It is about 10 inches shorter, and of course, only seats 5 (The Rogue does have a 3rd row option)
But, after seeing a few in Europe, it does look sportier than the Rogue.
At first they almost look the same. But they are not.
So if you don't really need more than 5 seats, the Qashai will do just fine.
Which could be a problem for the Rogue.
The same way the Rogue is a problem for the larger (but not that much better) Pathfinder.
The top engine in Europe is a new 1.6 Liter Turbo with 150HP. With CVT.
Probably what we'll get over here.
(A smaller 1.2 Liter with 115HP and 6 speed manual is also available there on the base model)
