New Nissan X-Trail range announced

Nissan has announced full pricing and specifications for the all-new X-Trail – the stylish and dynamic model that will reaffirm the brand’s command of the crossover segment when it arrives in UK showrooms this July.

Sporting sleek and modern looks and incorporating a suite of in-class technology firsts, the all-new X-Trail builds on the dependable and accomplished reputation of its predecessor while redefining the compact SUV and further strengthening the crossover family.

A highly competitive and flexible pricing structure has been developed to ensure the latest iteration appeals in equal measure to both the loyal army of devotees and new customers.

Prices start from just £22,995 for the entry-level five-seat 2WD Visia, which is £2,600 less than its predecessor. Meanwhile, the five-seat 2WD Acenta, expected to be the most popular model in the range, costs just £24,795 – £800 less than the outgoing entry level Acenta.

Four equipment-packed grades: exceptional flexibility

From launch, the all-new X-Trail will be available in four familiar grades – Visia, Acenta, n-tec and Tekna – giving buyers exceptional flexibility to choose a model that best suits their lifestyle and their budget.

The use of premium materials throughout means each variant has a high quality, luxurious feel and generous equipment levels enhance this further.

Priced from £22,995, Visia models sport stylish 17″ alloy wheels and are given further kerb appeal with an eye-catching signature strip of LED daytime running lights.

Inside, an array of technological features including Bluetooth connectivity and an MP3 compatible sound system with AUX-IN, air conditioning, heated door mirrors, follow-me-home lighting and an electric parking brake are also among the equipment included as standard.

The all-new models feature one of the most advanced meter displays yet seen,  with 5 inch TFT colour display incorporating 12 graphic displays accessible on rotation, offering advice and warnings including average and actual speeds, navigation turn-by-turn instructions, audio content, traffic sign recognition, eco driving advice and torque distribution settings in 4WD mode.

Moving up through the range the Acenta, priced from £24,795, adds privacy glass, dual zone climate control, electric folding mirrors, a power sunroof, automatic lights and wipers and front and rear parking sensors to the lengthy equipment list.

Both the Visia and Acenta models come with the option of a Smart Vision Pack that adds many of the most desirable driver aids and safety enhancements in one convenient and affordable package. Priced at £495, the Visia Smart Vision Pack adds automatic lights, High Beam Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Emergency Braking, Traffic Sign Recognition and front and rear parking sensors to the standard equipment. Meanwhile, the Acenta Smart Vision Pack, which costs £450, adds High Beam Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Emergency Braking and Traffic Sign Recognition to the standard specs.

Buyers choosing the n-tec, which starts at £27,295, get everything included on the Acenta with Smart Vision Pack plus a wealth of additional goodies including 19″ alloys, intelligent i-Key locking with push-button ignition, DAB radio, roof rails, power tailgate, Around View Monitor giving 360-degree view around the car and the latest generation NissanConnect system with smartphone integration and built-in apps.

Meanwhile, the range-topping Tekna, which is priced from £29,295, adds even more luxury and technology, including Bi-LED headlamps, heated leather seats and an electric driver’s seat with lumbar support. A number of additional safety features such as a Blind Spot Warning and Driver Attention Alert are also included, as is the Park Assist automatic parking feature.

Powerful and Refined. Comfortable and Capable

Beneath the bonnet a powerful yet frugal 1.6dCi 131PS engine delivers an abundance of torque (320 Nm) and excellent refinement at all speeds, making the all-new models equally at home on and off the beaten path – dual qualities that contributed to the outstanding success of its predecessor.

Acenta, n-tec and Tekna variants are available in a choice of two and four-wheel-drive forms, and are available with XTRONIC CVT transmission. The 4WD variants gain the latest generation of the ALL MODE 4×4-i system.

In 2WD manual guise, all-new X-Trail offers emissions of 129g/km CO2 and impressive economy returns of up to 57.6 mpg (combined cycle).

Intelligent interior offers ultimate flexibility:

Taking flexibility to the next level, every variant is available with a choice of five or seven seats. The added convenience that comes with a third row of seats adds just £700 to the price of the five-seat equivalent.

Either way, intelligent interior design makes the most of the model’s increased dimensions and incorporates a raked theatre seating layout to ensure every passenger has a great view out and class-leading legroom.

A clever sliding and reclining function allows owners to adapt the luggage space and comfort to their needs. The optional third row seats have a double fold function that allows them to be folded completely flat.
