Pricing starts from around £32,000, which gets you entry-level 'Visia' spec. Most X-Trail customers though, are going to be choosing one of the mid-range 'Acenta Premium' or 'N-Connecta' models though, which sit in the £34,000-£37,000 bracket. Top of the line trim, as usual with Nissan, is marked by the 'Tekna' and 'Tekna+' grades. Once you've chosen your trim grade, choose you powerplant. To graduate from the base MHEV mild hybrid unit to the more efficient 'e-POWER' powerplant, you'll need around £2,500 more. To go from 'e-POWER' to an e-4ORCE' 4WD model, you'll need an additional £2,200 over that Hybrid unit. Most X-Trail customers will want seven seats rather than the standard five and with three rows fitted, you'll need an extra £1,000.
Customers clearly appreciate choice, so the new X-Trail will be available in 10 body colours with five two-tone combinations, creating 15 variations to choose from. A powered hands-free tailgate on plusher variants makes accessing the boot effortless when hands are anything but free. And semi-autonomous driving is possible via Nissan's 'ProPILOT assist with Navi-link' set-up, which can accelerate and brake the vehicle within a single-lane on a highway. The system can accelerate the vehicle to cruise at a set speed and can brake the vehicle down to 0mph in heavy stop-start traffic. The system can resume automatically if the vehicle has been stationary for less than three seconds and the traffic in front of the car moves away.
