Nissan has introduced a new flagship 2.0-litre diesel to its X-Trail range in the UK. This enhances the current range that includes 1.6-litre diesel and a 2.0- and 2.5-litre petrol models.
The 2.0-litre diesel engine produces 130kW of power and 380Nm of torque and comes with a choice of 2WD and 4WD and with either a six-speed manual or an Xtronic CVT automatic gearbox.
“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“, commented Nissan Europe’s Senior VP for Sales and Marketing, Guillaume Cartier.
The 2.0-liter diesel X-trail comes with optional double stitched leather upholstery, LED interior lighting, power-opening panoramic roof, gloss black trim with metallic accents, quick-heat front seats, heated/cooled cup holders and 7-inch NissanConnect touchscreen infotainment system that includes Bluetooth connectivity and audio streaming, and DAB digital radio.
There’s also a range of Nissan accessories available, which include a rear dog guard mesh, chrome side mirror caps, door sill guards, external finishers for the front, rear and sides, and removable tow bar.
