Nissan has launched an updated X-Trail range in South Africa.
This inter-generational update aims to improve cabin features while adding extra safety systems.
“The Nissan X-Trail is one of the world’s best-selling SUV’s, a key vehicle in the Nissan family and a favourite among South African customers,” said Stefan Haasbroek, Nissan South Africa Marketing Director.
The upgraded Nissan X-Trail is now fitted with the Nissan Connect infotainment system.
This system allows passengers to connect their smartphones to the 7-inch touch display on the dash, through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Moreover, it also allows access through applications such as Google Maps, online music streaming, and satellite navigation from the multifunction steering wheel.
The Acenta and Tekna trim, as the more expensive variants, will get LED headlights, a reverse camera, start button, and keyless entry with an electric tailgate as standard.
Safety systems are then standardised across the range.
Grouped under the name Nissan Intelligent Mobility, these include:
- Intelligent auto headlights
- Intelligent cross traffic alert

- Intelligent emergency braking
- Intelligent around view monitor
- Intelligent blind spot intervention
