2011 Nissan X-Trail updated for NZ market

August 19th, 2010 by Darren Cottingham

Late 2010 will see the launch of the new 2011 model Nissan X-Trail, which undergoes a series of extensive updates to maintain its position in the New Zealand SUV market.

The changes refresh X-Trail s exterior styling; improve the interior perceived quality and functionality, as well as mechanical and aerodynamic changes. These revisions contribute to X-Trail s improved economy and CO2 emissions.

The most obvious changes have been made to the frontal aspect of X-Trail, with completely redesigned grille, new headlights and bumper assembly. The lower part of the bumper is also angled further outwards, indicating a more solid stance.

At the rear, the X-Trail s distinctive vertical lights have been updated to incorporate LED light technology for the running lights and braking.

In profile, the X-Trail s stance has been updated by an increase in wheel size, with a ten-spoke 18 inch alloy wheel design which is also wider, now up to 225/55R18 in size, giving the X-Trail more stance to the road. A 17 inch alloy wheel is fitted to some variants, a new design featured for the 2011 model.

In the interior, the design has been updated with new materials and colour coordination. The materials used for the switch surrounds on the steering wheel, around the gear selector and on the door-mounted armrest have all been upgraded, while thicker, soft-touch materials have been chosen for the cloth seats.

Across the entire X-Trail range, all models now feature a 6CD in-dash autochanger with MP3 CD compatibility and auxiliary input, along with integrated Bluetooth handsfree phone system. All models feature steering wheel controls for audio, Bluetooth phone, drive computer and cruise control.

With optimised underbody aerodynamics, X-Trail s drag coefficient is reduced from 0.36 to 0.35 and the X-Trail s environmental impact has been lessened, with noticeable improvements in CO2 output and fuel consumption. These aerodynamic enhancements along with other improvements in the drivetrain result in fuel economy improvements of 2% for the petrol variants, and almost 9% for the diesel variants.

Full specification and pricing will be released closer to the New Zealand launch date, later this year.

The Nissan X-Trail has just been given a refresh and images have been released of the JDM-spec model. For 2011, there are some subtle design tweaks, mainly to the front end and the interior, plus equipment upgrades and a new diesel variant has been added to the range.

Fron the outside, the new 2011 X-Trail gains a redesigned front grille, front bumper and headlights, along with a rejigged rear bumper and new LED tail lamps. There s also a new model aptly named the X-Tremer which has unique bumpers and alloy wheels.

Inside, the X-Trail is given a redesigned instrument panel and a new larger information display system, plus additional standard features.

The diesel-powered X-Trail 20GT will now be made available with a new 6-speed automatic transmission. This 2.0-litre diesel unit outputs 170-horsepower and 360Nm / 265 lb-ft of peak torque. Nissan has also introduced a new Advanced Hill Descent Control fitted with a clever speed-setting function.
