INDIA (September 16, 2009) - Nissan Motor India Pvt Ltd. announced the release of the all-new X-TRAIL sport utility vehicle (SUV) today.
The new X-TRAIL, the first fully redesigned vehicle since its introduction in 2004, is engineered to be a tough, versatile SUV that stimulates a driver's spirit of adventure.
The original Nissan X-TRAIL was developed with the goal of providing customers with a versatile four-passenger, four-wheel drive vehicle. Since its launch, the popular X-TRAIL has been noted for its superior performance, functionality and authentic SUV experience. The all-new X-TRAIL promises to take the SUV experience to an even higher level, maintaining the original's tough, rugged design while adding elements that maximize owners' enjoyment of outdoor sports.
X-TRAIL's "toughness" is highlighted by its enhanced all-weather capability, provided by Nissan's latest electronically controlled four-wheel drive (4WD) system, the ALL MODE 4x4-i. This new system enhances stability by instantaneously analyzing information received from a steering angle sensor, a yaw rate sensor and a lateral accelerometer, to estimate the driver's cornering path and control front/rear torque split for smooth cornering behaviour on slippery road surfaces. Also new for this generation X-TRAIL are the Hill Descent Control (HDC) and Hill Start Assist (HSA) features. All three systems are designed to provide peace of mind for the driver through superior control and stability.
Additionally, X-TRAIL's hallmark high quality and outstanding utility have been enhanced with added convenience and storage features. Highlights of the restyled interiors include the use of new water-repellant materials and a larger, washable two-deck luggage compartment.
X-TRAIL comes with a newly developed 2.0-liter diesel engine. A 6-speed manual transmission is available, a unique offering in its class. The overdrive sixth gear produces high fuel economy with low noise and vibration.
