Nissan is introducing a new sporty trim level to its X-Trail 4x4 range, the Nissan X-Trail n-tec+. The X-Trail n-tec+, which is tagged between the Acenta and flagship Tekna models, dons a look distinct from other off-road vehicles as it features 18-inch alloy wheels, a chrome finish to the front fog lamps and side bars with side steps.
The X-Trail n-tec+ promises more with the equipment that come in as standard. The equipment includes Nissan Connect with a five-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calls and music streaming.
X-Trail n-tec+ also features Nissan’s Around View Monitor 360 degree parking system. The system uses color front, rear and passenger side cameras to ensure that drivers of the X-Trail n-tec+ have a clear view of his surroundings when maneuvering.
The 4x4 also features an electric tilt and slide panoramic sunroof and an Intelligent key for keyless entry and start. Additional equipment includes climate control, cruise control, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers and rear privacy glass.
X-Trail n-tec+ is powered by a 2.0-litre dCi turbodiesel engine that provides up to 173PS of output and 360Nm of torque, enabling the vehicle to tow up to 2,200kg.
Ensuring the X-Trail n-tec+ nimbleness in all kinds of weather is Nissan’s All-Mode 4x4-i system with Uphill Start Support and Downhill Drive Support. Nissan is now selling the X-at only £27,790.
Nissan is offering a limited-time offer of a complimentary upgrade to retail customers, bringing down the price by £2,000 to just £25,790. Nissan is also offering the X-Trail n-tec+ through three years zero percent financing and three years low cost servicing for £399.
Nissan X-Trail is already renowned for its superior comfort, durability and practicality. However, with the recent upgrades, it has even enhanced the interior’s functionality and quality and introduced some impressive aerodynamic and mechanical changes. These significant changes improve the X-Trail’s carbon output and fuel economy.
The most significant revision was done to the anterior aspect of the Nissan X-Trail such as the totally redesigned grille, new bumper assembly and headlights to integrate them better to the overall build of the car. The more technical and elegant appearance straight from the front improves the car’s dynamic look. The grille is made of high quality material and is designed to flow smoothly to the bumper assembly. To show a more stable posture, the lower portion creates a wider track by angling it outwards.
The general sensation from the front creates a sense of harmony of elements from the top down the bottom. The grille preserves the Nissan logo with twin angled struts on both sides, a signature trait that’s uniform among Nissan’s SUVs.
The lights appear more technical and are sleeker in look by using halogen or Xenon projectors for the primary lights while halogen parabole were used for the high beam. The turn signals are still fused with the assembly, located on top of the headlights. For medium and high-grade models, the background and entry grades are painted respectively with black and silver. Fog lamps are also settled in the bumper and can be seen under the headlights.
For an improved fuel economy, enhanced visibility and guaranteed safety, the vertical lights for the braking and running lights of the Nissan X-trail were upgraded with LED light technology. The turn signal is placed at the light assembly’s lower part while the running/brake lights are situated externally.
