Nissan X-Trail gets major makeover

THE Nissan X-Trail is the world's best-selling SUV and according to its maker is being made even better with a robust redesign inside and out.

There's a higher-quality interior, additional practicality and innovative new technologies to make life on the road even safer.

It goes on sale in the UK in August and, along with other upgrades, will be available with ProPILOT autonomous drive technology which will control the steering, acceleration and braking in a single lane on highways during heavy traffic congestion and high-speed cruising.

Changes to exterior styling include the latest Nissan "V-motion" grille plus new headlamp clusters and fog lamps integrated into a restyled front bumper.

The biggest change to the profile of the new X-Trail is the addition of a chrome side moulding across the base of the two doors.

The X-Trial is often used as a workhorse and the boot on the new model is larger than before.

Capacity is up from 550 litres to 565 litres on the five-seat version with all seats in place while on those with seven-seat interiors luggage space is as before at 445 litres. Total space with all seats folded increases to 1,996 litres.

Standard equipment includes six airbags plus driver assistance systems such as electronic brake force distribution and stability control.

Other standard equipment includes cruise control with speed limiter, Bluetooth connectivity, manual air-conditioning, electric folding and heated door mirrors and alloy wheels.

The range of three engines for the latest X-Trail also remains, including the 2.0-litre 177ps diesel launched in 2016.

There is also a lower powered 1.6-litre 130ps diesel, a 1.6 petrol with 163ps on tap and the powertrain line up includes six speed manual or CVT XTronic automatic transmissions and two or four-wheel drive systems.

Emissions range from 129 to 158g/km for the diesels and 145g/km for the petrol engine. That equates to a best fuel economy of 57.6mpg for the 1.6 diesel and 45.6mpg for the petrol version.

Prices for the latest X-Trial have yet to be announced but expect them to start at around £24,550.

Since its launch in 2000 miore than 3.7 million models have been sold worldwide and in Europe sales of the third generation X-Trail - released in 2014- have already topped the 115,000 mark .
