New Model Nissan X-Trail Hybrid India Launch in Early 2017!

11

Most of you might remember the earlier generation Nissan X-Trail that was sold in India. The earlier X-Trail came to us via CBU-route. The X-Trail, even though was an excellent product, couldn’t impress the car buying lot and the condition got so bad that Nissan sold only 7 units in 2013. Nissan is now gearing up to launch the current generation X-Trail in India. The new model Nissan X-Trail India launch will take place in early 2017. This model was showcased to the Indian public for the first time at the Auto Expo. Here, in this post, we’ve put together all the available new model Nissan X-Trail India launch details.

As we just said, the new model Nissan X-Trail India launch will take place in early 2017. Nissan had plans to launch the X-Trail earlier, but there were delays for various reasons. Pricing and high demand for diesel-powered SUVs are to be blamed. However, with Hybrid models enjoying a tax benefit now, Nissan is working towards bringing the X-Trail to India as soon as possible. Nissan has just launched its GT-R supercar in India.

This combo has a combined power output of 179 bhp. The engine will be mated to either a 6-speed manual or a CVT gearbox.

Internationally, the new X-Trail gets Active Ride Control which scans the road that lies ahead and adjusts the suspension of the car accordingly and this will surely help the off-road trips. It will not be available with a 4-wheel drive system and will get a 7-inch touchscreen Nissan Connect Infotainment system on the inside.  It will lock horns with the likes of Honda CR-V, Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and Hyundai Santa Fe.

  • “RM31” electric motor with maximum power output of 41PS and maximum torque of 160 Nm
  • 2.0 L Petrol Motor – 147 PS and maximum torque of 207 Nm

  1. it seems fantastic product for the Indian customer need. Nissan should not underestimate to Indian customer and should launched all goodies with the cars as it is with international car. Like Hyundai done this mistake with the santa fe as small touch screen, poor display graphics, low standard music system, and at list its ground clearance should be 200mm.

  2. Grt comeback of Nissan…its cars Will take over the market soon…always known for best engine and build
    quality…

  3. Nissan has a wonderful engine performance, safety and comfort features. They lack design part. They need to work on design portion to compete in Indian market. Hyundai cannot compete Nissan in engine, quality and quality. But Hyundai be understood the Indian mindset of look and feel. So Nissan need to work on looks. Remove sunny and bring in Altima, Maxima, Rouge, Pathfinder.
    The New X Trail must be released in India soon to mark the standards and if will be a milestone for nissan.

  4. Nissan should launch the new X-Trail now as the competition in this 7 seater SUVs segment is gearing up or it will be filled up by the competitors

  5. This is a reasonably good car, but if they price it anywhere near the price suggested here, Nissan can rest assured that they might end up withdrawing this product from the market for lack of demand. I have had a chance to get into this car and the dimensions are nothing to crow about. The seats are just enough for an average-built person and is smaller than the earlier generation vehicle.

  6. I own this car in Middle east. What an amazing drive for family outing ! My kids love traveling in this..Certainly nice come back by Nissan both in build and quality. The olive green stand out in the traffic 🙂 I had to wait here for 4 months in get in hand…But the price in India is ridiculous ! I brought for just 14Lakhs Indian money where in India it is more than double :/ ?
