For Nissan, the X-Trail, which was launched in 2014 and goes by the name Rogue in America, is a global bestseller that naturally needs to be nurtured. For this reason, those responsible not only gave the Nissan SUV flagship a visual refresh, but also new safety functions and comfort features as well as a noticeable upgrade in the interior. Find out what else there is to say about the new model year in our driving report.

Body/design

In the course of the model revision, we can, among other things, a redesigned front end, was also made here an adjustment to the radiator grille, this is now held in brand-typical V-shape.

The bumpers are now also redesigned and painted mainly in body color, which also rely on a glossy black finish.

The new edition of the X-Trail can also be recognized by the modified daytime running lights and fog lights. LED headlights are now offered as an adaptive lighting system, with dynamic cornering light function and improved high beams included in the package.

You really have to look closely to see the change in the integrated parking sensors, which are now completely flush with the surface of the bumper.

If we take a look at the rear view, new chrome accents on the rear bumper and a new LED light motif for the taillights stand out in direct comparison.

Six paint schemes were adopted from the previous model and four upbeat colors were added

Supplemented, in addition to Tinted Red, Blue and Dark Brown also includes the orange that we photographed. The refreshed look is rounded off by the new 18-inch wheels, but chic 19-inchers are also available.

These optical changes also bring slight differences in the external length of the X-Trail, this increases by 50 millimeters and comes to a total length of 4 inches.690 mm.

All other dimensions remain unchanged, including the proud wheelbase of 2.705 mm, which guarantees us princely space in the interior.

While the trunk of the five-seater Nissan X-Trail is now a lush 565 to 1.982 liters available, it is even with the 7-seater configuration 445 liters, which shrink with fully used seats, however, to 135 liters. In the third row of seats, for which an additional charge is made, we can also accommodate adults on short journeys. This already sets the Nissan SUV apart from some of its competitors, but take a seat in the second row and we can't help but be amazed.

If the vehicle offers us such a luxuriant leg liberty that Nissan secures itself here the class value, we believe immediately. Beyond that we can shift the seat row also still longitudinally. The backrests in the inclination adjust. In the top model, even these seats have a heating function.

The Nissan X-Trail was already flexible before, but now the Japanese are combining this functionality with exemplary comfort: the new sensor-controlled tailgate in the two highest equipment lines allows touch-free operation. You simply have to hold your foot centrally under the rear bumper and the trunk lid not only opens, it also closes again this way. But when we get in, we are presented with even more. Very effective changes. The steering wheel used up to now looks very old, especially in comparison to the new Volant. This brings us to a really decisive innovation. Flattened at the bottom, it appears altogether much more dynamic and proves to be more manageable and, from the N-Connecta trim, is even heated.

For an additional charge, Nissan now also offers a two-tone leather interior, the

brown seats with black applications provide a nice premium flair. Nissan would like to emphasize this quality impression with black shining air vents, partly new materials and the again arranged center armrest and the new leather cuff with the automatic selector lever additionally. Only the switches for the seat heating still seem antiquated, unfortunately.

While you can receive in the X-Trail immediately in all versions digital radio, Nissan puts in the top equipment Tekna a new Bose audio system on it.

The premium system includes eight speakers: two tweeters on the windshield, one woofer in each of the two front doors, one midrange speaker in each of the two rear doors, and two woofers in a 7.7-liter enclosure that finds its place in the trunk. Under the passenger seat is a Bose eight-channel digital amplifier with digital signal processing. Sounds already on paper like a great sound system, which was only confirmed during our ride.

The touchscreen layout of the NissanConnect navigation system has also undergone an overhaul, with a new app look that is not only reminiscent of a smartphone, but also of the Nissan X-Trail

also makes it easier to operate.

The overall impression of the Nissan X-Trail is matched by the pleasantly designed chassis, which emphasizes comfort even with the 19-inch wheels fitted. A sporty ride is not out of the question, but for us personally, the steering would be a bit too smooth.

And if even rough-and-tumble off-roaders are becoming more and more crossover models or. Sport Utility Vehicles "effeminate", scrambling and climbing can the X-Trail even today. With the all-round cameras, you can also find your way around rough terrain, or even in the urban jungle, where the X-Trail is used much more frequently.

