Mitsubishi will come back hard on other car-makers with a Nissan Qashqai rival in 2017. The company is expecting to capitalize on its sales growth by offering a full range of SUVs on the booming market. This will surely bring the company on the top especially with a car like Nissan Qashqai Rival.

According to Auto Car, the car is yet to be named but it is expected to be revealed at the Geneva motor show in March. The Nissan Qashqai river will be larger than the ASX and it will sit below the Outland in Mitsubishi’s range. It will stand on its coupe-like style with an expensive design, unlike the past where the firm has erred towards traditional body designs boxy designs. It takes a long time for the changes to come through but Mitsubishi’s team is working tirelessly to improve and provide both rugged and stylish car. The concept has a two-wheel drive and an unspecified plug-in hybrid powertrain which reduced 160bhp and emitted 40g/km of CO2.

Today in Britain a small SUV are the most popular new cars on sale, but the market has still a lot to offer according to The Week’s report. 60.000 Nissan Qashqai's were sold in the United Kingdom just last year. These family cars are the most popular and the best selling crossover money can buy. The competition on the market is huge, but Nissan continues to lead the way with its design which was created with a handling balance catered more towards comfort. Even though this car won the market with its design, the company didn’t stop there, the interior is a whole other story. It has a smarter, tidier and a well-made cabin that makes use of decent materials. The space in the cabin is great, people have plenty of headroom and it offers a 430-litres luggage capacity. Nissan Qashqai has five seats but the Qashqai +2 model will feature two more seats so the bigger families could enjoy their road trip together.

The cheapest model is £18,545 and the most expensive will cost the owner around £26,890. But, Nissan Qashqai is offering something else, according to Read Write. With $1.800 plus, the owner could get a self-driving option in this car. The company will branch this option in Europe with the Qashqai before bringing it to other models.
