The 2021 Nissan Qashqai - Now in Ottawa

The 2021 Nissan Qashqai is sandwiched in Nissan's SUV lineup between the small and sprightly Kicks and the best-selling Rogue. While it could be easily overlooked, its small crossover body holds many standard features for drivers in Orleans and across Ottawa.

What to Expect

Drivers that want practicality, connection, and comfort while on the road in Ottawa have to look no further than the 2021 Nissan Qashqai. Ready for road trips or to navigate through crowded city streets, the Qashqai leans into any adventure.

New Features

The 2021 Nissan Qashqai is the third generation of a best-selling family SUV. Receiving a ground-up overhaul, the new Qashqai offers new styling, better practicality, upgraded safety and infotainment technologies, and more. The Qashqai is even receiving a hybrid overhaul with an all-new hybrid powertrain to be replaced on later 2021 versions of the Qashqai.


Nissan built the Qashqai with a commanding stance, expressive lines, and unique wheel designs that mimic the urban environment in which the vehicle excels. Drivers in Orleans and throughout Ottawa can look to the 2021 Nissan Qashqai as an example of a one-of-a-kind vehicle. While the exterior footprint is small enough to slip in and out of traffic easily, the interior is surprisingly spacious with flexible seating options up to five adults. The configurable cargo space behind the front seats tops out at 1,727 litres (648 litres behind the second row of seats). The overall interior design is relaxed refinement, featuring premium materials from the dashboard to the seat coverings.


The 2021 Nissan Qashqai offers a unique driving experience for drivers in Ottawa. For those that want safety, space, fuel efficiency, and fun, the Qashqai is ready to deliver. The SUV is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and is available with either a manual transmission or Xtronic automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT). Both transmission options provide the Qashqai with a dynamic driving experience with a smooth ride and smoother control.


All models of the 2021 Nissan Qashqai feature the NissanConnect infotainment system with a touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and Bluetooth.


With the Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite of driver-assistance technologies present on all Qashqai models, drivers are surrounded by confidence on all sides. Standard on the 2021 Qashqai are intelligent emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear intelligent emergency braking, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot warning, lane departure warning, and high beam assist.
