After presenting the Nissan Rogue in the United States and the Nissan X-Trail in China, the Japanese brand finally presents the cousin of these two models, the European version of the Nissan X-Trail. It is that the old continent is no longer a priority for the manufacturer who prefers larger markets to sell this model and then the shortage of electronic chips has also played a role in this delay in the launch.
Be that as it may, it is finally here and it must be recognized that the Nissan X-Trail has a good presence. Compared to the Nissan Qashqai, the X-Trail stands out for developing its own style with two-level optics, a less fine and sporty front with robust lines. Estate version of the Qashqai, the X-Trail is twenty-two centimeters longer (4.65m instead of 4.43m) and features a shallower roofline, a more upright tailgate to maximize the interior space it can still accommodate to seven people, thanks to two additional seats. seating. At the rear, the lights are different, as is the shield. The new fourth-generation X-Trail is available in 9 solid body colors and five two-tone combinations.
The main difference from the Nissan Qashqai is under the hood. If the two models have the same technical base, that is, the CMF-C platform, which no longer have the right to the diesel engine, the X-Trail wants to be different by offering only the e-Power engine at launch (in some markets, a 163 hp micro-hybrid engine is offered). This e-Power technology is not 100% electric, but full-hybrid. An exclusive technology that develops up to 213 hp (190 hp for the Qashqai) and 330 Nm of torque and which consists of an electric motor that drives only the front wheels, while a gasoline engine recharges a small 1.8 compensation battery. kWh. This engine is a 163 hp three-cylinder 1.5 turbo with variable compression, that is, a mechanism that acts on the crankshaft varies the stroke of the pistons and the compression is 14/1 in economic mode (lower fuel consumption) and 8/1 when performance is needed most. In no case does the internal combustion engine drive the vehicle’s wheels, it is mainly used as a range extender.
Also available with this X-Trail is e-4ORCE technology which allows the X-trail to convert to four-wheel drive, with the rear wheels being driven by another electric motor. Note that it is this last configuration that will allow to have the X-Trail in 7 places and have a total power of 213 CV (330 Nm of torque at the front, 195 Nm at the rear), the model two- all-wheel drive with only 204 hp. With this model, as with the Qashqai, we are entitled to the e-Pedal Step. A device designed for city driving, the e-Pedal Step system allows you to accelerate and brake using only the accelerator. If the technology is high tech, only electric drives the wheels, it is not zero emission technology. The Nissan X-Trail effectively consumes gasoline and in the combined cycle (WLTP) it is a minimum of 5.8 l/100 km with the 204 hp block and two-wheel drive and 6.3 l/100 km in 4-wheel drive. four wheels and 213 hp. CO2 emissions fluctuate between 132 g/km and 152 g/km depending on the engine and finish.
If the exterior style is different from that of the Qashqai, on board the Nissan X-Trail it takes up the Qashqai dashboard with the multifunctional steering wheel, the 12.3-inch digital instrumentation, the new 12.3-inch central screen (appeared with the N-Connecta in the Qashqai and that will also be standard in the N-Connecta finish of the X-Trail). The center console, on the other hand, is different with a storage space below and a large storage compartment that opens in two parts between the seats. The equipment is very complete and the X-Trail has the right to ProPilot semi-autonomous driving, integrating the reading of panels, GPS information to adjust the speed. A system capable of accelerating and braking the vehicle in its lane on the motorway, driving the vehicle at a set speed in traffic jams and restarting automatically if traffic resumes. There will also be a side horn to help with maneuvers, Matrix-type lights, a head-up display with projection on the windshield, an airbag between the front seats, etc.
It is in the interior space where everything changes with a boot volume of 575 l (Qashqai: 455 l) in the five-seater version and 485 l in the seven-seater when the seats are folded down. There’s also more legroom for second-row passengers and third-row passengers as well. Second-row passengers are pampered with USB A and C sockets, a dedicated air conditioning control, sunshades on the rear doors. Access on board is easy, thanks to the rear doors that open to 85°, allowing access to the third row of the seven-seater version of the X-Trail. In its five-seater version, the trunk of the X-Trail will be entitled to a modular and reversible trunk floor (with one side covered with carpet and the other with washable plastic).
The Nissan X-Trail is already marketed in France (the first deliveries will take place in October). The range begins with the Acenta finish at a price of €42,700 for a 204 hp e-Power version. At the moment the main rivals of the Nissan X-Trail are the Peugeot 5008 and the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace, waiting for the seven-seater Renault “Grand Austral” to arrive.
