REMEMBER the Juke owner we mentioned on Insider who was involved in an accident earlier this year?
The driver was grateful that car had been built with such effective safety features and that they escaped with only minor injuries.
Well, today we bring you a similar tale – this time involving a Qashqai. Driver James Crocker got in touch with Nissan with the following message.
‘Today I had a high-speed (100kmh) collision with another vehicle with my wife and three-year-old daughter in the car. Both air bags were deployed and all of us were able to walk away from the car with only minor injuries.
‘I would like to say thank you from my heart for making such a safe cabin in this car. We were able to exit quickly through the doors which functioned perfectly even though the front end of the car was totally destroyed and the impact had bent the chasis and caused the boot to come open.
‘My heartfelt thanks that we are still walking and healthy.’
Safety is one of Qashqai’s key attributes. Active safety equipment includes anti-lock brakes with brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution while the availability of electronic stability programme and all-mode 4×4 provide the ultimate traction no matter how tricky the conditions.
