The Nissan X-Trail is definitely among the most favourite crossovers in South Africa and it seems like the all-new model continues to impress motoring enthusiasts across the country. The brand new Nissan X-Trail comes in eight models, which includes four- and two-wheel drivetrains, as well as diesel and petrol versions.
Built at the Nissan Kyushu Plant in Japan, this third generation Nissan boasts a fresh design and that distinct “go anywhere attitude” that made previous models so popular. Nissan has also made a few significant changes to the exterior design, offering a more elegant, yet rugged body with its new model. “With the new Nissan X-Trail, we are embracing an even greater mix of crossover consumers,” said Graeme Birch, General Manager of Marketing Communications at Nissan South Africa.
Features and Specifications
The new Nissan X-Trail may seem smaller than its predecessor but it is slightly wider and has a wheelbase that has been extended with 75mm. This allows you to enjoy more interior space and a more practical design. The interior has a raised centre console with ventilation controls and infotainment, as well as a brand new split-level dashboard.
The seven-seat model offers 135 litres of space while the five-seat models offer between 550 and 1,405 litres of space. All models offer true luxury; the entry-level XE has all the usual items like cruise control, air conditioning and Bluetooth. Safety features include EBD, ABS, six airbags and Isofix child seat anchors. You can also enjoy Nissan Connect, with smartphone integration, a seven inch touchscreen and satellite navigation.
The petrol range offers a 2.0 litre XE model, which has a six-speed gearbox and a four-cylinder engine that produces 106 kW and 200 Nm of torque. The 2.5 litre version offers 126 kW and 233 Nm of torque, with an Xtronic CVT transmission.
If you prefer diesel, this range offers four options in the LE, SE and XE specifications. They have the new 1.6 litre turbocharged diesel engine that produces 320 Nm and 96 kW, as well as a six-speed manual gearbox that boasts a very impressive fuel consumption of just 5.3 litre per 100 km. The new Nissan X-Trail also comes standard with a six year / 150,000 km warranty or a five year / 90,000 km service plan.
