Nissan has refreshed its X-Trail line-up with two new engines.
Both four-cylinder units, these 1.7-litre diesel and 1.3-litre petrol options now make up the backbone of the range in an effort to simplify its offerings.
Nissan claims that both offer ‘reduced CO2 emissions and improved fuel economy’, with Nissan Europe’s general manager for crossovers, Jean-Phillipe Roux, saying: “The Nissan X-Trail is now better than ever thanks to a completely new range of powertrains. No matter what your adventure is, there’s an X-Trail for you.”
Available with front- or four-wheel-drive, the 1.7-litre diesel develops 147bhp and 340Nm of torque and sends power via a six-speed manual transmission.
The Japanese manufacturer claims the diesel can achieve a claimed 43.5mpg and 137g/km CO2 in 2WD form, while the 4WD version can attain up to 42.2mpg and emit from 151g/km CO2.See Available X-Trail deals
The sole petrol option develops 157bhp and 270Nm of torque and is only offered with front-wheel-drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch (DCT) automatic transmission. With that powertrain, Nissan claims the X-Trail can return a claimed 34.9mpg and 145g/km CO2.
As the first DCT transmission fitted to the X-Trail, Nissan says that ‘the driver experience an immediate gear shift with no power interruptions’ and makes the SUV ‘more fun to drive’.
Prices for the revised Nissan X-Trail line-up start from £25,795, with orders now being taken.
