The facelifted Nissan Qashqai is on sale now priced from £19,295, with production already under way at the brand's Sunderland plant.
The latest model is £500 more expensive than the previous car, but it gains a host of additional technical features.
A new range-topping trim has been added, along with more aggressive front end design and, from spring 2018, new Propilot semi-autonomous technology.
When this is implemented, the Qashqai will be one of the first mainstream SUVs to offer semi-autonomous technology. It will be able to steer, accelerate and brake itself in a single lane on the motorway.
At a later stage, the system will be updated so that it can change lanes by itself. Nissan says by 2020 the Qashqai will be able to navigate through junctions.
"The experience we are delivering to customers inside the cars will be calming and quieter," Nissan's vice-president of product planning for Europe, Ponz Pandikuthira, told Autocar earlier this year. "It is the technology that makes the Qashqai a game-changing car."
