Nissan has updated its X-Trail crossover

With the X-Trail's third birthday rapidly approaching, a facelift was becoming overdue. The refreshed version, which arrives in August, gets both cosmetic and technical changes.

As is usually the case with such exercises, the most obvious styling alterations are at the front end. There, the upper and lower grilles now almost merge behind the numberplate, plus the headlights have been redesigned.

Inside, improving refinement and practicality were the main objectives. Accordingly, materials are claimed to be of better quality, while luggage capacity for the five-door variant has risen from 550 to 565 litres.

For the first time, X-Trail will be available with ProPilot. This autonomous driving technology suite can control acceleration, braking and steering, but only when travelling within a single lane.

As before, the engine line-up comprises 160 bhp (120 kW / 163 PS) 1.6 litre petrol, 128 bhp (96 kW / 130 PS) 1.6 litre diesel and 174 bhp (130 kW / 177 PS) 2.0 litre diesel units. All can be specified with either front- or all-wheel drive.
