Did You Know The 2019 Nissan Qashqai Is Available With A Manual Transmission?



There's something deeply satisfying about easing off the clutch pedal with your left foot as you apply throttle to accelerate forward. 

In goes the clutch pedal. Your right hand instinctively moves the gear lever from first down to second. The clutch is released as the throttle is depressed. And then repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.


Despite the fun factor, manual transmissions are becoming increasingly rare. Many upcoming first-time car buyers don't have the benefit of learning in a manual-shift car owned by their parents, their friends usually don't drive a manual, and automatic-transmission vehicles are much more common the pre-owned market.


Nevertheless, there remains a healthy flock of manual-shift aficionados; fans of the three-pedal layout. For those buyers, finding a small crossover with a manual isn't easy. There's no manual version of the Hyundai Kona, Ford EcoSport, Chevrolet Trax, Buick Encore, or Toyota C-HR. Jeep dropped its manual version of the Renegade, too. 



But you can still get a Nissan Qashqai with a manual transmission. The clutch is light, the shifts are crisp, the tactile feedback is rewarding, and the money saved is gratifying. Compared with the Qashqai's automatic, the most affordable 6-speed Qashqai is $5,300 less costly than the next rung up the ladder.

$5,300. Fifty-three hundred.


With heated seats, a reaview monitor, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto on a 7-inch screen, air conditioning, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, intelligent emergency braking, a 648-litre cargo area that can be expanded to 1,730 litres, and fuel economy of 8.1 L/100km on the highway, the 2019 Nissan Qashqai S is an outstanding value. And it's a bargain that's unique to Canada - south of the border, Americans aren't offered a manual-transmission Qashqai (which is known as the Rogue Sport in the U.S.).

The 2019 Nissan Qashqai is on sale now at Centennial Nissan of Charlottetown and Centennial Nissan of Summerside.
