2022 Nissan Qashqai vs Kia Sportage

2022 Nissan Qashqai vs Kia Sportage

With its SUV lineup, Kia is on a roll. Stonic light SUVs are in high demand, Seltos small SUVs are a huge hit, and the large seven-seat Sorento is getting much attention in reviews. 

 

On the other hand, the new Nissan Z sports car or the Navara Ute will likely not be Nissan's most important model in 2022, but its small SUV, the 2022 Nissan Qashqai. It will compete in one of the most competitive segments in Ottawa.

 

Here is a comparison between the Kia Sportage and the 2022 Nissan Qashqai based on the factors below:

 

Design

With Kia's new design philosophy, "Opposites United," the 2022 Sportage is undeniably cutting edge, almost revolutionary, making many of its competitors look out of place. 

 

The new version of Nissan Qashqai fits the bill perfectly. While retaining that Nissan DNA, the modern design is sleek, powerful, and overall cool. It's the new 'V-motion' grille at the front that first catches your eye, along with a boomerang-shaped headlight and LED daytime running light.

 

Fuel Consumption

Fuel Consumption

 

According to Kia, a combination cycle test of the Sportage diesel yields 6.3 litres per 100 kilometres. It emits 163g of CO2 per kilometre and has a 54-litre fuel tank.

 

The EPA reports put Nissan Qashqai's fuel consumption at 6.4 litres per 100 kilometres.

 

Safety

Standard features on all Sportage models come with automatic emergency braking (AEB) that includes:

 

  • Pedestrian detection, 
  • Bicycle and intersection detection, 
  • Blindspot detection 
  • Rear cross-traffic alerts, many others.

 

With a score of 91%, Nissan Qashqai performed well in the adult and child occupant protection tests, but it is exceptional in the safety assist category. As for the safety assist score, Qashqai's 95% is the highest ever recorded by Euro NCAP, equaling the Subaru.

 

Nissan in Ottawa has incorporated standard safety features into its models.
