Nissan’s most advanced SUV to date, the all-new Nissan X-Trail, will arrive in four grades,
a choice between five or seven seats, as well as the option of two- or four-wheel drive. It is
built on the all-new CMF-C platform.

It comes with a comprehensive suite of advanced safety and technology features –
including the availability of Nissan’s semi-autonomous ProPILOT driver-assist system.”

The lowest priced model, the X-Trail ST has 17-inch alloy wheels, LED lighting front and
rear, roof rails, shift-by-wire, high-beam assist, a rear parking camera and sensors and
more. An 8.0-inch infotainment screen is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible, 4
USB slots (2 Type-A +2 Type-C).

Active safety includes, AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection, rear AEB with pedestrian
detection and cross-traffic alert, Lane departure prevention and Intelligent Cruise Control
complete a value-packed offering.

The ST-L builds on the ST model’s equipment with the introduction of ProPILOT with Lane
Keep Assist, privacy glass, fog lights, a digital Around-View monitor, heated front seats,
dual-zone climate control, sliding rear seats, front parking sensors, synthetic leather trim,
practical 40:20:40 split rear seats, Tyre pressure sensor monitor and 18-inch alloy wheels
complete the ST-L offering.

The X-Trail Ti introduces genuine leather-accented seating, 19-inch alloy wheels, a
panoramic sunroof, LED turn signals, a Smart Rear View Mirror, tri-zone climate control,
Adaptive Driving Beam, Auto wipers and power operated rear tailgate. The technology
offering is significant, with a 12.3-inch, navigation-equipped touchscreen, a 10.8-inch
Head-Up Display, wireless phone charging and wireless Apple CarPlay, and a 12.3-inch
TFT digital driver display.

Nissan X-Trail Ti-L features a heated steering wheel, Bose 10-speaker sound system, full
Nappa leather seating with memory seat function, rear sunshades, hands free rear
tailgate, heated rear outboard seats, remote engine start and more.

Safety takes a further step forward across all models with standard rear cross traffic alert
and auto emergency braking with cyclist and pedestrian detection, intelligent emergency
lane keeping, and blind-spot warning and intervention.

The X-Trail’s new multi-mode all-wheel-drive system has driver-selectable Eco, Standard
and Sport modes linked to five traction modes and algorithms to suit conditions such as
bitumen, dirt, ice and snow, with Hill Descent Control for modulated downhill off-road
driving on 4WD models.

New X-Trail has the latest CMF-C engineering platform. Towing capacity has increased by
500kg to 2.0 tonnes, while revisions to the 2.5 litre engine have delivered a 9kW lift in
power, and a 18Nm increase in torque, to 135kW and 244Nm.

The Nissan X-Trail features an innovative luggage-storage system with dual luggage
boards allowing for 16 different boot configurations, allowing storage of long items, secure
storage of bags or fragile packages, and for hidden storage of valuable items.

X-Trail’s versatile twin-board modular rear cargo space, with 16 different configurations, is
unique to the medium SUV segment and is offered on ST-L models and above.

This sounds like an impressive new generation Nissan X-Trail. We will borrow a vehicle
from Nissan for a week and provide our thoughts and opinions afterwards.
