And because families come in all shapes and sizes, the new X-Trail has the option of seven seats, ensuring that no one misses out on the fun.

The new Nissan X-Trail is a luxurious, state-of-the-art crossover that fits your style of life. Its top-quality engineering and latest technology ensures that nothing stands in your way when you want to get off the beaten track and blaze new trails for others to follow.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility

Technology should never be intrusive. When it’s designed properly, it must simply function in the background and step in only when you need it to. You should never feel like getting into your car is an effort and this is why NIM takes the approach of developing smart technology that makes a difference without you even knowing about it.

Among the stand-out features on the new X-Trail are these NIM highlights:

  • Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention– alerts the driver to the presence of vehicles in blind spots diagonally behind the car.
  • Intelligent Lane Intervention– alerts the driver when it detects that the X-Trail is straying from its lane.
  • Intelligent Cross Traffic Alert – when backing out of a parking space, this feature can detect and warn the driver of vehicles that are approaching behind the X-Trail.
  • Intelligent Emergency Braking – uses radar technology to keep an eye on your speed and proximity to the vehicle in front of you, and will alert the driver before engaging the brakes.
  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning – helps alert drivers of an impending collision with a slower moving or stationary car.
  • Intelligent Auto Headlights – automatically changes between high and low beams when it detects oncoming vehicles at night.
  • Intelligent Around View Monitor with moving object detection – a support technology that assists drivers to park more easily by providing a better understanding of the vehicle’s surroundings.

Interior upgrades

If you’re looking for a capable, tried-and-trusted, comfortable crossover to suit your active lifestyle, look no further. The new Nissan X-Trail doesn’t compromise on what you expect from this much-loved SUV: Cutting edge technology, modern design, superb safety, phenomenal 4x4 capabilities, premium features and space for the whole family.

The interior features an upmarket design with new styling for the steering, the door finishes, the console wrap and the seat fabric has been upgraded to a plush material.

The black leather trim has also been enhanced and now features white stitching while the steering wheel is D-shaped. The centre console and the console lid have also been improved.

Exterior enhancements

The new X-Trail’s dynamic styling is echoed throughout this always-ready-for-adventure SUV. There are beautiful new 17- and 19-inch alloys to choose from together with new exterior colours.

A new “V-Motion” grille and bumper, revised headlights and signature day-time running lights.

The front also features integrated fog lamps while the rear has LED boomerang taillights and the rear bumper has been harmonised with the stunning new face of the X-Trail.

A crossover for everyone

And, of course, the X-Trail has made its mark over the years with discerning customers looking for a large, premium crossover that offers comfort, versatility and smart technology while also being great value for money.

If you’re in the market for the ultimate first-class crossover that oozes executive charm while conquering anything in its path, Nissan has that segment covered too with the brilliant new Patrol being launched soon.
