The SUV was discontinued in the year 2014 last time following low sales volume. The car uses CMF (Common Module Family) architecture that has been developed along with Renault. The sleeker looks of the SUV has been inspired from the family of SUVs that include the Pathfinder, Juke, Murano, Qashqai, etc. There are no covers on the Nissan X-Trail images and the car would be a strict five seater. It would be benefitted from the FAME India scheme and offer significant benefits to the customers and offer about 400 litres of boot space. A full-wheel drive system and features like active ride height would impart the car its needed credentials making it worthy of SUV tag. Some other technologies that might be present in the car emergency braking system and intelligent park assist. Nissan X-Trail features what the company calls Nissan Connect would most likely be present and would offer latest generation of Navigation coupled with information and entertainment system with capability for smart phone apps mirroring on the screen and other features like voice control, email and SMS readout etc. Since the car would most likely be a CBU unit, Nissan X-Trail interiors and other design features would be significantly be the same. The V-motion grille is flanked by stylish looking headlamps that come integrated with DRLs. Apart from that “Hybrid” badges would be present on the left, right and tailgate door.

The Nissan X-Trail will get stylish look along with a rugged, bold and muscular appearance. The company engineers have emphasized on making it the most aerodynamic SUV with a drag coefficient as less as possible. As far as the front fascia is concerned, there is a signature radiator grille with V-shaped chrome strip flanked by sleek headlamps on either side. On the side profile there is flared wheel arches along with the neat looking alloy wheels. The body cladding runs across the length of the car give it a butch feel. The rear profile is highlighted with roof-mounted spoiler and a beautiful tail lamp assembly which intrudes nicely into the boot lid.Dimensionally, this SUV is expected to measure 4640mm in length, 1820mm in width, 1710mm in height along with wheelbase and ground clearance of 2705mm and 210 mm. Colour options might include seven shades: Burning Red, Desert Dusk, Tempest Blue, Brilliant Silver, Ivory Pearl, Gun Metallic and Diamond Black.

Nissan X-Trail Hybrid Interior

The premium upholstery that Nissan has always given its vehicles is present in the cabin of the X-trail. The colours in the cabin are tasteful, lending both airiness and also inducing the luxury feel. Seat cushioning is good while legroom and headroom are very good too. Seats would be adjusted electrically as well as they also get lumbar support. The centre console comes in piano-black finish which oozes of classiness. The rear row seats would be flipped forward to maximize boot space. In terms of comfort and convenience features, X-Trail would offer: automatic dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, push button engine start, cruise control, 5-inch colored LCD QVGA display, 6-speaker audio system with Aux, USB and iPod connectivity, NissanConnect, Bluetooth handsfree phone system are just to name the few.

Nissan X-Trail Hybrid Engine & Transmission

The SUV is sleeker and unlike its predecessor that was powered with a 2.0-litre diesel engine, this one would be powered by a 2.0 litre-petrol and would use hybrid technology too. The Nissan X-Trail specifications that would be offered in India would have a 2.0-litre petrol engine developing 179bhp of power along with electric motors that would be put to use via CVT transmission system and an electric all-wheel drive system. Nissan X-Trail reviews are out where the car has already been launched and the impressions have so far been impressive.

Nissan X-Trail Hybrid Mileage

The Nissan X-Trail mileage was 20.6kmpl when the car was launched in Japan. It is expected that the car with an optimised 2.0-litre engine working alongside regenerative braking system, aerodynamic under floor and low rolling resistance tyres would return anywhere between 20-21kmpl of mileage.

Nissan X-Trail Hybrid Braking and Safety

Stopping performance might come from all four ventilated discs and this large SUV is expected to come to a halt without any drama.When it comes to safety & security tech the new Nissan X-Trail has much and just in case you’re wondering exactly what it has, here’s list: rear view camera, anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), brake assist, active trace control (ATC), hill start assist, dual front impact SRS airbags, curtain airbags, rear door child locks, anti-theft system, vehicle immobilizer, etc.

Nissan X-Trail Hybrid Performance and Handling

Nissan X-Trail scores high on the ride and handling department. It is a brilliant SUV for city driving conditions and a highway cruiser too. Engine offers good linear performance and pulls cleanly from low revs. It has more than enough steam for both city and highway duties. The SUV offers brilliant handling and the steering weighs up nicely at speed. The driving position is high so visibility is great and you can bully your way through traffic. Finding a good driving position is easy as it comes with electrically adjustable seats. The high ground clearance makes it apt for our road conditions. Bad, broken roads and those usually high speed humps would not intimidate the X-Trail at all. It is expected to come with an Active ride Control mechanism which auto adjusts the suspension setup according to the terrain it’s driven on.

The car would be most certainly be launched at the Delhi AutoExpo 2016 that starts in February.
