Nissan X-Trail battles the desert with this red Desert Warrior version [w/video]

Driving on well-paved roads is pretty easy, especially if you are behind the wheel of a new Nissan X-Trail. Managing through some rough roads and rugged terrain would not be as easy, but the Nissan X-Trail should still be able to pull through. But, how about driving on a desert?

Sure enough, driving on a desert is not an easy thing to accomplish. It is basically because the desert is literally filled with sand. Traction, handling and steering are different when one is on the desert. Pushing the brakes too hard or slamming hard on the accelerator could push the tires into the sand. There is also the challenge of managing through giant sand dunes. Essentially, the fear of driving on the desert is related to getting stuck in the sand.

But this is not a concern with this Nissan X-Trail on the video. This Nissan X-Trail is not your ordinary X-Trail. After all, it is the Nissan X-Trail Desert Warrior, which as its name indicates, is all-set and prepped to bring the driving battle to the desert. Obviously, this Nissan X-Trail Desert Warrior features no wheels. It is fitted with a set of probably customized metal tracks that allow the Nissan X-Trail Desert Warrior to traverse the sandy desert sans any major difficulties. While there are tires suitable for challenging the desert, these metal tracks are more suitable in gaining better traction, improving handling and enhancing steering.

The video – a promotional two-minute clip created or commissioned by the Japanese carmaker – starts off with a brief yet precise description of the desert, in the Arab language. Around 14 seconds into the video, a red Nissan X-Trail Desert Warrior enters the scene, accommodating three occupants. This red Nissan X-Trail Desert Warrior is seen battling the sand dunes, leaving a trail behind.

However, in the middle of the desert adventure of this trio, they ran out of water. So, they cruised and battled the desert once more until they found a tent where a man was more than willing to give them some water to quench their thirst. Interestingly, this guy also brought a white regular Nissan X-Trail. These four men took off with the white Nissan X-Trail, and once again challenged the desert. If there is something that this video promotes, it is that a conventional Nissan X-Trail with conventional wheels is capable of dynamically making its way through the desert and starting a new adventure.

Nissan’s marketers deserve a round of applause for this work. It was good enough to show that the Nissan X-Trail is also a vehicle that is capable of tackling the desert environment – a campaign aimed at attracting customers in markets like the Middle East. However, the Nissan X-Trail Desert Warrior is not for sale. It is a marketing tool especially created for the Jeddah International Exhibition and Convention Center, in Saudi Arabia.

Nissan expects to sell 80,000 new X-Trails in Europe and Russia

Nissan is expecting to double sales of the third-generation X-Trail in Europe and Russia to 80,000 units after endowing it with a less rugged design and a front-wheel-drive option. Timothee Fondeur, the X-Trail's project manager for Europe, told Automotive News Europe that the carmaker is confident of doubling sales of the X-Trail in Europe and Russia.

Nissan will start sales of the SUV in July. To boost sales of the X-Trail in Europe, Nissan did not seek a replacement for a seven-seat variant of its Qashqai crossover, which means that the SUV is now the brand’s only SUV with optional seven seats.

Nissan also introduced a front-wheel-drive variant, which it expects to account for half of the sales in Europe. The carmaker plans to sell in all western Europe countries the third-generation X-Trail powered by a 130hp 1.6-liter diesel engine emitting around 20 percent less carbon dioxide than the previous 2.0-liter diesel engine.

Nissan will sell in Russia an X-Trail with a specific gasoline engine lineup. Nissan sees Russia to be largest European market for the new X-Trail, followed by the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and France.

The X-Trail -- based on Renault-Nissan's new Common Module Family (CMF) architecture – measures 4643mm long, which means the SUV is 17mm longer than the current model. It also boasts of 76mm longer wheelbase and is 30mm wider and 5mm lower.

The ground clearance remains the same at 210mm. Nissan will build the for-Europe X-Trails in Japan and produce the for-Russia models locally. Nissan is expects global sales of around 500,000 units of the X-Trail next year, up from 93,500 in 2013. It is being sold in the US under the Rogue name.

Nissan introduced the all-new X-Trail/Rogue at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. This marks the global debut of the 2014 X-Trail. It doesn’t anymore appear as rugged as the former model as its styling is more upscale and includes a set of modern 19-inch alloys, sculptured muscular lines, and "boomerang" taillights.

Nissan said that the models with higher specs will receive full LED headlights with daytime running lights as soon as the car starts selling in the first quarter of 2014. Its interior cabin consists of a combination of chrome, metal and piano black finishes.

It uses a seating arrangement inspired by the theatre. Nissan also offers the option of adding two more seats for a seven-seat layout. A cloth fabric is used by the lower-spec models while the upper-spec models use full leather upholstery with contrasting stitching.

The rear doors of the 2014 X-Trail open to nearly 80 degrees, allowing for easy access inside the cabin. Those who are on the middle row seat will love having more space for their knees due to the elongated wheelbase. Cargo capacity is increased further when the third row of seats are folded forward. The middle row can also recline and slide.

It is fitted with the newest generation of Nissan's ALL MODE 4x4i system that can be controlled via a rotary switch mounted on the center console.

Nissan offers the driver the choice between 2WD, Auto mode or Lock which offers permanent four-wheel drive. In addition, the 2014 X-Trail comes with Active Ride Control that can monitor the road up ahead to detect undulations and will then make adjustments.

It also comes with Active Engine Brake, which can reinforce engine braking during cornering or when decelerating to a standstill.

The new X-Trail/Rogue comes with Active Trace Control that consists of an on-board sensor monitoring steering angle, speed, braking effort and throttle opening to brake the wheels individually as a way to lessen understeer. The new model will also be available with Uphill Start Support and Advance Hill Descent Control.

