The Nissan Qashqai (/ˈkæʃkaɪ/) is a compact crossover SUV produced by the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan since 2006. The first generation of the vehicle was sold under the name Nissan Dualis (Japanese: 日産・デュアリス, Nissan Dyuarisu) in Japan and Australia, and Qashqai in other markets. The second (and current) generation, which was released in 2014, is not sold in Japan and is badged as the Qashqai everywhere it is sold, except in the United States, where it is rebadged as the Nissan Rogue Sport.
The original Qashqai replaced the off-road-capable body-on-frame Mistral/Terrano II as Nissan’s SUV offering, and its P32L automobile platform will be also used by other forthcoming Nissan crossover SUVs. Nissan named the vehicle after the Qashqai people, who live in mountainous Central and Southwestern Iran.
