Nissan releases X-Trail with ProPILOT autonomous drive technology

 

The Nissan X-Trail is the world’s best-selling SUV and the largest model in Nissan’s crossover lineup packed with a range of upgrades which further improve its quality and refinement. The Nissan X-Trail became the second car available with ProPILOT, Nissan’s autonomous-drive technology that reduces the hassle of stop-and-go highway driving. The updated X-Trail goes on sale at Nissan dealers throughout Japan. ProPILOT, the car's main new feature, supports drivers by helping control acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane driving on the highway.  

 

The X-Trail has won over customers with its excellent driving performance and advanced features, including Intelligent Emergency Braking and Intelligent Around View Monitor with Intelligent Park Assist. The model also comes with a remote-controlled Automatic Rear Door, which you can operate by sliding your foot under the rear bumper. Hybrid versions also feature an automatic grille shutter, which improves aerodynamic performance. Updated controls improve regeneration during deceleration. These features contribute to a fuel efficiency of 20.8 km/L (JC08 mode*2). All hybrid grades qualify for tax exemptions by exceeding 2020 fuel efficiency standards by 20%. The NISMO Performance Package version of the X-Trail features design updates to its signature front and rear under spoilers. It’s also available with newly designed aluminium road wheels as a dealer option.
