Nissan has recently announced that the 2.0 Diesel will complete the X-Trail lineup in the United Kingdom, the variant coming with a retailed price of £29,095 and featuring plethora of safety gizmos and gadgetries inside, and worthy performance under the hood.
Speaking about safety features, the newly-introduced 2017 X-Trail 2.0 Diesel is had with the Nissan`s Safety Shield package, comprising Intelligent Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, Driver Attention Alert, Traffic Sign Recognition and High Beam Assist.
While at the exterior the model remains unchanged, besides the extra package available – with chrome side mirror caps, rear dog guard, door sill guards, removable tow bar – inside things are improved, thanks to the new stitched leather upholstery and gloss black trim with metallic accents, adding the company`s new seven-inch NissanConnect touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity, audio streaming or DAB digital radio.
Other features also refer to LED interior lighting, heated/cooled cup holders, power-opening panoramic roof and much more. In the engine department, the 2017 Nissan X-Trail 2.0 Diesel comes with an impressive diesel engine built to satisfy the needs of its fancy customers.
Guillaume Cartier, Senior VP for Sales and Marketing of Nissan in Europe also explains the new engine, stating that “the new flagship Nissan X-Trail is a crossover that`s focused on delivering what consumers need. Offering 4WD linked to an automatic transmission for the first time, it`s a significant enhancement to the already strong X-Trail range. It`s also a compelling upgrade to our already successful 1.6-litre diesel model.”
We are looking here at a 2.0-liter diesel mill capable of delivering 175 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque, available with a 2WD and a 4WD, and paired to a six-speed manual or an Xtronic CVT automatic transmission.
