Today at the Frankfurt Motor Show Nissan unveiled the new version of its X-Trail SUV, known as the Rogue in America, with new looks, new features, and improved capabilities. On the evidence of the success Nissan is enjoying with the Qashqai, Juke and Murano, it is fair to say they know a thing or two about making good crossovers.
So chances are the 2014 Nissan X-Trail is another fine product that although lacking a bit in terms of style and coolness, is pretty good at playing its intended role. Truly a global product, the X-Trail will be built at nine different manufacturing sites around the world for a vast array of markets.
Among the new characteristics of the 2014 X-trail that set is apart form the old model, we can mention the structured headlights with LED daytime running lamps and the characteristic D-pillar shape. Inside the cabin the new model comes with chrome, geometric metallic and piano black finishes, plus the availability of full leather upholstery with contrasting stitch accents and up to seven seat option.
Another big highlight of the 2014 Nissan X-Trail is the NissanConnect in-car navigation, information and entertainment system, featuring a large, 7-inch colour touch screen, offering a range of connectivity features.
As for the drivability, while Nissan is yet to announce the market-specific engines and transmissions, the 2014 X-Trail can be specified with all kinds of assist systems like Nissan’s advanced electronic four-wheel drive system, ALL MODE 4x4i, Active Ride Control and Active Engine Brake, Active Trace Control, Uphill Start Support and Advance Hill Descent Control.
