Nissan X-Trail buyers in the UK can now choose between two brand new powertrain options: a 1.7-liter dCi diesel with 150 PS (148 HP) and a 1.3-liter DIG-T petrol with 160 PS (158 HP).
The diesel option is available with both 2WD and 4WD, and paired to a six-speed manual gearbox, while the petrol unit can be had exclusively with 2WD and a dual-clutch DCT transmission, which makes shifting gears quicker and smoother.
“The Nissan X-Trail is now better than ever thanks to a completely new range of powertrains. No matter what your adventure is, there’s an X-Trail for you,” stated Nissan Europe exec, Jean-Philippe Roux.
Both engines are said to meet the latest Euro 6d-Temp emissions standards, with the diesel unit producing 137-143 g/km of CO2 in 2WD spec, as per the NEDC-BT cycle. Go for the 4WD model and the numbers go up to 151-154 g/km CO2. The 1.3-liter petrol on the other hand, is good for 145-154 g/km CO2.
As for fuel economy (WLTP), the latter can average between 33.2 – 34.9 mpg (8.5 – 8.1 l/100km), while the 2WD diesel stands out as the most frugal, rated at 41.5 – 43.5 mpg (6.8 – 6.5 l/100km). The 4WD spec will do 39.8 – 42.2 mpg (7.1 – 6.7 l/100km).
The Nissan X-Trail is priced from £25,795 ($33,711) in the UK, which will land you the entry-level dCi 150 manual 2WD model. Opt instead for the flagship Tekna model and you’ll be spending as much as £33,595 ($43,895) on a dCi 150 4WD version.
