screen-shot-2016-09-14-at-14-41-54Nissan has announced a new addition to the Juke, Qashqai and X-Trail line-ups with the introduction of the Nissan Vision range.

The N-Vision Special Versions are designed to promote Nissan’s smart, safety-shield technologies. These features will come as standard in the Nissan Vision line which is positioned between the N-Connecta and range-topping Tekna grades. The key features promoted across all three models are:

  • Around View Monitor
  • NissanConnect
  • Full Colour Rear View Cameras
  • Lane Departure Warning

AVM is part of Nissan’s desire to remove the stress and difficulty from modern-day driving by giving drivers the confidence to manage manoeuvres more easily. It is also an integral part of Nissan’s journey towards ProPilot, the brand’s autonomous driving technology which will debut in Europe on the Qashqai crossover in 2017.

ProPilot is part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, a strategy announced earlier this year as a guide to the brand’s product evolution. It will anchor critical company decisions around how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society, all while remaining focused on creating more enjoyable driving experiences.

The limited-production Juke N-Vision is based on the generously specified N-Connecta grade with the addition of:

  • Safety pack (Safety Shield Technologies including Around View Monitor, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, Moving Object Detection)
  • Exterior+ pack (front and rear bumper finishers, wing mirror covers, headlamp inserts and 18” alloys with coloured inserts)
  • Floor mats with white stitching
  • Metallic/pearlescent paint (no free paint option)

Further comfort and convenience is afforded by the new NissanConnect 5.8” touch-screen navigation and entertainment system; DAB & Internet Radio with 6 speakers; colour reversing camera; electric folding and heated door mirrors; Intelligent Key with Start push button and automatic lights and wipers.

The Juke N-Vision is available in two distinctive colour combinations. A Pearl black metallic exterior with London white interior personalisation and London white Exterior+ pack; or a Storm white pearlescent exterior with London white interior personalisation and Tokyo black Exterior+ pack.

Two engines are offered with the DiG-T 115 petrol version priced at £18,860 OTR (+£195 for Storm white pearlescent paint) or the dCi 110 diesel model at £20,485 OTR (+£195 for Storm white pearlescent paint).

The Qashqai N-Vision is priced from £23,790. The model builds on the N-Connecta specification with the following enhancements:

  • Panoramic Glass Roof with one-touch shade
  • Satin Silver Roof Rails
  • Sports Alcantara and Graphite Part Leather Trim
  • Heated Front Seats
  • Electric Driver Seat Adjustment
  • Dark Headlining

The N-Vision, along with the Black Edition, features the Panoramic Glass Roof as standard, normally a £450 option. The full range of body colours is available with one standard (£0), seven Metallic (£575) and one Pearlescent (£745) paint option. (Prices effective 1st October).

The Qashqai N-Vision is powered by a choice of four refined powerplants – two petrol and two diesel – with CO2 emissions from just 99g/km on the dCi 110 with 17” alloys. The engine/transmission options are:

  • DiG-T 115 (Manual or Xtronic 2WD)
  • DiG-T 163 (Manual 2WD);
  • dCi 110 (Manual 2WD)
  • dCi 130 (Manual or Xtronic 2WD and Manual 4WD)

Standard features include the Smart Vision Pack with Forward Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning and Traffic Signal Recognition; NissanConnect 7″ touch-screen navigation and entertainment system; Around View Monitor; stylish 19” alloy wheels, and one-touch automatic opening power tailgate.
