Aside from the facelift, there's another interesting addition coming to the Qashqai. Nissan says that within this fiscal year, the company's semi-autonomous ProPILOT technology will be available. For those that don't know or may have forgotten, ProPILOT is a system that allows a car to steer, brake, and accelerate in a single lane. The idea being that it helps with stop-and-go traffic on congested highways. The feature is already available on the Nissan Serena minivan in Japan, and it will eventually come to the Nissan Leaf.
This is also interesting considering that the Qashqai and Rogue Sport are effectively the same cars. This could mean that the feature will show up on American Rogue Sports in the near future. We've reached out to Nissan for details and will update when we hear back.
