Nissan has overhauled the exterior and interior of the X-Trail, with the most noticeable change the front grille and bumper redesign.

The X-Trail’s new assortment of intelligent driving features also allows it to adapt to a multitude of driving situations.

Intelligent Blind Spot and Lane Intervention alerts the driver to other vehicles in the driver’s blind spot and displays a warning when the vehicle is straying from its lane.

Parking and driving in traffic is easier in the X-Trail thanks to its cross-traffic alert, collision warning, and around-view monitor with object detection.

The interior of the vehicle has also been upgraded, and includes a redesigned steering wheel, black leather upholstery, new gear lever, and improved centre console.
