New Nissan X-Trail India launch

To have an estimated price of INR 32-35 lakhs.

With sales registering decline for 10th consecutive month in July 2015, Nissan India may finally have an all-new product to mitigate the damage. Autocar India reports that new Nissan X-Trail which was globally unveiled two years ago is finally coming to India in the festive season (by November).

Nissan entered India back in 2004 with the previous gen X-Trail which was then a niche product. Fast forward 10 years, its successor will cater to a promising premium SUV segment which is growing at an impressive rate.

The new gen SUV is the first product to be based on Renault-Nissan’s modular CMF platform and is essentially a 7-seat version of Qashqai. Donning Nissan’s latest global design theme, the crossover SUV has the stance, swag and equipment to evoke the interest of Indian customers.

New X-Trail will compete with Hyundai Santa Fe, Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, and Chevrolet Trailblazer.

Powertrain option for India is expected to comprise a 150 PS 2.0-litre dCi diesel motor borrowed from Renault, mated either to a 6-speed manual gearbox or a CVT. Top-end variant will have an electronic shift-on-the-fly 4WD system.

Expect the fully loaded trim to offer 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP, traction control, Hill Descent Control, powered front seats, touchscreen infotainment system with reverse parking camera, navigation system and many more.
