Yes, but the Finnish brochure specifically notes it's not included in Finland. All the brochures have slight spec differences. I see no reason why it wouldn't be enabled in Belgium.

I emailed my dealer about it, and some other questions I had.

He said "AA was officially released in -19 autumn in Finland. For some reason it's not available in play store, you can download it from elsewhere but installing isn't so straight forward. In other words car has that feature, but rest if up to google".

So I believe Finns will also have AA in the J12 QQ. That wireless device should work fine with future AA updates and they are saying that device support is offered to at least 2025, most likely even longer than that. So I'm not that worried about the future of it.

Edit:

Dealer also said that test drive car should be here in a month, early June. And if you order tekna+ now, delivery estimate is end of august, beginning of september.

That is really good news !!!
" In other words car has that feature, but rest if up to google"."
I beg to differ, that's what I was told too, but this seems only (a small) part of the story.
Some (!) BMW car models, as well as some Skoda cars etc ... have seamless Android Auto Wireless by default.
AFAIK it has in fact little to do with Google / Android Auto itself.
The car electronics / infotainment systems should have proper Android Auto support : hardware, soft/firm-ware .. at least that is what I understood from reading quite a lot of posts in several other car forums.
Android (and) support is a complicated mess compared too Apple Carplay that is, according to what I read, far better integrated (in iOS).

Finally : UK English QQ J12 test drive - review ...

IMHO the verdict is a mixed bag : few reviewers are excited about CVT transmission.

Predictable review

They mention 19" wheels but the photos are 20" ones.

Finally ... incredibly positive review and test drive of the new J12 QQ models :



Multiple trims are test-driven, Q-tronix CVT as well as MT6 transmissions.

Unfortunately in Dutch, but very professional presentation.
It completely contradicts a.o. the AutoExpress UK preview that seemed much less favourable to me !

Yeah, sadly I don't know any Dutch, so I don't understand him at all. Good to see some driving clips though.

Anyway. I got a nice compensation offer for my old 2008 QQ from my dealer. I have looked around online and usually 2008 models with the km I have sell around the figure I got compensation for. I thought I would get like half of the amount they offered.

Also got an offer on the new QQ with following config:
NISSAN Qashqai MHEV 158 Xtronic 4WD Tekna+ (TDZNLJWJ12UGA-B---)
Magnetic blue
Michelin X-Ice North ALU 17" with pressure sensors (proper studded winter tires)
Motor heater, socket for inside the car and heater
Fixed towbar
Rubber floor mats (dealer gave these after they had made me the offer, so they are free)
Also got a nice discount from the additional equipment.

@ilkka, you can indeed understand the Dutch language if you enable the subtitles (text icon below the Youtube video screen) and then select either automatic (language translation) or if the video language allows for it you can also select
any other subtitled-language you want.
That way I have enjoyed Youtube videos in the most, to me, exotic languages and translated to English or other.

Nice that you got a great offer on the J12 QQ Tekna+ !
BTW I got close to nothing for my 2008 (non-Nissan) car from the dealer (but, IMHO, got a great discount).

FWIW ... yet 2 new test-drive (re-)views from/with the new J12 QQ (in Dutch, seems cars are out there already).

Mostly positive, surely again a true QQ (according to these drivers) :

Seem like these cars are all from a demo series - check out the registration
