Nissan presented the fourth generation of X-Trail, the XXL size SUV with Japanese DNA and premium character that in over 20 years of history has been sold in about 7 million units worldwide. Like Qashqai, it was built on the Alliance’s CMF-C platform.
Externally, the X-Trail features typical Nissan design elements: floating roof, V-Motion grille and front embellished with light clusters that follow the line of the bonnet. Sophisticated headlights can now adapt the shape of the light beam to suit road conditions and the presence of other users. On the side you can see the generous wheel arches that convey strength, while the moldings that draw a line between the front and rear wheel arches help to give dynamism. At the rear, enveloping double lights ensure a wide opening of the boot.
Inside the passenger compartment you immediately notice the superior quality of the materials and finishes. Available to the driver: NissanConnect 12 “HD display, 3 with access to all navigation, entertainment and vehicle setup functions compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 10”, 8 “Head-Up Display, the largest of the category, and Home-to-Car functions compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. The advanced infotainment system is new, offering a wide range of connected services, including integration with smartphones, In-Car WiFi to connect up to seven devices, and the NissanConnect Services app to manage and monitor the remote vehicle. The mode selector, e-shifter, is placed in the central tunnel together with two cup holders, a slot for wireless charging for 15w smartphones and a large storage compartment, able to accommodate a bag or tablet. Also in the tunnel, on the rear, there are the controls dedicated to the air conditioning system and a double USB port of type A and C for use by passengers on the sofa. The second row of seats is divided into a 40:20:40 configuration, with a central door for carrying long items.
The rear bench seat can slide forward to maximize boot space and allow easy access to the third row in the seven-seat configuration (the only seven-seat electrified SUV on the market). For luggage, the X-Trail is “best in class” with 585 liters, a good 20 liters more than the previous generation. Active safety guaranteed by the latest generation of the Pro Pilot Assist system with Navi-link, which assists the driver in an increasing number of situations. Nissan’s Intelligent Forward Emergency Braking with predictive function features advanced radar technology: it reads the road past the car in front and detects if a vehicle suddenly brakes. Under the hood the innovative e-Power engine. Depending on whether the car has two or four-wheel drive (e-4orce system), the car has one or two electric propulsion motors. In the 2-wheel drive version, the power unit consists of an electric motor on the front of 204 Hp (150 kW) and 330 Nm of torque for propulsion. For both versions a 1.5-liter variable compression three-cylinder turbo petrol engine for the production of electricity. The energy produced by the heat engine goes to the inverter and from this can be transmitted to the battery, the electric motor or both. Under no circumstances is the thermal power transmitted directly to the wheels. With the e-4ORCE all-wheel drive, the two electric motors, one for each axle, are managed by a system that regulates the driving force and braking action on the individual wheels. Power is 213 Hp, with 136 Hp rear engine and 204 Hp front. 7 “to go from 0 to 100km / h. For a relaxing drive, Nissan has decided to introduce the e-Pedal Step, the technology already present on other Nissan electrified models that allows you to accelerate and slow down the car using only the pedal of the accelerator.
10 colors available for the bodywork and five two-tone combinations, for a total of 15 variants. Available in 4 trim levels, X-Trai can already be ordered from dealerships. Prices starting from 38,080 euros.
