Five-star NCAP rating for new Qashqai

The Nissan Qashqai has achieved a five-star crash safety rating in the latest round of Euro NCAP tests.

During front impact tests, the passenger compartment of the Qashqai remained stable, with dummy readings indicating good protection for the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger.

The driver dummy scored maximum points, with good protection of all body regions. Maximum points were also scored in the side barrier test with all parts of the body well protected.

Designed and engineered to offer the best possible levels of protection for children, the new Qashqai also shone in the Child Occupant tests. Based on readings from the child dummies used in the dynamic tests, the Qashqai scored maximum points for its protection of an 18-month old infant.

Completing the report, the Qashqai's front bumper scored maximum points for the protection provided to pedestrians' legs.
