Nissan all-new X-Trail SUV features world’s first Active Ride Control and Active Engine Brake
Nissan announced today that the all-new X-Trail SUV will commence sales at dealers throughout Japan starting December 16. Targeting young customers who enjoy outdoor sports, the new X-Trail is a continuously evolving authentic SUV. It features the popular ALL MODE 4X4-i system and advanced chassis control technologies that have been adopted as world-firsts. Combined with other technologies that help improve fuel efficiency, the all-new X-Trail delivers excellent driving performance and achieves best-in-class1 fuel economy of 16.4 km/L.
X-Trail adopts Nissan’s well-recognized four-wheel drive system, ALL MODE 4x4i, as previous generation models, with Hill Start Assist, Advance Hill Descent Control, and Yaw Moment Control. Advanced technologies, including world’s first Active Ride Control and Active Engine Brake, and Cornering Stability Assist, are adopted in all grades to significantly improve riding comfort and drivability.
With flexible luggage area that can be custom-portioned depending on size and the type of luggage, and increased storage space including pockets and cup holders, customer convenience is enhanced. The optional hands-free remote-controlled rear hatch enables a person with the Intelligent Key to easily open it just by waving a hand or an object near the sensor even when holding a package. This can be utilized in various situations from daily driving to outdoor activities. Fatigue caused by long-distance driving is reduced by newly-developed Spinal Support seats in the front and rear. In addition to two-row five-passenger grades, three-row seven-passenger grades are newly added.
X-Trail supports enhanced safety and security while driving in various situations with the adoption of the Emergency Brake, Emergency Assist for Pedal Misapplication, LDW (Lane Departure Warning) and Do-not-enter Sign Detection systems available together at an affordable price. BSW (Blind Spot Warning) and Driver Attention Alert are also offered as optional features. With newly-adopted Nissan first Around View Monitor with Parking Assist, a driver does not need to turn the steering wheel when parking in a garage or parallel parking. It makes parking much easier. The Advanced Drive-Assist Display also provides a variety of vehicle information to support driving
The Emergency Brake, adopted by Nissan for the first time, is one of several safety features which complement the Around View Monitor with Intelligent Parking Assist. These features help drivers maneuver the vehicle with confidence in a variety of driving situations. The all-new Nissan X-Trail for the Japanese market is being assembled by Nissan Motor Kyushu Co., Ltd. The sales target for the Japanese market is 2,500 units per month.
