On the 13th of April 2023, Nissan South Africa (SA) launched the much-anticipated, fourth generation Nissan X-Trail, designed and primed to bring comfort, edge, and style. Sculpted with a muscular and modern design, it’s also equipped with a full suite of advanced driving assistance technologies for stress-free driving. Including a comprehensive range of technological features to ensure safety and a refined interior that delivers only the best in driver and passenger experience.

Kabelo Rabotho, Managing Director at Nissan SA said. “Building on a two-decade legacy, the all-new Nissan X-Trail is now available in South Africa. The X-Trail forms part of our commitment to continue Nissan’s long-standing heritage in the SUV. With its generous seven-seat configuration, versatile luggage space, and of course, how seamlessly it caters to the practicalities of day-to-day life, the premium crossover is the ideal addition to life’s on-the-road thrills,”

Launched along one of the country’s blissful and scenic coasts of Franschhoek, Western Cape, it brought to life the vehicle’s prowess as the perfect companion for families who not only live life but dare to drive it too.

“The X-Trail is our family icon, with a heritage of over 20 years. It has remained true to its original recipe: robust looks, advanced and efficient all-wheel drive powertrains, and flexible practicality, which come together to enable family adventures. The X-Trail draws from a well-established DNA that runs through all three of the previous generations and is the perfect companion for all adventures, complemented with an exciting driving experience on all terrains,” said Stefan Haasbroek, Chief Marketing Manager at Nissan Africa. 

Available in three variations – the Visia CVT, Acenta CVT, and Acenta Plus CVT – all boasting Nissan’s acclaimed four-cylinder petrol engine. This powerplant has a 2.5l engine displacement, churning out 135kW and 244Nm of torque – with an increase of 9kW and 11Nm from the outgoing model.  This power output propels the X-Trail to a top speed of 195km/h. As petrol continues to climb and put a dent in a lot of family budgets, the X-Trail’s combined fuel consumption of 7.4l/100km and 55l tank capacity helps alleviate the pressure. This means that adventures in the X-Trail will last far longer.

Advanced tech to keep drivers connected and safe.

The vehicle offers notable technologies including the intuitive 4×4 driving capabilities that the Nissan X-Trail is known for, offering peace of mind while driving. Through features such as Intelligent Cruise Control, Predictive Front Collision Warning, Blind Spot Intervention, Cross Traffic Alert, Forward Emergency Braking, and ProPilot – among others – it ensures the driver is well supported in all driving situations.

The new Nissan X-Trail also boasts a protective driving experience through the Driver Attention Alert (DAA) system – intended to address potential driver fatigue and inattention. Added to this is an onboard computer functionality to let drivers keep track of the fuel consumption in their present trip to average consumption details that assist in calculating the range of fuel consumption.

Keep the families dialed in and entertained.

Whether cruising to your destination or navigating tough terrains, the all-new X-Trail Acenta Plus provides you with three new displays including a 12.3-inch intuitive touch screen, 10.8-inch head-up display, and 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster (TFT) allowing you to customize the information in the most convenient way.
