Comments

Pollutant emissions are, in general, well controlled. However, in the cold ambient temperature test, where the car is tested at -7 degrees, values of non-Methane hydrocarbons (NMHC) and ammonia (NH3), which is not regulated by legislation, are above Green NCAP's upper limits and the car scores poorly in this test.

Comments

On the whole, control of greenhouse gases is respectable, especially that of Methane (CH4) and of Nitrous Oxide (N2O). However, emissions of carbon dioxide in the high-load highway test are beyond Green NCAP's upper limits.

Our verdict

The Qashqai was launched in 2006 and is now in its second generation, with a third expected soon. The car tested here is powered by Nissan's 103 kW 1.3 DIGT (direct-injection gasoline turbo) petrol engine. The car was tested with settings appropriate for the tyres fitted to the car until the end of 2019. Since the start of 2020, more energy efficient tyres, with lower rolling resistance, have been standard equipment and it is likely that the car may have scored better in the Energy Efficiency Index if tested with these tyres. Nevertheless, the car performed well overall. Good control of pollutant emissions, let down only by its performance in the cold ambient temperature test, gives an impressive index of 6.1 in the Clean Air assessment. Together with reasonable control of greenhouse gases, the car emerges with 2½ stars and is unlucky to miss out a 3 star rating.
