Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM) launched the All-New 3rd Generation Nissan X-Trail on 23 January in Kuala Lumpur – a premium crossover which has already won multiple awards including the “Indonesia Car of the Year 2014” from Mobil Motor Magazine and Auto Bild Indonesia Magazine, and “Car of the Year 2014” award by China Mainstream Media Automobile Alliance in China.

There are two (2) variants available in Malaysian market; the 2.5L 4WD, and the 2.0L 2WD, and the All-New X-Trail has already gathered over 1,300 bookings since pre-launch bookings started in December 2014.

Mr. Tan Keng Meng, Director of Marketing and Product Planning in addressing the launch of the All-New X-Trail said, “We are delighted to be able to introduce the All-New X-Trail to Malaysians. The previous generation X-Trails were such icons for SUV and crossover fans here, with more than 19,000 units on the road since ETCM first launched it in 2003. The completely redesigned All-New X-Trail combines Nissan’s acclaimed 4×4 heritage with fresh ideas, premium styling and groundbreaking technologies – making it one of the most advanced Crossovers with off-roading capabilities. This innovative premium crossover is further testament to ETCM’s commitment to bringing consumers with the best that Nissan has to offer.”

The locally assembled All-New Nissan X-trail is equipped with the new Active Chassis Control technology which consists of the following three (3) technologies that have been developed to ensure smooth, stress-free driving experience:

  • Active Ride Control system moderates any pitching motion experienced by drivers on bumpy roads by controlling engine torque and brakes to improve ride comfort
  • Active Engine Brake system adjusts the amount of engine braking to assist drivers to reduce speed when cornering or stopping
  • Active Trace Control system automatically applies small amounts of braking to the individual wheels to reduce understeer and help the driver maintain control around corners.

 

The 2.5L variant is equipped with an ALL MODE INTELLIGENT 4×4 System (4×4-i), for different driving modes based on road conditions

  • Two-wheel drive
  • Auto Mode – which automatically changes torque distribution between front and rear wheels when driving on paved or slippery roads
  • Lock Mode for permanent four-wheel drive.

Hill Start Assist is available in both variants and will hold the car steady when starting from a stop position on a slop. Additionally, there is the Hill Descent Control in the 2.5L 4WD variant which controls the vehicle speed (between 4km/h -15km/h) when descending a steep or slippery hill without applying brakes, allowing drivers to focus on steering the vehicle.

The 2.5L 4WD variant is powered by the QR25DE-k2 engine with Twin CVTC, providing a maximum power output of 171 PS at 6,000 rpm and 233 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The 2.0L 2WD variant comes with the MR20DD engine with direct fuel injection and Twin CVTC, churning out 144 PS at 6,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. Both variants are mated to the Nissan’s Next Generation Xtronic CVT with 7-speed manual mode, and the ECO mode system for better fuel efficiency.

On the exterior, Nissan has designed the X-Trail with Boomerang-shaped LED daytime running lights, the distinctive ‘V’-shaped Nissan grille and Rear Combination Lamp, which are standard for both variants. Unique to the 2.5 4WD variant are first-in-class LED Headlights with auto function and LED Wing Mirror Signal Lights. Roof Rails and 17-inch alloy wheels give the new All-New X-Trail a striking and imposing appearance.

A highly refined interior is emphasised with quality soft touch materials on the instrument panel, front door and centre armrest. Touches of chrome, geometric metallic and premium piano black finishing further evoke a sense of modern elegance in its interior ambience.

A 5+2 seating configuration makes for an exceptionally spacious cabin, particularly for instances when additional seating is required for children. It also has an impressive load capacity of 1,520 litres (with second and third row seats folded flat); and 550 litres (with third row seats folded flat).
