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 around the end of 2016. 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.
New Model Nissan X-Trail India Launch Date
As we just said, the new model Nissan X-Trail India launch will take place around the end of 2016. 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 and ban on diesel vehicles above 2000 cc, Nissan is working towards bringing the X-Trail to India as soon as possible.

New Model Nissan X-Trail Specifications
The 2014 X-Trail gets a major revamp in its third generation guise and one of the key issues of not having a third row of seats has now been taken care of. The India bound X-Trail will come to us only in its hybrid avatar which comes with a 2.0-litre petrol engine that will work in conjunction with an electric motor. 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.
