To celebrate the launch of the new Nissan Qashqai, the company has created a special edition – the Qashqai Premier Limited Edition – which will initially be reserved for existing Nissan customers.

Only 2,007 units will be produced, referencing the year the original Qashqai model was introduced.

Of those, only 290 will be destined for the UK, each with its own numbered badge.

The Premier Limited Edition is based on the top-of-the-range Tekna model, but with the addition of special leather and Alcantara trim, black roof liner, black carpets, chrome door sills and tailgate finisher, and logo’d kick plates.

It’s available only with black paintwork, while power comes from a 1.6-litre dCi diesel engine coupled with Nissan’s All-Mode 4×4 system.

Nissan hasn’t publicly revealed pricing; the Premier Limited Edition is available only to existing Nissan customers until 31st December 2013.
