Avid mountain bikers in the Muldersdrift area of Gauteng may already be used to finding the adventorous Nissan X-TRAIL on their practice trails.
This particular Nissan X-TRAIL 1.6 dCi 4WD in LE specification is serving as crew and support vehicle for digital content producer and triathlete, Jason von Berg, and mountain biker Bongani Moyo, in their preparations for the Nissan Trialseeker mountain bike race.
Von Berg chose the new Nissan X-TRAIL for his #NissanMagic campaign, in which he is training with Moyo to participate in the Lionman race near Bela Bela on 11 July.
Created by Nissan to combine its national reach, wide range of cars, bakkies and SUVs and its network of supporters, #NissanMagic will give 12 different well-known South Africans the opportunity to make a lasting positive change in an area of their choice.
The campaign was kick-started in June by the “Good News Guy” Brent Lindeque, whose Random Acts of Kindness (#RAK) sparked an international movement. Lindeque chose a Nissan NV200 for his work in collecting winter warming donations for less fortunate people, while Von Berg opted for the X-TRAIL as support and crew vehicle during his and Bongani’s preparation for the Nissan Trailseeker race.
“I particularly like the EZ Flex system, which allows us to fold the seats away and store our gear in safety inside the X-TRAIL,” says Von Berg. “This will be particularly handy when the X-TRAIL does duty as our support vehicle in the Lionman race.”
In luxury LE-specification, Jason’s X-TRAIL offers a host of luxury features, including 18 inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity, a full touch screen infotainment system and leather upholstery.
