The Nissan X-TRAIL is one of the most competitive compact SUVs available today. In terms of performance versus emissions, it could be considered the class leader. Extensive upgrades will help maintain its position in the SUV segment as one of the few truly versatile and agile four-wheel drive vehicles on sale in the UK.

The interior of the Nissan X-TRAIL has improved in comfort and quality, materials have been updated and thicker soft touch materials have been chosen for the cloth seats. Rear occupant comfort has been improved thanks to redesigned front seats.

Exterior updates to the Nissan X-TRAIL have been made to the frontal aspect with a complete redesigned grille, headlights and bumper assembly. The bumper is angled outwards which suggests a wider track and more solid stance. The lights on the Nissan X-TRAIL are more technical in appearance with either Xenon or halogen projectors (depending on grade) for the main lights and halogen parabole for the high beam. At the rear, the Nissan X-TRAIL’S distinctive vertical lights have been updated to incorporate LED light technology for the running lights and braking.

The Nissan X-TRAIL is one of the few genuine compact SUVs which can just as comfortably tackle the demands of everyday family life, as it can a muddy, slippery track when it transports a family for a weekend of adventure.
