The new Nissan X-Trail is shown here. It is the largest Nissan SUV available in the United Kingdom and competes with other high-riding seven-seat family cars like the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento.

The intelligent new hybrid system distinguishes the 2018 Nissan X-Trail from the competition. Continue reading for more details.

Redesigned Nissan X-Trail

The 2018 Nissan X-Trail appears much more contemporary than its predecessor. It employs the same design elements as the smaller Qashqai and Juke, consisting of straight lines, blocky detailing, and faceted edges.

The black-painted windscreen surround is intended to make the roof appear to float above the rest of the vehicle when viewed from the side. Nissan, who do you think you're fooling? The black wheel arches and contrasting side skirts successfully exaggerate the vehicle's ground clearance.

Unfortunately, the rear of the 2018 X-Trail is not as striking as the front, but you can say that about most family SUVs today...

All-new Nissan X-Trail cabin

The interior of the new X-Trail is fully redesigned. The minimalist dashboard features a 12.3-inch digital driver's display in place of conventional analogue dials, as well as a central touchscreen running Nissan's most recent infotainment software.

There are still physical shortcut buttons for several critical tasks, and Nissan has reduced the quantity of voice-command capabilities so that adjusting the climate control will not disturb any dozing passengers.

The 2017 X-Trail comes standard with two rows of seats (for a total of five), but you can spend extra to add a third row in the far back. If you need to transport really big stuff, you may also fold these two rear rows flat.

New X-Trail Nissan engines and hybrid technology

The 2019 Nissan X-trail is available with a selection of three engines. The range begins with a 163-hp, 1.5-liter gasoline engine. This is linked with a moderate hybrid system and, according to Nissan, should return approximately 39mpg.

In addition, there is an e-POWER hybrid system identical to that of the most recent Nissan Qashqai.

This technology in the new X-Trail uses a 204hp electric motor to drive the wheels. However, you do not need to plug the vehicle in to charge its batteries. This X-Trail is equipped with a 1.5-liter gasoline engine that serves as a generator to continuously charge the batteries. They will remain charged so long as there is gasoline in the fuel tank.

There is also a more powerful four-wheel-drive vehicle with two electric motors producing 213 horsepower. According to Nissan, this returns approximately 43gmpg, whereas the lighter, more fuel-efficient two-wheel-drive vehicles can achieve 47mpg.

New Nissan X-Trail cost and launch date

You may now place an order for a new Nissan X-Trail. Five-seat two-wheel-drive vehicles with 150 horsepower and a mild-hybrid system start at £32,030.

Nissan's new 'e-POWER' two-wheel-drive hybrid system (where the engine charges the car's batteries but does not directly drive the wheels) costs an additional £2,435, while four-wheel versions cost an additional £2,200.

The upgrade from a five-seat to a seven-seat Nissan X-Trail costs an additional £1,000. The initial Nissan X-Trail deliveries will commence in October of this year.
