The all new Nissan X-Trail will go on sale next year with the first cars being delivered July 2014.
The new X-Trail will feature the latest technology encompassing reducing in fuel consumption, co2 emission, safety assist and connectivity. Including the introduction of LED headlights - for both high and low beams (model dependent) and 19” alloy wheels. There will even be the option of seven seats, remote controlled power tailgate and will feature a split level cargo space.
The new model will employ Nissan's electronic four-wheel drive system, ALL MODE 4x4i, that is controlled by a rotary switch on the centre console, offering the choice between two-wheel drive, Auto mode or Lock offering permanent four-wheel drive.
In Auto mode, it can detect wheelspin, shifting power from the front wheels to the rear to maintain traction as needed, or if the conditions dictate you can lock it in to permanent four-wheel drive. There is Uphill Start Support and Advance Hill Descent Control to aid control.
It will also feature Active Ride Control that monitors the road surface to detect undulations which might affect the pitch of the car, altering the suspension damping to compensate. It will also see Active Engine Braking and Active Trace Control, which monitors the speed, steering angle, throttle opening and braking effort, by controlling the brakes individually to reduce understeer and aid on path steering.
Other technology includes the latest generation NissanConnect in-car navigation, comprising Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, app-ware, entertainment and navigation via a 7 inch colour screen. It utilises Google to report weather forecasts, the location of fuel stations, hotels, restaurants and many other points of interest.
The all new Nissan X-Trail will go on sale next year with first deliveries expected July 2014, and we will have engine and model line-up shortly.Published 10 September 2013
