Facelifted 2017 Nissan X-Trail unveiled


Nissan has given its popular X-Trail a mid-life facelift for 2017.

Seen here wearing the Rogue badge for the American market, the upgrade brings Nissan’s bold new V-Motion grille to the mid-size SUV, giving it a family resemblance to the recently unveiled 2017 GT-R.

Its headlights have also been revised to match the new grille, along with a more sculpted front bumper.


At the back, the rear combination lamps now get LED boomerang signature matched with a redesigned rear bumper, while new chrome-trim side door moldings and fresh alloys complete the freshened appearance.

Inside, the SUV gains a new D-shaped steering wheel, leather-booted sport-mode shifter, new door and instrument panel finishers, revised centre console and console lid and new seat fabric.


Advanced safety features have also found their way into the facelifted X-Trail, with intelligent cruise control, lane departure warning, lane departure prevention, forward emergency braking, blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert on offer.

Besides the cosmetic enhancements, the 2017 Nissan X-Trail also sees the introduction of a new hybrid powertrain option in certain markets.


The current model’s 106kW 2.0-litre and 126kW 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol and 1.6-litre turbo-diesel engines will be joined by a 131kW 2.0-litre four-cylinder hybrid in two- and all-wheel drive form.
