THE NEW NISSAN X-TRAIL | Shelbourne Motors

What to expect from the new Nissan X-Trail ​

The New Nissan X-Trail has had an upgrade and offers a range of enhanced features, quality design and additional practicality.

Drivers can benefit from new levels of flexibility and freedom in the New X-Trail. Enhancements have been made based on customer feedback on consumer insight the new X-Trail is the perfect car for family adventures. ​​

Exterior Design

The new Nissan X-Trail is known for its muscular style and ‘stand-out’ characteristics. The new design offers a wider appearance, the ‘V-motion’ grille is wider than previous models and the body colour shines with the back benefiting from a smart new gloss black finish.

The new X-Trail features new headlamp clusters and Nissan’s signature ‘boomerang’ daytime running lights. The fog lights are now cleverly integrated into the front bumper and are now a rectangular shape. Also revised are the front parking sensors. Previously they were integrated into the bumper but did not sit completely flush to the surface. Now they are flush. The difference is small but significant, perfectly illustrating the car’s higher-quality finish and Nissan’s attention to detail.

The upgrades have resulted in a very slight change to the overall length of the car – an increase of 50mm means it’s now 4,690mm from bumper to bumper. There is no change to the new X-Trail’s width (1,830mm), height (1,710mm on Visia and Acenta, 1,740mm on N-Connecta and Tekna) or wheelbase (2,705mm). The exterior changes have not affected the new X-Trail’s aerodynamic performance, with a Cd rating of 0.32.

Six of the eight existing exterior colours have been carried over, with four vibrant new additional shades added – Monarch Orange, Palatial Ruby, Sapphire Blue and Picador Brown.

Interior Design

The the Nissan X-Trail offers an enhanced interior quality with a striking new D-shaped steering wheel for added driving comfort and a sporty look and feel. The four-way controllers for the combimeter display and cruise control are new, and offer a more intuitive drive with reduced ‘eyes off the road’ time. A new premium style comes from the satin silver detailing on the central spoke which echoes the shape of the car’s iconic ‘V-motion’ front grille. A new feature is integrated heating, which is standard on Tekna grade.

Heated seats for both front and rear occupants (not third row) are new, and standard on Tekna grade. For customers seeking something different, a new Premium Tan and black two-tone leather interior is available as an optional extra on Tekna. The new X-Trail has a redesigned central armrest storage area and models with the XTronic automatic transmission, the gear selector has been restyled and features a new leather-style gaiter.

The interior practicality of the new X-Trail makes it perfect for adventurous families.

With exceptional space and comfort, including best-in-class knee room in the second row seats and clever storage solutions and features, including sliding / reclining functionality of the second row seats.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility

Nissan Intelligent Mobility offers advanced technologies so that drivers can feel safer, confident, excited and more connected when driving their Nissan vehicle. Nissan will introduce ProPILOT in the new X-Trail, a first step towards autonomous driving which is an exciting feature for many drivers

Rear Cross Traffic Alert is a new feature in the X-Trail alongside the numerous safety features people have come to love in the X-Trail.

New to the X-Trail is a technology called Stand Still Assist (SSA), which supplements Hill Start Assist on cars with a manual transmission. SSA holds the car in a stationary position for up to three minutes, after which time the parking brake is automatically activated. This works on inclines, declines and on the flat, allowing the driver to take their foot off the brake. Ultimately improving safety, boosting driver confidence and reducing fatigue.

Premium BOSE Audio

Supplied by BOSE, Nissan’s premium audio partner, it features two 25mm tweeters at the base of the windscreen, a 165mm woofer in each front door and a 130mm mid-range speaker in each rear door. Two 115mm woofers are housed in a 7.7-litre custom-engineered enclosure mounted in the spare wheel well.

DAB digital radio is now a standard feature and the addition of a new 'Shark fin' roof antenna for improved reception.
