New Nissan X-Trail debuts at Frankfurt Motor Show

New Compact SUV

The new Nissan X-Trail has made its world debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The new X-Trail takes inspiration from Nissan's very successful crossovers the  Qashqai, Juke and the Murano  to create the ultimate, all weather, highly capable, modern family vehicle.

The new Nissan X-Trail is just as tough and accomplished as the previous generation model, but adds crossover style and efficiency, exciting design, innovative technology and exceptional comfort to set a new benchmark in the fiercely competitive C-SUV market. It boasts a very dynamic appearance and features a number of Nissan signature cues such as ‘boomerang' rear lights, structured headlights with LED daytime running lamps and the characteristic D-pillar shape. LED headlights for both high and low beams are standard on high grade models while 19-inch alloy wheels also give the new X-Trail an imposing look.

The interior is spacious and equally as impressive as the exterior with finishes in chrome, metallic and piano black. Options include a sophisticated cloth fabric covering plus a full leather offering with contrasting stitch accents. The spacious interior has theatre-style seating and the option of two extra seats to make room for seven inside. The middle row seats recline and slide while, where fitted and the third row folds forward to increase luggage space. The rear side doors open to almost 80 degrees which allows easy access for loading and unloading especially helpful if using a child safety seat, plus rear passengers benefit from extra knee room.

Latest Nissan Connect-in-car navigation

The new X-Trail will be the first model to benefit from the latest generation NissanConnect in-car navigation, information and entertainment system.  In its latest form NissanConnect has evolved to offer Smartphone connectivity, to keep owners connected to the outside world wherever their journey takes them. With access to a projected range of apps covering music, social networking, entertainment and travel through a large 7-inch colour touch screen, the new NissanConnect is the perfect fit for the new X-Trail, keeping you up to date on the move and with plenty of options.

The new Nissan X-Trail also adopts Nissan's advanced electronic four-wheel drive system, ALL MODE 4x4i. Controlled via a rotary switch on the centre console, it offers a choice between two-wheel drive, Auto mode or Lock offering permanent four-wheel drive. The X-Trail also benefits from Uphill Start Support and Advance Hill Descent Control.
