Nissan calls Qashqai 'most parkable car'

Nissan calls Qashqai 'most parkable car'

Nissan were particularly proud of their release of the Qashqai, claiming that the new model will "redefine" the crossover market in the build-up to the vehicles full unveiling.

Most recently Nissan has been praising how the Qashqai can help drivers park with ease. The vehicle combines a number of unique technologies to help drivers squeeze into some of the most difficult of parking spaces.

This includes the Nissan Park Assist system, particularly useful for helping when trying to parallel park. 

An 'Around View Monitor' working alongside the Park Assist automatically measures the size of an available parking space. Then the system steers the car into place, with the driver only taking control of the forwards and backwards motion. 

Nissan has said this technology will not only take the stress out of parking, it will prevent damage occurring on the wheels, tyres and bodywork. 

The car is also able to provide a 'helicopter view', which is most helpful when trying to tackle bay parking. Detecting the white lines of the empty bay, the car then automatically parks inside these boundaries. 

This view is again achieved by the Around View Monitor, which works using cameras attached to the front, back and both sides of the car. 

Furthermore, the cameras are also able to tell if something is in the way. The technology helps to alert the driver of obstacles that are in critical areas around the car. 

The cameras are kept clean through a 'wash and blow dry' feature, which uses a high pressure water jet and compressed air nozzle to ensure each lens remains clear.
