The upcoming 2020 Nissan X-Trail is the company’s largest SUV that is available in Europe. The new model will introduce numerous updates, but almost all of them are very minor. As a matter of fact, the current model arrived with a redesign, so minor updates and changes are the logical outcomes.
Whatsoever, the 2020 Nissan X-Trail will get exterior tweaks and interior will be more modern than before. X-Trail is available in numerous configurations and trim levels. For instance, a seven-seat variant will become available. Also, numerous engine options are available and a hybrid version could happen as well.
2020 Nissan X-Trail Looks Muscular
The all-new 2020 Nissan X-Trail will retain its current dimensions. Even the shape will largely remain. However, after a significant redesign, new X-Trail comes with cleaner styling. The exterior will get further polishing but some parts will still look muscular. The arriving SUV looks very sharp, attractive and elegant at the same time.
Some parts are very sporty and similar to the Qashqai’s sportiness. Whatsoever, X-Trail looks more like a real crossover than the actual SUV. Perhaps the main reason is that the X-Trail borrows some cues from Nissan’s sedans. The front end looks very modern. V-Motion grille will remain and the LED headlights will get a cleaner design. The rear roof spoiler is optional, just like the panoramic roof and body-colored bumpers.
Cabin Provides More Legroom
Nissan is a well-known automaker in terms of comfort and interior design. The 2020 Nissan X-Trail will look very modern and stylish from the inside. Also, the interior room is generous and this SUV offers a long list of standard features. The dashboard splits in half. First part sports climate controls and the second part hosts the infotainment system.
Also, the new driver’s display will sit on the dash. On top of that, a smaller 5-inch touchscreen will be replaced by a larger unit. Nissan offers very upscale materials inside the cabin. However, leather upholstery remains optional. Even the base model equipped with standard features and cloth upholstery looks great. Nissan claims the best-in-class legroom for the new 2020 X-Trail.
Under the hood, things will stay intact. That means the 2020 Nissan X-Trail offers the same engine lineup. Three engine choices are available. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is standard and it returns 145 HP. Optionally, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder drivetrain provides 170 HP. A 1.6-liter diesel engine will be optional as well.
According to the latest reports, the 2020 X-Trail could arrive as a hybrid. The hybrid drivetrain will include a mix of a standard 2.0-liter engine and a single electric motor. Also, a larger battery pack will be included. The same reports are suggesting around 200 horsepower output with 34 mpg combined.
Nissan X-Trail 2020 Release Date and Price
The price of the upcoming 2020 Nissan X-Trail starts at $24,000. This SUV will arrive in Europe in the third quarter of 2019. Also, the U.S. variant “Nissan Rogue” is available. The Nissan Rogue model will arrive with a little higher price than the X-Trail. However, Nissan Rogue will most likely arrive on the American soil at the beginning of 2020.
