The new Nissan Qashqai ready to run the Acea Run Rome The Marathon
Rome, 15 Sept. (askanews) – The new Nissan Qashqai is preparing to run the Acea Run Rome The Marathon on Sunday 19 September.
In the name of environmental sustainability, the new Qashqai, Official Electrified Car of the running event in Rome, will open the route from the Imperial Forums and will be the official timekeeper of the competition, crossing the main places of historical and cultural interest of the Eternal City. The race direction and the judges will also follow the Marathon aboard the Qashqai, the only car to be able to cover the 42.195km together with the participants.
The third generation of Qashqai, with a dynamic and elegant design, is born on the new more rigid and lighter CMF-C platform, which together with new more efficient suspension and shock absorbers and the new more precise and direct steering increase comfort, driving pleasure and the dynamic behavior of the car.
The new Qashqai has a 100% electrified range, starting with the mild hybrid, 140 and 158 HP, already available in dealerships. It is a hybrid technology characterized by a bright and efficient engine, low fuel consumption and reduced emissions. The mild hybrid can be combined with the 6-speed manual gearbox, characterized by precise shifts and optimized to offer rapid response in low gears and excellent levels of silence and efficiency in high gears. You can choose the new Xtronic automatic transmission, designed to guarantee the best response in all driving conditions.
Rich technological equipment for comfort, safety and connectivity. New high-definition 12.3 “multifunction digital instrument cluster and new 10.8” Head-Up display, the largest in the segment, providing route information or driving assistance in the driver’s field of vision. Also new is the infotainment system, with 9 ″ HD digital touch screen and new graphic interface. ProPILOT driving assistance system, now with Navi-link, adjusts acceleration, braking, stop and restart in the single lane, reads road signs via a camera and automatically adapts the speed of the car, acquires data from the navigator and adjusts the speed in the curves or on the ramps of the motorway exits.
Furthermore, thanks to the NissanConnect Services app, it is possible to remotely manage the horn, the lights, the opening / closing of the doors via smartphone or Alexa and Google devices. The system also provides the option of notification in case of exceeding a preset speed, time or zone threshold.
By virtue of its compact size, electrified propulsion and on-board technologies, the new Qashqai is the ideal vehicle to move in an agile and safe way on the roads of the Acea Run Rome The Marathon, one of the largest marathons in Italy.
