Nissan vision for
NISSAN has announced an addition to its Juke, Qashqai and X-Trail line-ups with the introduction of a Vision range to its popular crossover range.
N-Vision Special Versions promote Nissan's safety-shield technology and key features of the specials are systems such as Around View Monitor, NissanConnect, full colour rear view cameras and lane departure warning.
These features will come as standard in the Nissan Vision line-up which is positioned between the N-Connecta and range-topping Tekna grades.
The Around View Monitor - which uses cameras to display what is around the vehicle - is part of Nissan's move to ease modern-day driving by giving drivers confidence to manage manoeuvres more easily.
It is also an integral part of Nissan's ProPilot project, the brand's autonomous driving technology which will debut in Europe on the Qashqai crossover in 2017.
As far as the Juke N-Vision goes there will be a limited production and the model is based on the N-Connecta grade with the addition of a safety pack consisting of Around View Monitor, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, Moving Object Detection plus enhancement to the exterior and interior.
The 115bhp petrol version will cost £18,860 and the 110bhp comes in at £20,485.
The Qashqai N-Visioncomes with additional gear including panoramic glass roof, heated front seats, satin silver roof rails and Alcantara and graphite part leather trim and is priced from£23,790.
The X-Trail N-Vision comes with DIG-T 163 2WD petrol and six-speed manual transmission or the dCi 130 diesel with 2WD mated to a six-speed or Xtronic gearbox or a 4WD with six-speed manual. Prices remain the same as the outgoing n-tec grade, starting from £26,735.
Standard features include NissanConnect seven-in touch-screen navigation and entertainment system, Around View Monitor, 19-inch alloys and one-touch automatic opening power tailgate.
