The new Nissan X-Trail arrives at dealerships on the 17th July and if it is as popular as the new Qashqai it will be an instant success.
The residual value experts at ‘CAP’ are predicting that the new X-Trail will retain 53% of its value over 3 years / 30,000 miles, which makes it a tempting purchase for private buyers and an attractive proposition for fleet managers.
Nissan quote that the new £24,795 X-Trail Acenta 2WD five-seater manual will retain a -residual value of 52% (which equates to £12,800) over three years, which is a 9% increase on its equivalent predecessor.
Whole life costs have improved with the X-Trail costing 10% less than the equivalent outgoing model at a cost of -0.99 per mile compared to £1.10 per mile. Calculations are over three years / 30,000 miles and were provided by KeeResources KWIKcarcost.
We have waited a long time for the new X-Trail and it will be interesting to see how it fairs up to the competition. It should be a solid proposition for fleet buyers, with strong residuals and with the new X-Trail dCi 130 turbodiesel engine recording (NEDC figures) a combined consumption of 57.6mpg with CO2 emissions of 129g/km, costs will reduce.
And company users will like the new tech features such as forward emergency braking, driver attention alert, traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning, blind spot warning, moving object detection and high beam assist.
