The Nissan Qashqai crossover is now on sale with ProPILOT, the brand’s most advanced driver assistance technology.
ProPILOT enhances the driver’s control by assisting with steering, acceleration and braking. It works in a single lane on highways and is optimised for low-speed congestion and high-speed cruising. By removing some of the more mundane elements of motoring, it reduces fatigue and stress and improves safety, enhancing overall control and confidence for drivers.
Simple to use, ProPILOT is activated by the driver using the ProPILOT button on the right spoke of the Qashqai’s steering wheel. Pressing the SET button maintains current speed and a safe distance from the vehicle in front.
The Qashqai will slow to a complete stop if traffic conditions require. It moves off automatically if the car is stationary for approximately three seconds or less. If it’s longer, drivers should press the RESUME button or lightly tap the accelerator.
ProPILOT’s status is always displayed in the combimeter between the two dials in the instrument cluster. Visual warnings are supported by audible alerts.
The technology works based on traffic and road conditions data supplied by a camera mounted in the Qashqai’s windscreen and a radar behind the Nissan badge in the front grille.
ProPILOT is available as a add on option on both Tekna and Tekna+ models powered by the dCi 130 diesel engine with Xtronic (Automatic) transmission. For dCi 130 Manual transmission models, a Drive Assist Pack is available. Featuring Intelligent Lane Intervention, Intelligent Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist, the Drive Assist Pack is capable of most ProPILOT features except the ability to come to a complete stop and then resume driving in traffic.
The Qashqai is the most successful model in Europe in Nissan’s 83-year history, with approximately 2.3 million sold since the original version was launched in 2007, Find your ProPILOT Qashqai here.
