The 5 things you need to know about the 2017 Nissan X-Trail
What are the key changes on the inside and outside of the revised X-Trail?
The new X-Trail gets a new-look front-end running Nissan’s family V-Motion grille and new headlights with a new rear bumper and tail-light design. Other changes over the old model, include body-colour, heated wing mirrors with integrated turn signals and a cost-optional powered panoramic roof. Standard on top-spec Ti and TL variants is a kick-sensor to open the powered tailgate.
On the inside, the refreshed X-Trail offers a flat-bottomed and heated steering wheel and leather wrapped transmission boot and automatic high-beam on the two top-spec variants (Ti and TL).
The 2017 X-Trail is offered with five seats as standard and three-row/seven-passenger seating cost-optionally available in certain model grades. To maximise cargo space, Nissan’s EZ Flex Seating System allows the rear seats to slide forward or backwards or fold down. The front passenger seat folds rearwards, allowing transport of long items such as an 8-foot ladder, Nissan claims, when combined with the flat folding 40:20:40-split second-row seat.
Standard interior features include Nissan’s Advanced Drive-Assist Display (a 5.0-inch dashboard-mounted colour display located between the speedometer and tachometer); 6-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with auxiliary audio input jack; USB connection port for iPod interface and other compatible devices; reversing camera; Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System and audio streaming; (compatible smartphone required). Also available are dual-zone automatic climate control (ST-L, Ti & TL model grades) and a Bose audio system with eight speakers (Ti & TL model grades).
