The new Nissan X-Trail is a sporty, hybrid crossover that comes with Nissan e-Power powertrain technology. This technology enables Nissan to become carbon neutral by 2030, and it uses the gasoline engine to power the electric motor instead of batteries. This arrangement gives the car peppy acceleration, smooth deceleration, and an extremely quiet powertrain. Moreover, Nissan has been able to meet stringent emission targets in China with this system.
The Nissan X-Trail is available in two-row or three-row seating. It also comes with a 100V AC power source, which is strong enough to provide power in emergencies. The car is also fitted with a touchscreen infotainment system and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. In addition, an optional 10.8-inch head-up display is also available.
The new Nissan X-Trail is due to arrive in showrooms in Australia in the fourth quarter of 2022. It has received a significant facelift since it was launched in 2013. Its design now sports a wider grille, more functional air intakes, and squared-off edges. It will also feature a more comprehensive safety suite. It should remain competitively priced and offer many years of service.
The interior has been entirely redesigned. A 12.3-inch digital driver’s display sits at the center of a sleek and minimalist dashboard. This central touchscreen runs Nissan’s latest infotainment system. However, physical shortcut buttons for important functions are still available. The new Nissan X-Trail offers an array of safety features, such as lane-departure warning, rear-cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitoring.
The second-generation Nissan X-Trail was introduced with a diesel engine. For the 2022 model year, the American version of the car got a new turbocharged three-cylinder engine. In addition, the new Nissan X-Trail also comes with Nissan’s proprietary e-4ORCE drivetrain, a second generation of drivetrain technology that promises increased power, smoothness, and quietness.
The new Nissan X-Trail has seven seats and a more rounded profile than its predecessors. It shares its platform and most of its interior tech with the Nissan Qashqai. However, unlike the Qashqai, the X-Trail isn’t as big as its rivals, so it’s not as spacious as a full-sized SUV. However, it offers plenty of room for luggage when not in use.
The Nissan X is available in three trim levels, ST+, ST-S, and Ti, plus a luxury version called Ti-L. All versions are equipped with full electric windows, a single CD player, four airbags, and remote central locking. But it lacks heated seats and rear climate controls. Overall, this car offers great value and plenty of space for its passengers. It can comfortably seat four adults and a small child in an average-sized car seat.
The Nissan X-Trail has evolved a lot since its initial introduction in North America. The X-Trail was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 2000, and was first sold in Japan in November 2000. Initially, both models were separate models, but after the 2013 redesign, the two models share a lot of similarities. It’s also available in Mexico, Australia, the Philippines, China, and Taiwan.
