New Nissan X-Trail in detail: New exterior design
The Nissan X-Trail has always been known for its sculpted and muscular styling, with chiselled lines, high wheel arches and elegant curves on the bonnet. All of those characteristics remain, and are now showcased through a distinctive and robust redesign of the front end, adding a new dynamism and more premium styling cues.

When it comes to the exterior of the new X-Trail, at its heart is Nissan’s latest ‘V-motion’ grille, wider than before for a more impactful appearance on the road and echoed in the design of the bumper beneath. The redesign makes much greater use of the X-Trail’s body colour, with the visible black plastic benefiting from a smart new gloss black finish.

At the rear of the new Nissan X-Trail, the bumper has been redesigned to give it a more robust look with new chrome detailing. The rear lamp signature has been upgraded to become full LED. The biggest change to the profile of the new Nissan X-Trail is the addition of a chrome side moulding across the base of the two doors, which creates a more dynamic appearance.

The full LED lamps on the new Nissan X-Trail have greater illumination for better visibility, enhancing road safety. On high beam, the beam pattern is now wider than before, also improving visibility. The front fog lamps have evolved and are cleverly integrated into the new front bumper; they have changed from a round shape to a rectangular one.

The rim’s width has been widened from 34mm to 37.5mm to provide a more comfortable and safer grip. A new premium style comes from the satin silver detailing on the central spoke which echoes the shape of the car’s iconic ‘V-motion’ front grille.

Six of the existing exterior colours have been carried over, with five vibrant new additional shades added: Orange, Palatial Ruby, Gold Beige, Blue Pearl and Dark Brown.

Enhanced practicality
The new Nissan X-Trail is a spacious five or seven-seat crossover aimed at adventure-loving families. As with all Nissan vehicles, every upgrade, no matter how large or small, has been undertaken with the customer in mind.

The Nissan X-Trail 2018 delivers best-in-class front head room and the supreme comfort of fatigue-reducing Zero Gravity front seats. There’s a second row that slides and reclines, providing Easy Flex Seating, so you can adjust for maximum leg room, more cargo space or anywhere in between. With available tasteful touches like Power Panoramic Moonroof and leather-appointed seats, this is one natural, relaxed and decidedly upscale environment.

The boot on the new Nissan X-Trail is larger than before. Thanks to improved packaging, VDA capacity is up from 550l to 565l on the five-seat version with all seats in place. The capacity on seven-seat interiors (445l) remains unchanged. The total space with all seats folded flat increases to 1,996l.

Every new X-Trail boot comes with Nissan’s innovative Flexible Luggage Board System, which allows for shelves and dividers to be adjusted in any one of nine configurations. These include a hidden compartment to keep valuables out of sight, making it the ideal base for family days out.

Drivers of the new Nissan X-Trail will enjoy Nissan Motion Activated Liftgate, which provides easier access than ever before. Just kick under the rear bumper to automatically open the available Motion Activated Liftgate, without reaching for a key or juggling armfuls of stuff.

Improved interior refinement
The cabin of the new Nissan X-Trail boasts a raft of upgrades to enhance the existing high-quality feel. Entering the car, the striking new steering wheel, which has been increased by 17 per cent from the top in accord to give a clearer visibility to the combination metre, is the first thing drivers will notice. It echoes the design of Nissan’s newest models globally and is standard across the new X-Trail range. Now D-shaped, the horizontal base means an easier entry and exit for the driver as well as a more sporty look and feel.

Whether customers select the five or seven-seat version of the new Nissan X-Trail, the leather upholstery that’s standard on SL grade features enhanced quilting to create more defined seat contours.

Other cabin upgrades add to the higher-quality ambience and increased refinement of the new Nissan X-Trail. A new leather knee pad on both sides of the centre console has been added, while the area above the glove box has been given a more contemporary finish. The air vents now feature a new gloss black surface. The new Nissan X-Trail has a wider range of interior door trims to distinguish the different grades, while the central armrest storage area has been redesigned. All models are equipped with the CVT XTronic automatic transmission with a restyled gear selector which features a new leather-style gaiter.

Depending on the grade chosen, other available features include an opening panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, privacy glass, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and roof rails.

A wide range of genuine Nissan accessories are available including, load carrier, cross bars, front and rear under covers, bumper kick plate, dog guard, roof bars and a fixed tow-bar with electric hook-up. For test drive options, call Nissan toll free on 80050011.
