Tuned versions of Nissan's mass market Qashqai crossover and X-Trail SUV have been on display at Geneva
24 February 2016

Two new concepts based on the Nissan Qashqai and X-Trail have been revealed at the Geneva motor show.

The Qashqai Premium Concept features a matt black exterior, with golden copper-coloured detailing on the wheel arches, window line, headlamp clusters and roof rails. Carbonfibre is used on the lower sections and it has new machined 20in alloy wheels.

Inside the Qashqai Premium Concept is soft white Nappa leather seating with a quilted finish. Golden copper weave and carbonfibre is also used throughout, with black satin chrome and gloss black used on the steering wheel and gearlever.

In contrast, the X-Trail Premium Concept model gets a matt white exterior finish. The front skid plate is finished in golden copper, while the bonnet and roof get matt black carbonfibre. The body cladding is painted gloss black, and 20in alloy wheels are fitted.

On the inside, tan leather and Ultrasuede seats with a ‘cloud effect’ design can be seen, with black carbonfibre and matt chrome black finishings to the dashboard and door trim.

There are no plans for the models to make production.

Our Verdict

Nissan Qashqai

Nissan's second crossover album goes platinum, but can a light refresh to the Qashqai and some added extras help it hold off the advances from the Seat Ateca and Skoda Kodiaq
