Nissan has been working on the new X-Trail. It had been a good seller for Nissan in the country and the revamped version that was showcased in Frankfurt has a lot going for it. It’s built on the Nissan’s 4×4 heritage but the crossover style and efficiency appeals to a larger audience. Nissan has a capable family vehicle in the new X-Trail.
The new X-Trail brings wonderful exterior design which is not only modern and sporty but also very functional. The front is well designed and looks contemporary with the LED daytime running lamps. The headlights are LED for both high and low beams. The fog lamps on the bumper are chrome tipped while the grille has a ‘v shape’ thick strip of chrome. The rear has the ‘boomerang’ shape tail lights and a strip of chrome above the number plate on the boot door. The crossover has an aggressive design and Nissan seems to have gotten it right with the design update to the X-Trail.
Interiors on the new Nissan X-Trail have excellent features and a premium feel owing to the chrome, geometric metallic and piano black finishes. It brings full leather offering to the seats and is capable of seating 7 passengers inside its spacious cabin area. It has a 7 inch touchsreen with several new functionalities such as NissanConnect that offers a range of apps covering music, entertainment etc. It has a panoramic sun roof. It has multiple air bags for driver and passenger safety along with Nissan Safety Shield System.
The engine is expected to be a 2.0 liter unit and we expect to see a petrol and diesel engine variant in the country although the exact specifications and figures are yet to be revealed. It also brings an advanced four wheel drive system. Nissan calls it All Mode 4x4i. The system is capable of reacting to wheel spin and provides maximum traction as per driver requirement. The system also allows you to switch between two wheel drive mode, all wheel drive and auto mode.
Other driver assistive technologies include Active Ride Control and Active Engine Brake along with Active Trace Control. These features not only improve driving experience but also improve safety of the driver and passengers inside. Other features include Uphill Star Support and Active Hill Descent Control. These features will improve and aid driver control of the vehicle under varying terrain and road conditions.
