Nissan is a market leader in South Africa, but internationally the brand had slumped in the last few years. But following the upheavals in top management and tensions in the alliance they share with Renault and Mitsubishi, Nissan has finally upped its game again with some exciting new SUVs.
Every year, May the 4th is celebrated in our little corner of the galaxy as Star Wars-day. To celebrate the premier of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Nissan launched an ad featuring the futuristic ProPILOT capabilities of the Nissan X-Trail. In this ad the role of Chewbacca will be played by a Yorkshire Terrier…
Nissan has revealed the new look of the facelifted 2018 X-Trail, and the good news is that it will be available in South Africa just in time for those end of year bonuses. Based on the European X-Trail, and not the US-spec Nissan Rogue version, it is expected to come with a number of innovative new safety and comfort features. However, final specs and pricing have not been finalised and will only be announced closer to the as yet unconfirmed launch date later this year.
So, are you ready to take a look at the new Nissan X-Trail? Then hit play on the video below and see for yourself why the latest version of this popular vehicle is going to revolutionise SUV safety in South Africa.
For most dog owners their canine companions are like their children, part of the family. So, based on this sentiment, and a study carried out by the Kennel Club in the United Kingdom (one of the most renowned and respected organisations concerned with the welfare of dogs) Nissan have developed a groundbreaking and truly innovative concept car specifically for dog owners by modifying the X-Trail to create the Nissan X-Trail 4Dogs.
If you thought the previous model X-trail was a masterpiece, you’re going to flip when you see the new portrait Nissan is painting. As in all things, practice makes perfect, and Nissan elevated their art to a new level when they brushed the X-trail’s third generation on a larger canvas, upscaling it from a small- to a medium sized SUV. We are now looking forward to the big reveal of the fourth rendition of this favoured model.
If you’ve got a hankering for an SUV, you’ve probably toyed with some technical comparisons, dabbled in some review research and engaged in not-so-idle conversations with other SUV owners. None of which served to get you off the fence. Probably all you managed was to raise the fence higher off the ground. Indecision is like indigestion for the mind. Don’t you wish you could just put it to a vote? We have:
Are you looking for adventure? Do you want to live life on the edge, but can’t find a way to get there? Well, look no further! The all new Nissan X-Trail is just what you have been looking for.

Dominating the current round of Euro NCAP crash tests was the all-new Nissan X-Trail. Awarded five out of five stars, the Nissan X-Trail earned top marks in the sports utility class. The off-road Nissan X-Trail is both a safe family car and well-suited for an active outdoor lifestyle.

The Nissan X-Trail’s safety features includes: dual front SRS and dual side airbags, head-protecting curtain airbags, ABS brakes for a safer drive, vehicle dynamic control, blind spot and lane departure warning, moving object detection and electronic brake distribution. Seat belts have been specifically designed to protect occupants in case of a frontal impact with a standard seatbelt reminder.
