• All-new 1.7-litre diesel and 1.3-litre petrol engines now on sale in Nissan X-Trail crossover SUV

, 2019) – Family adventures are now better than ever thanks to a complete powertrain upgrade in the Nissan X-Trail crossover SUV.
It means getting away to the great outdoors is more efficient, with reduced CO2
emissions and improved fuel economy across the revised range.
X-Trail customers can choose from two all-new engines – one petrol, one diesel – linked to two transmissions – a six-speed manual, or an all-new seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) automatic.
With the option of two-wheel-drive for those who rarely venture off-road and four-wheel drive for those who need additional traction, the upgraded Nissan X-Trail is the perfect SUV for active families who love the outdoors.
Jean-Philippe Roux, general manager, crossovers, Nissan Europe, commented: 'The Nissan X-Trail is now better than ever thanks to a completely new range of powertrains. No matter what your adventure is, there's an X-Trail for you.'
The new diesel engine is a 1.7-litre dCi 150 PS unit. It's available in 2WD and 4WD, and with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The new petrol engine is a 1.3-litre DIG-T 160 PS unit, available in 2WD and with a Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). New to the X-Trail line-up, the DCT provides customers with a sporty and more direct dynamic experience, improved standing-start performance and smoother power delivery.
The DCT features electrical on-demand cooling and electro-mechanic gear actuation to improve efficiency. It provides clear benefits to customers – both private and fleet – as the driver experiences an immediate gear shift with no power interruptions. The absence of a torque converter creates a more direct driving feeling, making it more fun to drive.
All new X-Trail powertrains meet the latest Euro6d-Temp emissions standard. Figures for five-seat versions are detailed in the table below:
NEDC-BT CO2 emissions (g/km)||
fuel economy (mpg)|
150 @ 3,500 rpm||

The Nissan X-Trail is the perfect vehicle for family adventures. Owners love its interior space – with five or seven seat layouts – its premium features and contemporary, robust design. The Intelligent 4x4 system means it's highly capable off-road, with a versatile and multi-functional character that makes it great for outdoor activities. A towing capability of up to 2,000kg means it's popular with customers owning trailers or caravans.
