Nissan claims RV advantage for new Qashqai

<p> The new Nissan Qashqai will have &nbsp;stronger RV percentage than rivals according to the retail-focused three years/30,000 miles benchmark in the latest CAP data.<br /> <br /> The new &pound;20,840 Qashqai 1.5 dCi Acenta now has an RV of 50% or &pound;10,400 after three years, meaning that the new Qashqai is set to retain &pound;2,375 more over its first three years of life compared to its outgoing equivalent.</p> <p> However, initial figures can be misleading as they only reflect expected demand for the first examples of the car to hit the used market.</p> <p> Meanwhile, the new Qashqai 1.2 DIG-T Acenta petrol &ndash; priced&nbsp; from &pound;19,145 on the road &ndash; also&nbsp; enjoys a 10 percentage point RV increase on the outgoing model, giving a predicted value after three years of &pound;9,575, a &pound;2,800 increase on the outgoing 1.6 Qashqai Acenta.</p> <p> Michael Auliar, Nissan fleet sales director, said: &quot;The original Qashqai not only created the crossover segment but also performed very strongly in the used market, retaining its value far better than its closest rivals. CAP has raised the RV 10 percentage points, underlining the progress we have made and emphasising how strong the Qashqai is as fleet prospect over its whole life cycle.&quot;</p>

    A small note on Michael Auliar comment "The original Qashqai not only created the crossover segment" Not true to be fair. I think Honda started the crossover market with the old HR-V which was released to early (1999) and people still wanted the big 4x4's.