The engine range remains untouched, accordingly we can deal with the topic briefly. In addition to the only gasoline engine in the range, the 1.6-liter with 120 kW/163 hp, which is only available with front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission, the two diesel engines, the 96 kW/130 hp 1.6-liter diesel and the large 2.0-liter dCi diesel engine with 130 kW/177 hp, are also available with all-wheel drive and the Xtronic as options.

And we would like to say something about this, it is not a classic automatic, but a continuously variable CVT transmission. And these push us personally yes with their annoying rubber band effect more than on. But it's precisely this that remains absent here during acceleration, which is why the X-Trail was able to convince us for the first time of this transmission alternative.

The X-Trail was already equipped with Intelligent Emergency Brake Assist, but now Nissan is adding pedestrian detection as standard and initiating automatic braking of the vehicle if necessary. Also new (in conjunction with manual transmission) is the Auto Hold function, which keeps your X-Trail in a stationary position for up to three minutes, even though you have long since taken your foot off the brake. By the way, the system doesn't stop at inclines and declines and even activates the parking brake automatically at the end.

The cross-traffic warning system (in the N-CONNECTA against surcharge, in the TEKNA serially) holds likewise entrance and reduces the danger of collisions when driving backwards. For example, when you pull out of a parking space or exit, the system detects an approaching vehicle and warns you both visually and acoustically.

Traffic Sign Recognition, Intelligent Drowsiness Detection, Intelligent Parking Assist, Intelligent Around View Monitor for 360-degree all-around visibility and Lane Keeping Assist are all standard on the Nissan X-Trail, according to the equipment or. The selected option likewise in petto.

Since MY18, the Japanese go even one step further towards autonomous driving with the so-called ProPILOT system. If you move the X-Trail then in single-lane highway traffic, in column traffic or in traffic jams, the system takes over both the control of steering, acceleration and the brakes.

Equipment/cost

The price list of the Nissan X-Trail starts with the only gasoline engine in the portfolio, the 1.6 DIG-T in the VISIA trim at 25.590 Euros, the latter is also available in the three other versions ACENTA, the newly introduced version N-CONNECTA and the top model TEKNA, prices range accordingly up to 37.200 euros.

Also front-wheel drive and equipped with the 6-speed manual, the 1.6 dCi can be had at prices from 28.040 to 39.650 euros can not only be combined with these four equipment lines, in contrast to the gasoline engine, it is also available in the three higher versions alternatively with the automatic transmission or the automatic transmission. Available in the manual version with all-wheel drive.

Whoever opts for our test car, the 177 hp 2.0 dCi, also has the choice of pairing the ALL-MODE 4x4i with the Xtronic automatic. And it is precisely this vehicle that, according to Nissan, takes the role of the volume model and so you have to pay for it in the version ACENTA 37.150 Euro, 40.900 euros for the N-CONNECTA or 45.500 euros for the absolute top model TEKNA pay.

While Nissan always charges an extra two thousand euros for all-wheel drive, the Xtronic is available at 1.900 euros to include. The manual switch becomes with the 2.0 dCi but exclusively delivered in the ALL-MODE 4x4i version.

The individual levels have even more to offer in the new model year, so the new multifunction steering wheel is already installed in the base model and, in addition to a Bluetooth and

USB/MP3 interface, you can now also access DAB+ and have the convenient auto hold function.

Based on this, the Acenta is not "only" equipped with darkened windows, 2-zone automatic climate control, high beam assistant, fog lights and automatic headlights, but also with automatically folding exterior mirrors, a lumbar support and a leather-wrapped Xtronic gear knob as standard.

Particularly appealing, however, is the N-CONNECTA, this equipment spoils you with full LEDs with adaptive lighting system, the NissanConnect navigation with the Intelligent Around View Monitor for the great 360-degree all-round view including. The shark antenna, the new sensor-controlled tailgate operation, 18-inch alloy wheels, heated seats and a heated steering wheel.

The highest level surpasses this appearance with both heated seats for the second row, a BOSE sound system, Safety-Shield with cross-traffic alert, 19-inch wheels, leather seats as well as a panoramic glass sunroof.

Many of these now serially contained components are however also for the two lower versions against surcharge to have. For the third row of seats Nissan requires however in all variants a surcharge, this differs depending upon the selected equipment, thus the seats 6 and 7 are available in the entrance version for 800 euro, in the Top equipment for 400 euro. For the two middle levels, however, the third row of seats is only available in combination with the panoramic glass sunroof for 1.450 Euro to choose from.
