Nissan has unveiled a new special edition version of it's best-selling Qashqai crossover called the N-Motion.

The N-Motion is on sale now and comes with new design elements both inside and out that make it even better value than before, or so that's with Nissan is telling us. It's based on the mid-range N-Connecta trim level and is priced from £25,345.

External enhancements include silver bumper plates front and rear, matching door mirror caps and roof rails, LED headlamps with adaptive front lighting, and unique 19-inch 'Ibiscus' alloys.

Inside the car has received  a premium makeover with redesigned front seats that now feature exclusive burnt orange inserts on the bolsters with matching stitching across the whole seat, knee pads, on either side of the gear selector surround, as well as on the front door trim and top of the storage area between the front seats as well as the doormats. In the boot there's an added layer of protection in the form of a full-sized liner
