The X-trail was the first car that Nissan used, to enter into the Indian automotive market in the year 2004. The company would be reportedly be launching the SUV again in February at the AutoExpo 2016, in Delhi. The old SUV came in through the CBU route and was discontinued in February 2014 following sales dip. The new X-Trail was first showcased at the Geneva motor show in 2013 and is based on the Common Module Family (CMF) platform architecture that has been jointly developed with the partner company, Renault. 

The SUV is now more sleek which in line with the design of other SUVs from the family that include the Juke, Qashqai, Pathfinder, Murano etc.. The major highlight would be the hybrid power train that would propel the car. Unlike the old car that used a 2.0 litre dci diesel motor, the new one would use a similar capacity petrol unit assisted by an electric motor, which is capable of producing a combined power output of 179bhp. The Hybrid car would also benefit from the FAME India government scheme under which the company can offer incentives to buyers of hybrid and electric vehicles. Although there are many mild-hybrid SUVs at present in the country, the X-trail would be the first car in its class to offer a full-fledged Hybrid technology when it makes the debut again in India.

There would be an electronic 4WD system present, in addition to the features like active ride height etc. The five seater car would make its way into India through a CBU route and is expected to be priced around 32 lakhs. The X-Trail would compete with cars like Captiva, Trailblazer etc. in India.
