Today, Nissan launched its All-New X-Trail in the Middle East. The new compact SUV is available at all Nissan dealerships across the region from today.


Muscular, modern and packed with technology, the new Nissan X-Trail originally made its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Building upon Nissan's respected 4x4 heritage and benefiting from the company’s crossover leadership the new X-Trail re-defines the compact SUV segment.

At the same time as enhancing its predecessor's ‘go-anywhere’ credibility, new X-Trail takes inspiration from Nissan's market-leading crossovers - Qashqai, Juke and Murano - to create the ultimate, all weather, highly capable, modern family vehicle.

Speaking at the occasion, Samir Cherfan, Managing Director at Nissan Middle East, said: “The New X-Trail is just as tough and accomplished as the previous generation model, but adds crossover style and efficiency, exciting design, innovative technology and exceptional comfort to set a new benchmark in the fiercely competitive C-SUV market”.

Samir Cherfan added: “In the Middle East the new Nissan X-Trail will replace both the previous model and the Nissan Qashqai. Together the Qashqai and the previous X-Trail model sold around 4,500 units last year. In our region, we expect that the new X-Trail will resonate well with our consumers and with an estimate sales target of 10,000 units per year”.


“We are very excited with the introduction of the All-New X-Trail which redefines the category in premiumness, comfort and technology” said Katib Belkhodja, Brand Manager for SUV & Cross-Over at Nissan Middle East. “We are confident that the New X-Trail is equipped to replicate the same success story than Patrol in its category.”

New X-Trail in detail


New X-Trail will be one of the most advanced cars on the road. Fully connected, the X-Trail is equipped with the latest generation NissanConnect in-car navigation, information and entertainment system. Drivers will also benefit from a comprehensive suite of assistance features that make up the X-Trail's Nissan Safety Shield system. The system includes Bluetooth audio streaming and mobile phone integration as well as Aux-in and USB slots.

In place of the rugged, squared off lines of the previous generation, the X-Trail has a premium and dynamic appearance. Its features include a number of Nissan signature cues such as the ‘boomerang' rear lights, structured headlights with LED daytime running lamps and the characteristic D-pillar shape. LED headlights, for both high and low beams, are standard on high grade models while 19-inch alloy wheels also give new X-Trail an imposing look.

The spacious interior has theatre-style seating and the option of two extra seats to make room for seven inside.



In keeping with the class leading standards set by the previous generation model, the new X-Trail adopts Nissan's advanced electronic four-wheel drive system, ALL MODE 4x4i. Controlled via a rotary switch on the centre console, it offers a choice between two-wheel drive, Auto mode or Lock offering permanent four-wheel drive.

The two world firsts are Active Ride Control and Active Engine Brake. Active Ride Control monitors the road surface to detect undulations. Active Engine Brake, meanwhile, harnesses the power and controllability of the Xtronic transmission to add a degree of engine braking while cornering or when decerating to a standstill. The benefits are greater braking control and enhanced feel with less pedal effort.

During the X-Trail's development; refinement, environment and economy targets were to be best in-class.

This has been achieved on all counts by reducing weight wherever possible, even though new X-Trail has a larger surface area than the previous model. The tailgate, for example, is largely plastic, saving seven kilograms.
