Following on from the success of the QASHQAI, with over 250,000 sales, Nissan have announced the Nissan QASHQAI Sound & Style. Based on the top of the range Tekna model which already offers dual zone climate control, full length panoramic glass roof, Intelligent Key and Xenon headlamps.
The Nissan QASHQAI Sound & Style comes with unique 18 inch alloy wheels, exclusive purple-black Nightshade coloured paint, choices also include Blade Silver, Pearl Black or Arctic White coloured paints.
The upholstery has been trimmed in Graphite half leather with red stitching and alloy pedals compliment the overall look.
Sound & Style clearly describes what Nissan are aiming for, and the sound system shouldn’t disappoint. Alongside the standard six disc CD auto-changer, Nissan have teamed up with audio specialists Bose to provide a sound system specifically designed to suit the cabin of the QASHQAI.
Bose designed and created a range of small, slim speakers utilising lightweight and compact neodymium iron boron magnets which are roughly 10 times the power of similar sized ferrite magnets speakers without surrendering any acoustic performance.
As well as providing six speakers, Bose also include the Richbass woofer, which due to its design, is able to recreate the low frequencies expected of a much larger and heavier speaker.
The final touch is a multi-channel digital amplifier, offering custom equalisation and digital signal processing. What that means is the ability to deliver a rich detailed sound without distortion.
QASHQAI Sound & Style is available now with either 2.0-litre petrol or diesel power, six-speed manual transmission and two-wheel drive, priced at £19,199 and £20,599 OTR respectively.Published 5 November 2008
