X-Trail (Nissan)

Apr 12, 2019

On April 11, Nissan informed that new powertrain range unveiled for Nissan’s popular X-Trail crossover for the European market.
X-Trail customers can choose from two all-new engines – one petrol, one diesel – linked to two transmissions – a six-speed manual, or an all-new seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) automatic.
With the option of two-wheel-drive for those who rarely venture off-road and four-wheel drive for those who need additional traction, the upgraded Nissan X-Trail is the perfect SUV for active families who love the outdoors.
The new diesel engine is a 1.7-litre dCi 150 PS unit. It’s available in 2WD and 4WD, and with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The new petrol engine is a 1.3-litre DIG-T 160 PS unit, available in 2WD and with a Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). New to the X-Trail line-up, the DCT provides customers with a sporty and more direct dynamic experience, improved standing-start performance and smoother power delivery.
