  • Pulsar SSS Sedan confirmed for Australia
  • Qashqai SUV in Australia next year

Nissan has confirmed its overseas Qashqai badge (pronounced "cash-kai") will come to Australia in 2014, following the second-quarter launch of the new Pulsar SSS sedan.

The current Qashqai is sold in Australia as the Dualis, and recent spy photos show that a replacement for both models is nearing its global premiere.

The carmaker has not confirmed full plans for the new Qashqai, although it is likely the badge will replace the Dualis name in Australia, rather than joining it is as a new variant.

The new Qashqai is expected to be unveiled in the coming months - possibly as soon as next month's LA Auto Show - when it is expected to reveal styling largely in-line with the new X-Trail SUV.

Recent reports also suggest the Qashqai will be powered by a 1.2 litre DiG-T turbocharged petrol engine, offering 85kW and 180Nm of torque.

The new small turbo petrol is understood to be a replacement for the non-turbo 1.6 petrol engine offered with the Qashqai in Europe.

The Qashqai is also expected to launch internationally with a pair of 1.6 litre diesel engines borrowed from partner Renault, offering 80kW and 95kW.

It is unclear which of these engines will come to Australia, although we could see a more powerful 2.0 litre unit, just as the current Dualis offers locally.


Pulsar SSS Sedan

Nissan also also confirmed expectations of a four-door sibling for its new Pulsar SSS hatch, with the sedan version now scheduled for a second-quarter 2014 Australian launch.

Like the hatch, we can likely expect the SSS sedan to feature the a 140kW/240Nm 1.6 turbo engine, along with larger wheels and a handful of sporting tweaks.

“Nissan is set for a big end to 2013 with the launch of JUKE, Pathfinder and Altima and we look forward to taking that momentum into 2014 with these exciting new model launches,” said Peter Jones, Managing Director and CEO, Nissan Motor Company Australia.
