The new Nissan X-Trail, the worlds best selling SUV gets even better

The Nissan X-Trail is the world’s best-selling SUV and, from August, will be available with a range of upgrades which further enhance its quality and refinement, including a redesign of the exterior, a higher-quality interior, new features, more practicality and innovative new technologies, including ProPILOT autonomous drive technology.

Philippe Saillard, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Nissan Europe, commented: "Demand for crossovers is growing all the time, and for the Nissan X-Trail to be the number one for global sales is a huge honour. With these enhancements, the new X-Trail is delivering more of what our customers want. The Nissan X-Trail is the perfect car for family adventures."

The new Nissan X-Trail - Exterior

The existing X-Trail is Nissan's number one seller worldwide, aided and abetted by the launch of a new 2.0-litre 177PS diesel engine version of the five or seven-seat crossover earlier this year, aimed at adventure-loving families.

The new Nissan X-Trail front viewAnd although the Nissan X-Trail has always been known for its sculpted and muscular styling, the update has redesigned the front end and kept the existing chiselled lines, high wheel arches and elegant curves on the bonnet. 

Right at the heart of the front design is Nissan’s latest and wider ‘V-motion’ grille, echoed in the design of the bumper beneath. On either side of the grille are new headlamp clusters, with halogen bulbs on Visia, Acenta and N-Connecta grades and full LEDs on Tekna. Tekna models also feature Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS) with the LED lamps, offering greater illumination on cornering.

Front fog lamps are standard from Acenta grade, and all models feature front parking sensors,  set flush in the bumper in keeping with the car’s higher-quality finish and Nissan’s attention to detail.

The new Nissan X-Trail rear viewAt the rear of the new X-Trail, there is a redesigned bumper, full LED lights and rear parking sensors.

But the biggest change to the new X-Trail comes with addition of a chrome side moulding across the base of the two doors as standard on Tekna grade and optional below.. A new range of 17"(on Visia and Acenta) and 18"(on N-Connecta and Tekna) alloy wheels are now fitted as standard, with 19" wheels available as optional on Tekna grades.

Size-wise the new X-Trail is slightly longer bumper to bumper (by 50mm) but all other sizes remain the same, keeping the Cd rating of 0.32 to aerodynamic performance.

Six of the eight existing exterior colours have been carried over, with four vibrant new additional shades added – Monarch Orange, Palatial Ruby, Sapphire Blue and Picador Brown.

The new Nissan X-Trail - Interior

The new Nissan X-Trail rear seats interiorThe cabin of the new Nissan X-Trail has experienced a raft of upgrades including:

  • A striking new D-Shaped steering wheel with three spokes and four-way controllers for the combimeter display and cruise control
  • Integrated heating in the steering wheel as standard on Tekna grade
  • Leather upholstery with enhanced quilting as standard on Tekna grade 
  • Optional Heated seats for both front and second-row rear occupants (standard on Tekna grade)
  • New tan and black two-tone leather interior as an optional extra on Tekna
  • A new leather knee pad on both sides of the centre console 
  • A wider range of interior door trims to distinguish the different grades
  • Redesigned central armrest storage area 

The interior of the new X-Trail continues, as before, to offer exceptional space and comfort, including best-in-class knee room in the second row of seats, and clever storage solutions.

N-Connecta and Tekna grades of X-Trail have come with a hands-free electric tailgate as standard, operated by a simple kick motion under the rear bumper, allowing access to the larger boot (with Nissan’s innovative Flexible Luggage Board System) of 1,996 litres when all seven seats are folded.

The new Nissan X-Trail - Infotainment

An integral part of the re-design and upgrade of the Nissan X-Trail was customer demands, and when they asked for better audio, the new X-Trail Tekna grade is fitted with an all-new eight-speaker Bose system as standard (optional on other models) to create "a wider soundscape for a concert-like listening experience, with clarity of acoustics and minimal distortion at higher volumes."

That Customer feedback has also led to improvements in the X-Trail’s two other infotainment systems, with DAB digital radio added as standard for the first time and the NissanConnect touch-screen satellite navigation unit (standard from N-Connecta,) featuring a smart new user interface and a 'shark fin' roof antenna for improved reception.

The new Nissan X-Trail - Driving Technologies 

Nissan Intelligent Mobility is the name given to the advanced technologies which Nissan has introduced to make Nissan drivers feel more confident, excited and connected, while also enhancing road safety - with the new X-Trail maintaining the model's 2014 five-star Euro NCAP safety rating.

The new Nissan X-Trail side viewAnd an important part of this from 2018 is the introduction of ProPILOT as the first step towards autonomous driving, with ProPILOT controlling the steering, acceleration and braking in a single lane on roads and highways during heavy traffic congestion and high-speed cruising. ProPILOT will be activated via a button on the X-Trail’s steering wheel and uses three existing driver assistance features - Lane Keep Assist (LKA), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) and Traffic Jam Pilot (TJP) - to work, with information displayed in the combimeter between the instrument dials. Nissan will be providing more details of ProPILOT as its launch date approaches.

For now, at launch, the X-Trail features existing Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies such as:

  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition. 
  • Hill Start Assist (HSA) with Stand Still Assist (SSA)
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • Intelligent Driver Alertness
  • Intelligent Park Assist
  • Intelligent Around View Monitor
  • Lane Departure Warning

All of these combine to make a drive on the new Nissan X-Trail smooth and refined, with precise and stress-free steering and handling. 

And the range of three efficient engines, including the 2.0-litre 177PS diesel launched in 2016, means that customers have the choice of petrol or high and low-powered diesel, six-speed manual or CVT XTronic automatic transmissions, and two or four-wheel drive to meet every need that could be required.

  • 1.6 130PS diesel with 6MT transmission and 2-wheel-drive offers 57.6mpg on the combined cycle and emissions of 129g/km
