A new generation Nissan X-Trail has been certified in China. Outwardly, the novelty almost exactly repeats the American crossover Rogue, and the engine line includes a 1.5-liter turbo engine – it will replace the outdated 2.5-liter naturally aspirated unit.
The production of the new X-Trail for the local market will be organized at the Dongfeng-Nissan joint venture. Externally, the version for China can be distinguished from the American Rogue by the design of the bumpers and dimensions: the crossover is two centimeters wider than the model for the United States, and its wheelbase has not changed relative to its predecessor and is 2706 millimeters.
The Chinese X-Trail will be powered by a 1.5 VC-Turbo three-cylinder variable compression ratio engine that produces 204 horsepower. For comparison, the power of the previous 2.5-liter “aspirated” was 181 power. In China, the crossover will be offered with both front and all-wheel drive.
