Nissan’s new fourth-generation Nissan X-Trail has debuted in Europe with a fully-electrified variant line-up. The all-new X-Trail will be available in both five and seven-seat configurations for better adaptability underpinned by the new Alliance CMF-C platform that focuses on lightweight construction.
The exterior is framed by striking headlights that appear moulded within the bodywork of the front bumper, with combined daytime running lights and indicators nestled along the shut-line of the hood. From behind, taught horizontal lines sit just above and below where the number plate is mounted, while split rear lights ensure a wide aperture for the trunk and a silver panel curves under the rear bumper. Key aerodynamic features include “3D” tyre deflectors in the lower front fascia, an active grille shutter to control airflow into the engine compartment, special A-pillar shaping, underbody covers to manage airflow under the vehicle, and a unique “air curtain” that precisely directs airflow from the front to the sides of the X-Trail.
