European premiere: Nissan X-Trail | Car magazine

How important a certain market is for a car manufacturer can be seen by the time it takes to present a certain model. A good example of this is the new Nissan X-Trail, which is called Rogue introduced in the United States back in June 2020but it wasn’t until July of this year that the equivalent X-Trail debuted at home in Japan.

Now it’s Europe’s turn to get this car, otherwise a mid-sized SUV. It has three rows of seats, optional all-wheel drive and an electrified drive with a three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine.

Looking so familiar inside and out, the X-Trail destined for the Old Continent is large enough to accommodate passengers up to 160 centimeters tall in the rearmost seats.

As for the second row seats, they have a 60:40 split configuration and can slide forward to make it easier for people to access the third row. With the seats in the third row folded down, the trunk capacity is 585 liters, i.e. 20 liters more than its predecessor.

The internal combustion engine we mentioned earlier doesn’t actually drive the wheels. Instead, the 1.5-liter gasoline is used to generate the necessary electricity to power the battery, which is then fed to the electric motor.

This method has allowed Nissan to say that the X-Trail actually behaves like an electric car, offering its full 330 Newton-metres of torque from virtually zero revs. The e-motor delivers 201 horsepower, enabling acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in eight seconds.

Nissan will sell the X-Trail in Europe with AWD by installing an electric motor on each axle for a combined output of 210 hp.

In this configuration, the SUV accelerates to 100 km/h in 7.0 seconds for the five-seater model and 7.2 seconds for the seven-seater model.

Many people don’t think about top speed when buying such a vehicle, but the single-engine configuration reaches a top speed of 170 km/h, while the twin-engine configuration allows for a top speed of 180 km/h.

The interior, by the way, is similar to the American version, with a 12.3-inch instrument display and a multimedia screen of the same size.

Laroseria will be available in ten colors, along with five two-tone shades. Already available to order in certain Euro-markets, the X-Trail starts with a price of €38,080 in Italy where it is offered in four trim levels. We believe that it will be cheaper here…
