The new Nissan Qashqai received a full five star rating from the independent safety organisation, Euro NCAP.
During front impact tests, the passenger compartment of the Qashqai remained stable, with dummy readings indicating good protection for the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. The driver dummy scored maximum points, with good protection of all body regions. Maximum points were also scored in the side barrier test with all parts of the body well protected.
The Qashqai also received maximum points for infant protection.
It will arrive in SA around the middle of 2014.
