Nissan has introduced Nissan Connect to its local X-Trail range. See details and pricing below…
The Nissan X-Trail has been updated in South Africa and customers will be happy to know that Nissan Connect infotainment is now available across the range, bringing Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality to the 7-inch touchscreen display.
More than this, Nissan has also beefed up the standard specification of the X-Trail which is now offered in either base Visia trim, mid-spec Acenta and the range-topping Tekna trim. Acenta and Tekna X-Trail derivatives are now fitted with LED headlights, reverse camera, push start button and keyless entry with an electronic tailgate with sensor control.
The top-spec X-Trail Tekna derivatives can also be equipped with Nissan Intelligent Mobility features such as blind-spot alert, lane intervention, cross-traffic alert, emergency braking, forward collision warning, auto headlights and a 360-degree surround-view monitor.
Engines for the Nissan X-Trail
The X-Trail range has been updated in South Africa with improved connectivity across the range.
The base 7-seater X-Trail Visia is powered by a naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre petrol engine with 106 kW and 200 Nm and mated with a 6-speed manual transmission.
The mid-spec X-Trail Acenta (in either 5- or 7-seater guise) powers up with a larger 2.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine with 126 kW and 233 Nm of torque and is mated with a CVT driving all-four wheels. This engine is also used for the range-topping X-Trail Tekna.
For buyers looking for a diesel engine, the X-Trail can be had with a 1.6-litre turbodiesel engine with 96 kW and 320 Nm, but this engine is only paired with a 6-speed manual transmission.