Dubbed as the Hi-Cross Concept, this new concept car from Nissan marks a possible change in the brand’s design direction. Through this new concept, it appears that Nissan wants to increase its lead in the crossover market. With this, the brand also hopes to expand its Juke-Qashqai-Murano range. Made in Japan, this concept appears elegant but is purposeful and while it is compact, it offers enough room space.

Still it remains to be a true Nissan. The brand believes that while the concept is indeed smart, it should not be limited to solely one form. This is why even if the external proportions appear modest, the inside allows a total of three rows of seats that can fit in a total of seven occupants. In terms of dimensions, the Hi-Cross Concept has overall length of 4,660 mm, total width of 1,850 mm, and height of 1,670 mm. Wheelbase is 2,780 mm and sits on the alloy 21-inch wheels. The way the concept car has been styled is that it makes use of the usual design cues the brand is known for and mixes it with various new elements.

Take the front section for example. It continues to have the signature V-shaped grille and while it does have the unique lighting signatures, this is made possible through the new headlamps. Another interesting feature is the hybrid drivetrain which makes use of the electric motor that is powered by a compact lithium-ion battery developed by Nissan itself.

This is then paired with the direction injection 2.0-liter petrol engine. With this combination, the performance is similar to what one can expect of a 2.5-liter unit. However, the fuel economy and the CO2 emissions are the same as those from a smaller engine. The battery technology on the hybrid drivetrain is the same as that on the Nissan LEAF. Its lithium-ion battery allows for fast charging and offers high output.

Meanwhile, the high-level motor control helps with the acceleration and allows for the petrol engine to be downsized, thus maximizing not only fuel economy but lower emissions. Specifically for the Hi-Cross Concept, the HEV drivetrain is founded on a rather new technology. Though this was created by Nissan to be fitted to model with front-wheel drive, this was modified in order to adapt it for the four-wheel drive. A unique approach that the brand implemented for this system was in terms of packaging and affordability.

Nissan made use of the one-motor and two-clutch technology and when mixed it with the continuously variable XTRONIC transmission, improves fuel economy by 10% especially when compared to previous versions of the CVT. The Hi-Cross Concept also utilizes a low friction design by having pulleys whose shafts have smaller diameters. A new belt is added to have the best possible ratio coverage and thus improve efficiency.

Going back to the hybrid drivetrain, the advantage of having a lithium-ion battery and an electric motor is that the engine can be turned off anytime, a situation that typically happens when driving in the city. Using the clutch, the engine can even be totally disengaged so that when braking, there is room for the energy to be recovered. Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. Executive Vice President Andy Palmer shared that when the brand came out with the Murano, it resulted in the creation of the crossover class.

With the addition of the Juke and the Qashqai, the brand was able to expand this segment further, he added. By presenting the Hi-Cross Concept, he continued, Nissan is showing that even if it leads the crossover segment, it continues to study new ideas in order to strengthen its lead further. The Hi-Cross Concept will be officially unveiled by Nissan during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

The new Platinum edition X-TRAIL from Nissan is both beautiful and tough. Nissan took inspiration from platinum, a special type of metal, to create this X-TRAIL4x4. This glamorous model comes with extra equipment that that can’t be seen on other models in its range. Placing more protection plates below the bumpers increases the level of protection and the style of the vehicle. At the sides, there are chrome side steps as well as chrome door protection mouldings.

The interior of the Platinum uses leather upholstery and front seats that are electrically-adjustable and are heated. Satellite navigation, iPod connectivity and Bluetooth are featured on its sophisticated new touch screen communication unit.

For added protection, it has been equipped with a reversing camera. The images are transmitted onto a small screen integrated into the rear view mirror.

The Platinum is powered by the X-TRAIL’s advanced 2.0dCi diesel engine with a pick from either manual or automatic transmissions. The manual can deliver 173PS but it’s still capable of returning an average of 44.1mpg.

But consumers would be surprised to know that the X-TRAIL Platinum is highly affordable. In fact, it is priced lower than the Tekna version on which it’s based. The manual is priced at £29,180 while the automatic is priced at £30,560. The order books have been opened for this model, of which, just 200 units will be built.

The latest iteration of the Nissan X-Trail features a number of exterior, mechanical and aerodynamic modifications as well as improvements in perceived quality and functionality.

As a result, the new Nissan X-Trail now consumes less fuel and emits less carbon dioxide. These changes include a more integrated front fascia that features redesigned grille, headlights and bumper assembly. Upon closer inspection, the grille is of higher quality and now flows down into the vehicle’s bumper assembly. The grille still features the twin angled struts in either side of the Nissan logo – a hallmark cue among Nissan's SUVs.

Meanwhile, the lower part of the vehicle’s bumper is now angled outwards to further indicate its wider track and more aggressive stance. Compared to its predecessor, the new Nissan X-Trail is specified with lights that are sleeker and that appear more techical. Main lights are either Xenon or halogen projectors -- depending on grade – while the high beam is of halogen parabole. Its turn indicators are still integrated in the assembly just above the headlights.

Entry-grade X-Trail features a silver background while mid- and high-grade versions Trail now feature a black background. Its fog lamps are now mounted beneath the headlights, just recessed in the bumper. Meanwhile, the rear end of the new Nissan X-Trail boasts of vertical lights with LED running/braking lights -- thereby helping enhance visibility, safety and fuel economy.

The vehicle’s turn signal is now integrated into the lower section of the light assembly, with the running/brake lights located to the outside. The Nissan X-Trail now rides on wider, ten-spoke 18-inch alloy wheel (up to 225/55/18), allowing for a more aggressive on-the-road stance.
