Therefore, the fourth X-Trail is on the way. It is known that the next crossover will get more attractive and roomier predecessor, and will have a modern electronic chips through collaboration Nissan with Mitsubishi.
As the X-Trail will look like?
The predecessor of the fourth Nissan X-Trail will have a much more cheerful appearance that will be fulfilled with an eye on the youth compact crossovers Juke Kicks and a second-generation, as well as on the concept car Xmotion presented at the beginning of 2018.

In the back of the body can be traced similarities with the current model, from which the new product will get feeds with comparable proportions as well as similar lights. However, the car will look more aggressive thanks to the extra plastic body kit and imposing new protective plates of the bottom. It is possible that the crossover will be available with a seven-seater cabin – at the moment this modification is only found in China.

In General, the interior will undergo even greater changes than the exterior. Spy photos of the X-Trail say that the crossover will receive a new multifunctional steering wheel with a beveled lower segment, a fully digital dashboard and a large multimedia display, enclosed in a separate block. Unlike some other major brands, Nissan has decided to abandon the vertical tablets in favor of screens with horizontal.
