The all-new Nissan X-Trail has been revealed ahead of the SUV’s official unveiling with modern styling and advanced technologies. The new generation also introduces an electrified powertrain technology to make it more appealing in eco-friendly focused markets such as China.
The Nissan X-Trail has been classified by the brand as a segment leader and best-seller in China and is a key model in the Nissan NEXT transformation plan. The new model aims to offers an attractive package of dynamic performance and tech to seamlessly support customer lifestyles.
The new Nissan X-Trail elevates the SUV segment through cutting-edge design, dedication to detail, and advanced technologies that showcase intelligent driving and enhanced connectivity, defining the company’s role as a leader in mobility solutions.
Nissan hasn’t dived into what’s new on the X-Trial but in an accompanying teaser video it confirms that the new model will receive a VC-turbocharger, wider opening rear doors, spacious luggage room, a touchscreen infotainment with a virtual personal assistant, enhanced ProPilot adaptive cruise control, new intelligent 4WD drive selector and zero gravity seats.
Along with the X-Trail, Nissan introduces the latest e-POWER electrified powertrain technology, positioned to open the next chapter of electrification for Nissan in the Chinese market.
Nissan’s e-POWER technology features a 100 per cent electric motor-driven system that delivers responsive acceleration, smooth deceleration, and quietness similar to an EV, while removing the need for external charging thanks to an on-board gasoline engine that charges the battery pack when necessary. Since its introduction in Japan, e-POWER has proven to be a hit among consumers with a variety of e-POWER models expanding in the market. So far, over 500 000 vehicles equipped with this technology have been sold.
Our first look at the new Nissan X-Trail was when the Japanese brand’s North American arm revealed details of the Rogue last year. This reveal detailed a revised electric power steering with a quick gear ratio along with a new multi-link suspension setup at the rear. Within the cabin, the reveal noted a full-colour 10,8-inch head-up display, a 12,3-inch digital cluster (or 7,0-inch item on lower-spec models) and a 9,0-inch touchscreen display.
