- 2020 Nissan Qashqai Midnight Edition announced
- Blacked-out and colour-matched exterior highlights
- Black Alcantara appointed interior
- Priced from $35,900 plus on-road costs
A new special edition of the Nissan Qashqai joins the range, gaining a visual boost and some extra equipment to help it stand out from the pack.
The Qashqai Midnight Edition joins the ranks of previous special editions like the N-Sport and N-Tec, in what’s fast becoming an annual tradition for Nissan.
The Qashqai Midnight’s claim to fame is its night-themed styling overhaul which sees the exterior receive a gloss black version of the Qashqai’s V-motion grille, gloss-black 19-inch alloy wheels, plus gloss black finishes for the front and rear bumper blades, bodyside moldings, roof rail and mirror caps.
Inside there are more midnight touches with a black roof headlining and a combination of gloss and brushed black interior inserts to complement the leather and Alcantara seat trim.
Other Midnight additions include illuminated sill plates in the front doors, auto-folding mirrors, darkened head and tail light internals, and LED headlights with adaptive front lighting. colour-matched body work takes the place of the regular Qashqai’s black plastics, on the sills bumpers and wheel arches, plus there’s a Midnight badge at the rear.
Priced from $35,900 plus on-road costs, the Midnight edition slots in between the $34,300 ST-L and flagship TI grade from $38,790.
Although the regular ST-L features heated front seats with power adjustment, those features are missing from the Midnight Edition.
Other carry-over Qashqai ST-L features include Nissan’s intelligent mobility safety quite including lane departure warning, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, intelligent emergency braking (AEB), and around view monitor 360-degree camera with moving object detection.
A 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system includes Apple CarPlay and Android auto compatibility, integrated satellite navigation, digital radio, Bluetooth and voice recognition.
Mechanically the Qashqai Midnight shares the same 106kw/200Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine and X-tronic CVT automatic driving the front wheels as the rest of the Qashqai range.
The Qashqai Midnight Edition will be available from mid November.
