Today, the Nissan X-Trail SUV debuted in the European version. It is worth noting that earlier this car was already presented in a modification for the USA, Japan, and China.
The various versions differ in design only in small details: the shape of the 4.66-meter body remains unchanged, as does the design of the 2-story headlights or elongated horizontal lights. By the way, the car is built on the CMF-C platform, the wheelbase is 2,705 meters.
However, different versions of the car differ significantly in technology. What does the European version of the Nissan X-Trail offer? Only one engine is gasoline 3-cylinder 1.5-liter “turbo” with a variable compression ratio. However, it was possible to create three versions from one engine. The basic modification provides a mild hybrid application (12-volt starter-generator), power 163 hp. and a torque of 300 Nm, front-wheel drive, and Xtronic continuously variable transmission. The maximum speed is 200 km/h, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 9.6 seconds, fuel consumption is 7.1-7.4 liters per 100 km.
The e-POWER hybrid is able to offer more power: a 150 kW (204 hp) and 330 Nm electric motor turns the front wheels, while the gasoline engine is used only as a generator to generate electricity. There is also an e-4ORCE option: everything is similar to e-POWER, but one more electric motor (94 kW) is added to turn the rear wheels. The total power of such a system already reaches 213 “horses”, and acceleration from 0-100 km/h takes 7-7.2 seconds. The maximum speed of hybrids is 170-180 km/h, and fuel consumption is 5.8-6.5 liters per 100 km (data varies depending on the type of drive and the number of seats in the cabin). There is also an e-Pedal control system, which resembles the control of an electric car.
What else can surprise the new Nissan X-Trail? For example, modern interior design, large color 12.3-inch displays, data projection system on the glass. And also – the availability of a 5- or 7-seater version. In fact, a 7-seater version existed in the predecessor, but it was offered only in certain markets. Now it looks set to go global.
The third row of seats is intended for people up to 160 cm tall – this is noted by the manufacturer himself. As well as the fact that the trunk compartment has been increased by 20 liters: now 585 liters for the usual 5-seater interior configuration. And movable shelves allow you to get 16 variants of the trunk.
It is unlikely that we will be able to get the new Nissan X-Trail before the end of this year, but we are waiting for the next one.
