A unique combination of rugged eye-catching design, comfort, on-board convenience, and a confident, effortless drive, the All-New X-Trail starts at £32,030.
In this new iteration, Nissan has drawn on the DNA of the previous three generations, including muscular design, flexible utility, and advanced all-wheel drive. The All-New X-Trail will be available in both five and seven seat configurations, offering a convenient option for days out with extended family or friends.
Both the exterior and interior of the All-New X-Trail reflect the spirit of the vehicle – versatile and adventurous. The exterior is highlighted by signature Nissan design elements such as the floating roof and V-motion grille. The frontal aspect is framed by striking headlights that appear moulded within the bodywork of the front bumper, with combined daytime running lights and indicators nestled along the shut-line of the hood.
From the side, muscular wheel arches at the front and rear give the X-Trail presence on the road, whilst at the base of the doors, an inset feature brings a sense of fluidity to the sheer surfaces of the doors.
The shape of the C-pillar is reminiscent of a dolphin fin, bringing tension to the rear where the wrap-around lights complete the rear three-quarter aspect.
From behind, taught horizontal lines sits just above and below where the number plate is mounted, while split rear lights ensure a wide aperture for the trunk. A silver panel curves under the rear bumper, reflecting X-Trail’s adventurous character.
Key aerodynamic features include “3D” tyre deflectors in the lower front fascia, an active grille shutter to control air flow into the engine compartment, special A-pillar shaping, underbody covers to manage air flow under the vehicle and a unique “air curtain” that precisely directs air flow from the front to the sides of the X-Trail.
Customers clearly appreciate choice, so the new X-Trail will be available in 10 body colours with five two-tone combinations, creating 15 variations to choose from.
The All-New X-Trail will be the second model in Nissan’s European range to be equipped with the brand’s innovative e‑POWER drive system. Exclusive to Nissan, e-POWER is a unique approach to electrification, offering the EV-drive feeling without the need to recharge.
First introduced in Japan on the Note in 2016, it went on to become the best-selling car, with customers loving its combination of smooth, effortless performance and cable-free ownership.
The All-New X-Trail’s e-POWER system is comprised of a high-output battery and powertrain integrated with a variable compression ratio petrol engine, power generator, inverter and 150kW front electric motor. This unique powertrain means that power to the wheels comes only from an electric motor, which results in an instant, linear response to the accelerator.
The application For Europe it has a 1.5 litre Variable Compression Ratio turbo petrol engine, with a final system power output of 150kW (204PS).
While the e-POWER equipped version of the X-Trail will make up the majority of the demand for the vehicle, it will also be offered with the turbocharged 1.5-litre variable compression ratio powering the wheels in the traditional fashion. Generating 120kW (163PS) and 300Nm of torque, it will be offered only in two-wheel drive configuration, with power to the wheels being transmitted via the Xtronic stepped continuously variable transmission. In driving scenarios with relaxed driving and light acceleration, the engine switches to high compression ratio for optimised fuel efficiency, while in situations where more performance is needed, the compression ratio is adjusted to a low level.
The powertrain is also equipped with 12v Mild Hybrid technology. The system provides torque assist, extended idle stop, quick restart and coasting stop, with benefits to both fuel economy and CO2 output.
When decelerating, energy is recovered through regeneration and stored in the Lithium-ion battery. This charged energy is then used to run the car’s systems while the engine is stopped, while waiting at a red light for example. Additionally, a torque boost of around 6Nm can be generated under acceleration.
This means that the entire X-Trail line up is now electrified.
Extensive attention has been paid to the ergonomic and tactile quality of the switch gear and buttons to give them a high quality feel. Customer research has clearly shown customers’ preference for easy-to-use core functions, so the X-Trail has simple, intuitive heating/air-conditioning controls, as well as buttons that govern the central screen functions, such as audio and navigation.
The top level of the floating centre console layout features the e-shifter, the drive mode selector and twin cup holders, as well as the 15w wireless charge pad for smartphones. The charge pad actively charges your phone, whereas similar features just ensure the battery of your phone does not die. There is a combined elbow rest for front-seat occupants, which has a “butterfly” opening, to reveal a cavernous storage space for valuables. The side opening elements allow easy access to the storage area for rear-seat passengers, unlike a rear-hinged lid.
Underneath the upper tier of the floating console is storage for items such as a wallet or tablet. Making it easier to store smaller items and optimising space, because in a family car you can never have enough storage.
Deliveries of the All- New Nissan X-Trail are set to begin in October.
