The 2007 Nissan Qashqai is based on the concept of the same name that debuted at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show. Nissan thought it would fan the flames of expectation before the production version's European debut at the 2006 Paris Motor Show in late September with a teaser video. Too bad some fast snapping Parisians caught the Qashqai completely uncovered already. The ute appears smaller than a RAV-4 (no third row) but with the same basic shape and increasingly common kicked up window outline ahead of the D-pillar. We'll have much more information on the Euro-only Qashqai when we meet it in person at the Paris show in a few weeks.
