Latest addition to X-Trail range

Nissan has introduced a new trim level to its popular X-Trail range, boasting a host of standard equipment and sporty looks to make it stand out from the off-road crowd.

The new n-tec+ grade, which sits between the Acenta and flagship Tekna models, offers drivers the latest technology at their fingertips, including Nissan Connect with a five-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system that also packs Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free telephone calls and music streaming.

Nissan's acclaimed Around View Monitor 360 degree parking system is also on board, providing colour front, rear and passenger side cameras, to ensure owners will always have the safety of a bird's-eye view when manoeuvring.

In addition, an electric tilt and slide panoramic sunroof, plus keyless entry and start, climate control, cruise control, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers and rear privacy glass come as standard.

A chrome finish to the front fog lamps and side bars with side steps give the new n-tec+ a slick look, with 18-inch alloys topping off the makeover.

As always with the X-Trail range, the new 4x4 trim offers strong performance both on and off-road.
