New model adds extra kit for minimal outlay, though Apple CarPlay and turbo petrol power remain off the cards for now.

Nissan Australia has added the Qashqai ST+ to the line-up, bringing the total number of variants to four.

Slotting between the base ST and mid-spec ST-L, the ST+ is priced from $30,790 plus on-road costs and is available exclusively with a CVT automatic – unlike the ST which features a six-speed manual as standard.

For the $1300 outlay over the equivalent ST CVT, the Qashqai ST+ gets a 7.0-inch touchscreen navigation system with traffic updates, DAB+ digital radio, 360-degree cameras with Moving Object Detection, power-folding heated side mirrors, and privacy glass.

That's on top of the ST's electric park brake with auto hold, 17-inch alloys, LED daytime-running lights, push-button start, cruise control, a leather-accented steering wheel, and bluetooth phone and audio streaming.

Rounding out the spec sheet are six airbags, front and rear parking sensors, two Isofix child seat mounts for the rear outboard seats, autonomous emergency braking with forward collision warning, and lane departure warning.

Power comes from the familiar 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine making 106kW and 200Nm, sent to the front wheels via the aforementioned CVT automatic.

The revised Qashqai range is on sale now.
