The 2017 Nissan X-Trail had arrived with its new 2.0 diesel 177 hp and the new conjunction between Xtronic automatic transmission and all-wheel drive All Mode 4x4i. Nissan has sold 10 million crossovers worldwide and expects the X-trail to do well in sales. But is the newly updated X-trail a must buy? Checkout our review here.

Interior, Exterior, Technology

The design of the 2017 Nissan X-Trail both exterior and interior, has not undergone major changes. Perhaps the most remarkable according to Express is the larger space on board for up to seven passengers and a trunk that cubes from 445 liters up to 1982 liters with the second and third-row seats folded.

Also available is the electric tailgate that opens and closes via a button in the trunk or the Nissan Intelligent Key or with a switch located next to the driver. It also includes a secret compartment to keep valuables out of sight from the outer compartment.

Some elements included in the new range of 2017 Nissan X-Trail are practicable and electrically operated sunroof, leather upholstery with double trim, front seats with fast heating and the new infotainment system 7-inch touch screen with bluetooth connectivity and audio playback.

The Japanese crossover will also feature the usual driver assistant systems, as the Shield Smart Protection Nissan, system monitoring tire pressure, the fatigue detector, traffic sign recognition, Hill Start Vision Camera Vision 360 degree motion detector and more.

2017 Nissan X-Trail Range Changes

Nissan launches its 2017 X-Trail with little aesthetic variation but with the inclusion of an interesting diesel engine of 2 liters and 177 hp, so that it will become the most powerful version of the X-Trail range. Also available for the first time a version with automatic transmission coupled to Xtronic AWD system 4x4i All Mode.

The AWD system All-Mode 4x4-i option which controls independently and depending on the needs of the power distribution between the front and rear wheels get the best traction. While the 4WD Lock mode that always acts in four-wheel drive can cope with the toughest conditions according to TheMotorReport

All versions of the 2017 Nissan X-Trail can now be ordered for around $30,000 but the first units arrive in dealerships on january 2017.
