Nissan X-Trail SUV facelift: pricing and details announced

Autonomous driving systems & refreshed exterior looks for seven-seater SUV; facelifted Nissan X-Trail starts at £23,385

A range of improvements for the Nissan X-Trail SUV has been revealed and the updated car is on sale now, priced from £23,385. The most significant alterations are the updated exterior looks and the addition of a suite of autonomous driving systems, dubbed ProPilot by Nissan.

The facelifted X-Trail’s redesigned front now features a deeper, lower and more prominent chrome accent that, together with the number plate, give the impression of bisecting the front bumper. The front foglights are now rectangular and more neatly integrated into the X-Trail’s ‘face’, while additional chrome features both at the front of the car and along the lower portion of the X-Trail’s doors.

The headlights have been tweaked, too, and although they remain similar to their predecessors, the (optional) adaptive LED headlights have improved cornering functionality. Other aesthetic improvements include a redesigned rear bumper and parking sensors that are now flush with the X-Trail’s bodywork.

Nissan has also been busy where technology is concerned, making its ProPilot suite of autonomous systems available on the facelifted X-Trail. This setup unites the lane-keeping assistance, adaptive cruise control and autonomous braking systems, allowing them to control “the steering, acceleration and braking in a single lane on highways during heavy traffic congestion and high-speed cruising.”

Although the facelifted X-Trail is largely unchanged inside, it does feature a new flat-bottomed steering wheel. New options include an updated Bose stereo for the top-spec Tekna trim, heated seats for second-row passengers, a redesigned gearlever for the automatic gearbox and a hands-free function for the powered bootlid Luggage space has grown from 550 litres to 565 litres, too.

A DAB radio is now standard across the X-Trail range, while the autonomous emergency braking gains pedestrian detection. Auto-hold brakes have also been added to X-Trails with a manual gearbox, keeping the car stationary – both on hills and on the flat – for three minutes, after which point the electronic handbrake will apply itself.

Facelifted Nissan X-Trail: price and on-sale date

The updated X-Trail is on sale now, priced from £23,385. That'll get you a five-seater model in Visia trim with a 161bhp 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine.
