Presented in 2013, the 3rd gen X-Trail is now the beneficiary of a long awaited mid-cycle upgrade this year. The European equivalent of the Nissan Rogue, the mid-size crossover will now flaunt sharper aesthetics, better packaging, more comfortable features and a few tech novelties.
Juventus and Real Madrid will battle it out head to head to determine the champion in this year's UEFA Champions League in Europe, in what is considered the largest soccer event for club teams on the continent. The final match will also host the unveiling of the facelifted version of the X-Trail from Nissan, the official automotive partner of UEFA Champions League.
In what is considered as a state-of-the-art tech is the ProPILOT autonomous driving system which will be offered for the aforementioned SUV next year. The new tech will manage the acceleration, steering and braking in a single lane highway in heavy traffic jam and high-speed travel. The system is part of the Japanese automaker's Intelligent Mobility array of tech that also involves Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
The Japanese automaker revealed that ever since the 3rd-gen X-Trail was launched, more than 115,000 units of the SUV have been delivered to European drivers. Sales doubled from 2014 to 2015 and the total increased again by an impressive 40 percent in the subsequent year. The 3rd-gen X-trail will be on sale this year in August.
