Nissan has announced a suite of connectivity and infotainment updates to the X-Trail range. 

Designed to reduce distractions and enhance convenience, the Nissan Connect infotainment system featured in the X-Trail simplifies in-car connectivity through the use of a single dash-mounted unit. 

Through Nissan Connect, passengers can link their smartphones to the seven-inch touch screen through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and allow the driver to access various applications such as Google Maps and online music streaming services.

Complementing the addition of Nissan Connect to the range, the following enhancements have been added to the Acenta (Mid) & Tekna (High) grades:

– LED headlights-Reverse camera;

– Push-start button;

– Keyless entry with a sensor;

– controlled power tailgate.

Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention – alerts the driver to the presence of vehicles in blind spots diagonally behind the car.

Intelligent Lane Intervention – alerts the driver when it detects that the X-Trail is straying from its lane.

Intelligent Cross Traffic Alert – when backing out of a parking space, this feature can detect and warn the driver of vehicles that are approaching behind the X-Trail.

Intelligent Emergency Braking – uses radar technology to monitor vehicle speed and proximity to the vehicle ahead and will alert the driver before engaging the brakes.

Intelligent Forward Collision Warning – helps alert drivers of an impending collision with a slower moving or stationary car.

Intelligent Auto Headlights – automatically changes between high and low beams when oncoming vehicles are detected at night.

Intelligent Around View Monitor with moving object detection helps drivers park more easily by giving the driver a 360 bird’s eye view.
