Nissan Qashqai Black Edition SV Is an Invite to the Dark Side
What's the Japanese word for all black everything?
After gently applying the Dark Knight treatment on the Note, Nissan repeats the action on their Qashqai, which adds the Black Edition Special Version nameplate.
This particular version is underpinned by the top-shelf Tekna grade available for the standard Qashqai and comes only with the dCi 110 turbodiesel unit, front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual. Nissan says it chose the Tekna trim level as a starting point for the Qashqai Black Edition because "Tekna versions represent around one in three Qashqai purchases."
Speaking of which, let's cut to the chase and see what the Qashqai Black Edition has to offer. First on the exterior upgrades list is a set of 19-inch black Ibiscus alloy wheels and pearl black metallic paint.
Then there's also a lot coming from the safety assist area. Nissan Qashqai Black Edition gets intelligent park assist, LED headlights with high beam assist, a 360-degree view camera, lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, blind spot warning and moving object detection.
All the above features come as standard, just like the all-black leather upholstery and the NissanConnect infotainment system wrapped around the seven-inch tactile display.
Price-wise, UK customers can have the Nissan Qashqai Black Edition for £27,310, which is £450 more than they would usually pay for a Qashqai in Tekna guise.
