The latest Nissan X-Trail offers a unique combination of rugged, eye-catching design, comfort, onboard convenience, and an effortless, confident drive.

Nissan draws on the well-established DNA from its previous generations to create this iteration, incorporating muscular design, flexible utility, and advanced all-wheel drive capabilities.

The X-Trail is available in both five and seven-seat configurations, providing a convenient option for outings with extended family or friends. Anyone interested in adventure will certainly appreciate the enhanced dynamic performance and advanced electrification technologies offered by this current generation of X-Trail.

The e-POWER version of the X-Trail is the most popular choice, but there is also a traditional option with a turbocharged 1.5-litre variable compression ratio engine. This unit generates 163 PS and 300 Nm of torque and is only available in a two-wheel drive configuration. Clout is transmitted through the Xtronic continuously variable transmission.

The engine adjusts its compression ratio for fuel efficiency during relaxed driving and light acceleration, and for more oomph when needed. This powertrain also features 12v Mild Hybrid technology, which provides torque assist, extended idle stop, quick restart, and coasting stop. These features improve fuel economy and reduce CO2 emissions.

During deceleration, energy is recovered and stored in a Lithium-ion battery. This stored energy can power the car’s systems when the engine is off, for example, when stopped at a red light. Additionally, the system can generate a torque boost of around 6 Nm during acceleration. This electrification means that the entire X-Trail lineup now includes some form of electric power.

The All-New X-Trail is also equipped with an all-wheel drive system designed to work with Nissan’s electrified powertrains called e-4ORCE. It ensures reliable traction and confident acceleration in all driving conditions, thanks to Nissan’s most advanced all-wheel control technology.

If you are wondering, the “e” in e-4ORCE stands for Nissan’s 100% electric motor drive system, while “4ORCE” refers to the vehicle’s physical power and energy, with “4” representing all-wheel control.
