Nissan has revealed that the new 2014 Qashqai is just one step away from becoming a self-driving car.
Packed with technology, the Qashqai can already do an awful lot with little driver input, including park, read road signs and avoid collisions.
The only missing link is the computer software to make it drive itself – and Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn has said that this could be in place as early as 2020.
Among the new Qashqai’s launch features is a 360-degree parking camera that gives a bird’s eye view of the car and obstacles around it.
Intelligent Parking Assist automatically measures the space of a parallel parking space and steers the car into position, with the driver controlling the pedals.
Deliveries of the Qashqai will start in February next year.
