Nissan X-Trail Facelift Launched In Thailand, Adds Advanced Tech

Nissan Motor Thailand has officiated the introduction of the facelift model of the popular X-Trail SUV.

New features that encompass the mid-life refresh on the SUV include:

  • Nissan Intelligent Mobility Advanced Driving Assist System
    • Adaptive cruise control, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and High-Beam Assist
  • Restyled front design, with new V-motion grille  
  • New graphics in the tail lamp and restyled rear bumper
  • New head lamps with Adaptive Front Lighting system (AFS)
  • Two-tone 19-inch alloy wheels
  • Shark fin antenna
  • D-shaped steering wheel
  • Double-stitching on interior panels

Nissan Motor Thailand has re-strategized their powertrain line-up, axing the 2-litre and only offering either a 2.5-litre or the hybrid system.

As such, the three variants with the 2.5-litre engine cover a price range from THB 1.35 million to THB 1.66 million, with the two hybrid variants slotting in between.

According to a report in the Bangkok Post, the chiefs at Nissan Motor Thailand said the 2-litre engine carried higher engineering costs. The engine also did not offer any tax-saving as it emitted CO2 levels of 174 g/km, above that target value of 150 g/km.

The X-Trail Hybrid model is also powered by the same, pricier 2-litre engine, but thanks to the fitment of a full hybrid system, the CO2 emission dips to just under the threshold at 148 g/km. Two variants of the X-Trail hybrid, both equipped with the 4WD system, are available in Thailand, priced at THB 1.537 million and THB 1.617 million.

To recap, the conventional 2.5-litre engine delivers outputs of 171 PS and 233 Nm of torque. In the self-charging hybrid variant, the unique two-clutch-one-motor system has a combined output of 179 PS, with the electric motor itself delivering 41 PS (30 kW) of power and 160 Nm of torque.

A CVT-type automatic transmission is fitted in all variants. The fuel consumption for the 2.5-litre variants is 8.2 litres per 100 km, while the hybrid variants manage to deliver an impressive 6.4 litres per 100 km. With the lithium-ion battery taking up space in the luggage area, the X-Trail Hybrid is only available as a 5-seater.

More details of Nissan’s two-clutch-one-motor hybrid system can be found here. Thailand was the first country outside of Japan to introduce the X-Trail Hybrid model.   

New advanced driving assistance system consisting of adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and high beam assist (termed Nissan Intelligent Mobility) are available in the top-of-the-range VL-variant of both powertrain options.

Standard fitment in the X-Trail 2.5S includes autonomous emergency braking, 4 airbags, third-row seating, infotainment system with touchscreen display, and an electric parking brake with automatic brake hold function.  

As Nissan Motor Thailand is the key supplier of knocked-down parts and kits (CKD) to the ASEAN region, we can expect Edaran Tan Chong Motor to introduce the facelifted Nissan X-trail in Malaysia within the next few months.
