Fuel & Gearbox
The more powerful of the two petrol engines on offer in the new Qashqai, the 1.6 DiG-T is a four cylinder turbocharged engine that gives a strong 163 horsepower bringing the 0-60 time down to 8.9 seconds and top speed is raised to 124 mph. With the negative publicity making consumers switch across to petrol from diesel, this engine has seen a strong upsurge in sales recently as you'd expect. It's a great engine for the car developing more than enough power for motorway work yet is still quiet and refined around town, with average official fuel economy figures hitting 48 mpg. Unless you're doing very high mileages and need a diesel then this is the best all round engine in the range and we recommend it.
