2010 NISSAN X-TRAIL SUV
Nissan X-Trail SUV has released details on the European market version that will arrive in showrooms in September (October for the UK). The revised X-Trail benefits from some modest updates to the exterior styling, improved interior quality and functionality, as well as from mechanical and aerodynamic changes.
The 2011 X-Trail has undergone very minor cosmetic surgery. Highlight include the redesigned grille, headlights and bumper assembly at the front, along with revised tail lamps that now incorporate LED light technology for the running lights and braking, restyled rear bumper and new 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in beefier tires.
Interior, there are new colors and higher-quality materials for the switch surrounds on the steering wheel, around the gear selector and on the door-mounted armrest, while thicker, soft-touch materials have been used for the cloth seats. Rear occupant comfort has been improved thanks to redesigned front seats, creating an additional 10mm of knee-room.
