newsNissanNissan has unveiled prices for the revised X-Trail, on sale now. The revisions include an updated exterior design plus new levels of interior quality, comfort and functionality and CO2 performance.

The entry level X-Trail remains the Acenta, now priced at £23,995 on-the-road, undercuting the Honda CR-V ES diesel by £685 and the Land Rover Freelander GS by over £1000. Standard equipment on the Acenta includes body-coloured, electrically-adjusting door mirrors, privacy glass, automatic headlamps and wipers, front fog lamps and 17in alloys.

The range-topping Tekna model costs £27,495. Additional features above Acenta trim include power-folding door mirrors, xenon headlamps, panoramic sunroof and leather seats. The infotainment package incorporates a Connect Premium HDD sat nav with music server and USB port, a rear view camera and BOSE audio with nine speakers.

CO2 emissions for the X-TRAIL 2.0-litre dCi 171bhp diesel manual now stand at 168g/km – a drop of 30g/km, or 15 per cent. This moves the vehicle down two VED tax bands to Band H (£250). There has also been significant improvement on fuel economy, with performance up from 38.2mpg to 44.1mpg on the combined cycle. The 2.0-litre dCi 171bhp diesel sees CO2 dropping to 188g/km, or 13 per cent, from VED Band K to Band J. Fuel economy improves from 34.9mpg to 39.8mpg on the combined cycle.

The X-Trail is still rated to tow a trailer weighing up to 2200kg, produces 266lb ft of torque at 2000rpm and accelerates from 0-62mph in 10 seconds.

Mechanical revisions to the new Nissan model include a revised manual gearbox and an improved shift schedule and enhanced friction reduction for the automatic transmission.
