Japanese automobile company Nissan has introduced its 3 new hybrid SUVs in the Indian market, namely Nissan X-Trail, Nissan Qashqai and Nissan Juke. The Nissan X-Trail will be the first to be introduced in the Indian market. This vehicle has made a comeback in the Indian market after 8 years. Nissan will produce these vehicles at its Chennai plant. The company is working fast on these three vehicles and they will be introduced in the Indian market soon. Nissan said that once the testing is complete, the X-Trail will be put up for sale first, followed by other models.
Nissan X-Trail Engine and Transmission
Internationally, the X-Trail is equipped with a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine (with 12-volt mild-hybrid technology) that churns out 163PS and 300Nm. The stronger-hybrid version is rated at 204PS (2WD) and 213PS (4WD). These engines can be paired with 6-speed manual and 6-speed AMT gearboxes. Nissan will launch the X-Trail with both 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive options.
Nissan X-Trail Exterior
Nissan designers have deliberately withdrawn the original X-Trail, which was complimented by the new car’s exterior styling in 2001. It differs from the notably sportier, more crossover-style Qashqai. The Nissan X-Trail gets a more aggressive front fascia with a prominent chrome grille section in the V-shape. It is paired with sharp headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights and below that, the redesigned bumper offers a bold presence. The front end gets new LED fog lamp housings, wider central air inlets and new skid plates.
Nissan X-Trail Interior
Inside, Nissan has bought up-to-date infotainment technology. It has a 12.3-inch digital driver display (standard on N-Connecta and up), a central 12.3-inch touchscreen (with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality – wireless on all but base Wikia grade), and options. With a 10.8-inch head-up display. “It’s visually ergonomic and stunning—and we’ve also purposefully placed the physical Air-Con buttons. It has a higher-quality finish, more storage space, and consistent white ambient lighting instead of the porous orange of the older model.” Butterfly-like details – opening the ‘central stowage box’ is smart – meaning the rear can access the box as easily as the front. The integrated rear door sunblind is a premium touch.
Nissan X-Trail Features
