The 2014 Qashqai is currently under tests and will launch in early 2014.

In showrooms, Qashqais would be labeled Visia, Visia+ Safety Pack, Acenta, Acenta Premium and Tekna. The 1.6L diesel engined Acenta Premium and Tekna variants would come with optional 4WD.

Our reader Harshavardhana from the UK, spotted a test prototype of the new Qashqai in August. As the model was camouflaged, we'll have to take Autocar's word when the say the replacement is more "avant-garde" in design.

Nissan has reportedly also promised a more sporting driving experience on the new comer. Note that Nissan has sold over 1.3 million Qashqais in Europe and is the leader in the C-Crossover segment.

At launch, there would be one petrol, and two diesel engine options.

What Nissan is going to change compared to today's product lineup, is that they have three cars in Europe at the moment - Qashqai, Qashqai+2 and X-Trail. In the future they will have just two models - Qashqai as a five seater car, and the X-Trail with seats for five and seven people. A debut at the Geneva Motor Show next year looks likely for the next generation car.

Prices for the new Qashqai is expected to start below £30,000 (29.66 lakh rupees).
