Nissan is adding a downright American feature--third-row seating--to its European crossover, the Qashqai, which will be revealed at the London motor show in July.

It's called the Qashqai+2 and goes on sale in European markets in October. Nissan has sold more than 170,000 of the original Qashqai.

There's no word on whether the enlarged crossover will make it to the United States. The Qashqai isn't sold here, though it shares Nissan's C chassis with the Rogue crossover.

The Qashqai+2 grows 8.3 inches longer to 176.5 inches, and the wheelbase grows by 5.3 inches to 107.8 inches. The third row of seats folds flat. It will be offered in three trim levels and assembled at Nissan's Sunderland plant in the United Kingdom.

The crossover will have two diesel and two gasoline engine choices, which will be mated to five speed-manuals or six-speed automatics. It also comes with a CVT option on the four-wheel-drive models.

Most notably, the Qashqai+2 comes with a panoramic glass roof, which is 5.5 inches longer than the one offered on the five-seat model.
