The New Nissan X-TRAIL Tekna

Replacing the Sport and Trek models, the new entry-level Nissan X-TRAIL is the Acenta powered by the 173PS 2.0-litre diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission for optimal performance and economy. At £22,345 it costs £525 less than the previous equivalent Sport model but comes with additional features including an MP3 socket, new black-finished dashboard and chrome door handles.

That's on top of all those Nissan X-TRAIL favourites such as climate control, six CD player with Bluetooth, panoramic glass sunroof, alloy wheels, six airbags and cruise control.

The new top of the model range Nissan X-TRAIL is the Tekna which inherits the old Aventura Explorer's spec sheet - so leather, powered and heated seats, DVD satnav, rear parking camera, xenon headlights - and adds a few tasty morsels of its own.

Chief among the extras is a new design of 18in alloy wheel and, for the music lover, a Bose sound system. This comprises a digital, eight-channel amplifier and nine speakers acoustically tuned to the Nissan X-TRAIL interior for a live-performance sound.

In 173PS manual form the Nissan X-TRAIL Tekna costs from £25,595, £550 less than the previous Aventura Explorer. The popular automatic model, teamed with the 150PS diesel engine, costs from £26,795 with all the same Nissan X-TRAIL Tekna features as the manual.

Both the new Nissan X-TRAILs come with roof rails and standard ESP stability control, while the body-saving Scratch Shield paint technology is now an option with Ebisu Black and Atlas Blue metallic body colours.

Not an option is the Nissan X-TRAIL's superb on-road handling, acclaimed off-road ability and class-leading maximum braked towing capability of 2200kg.

To mark the new Nissan X-TRAIL's arrival in showrooms in June 2009, Nissan is offering 0% finance (with minimum 10% deposit) for buyers who sign up for Preferences, Nissan's personal contract purchase plan. That means an Nissan X-TRAIL Acenta can be yours for £219 a month for 36 months, with the Nissan X-TRAIL Tekna £239 a month (automatic £259).

And if you want to add a little extra style there's the Nissan X-TRAIL Style Pack of front entry guards, rear styling plate and side bars with steps for £800 fitted, saving more than £220.
