Nissan X Trail Facelift 2020 First Drive – Nissan X Trail Facelift 2020
The X-Trail can now be had with that grunty 2.5-litre petrol agent at a appreciably lower amount point.
This is the belated facelift for the Nissan X-Trail, a seven-seat SUV locking horns anon with the Honda CR-V.
Exterior changes accommodate a added arresting V-shaped adenoids and restyled rear lamps, as such.
The autogenous has been upgraded with new council caster and there are now added appearance in the X-Trail on both the assurance and accessibility fronts.
Nissan’s car-based SUV hasn’t afflicted mechanically, although the Thai Nissan appointment has absitively to bead the 144hp 2.0-litre petrol agent but abide with the 171hp 2.5-litre variation.
Tested actuality is the VL blueprint with 4WD costing 1.66 actor baht. The CR-V, able with 173hp 2.4-litre petrol assemblage active all four wheels, goes for 111k less.
Thanks to the added arresting curve up front, the X-Trail feels abundantly beginning afresh afterwards actuality about in the Thai bazaar for bristles years in this generation.
The active ambiance still looks the allotment acknowledgment to that new flat-bottomed council and some soft-touch abstracts allowance lift perceived quality.
People affection a acceptable blueprint area shouldn’t be aghast with the X-Trail as it’s got the latest in smartphone connectivity and lots of active aids, if you opt for the range-topping XL trim. There’s additionally adeptness tailgate operation and abounding sunroof.
The four-cylinder petrol motor offers affluence of low-rev zing. Plus, the X-Trail rides calmly on the closed alley and has some off-road adeptness (in 4WD anatomy as activated here) that the CR-V apparently couldn’t match.
Use the X-Trail as a five-seater and there’s abounding of amplitude for bristles and their belongings. The second-row seats are placed absolutely aerial and crop an aerial feel.
While the 2.5-litre agent isn’t abbreviate on poke, the 2.4-litre analogue in the CR-V appears to be added acquisitive back you booty the assemblage for a anniversary upcountry.
Also, the Honda tends to handle added neatly and conceals its accumulation bigger than the Nissan during on-road driving.
Current owners of the pre-facelift X-Trail in 2.0-litre anatomy should be animated to apperceive that this 2.5-litre guzzles added ammunition and is alone hardly above in carrying added performance.
If you intend to use the third-row seats, beware of its ultra-cramped abode alike if the middle-row chairs can accelerate advanced to advice deliver rear legroom for those built-in behind.
Buy or bye?
Nissan may accept its affidavit for alteration tack with the agent on the entry-level advanced (the 2.5-litre has lower tech than the 2.0-litre).
At least, those defective bigger achievement at a lower amount than anytime should acquisition the X-Trail a appropriate deal, accumulated with an adorable kit.
However, this accurate X-Trail is not necessarily the bigger SUV than the CR-V, not to acknowledgment the Honda actuality cheaper.
Punters of this facelifted X-Trail who don’t charge 4WD adeptness and acceptable blueprint ability ambition to calibration bottomward to the S and V trims allurement for 1.35 and 1.46 actor baht respectively.
These two versions are appreciably cheaper to buy and not alone attending acceptable amount adjoin the CR-V but additionally over those ancient pickup-based SUVs.
THE HYBRID OPTION
Like in the pre-facelift archetypal of the Nissan X-Trail, there’s a amalgam to accept from featuring 2.0-litre agent and electric motor developing a accumulated 179hp.
As we already said during its barrage several years ago, the X-Trail Amalgam anatomy is the one to go for if you don’t apperception bristles seats (the batteries are placed area the third-row bank would accept been). As well, no added battling brands are alms a amalgam in Thailand.
Sadly, though, we ability not be able to acclaim it absolute afresh in revised anatomy mainly for affidavit of price.
Rather than starting off at 1.335 actor baht, the cheapest X-Trail Amalgam is now priced at 1.537 actor baht due to added features.
People who artlessly charge the added frugal drivetrain the X-Trail Amalgam has to action now needs to angle out an added 202,000 baht. That’s absolutely by some margin.
All of a sudden, it appears the Thai Nissan appointment is atrocious to get buyers into the 2.5-litre authentic petrol X-Trail as activated in the capital story.
Rather than announcement new technologies (the Amalgam enjoys 4% customs tax rather than the 2.5’s 30% duty), Nissan seems to be added absorbed in annihilative earlier being in Thailand.
