Price, specification and release date details for all-new Nissan X-Trail SUV are revealed

The all-new Nissan X-Trail is available to buy now and will arrive in UK dealerships on July 17. This announcement follows the price and specification details for the facelifted Juke revealed earlier today.

Prices start from £22,995 for the entry-level five-seat 2WD model in Visia trim – a reduction of £2,600 on the outgoing model – and rise to £31,695 top-spec seven-seater with all-wheel drive and 130bhp dCi diesel engine. 

Available with five seats or seven, customers can choose between two- and four-wheel drive on all but the most basic trim, with Nissan’s XTronic CVT gearbox offered on top-spec variants.

Four trim levels will be available at launch – Visia, Acenta, n-tec and Tekna – with standard features across the range including Bluetooth connectivity, 17-inch alloys, air conditioning, heated door mirrors, LED daytime running lights, follow-me-home lighting and an electric parking brake.

The third-generation X-Trail also gets a five-inch TFT colour display, which can rotate 12 graphic displays featuring average and actual speeds, audio content, traffic sign recognition, as well as eco driving advice, turn-by-turn sat-nav instructions and, in 4WD models, torque distribution settings.

For £495, a Smart Vision Pack of driver and safety aids can be added to the entry-level Visia (£22,995 – £23,695), adding High Beam Assist, lane departure warning technology, traffic sign recognition, emergency braking tech, automatic lights and front and rear parking sensors.

This pack is also available on the Acenta trim, costing slightly less at £450. You get all the same kit, but at a reduced price because these models already feature parking sensors and automatic lights as standard.

Customers selecting Acenta specification (£24,795 – £27,195) also get privacy glass, dual zone climate control, electric folding mirrors, automatic wipers, and a power sunroof.

Choosing n-tec (£27,295 – £29,695) gets you 19-inch alloys, i-Key locking, push-button ignition DAB radio, roof rails and a power-operated bootlid. The latest NissanConnect system with smartphone integration and built-in apps is also fitted, plus a new 360-degree view camera system.

As in the new Juke, Tekna trim (£29,295 – £31,695) tops the range, offering customers heated leather seats, an electric driver’s seat with added support, Bi-LED headlights and additional safety features like Driver Attention Alert and a blind spot warning system. Parking should be easier too, as the flagship X-Trail features Nissan’s automatic Park Assist function.

Power across the entire line-up comes from a 1.6-litre dCi diesel, delivering 129bhp and 320Nm of torque, a reduction of 42bhp and 41Nm on the outgoing model’s 2.0-litre diesel. The trade off is improved efficiency, with Nissan claiming CO2 emissions as low as 129g/km and up to 57.6mpg.

The lack of name change is surprising, it seems like a completely different car from the current X-trail. I wonder why Nissan have chosen to keep the off-roader name rather than going for something more Qashquai-like.

Another dull design from Nissan.

I should think it's because people are familiar with the X-Trail name and it looks more X-Trail than Qashquai. Simples.

`Nissan have changed the X-Trail's market position - From that of a tough SUV with ability to take on the likes of the Freelander.

The new model is obviously less able off-road than the previous model & the lower power will significantly reduce the appeal across a wider segment of prospective purchasers.

Nissan have very broad experience of developing SUV type vehicles - but in my opinion, the new X-Trail has dived into a smaller niche - and one in which I personally have little interest.

I hope it is successful for them.

It looks exactly like the QashQai from where I'm sitting!

At least it doesn't look as though it's about to fall over (like its top-heavy predecessor). But now like everything else it's chronically overstyled and presumably Saab are too weak to ask for their grille back!

Are you serious? I know design is very subjective but you are definitely in the minority there.
If you want dull, look at a VW Tiguan or BMW X3!

Only in so much as an A4 looks exactly like an A6 but the size is different the curves are different and window sizes are different, so it's not a Qashquai which is cross over and X-Trail is full SUV.

"Power across the entire line-up comes from a 1.6-litre dCi diesel, delivering 129bhp and 320Nm of torque, a reduction of 42bhp and 41Nm on the outgoing model’s 2.0-litre diesel"
- Well that's a real improvement! Impressive Nissan, well done!

It was a 4x4, but the new one with only 129 horsepower and, presumably, a large number of 2WD only sales is hardly going to be 'full' 4x4 that the outgoing one is.

I'd be surprised if they've even managed to get the towing capacity over 2 tons with that engine (current: 2.2 tons).

Not that I'm criticing Nissan's choice of direction, I'm sure the Qashquai is a massively better seller than the Pathfinder so it makes sense to have a bigger Qashquai rather than a smaller pathfinder.

Maybe they're keeping their options open to appeal to current X-trail owners with bigger engines and more distinctive body panels if they can't convince the Quashquai demographic.

It probably is an improvement in areas like fuel efficiency and road tax, which may be more important than power and torque to the customers Nissan are trying to appeal to.

Me thinks you are the one who needs educating in car design, the X3 is anything but dull, being the best meduim size SUV on the market in rugged design, excellent interior, supurb road holding both on and off road, ultra reliable and cheap to run.

Have to agree here with MrKash - once this is loaded up with a family of 5, luggage ( or dogs) it will struggle on faster roads. My Fathers Qashqai +2 1.5 DCi has trouble getting up to speed on the motorway.

Don't let BMW hear you call it rugged design.

Look Tory boy, the X3 is most definitely dull. Period.

It's also a BMW which in some parts of the country means you don't get let out of junctions ;-)
