First photos for Nissan X-Trail Facelift: the SUV from Japan, literally devoured by the internal competition in sales of the Qashqai, is renewed in an attempt to secure survival in the future. The debut of the facelift is planned for the Paris Motor Show, which opens on September 30th.
The novelty consists in the aesthetic re-design of the grille and bumper fascias, the introduction of LED lights, improvement of the interior quality, 17″ wheels, a new look and color palette body enriched with some new entries. In short, many small details that do not change the general approach of the car.
Far more important is the arrival of a front-wheel drive variant, combined with an 2.0 petrol engine, which has been enhanced for the occasion. It appears that the 2.0 dCi in its strongest decline was revised to meet the Euro 6 parameters. As an optional feature is the six-speed automatic transmission.
Nissan has given the SUV of a new device to help off-road driving, the Advanced Hill Descent Control. The new device, available only on four-wheel drive versions, was equipped with a control rate of descent, to adjust this parameter to a value between 4 km/h and 15 km/h. Among other innovations are reported refrigeration and heating the glove compartment and the rear center headrest.
