Since its introduction in 2014, today’s generation Nissan X-Trail has turned to be a familiar sight on British roads. Well, with tidy handling, seating for seven as well as relatively low running costs, the vehicle seemed to have covered all the bases for potential customers.
However, listening to customer feedback, the car maker learned that customers required more. For instance, they wanted a more impressive engine just to ensure improved flexibility as well as a less stressful towing experience. It leads us to the brand new 2017 Nissan X-Trail 2.0 dCi 177 4WD N-Vision with a more powerful 175bhp and 280lb ft, up 47bhp as well as 44Ib ft on the 1.6-litre diesel engine.
The new motor also provides the option of an automatic-gearboxed four-wheel-drive option for the first time. Dubbed Xtronic, it’s a CVT ‘box and it’s the only option if you’re eager to make use of a front-wheel-drive 2.0-litre of the 2017 Nissan X-Trail 2.0 dCi 177 4WD N-Vision. An alternative solution is a four-wheel-drive manual version.
In general, it handles almost the same as before, with less body roll, sufficient levels of grip and also a safe, secure balance.
