamps at the front, brighter LED and stop lamp clusters and a rear gate spoiler, a new drive computer and other refinements, the new Qashqai is quite a up from the old one. Other include footwell illumination and stash spaces.

Body changes to improve efficiency include the reprofiled spoiler, additional underfloor and deflectors around front and wheels. Engine changes in reduced internal friction and thermal and volumetric efficiency. Improved fuel economy and torque over a wider rev

Noise levels have reduced by means of a new multi-layer material around the front an “acoustic” windscreen and improved sealing to reduce wind around the “A” pillars.

Safety kit in the Qashqais includes ABS, six airbags, ISOFIX anchorages for seats on the two outer chairs in the row and a very robust frame. models gain ESP, control and roof rails.

To help accommodate the additional in the +2, wheelbase is extended by 135 mm and overall by 211 mm. For extra headroom, the roofline has lengthened and reprofiled toward the adding 38 mm to overall height and 6- to 10 mm for and second row occupants. By itself, still means that the seats can really only be by little people, but when aren’t in use, the additional space should allow an couple of suitcases.

Inside, one a driver’s seat with adjustment, a single-CD and radio with Bluetooth phone dual channel automatic air power windows all ‘round, mirrors that fold, a wheel that adjusts for and reach, with sound and controls on the boss, sturdy upholstery, a decently-sized glove box and storage in the dash, the doors and in a cubby that also the auxiliary input for portable boxes.

Second row seats split for longer loads or easy to the third row. They adjust fore and aft to afford leg space to those sitting at the back, although it must be that adults in the second row need these chairs fully back. The same be said for seat back adjustment in the second row – the only available are “comfortable” and “too

Moving right to the back, the door opens and closes and the loading sill should be to most users. With the seats tumbled away, the is big, with a compartment by a loose carpeted board, at the back. This houses the triangle in its orange plastic and also provides a no-snoop for small valuables.

My problem was it’s a bit narrow and not very hence the feeling of “what the would I ever do with It came into its own on a tour of the Meander; that odd narrow easily accommodates 14, or possibly a more, black plastic with herb plants at the local nursery.  It also them just sufficiently to them falling over and potting soil all over the so there’s your benefit. The is a space saver.

Driving the Qashqai is pleasant, the 2,0 litre engine providing all the a family needs for town and driving. Steering is light and visibility makes parking a Cruising at 120 in sixth (top) the engine loafs along at over 3 000 rpm.

Opinion? A and pleasant family bus with for both average broods and comprising “yours, mine and provided they aren’t all big teenagers yet.
