Nissan has updated the JSM Nissan Dualis for 2011 with tweaks we can probably expect for the 2011 Nissan Qashqai.
We get used to JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) cars getting updates rolled out ahead of the rest of the world, so the news that Nissan has released a set of updates for the Japanese version of the Nissan Qashqai – the Nissan Dualis – will be of interest to Qashqai lovers in the UK and Europe.
The updates aren’t exactly huge and amount to little more than a bit of tinkering. Exterior changes include some new alloys, a choice of new colours, chrome door handles and a tweaked grill. On the inside there’s a revised instrument cluster and a new 3.6″ info display showing trip and servicing information.
On the oily bits the only change seems to be a bit of ECU tweaking on the 2WD versions and some small changes on the CVT ‘box to eke a few more miles out of each gallon.
The revised Dualis is already on sale in Japan and as far as we can see there has been no change in price. There’s every chance some or all of these changes will filter out to the 2011 Nissan Qashqai.
