The next-generation of the not-for-US-consumption Nissan Qashqai has been out doing some testing in southern Europe this week. And, if the dressed-in-trash-bags look is any indication, it's been doing a lot of roadwork so it can make weight for the big meet the weekend.

Nissan designers haven't been scared to take big design chances with recent new models, so expectations are that the Qashqai crossover will get a bold new visage for its generational changeover. What we see in these photos indicates a sleeker, slightly trimmer CUV however, with no trace of the bug-eyed look we captured recently on a testing Titan.

In the rest of the world, it's a good bet that the Qashqai will be powered by engines ranging from a 1.2-liter turbo up to a 1.6-liter forced-induction unit; that larger one good for something like 215 horsepower. Diesel powerplants will be in the mix, too, for the compact CUV, and word is that Nismo might get its hands on this Rogue cousin for the first time ever.

      The current one looks great, probably th best looking cuv. There is no ned to mess with the look, only the powertrain.

      Once again, where is my Silvia? Qashqai, Rogue, Juke, Murano, Murano CONVERTIBLE, FX, JX, Nissan has a plethora of hideous SUVs and CUVs but no cheap sports car entry? It's embarassing.

      Headlights remind me of the new rav4 taillights in the way they lead into the body

      What a difference from the camo that Rolls Royce uses. Nissan looks like they use nothing but duct tape and RR's camo cover looks like it's custom tailored on Savile Row.
