In a bid to meet growing demand, the Nissan X-Trail is now available with a new 2.0 litre engine that delivers 177 PS.
The carmaker says sales have rocketed for the X-Trail by 50% in the year to October with the models fitted with the new engine costing from £29,095.
The Nissan X-Trail is the firm’s flagship crossover vehicle and the new larger capacity diesel unit delivers more power which potential buyers have been asking for, apparently.
The result is a refined and comfortable engine that is more suited for covering long distances.
Nissan X-Trail makes for a sound choice
Indeed, the Nissan X-Trail makes for a sound choice for those adventurous families looking for space and comfort in a car that has real off-roading abilities.
Part of that is down to the 380Nm of torque delivered by the new engine so there is better pulling power through the X-Trail’s rev range and it is a big boost in power over the current 1.6 litre 130 PS diesel unit.
Also new is the firm’s Xtronic automatic gearbox that is linked to a four-wheel-drive transmission which will help broaden the X-Trail’s appeal.
Available with five or seven seats, there’s plenty of space for luggage on board and some clever storage solutions as well. There’s also plenty of towing capacity with the new 2.0 litre engine for those who need it.

Owners will find that the new 2.0 Litre Nissan X-Trail will deliver economy of around 50 mpg on the combined cycle though it is slightly less in the all-wheel drive model.
Some of the vehicle’s premium features include double stitched leather upholstery, a powered panoramic sunroof and LED interior lighting. There are also quick heating front seats for those cold mornings and cooled/heated cupholders to keep drinks at a preferred temperature.
The new 2.0 litre Nissan X-Trail is available to order now and deliveries will begin early in 2017.
