New Nissan X-Trail arrives in Ireland

Wednesday, 29th November, 2017 5:23pm

The Nissan X-Trail is the world’s best-selling SUV and is now available with a range of upgrades which further enhance its quality and refinement.

The changes include a distinctive and robust redesign of the exterior, a higher-quality interior with desirable new features, additional practicality for owners and innovative new technologies to make life on the road even safer.

The grade structure on the X-Trail has evolved with the launch of SV Premium for the first time, offering additional choice, value and desirable features.

For drivers seeking new levels of flexibility and greater freedom when they want it, the new Nissan X-Trail will be available with ProPILOT autonomous drive technology in 2018.

The enhancements to X-Trail are based on consumer insight and customer feedback, and are designed to reinforce the X-Trail’s position as the perfect car for family adventures.

Including the USA, where the car is badged Rogue, more than 3.7 million have been sold since the first Nissan X-Trail was launched in 2000.

That includes almost half a million cars in Europe, where the X-Trail remains hugely popular. Approximately 115,000 units have been sold in Europe since the all-new third-generation model was launched in 2014, and demand has grown significantly year on year; sales doubled from 2014 to 2015, and the total rose again by another 40 per cent the following year.

The cabin of the new Nissan X-Trail boasts a raft of upgrades to enhance the existing high-quality feel. Entering the car, the striking new steering wheel is the first thing drivers will notice.

It echoes the design of Nissan’s newest models globally and is standard across the X-Trail range. Now D-shaped, the horizontal base means easier entry and exit for the driver, as well as providing a more sporty look and feel.

Whether customers select the five or seven-seat version of the X-Trail, the leather upholstery that’s standard on SVE grade features enhanced quilting to create more defined seat contours.

Heated seats for both front and rear occupants (not third row) are new, and standard on SVE grade. For customers seeking something different, a new tan leather interior is available as an optional extra on SVE.

Other cabin upgrades add to the higher-quality ambience and increased refinement of the new X-Trail. A new leather knee pad on both sides of the centre console has been added, while the area above the glovebox has been given a more contemporary finish. The air vents now feature a new gloss black surface.

The two highest grades of X-Trail have previously come with an electric tailgate as standard. This feature has been enhanced on new X-Trail with the additional of hands-free functionality.

Customers with shopping bags or holding young children close by can now kick their foot under the centre of the car’s rear bumper to automatically activate the opening mechanism.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility is the name for the brand’s advanced technologies which make its cars more desirable by redefining how they are driven, powered and integrated into society. The goal is to make Nissan drivers feel more confident, excited and connected, while also enhancing road safety.

In 2018, Nissan will introduce ProPilot on the new X-Trail. It’s the first stage on the brand’s journey to autonomous driving, giving drivers more freedom by allowing them to automate the mundane elements of their motoring life.

ProPilot will control the steering, acceleration and braking in a single lane on highways during heavy traffic congestion and high-speed cruising. It is based on three technologies – lane keep assist (LKA), intelligent cruise control (ICC) and traffic jam pilot (TJP).

Intuitive to use, ProPilot will be activated via a button on the X-Trail’s steering wheel. Information will be displayed in the combimeter between the instrument dials. Further details on ProPilot will be given nearer to its launch.
