That's a whole lot easier to say that "Qashqai," right?

Machined-face wheels with black-painted accents are trendy as can be.

A flat-bottom wheel is an unusually sporty design cue to find in this segment.

That's a 7-inch color touchscreen with navigation and NissanConnect mobile apps and services, but don't look for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, because you'll be disappointed.
