This is the latest version of the Nissan X-Trail. It will be the largest Nissan SUV you can buy in Germany and, thanks to its ePower system, it will currently be the only electrified 7-seater in its segment.
Nissan X-Trail: presentation, launch, and prices
In China, you can already get the new X-Trail. Now the European version was also presented on September 6th.
Prices are not known yet. However, we assume that the X-Trail could be available for 30,000 euros. But we still have to wait for an exact price communication for the X-Trail.
Nissan X-Trail: exterior design
Even at first glance, it is noticeable that the new X-Trail has a sporty, modern, and high-quality appearance. Above all, the manufacturer wants to convey robustness and solidity – an everyday companion that you can rely on.
This is also evident in the look, which also appeals to the adventurers among you. Of course, the floating roof as a typical Nissan element should not be missing, but the striking headlights or the muscular wheel housings also show that the X-Trail knows how to present itself.
The side view also shows the C-pillar reminiscent of a dolphin’s fin, which brings a certain dynamic to the rear.
A horizontal line has been attached above and below the license plate, and the split taillights reaching into the side of the vehicle also show how wide and therefore down-to-earth the X-Trail is.
Nissan X-Trail: engines and performance
If you want, you can get the X-Trail with ePower. This drive system is special because you don’t have to charge externally, and you still get a fully electric driving experience.
The system consists of a battery and an integrated drive train. This includes a 1.5-liter petrol engine with 158 hp, a power generator, an inverter, and a 150 kW electric motor.
The petrol engine is only used to generate electricity, the electric motor drives the wheels.
This system aims to ensure that driving is very efficient, and that fuel consumption is low. In addition, there are no delays in the throttle response, because the electric motor is responsible for the drive.
The X-Trail was also given an ePedal Step, which is primarily intended to help relieve stress in city traffic. The vehicle can therefore be accelerated and braked solely with the accelerator pedal.
Last but not least, an e-4ORCE all-wheel drive is used, i.e. an all-wheel drive system specially designed for electrified drives.
If you don’t want the ePower version, you can also get the conventional combustion engine with a mild hybrid system. It is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 163 hp. Nissan assumes that most customers in Europe will opt for the classic combustion engine.
Nissan X Trail: interior
A lot will happen in the interior of the X-Trail because user-friendliness is said to set new standards in the segment. High-quality materials and well-thought-out details are also advantages of the new generation.
The ergonomics and the feel of the switches and buttons were looked at particularly closely. Unlike competing models, simple and intuitive controls for air conditioning and heating have been used here. But of course, there is also a central screen, which has buttons for audio and navigation.
Under the armrest between the front seats, there is a generous storage compartment that, thanks to the intelligent opening, can also be used by the people sitting in the back.
Getting into the rear has been made much easier by opening the rear doors to an angle of almost 90 degrees. And sitting in the back doesn’t mean that you have to do without comfort. You get controls for air conditioning, heating, and also USB ports for powering electronic devices.
Above all, the X-Trail is flexible. The second row of seats can be folded down in a 40:20:40 ratio. There is a through-loading hatch, which also makes it possible to transport longer objects. If necessary, the second row of seats can be pushed forward so that more trunk space is available.
If that’s not enough, you can also have a third row of seats installed if you wish. This makes the X-Trail a 7-seater and can easily transport people up to 1.60 meters tall in the third row of seats. If you have a 5-door, the trunk volume is 585 liters with the rear seats upright.
