The all-new 2020 Nissan X-Trail is the largest Nissan’s SUV that is currently available in Europe. The forthcoming X-Trail will arrive with minor updates only, as it’s predecessor already got a more significant redesign. The current model offers attractive design from the outside and more subtle approach from the inside.
The newest 2020 Nissan X-Trail is about to get further exterior polishing and the interior will be additionally modernized. A wide range of engines is providing more than the fair choice to the customers. Moreover, a hybrid drivetrain is a possibility for 2020. Even the version with seven seats is very likely outcome in the near future. The off-road-capable X-Trail is slowly preparing for its third generation.
2020 Nissan X-Trail is more muscle
The upcoming 2020 Nissan X-Trail will keep its shape and dimensions. The new model will look cleaner than the current one and some parts will gain more muscles. However, those changes are minor as the Japanese carmaker opted for the more subtle approach. Overall, the exterior looks attractive and sharp. The aerodynamics are great and Nissan is doing a great job in this department. You can take new Qashqai as a perfect example.
The X-Trail’s look is closer to the crossover than the regular SUV as this model will borrow some cues from the company’s sedans. The front end comes with brilliant design, the front fascia looks amazing and LED headlights are slightly reshaped. The V-Motion grille is the company’s signature mark for years now and X-Trail will keep the current one. Body-color bumpers are optional, along with the rear roof spoiler and panoramic roof.
2020 Nissan X-Trail inside the cabin
The Japanese carmaker will deliver subtle interior changes to the new 2020 Nissan X-Trail. The cabin already looks modern and stylish. The room inside the cabin is great and this SUV offers plenty of standard features and equipment. The dash comes in two parts, the first one comes with the climate controls and the other one comes with the infotainment system.
A standard 5-inch display will carry over but new Drive-Assist Display will find its place on the dash. Plenty of soft-touch materials are present, but if you want leather upholstery, it is optional. Nissan completes the interior changes with the new storage box that is larger than the previous one. According to the Japanese automaker, new X-Trail offers the best-in-class legroom.
2020 Nissan X-Trail powertrain
Nothing will change under the hood. The 2020 Nissan X-Trail comes with three engine choices as before. Besides the standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 2.5-liter four-cylinder units, X-Trail will get a hybrid drivetrain.
The standard engine is capable of producing 145 horsepower and optional 170 horses. Even the 1.6-liter diesel engine could make the production, but this is just a rumor for now.
2020 Nissan X-Trail hybrid will improve mileage
A hybrid drivetrain will utilize a standard 2.0-liter engine with a single electric motor and a battery pack. Hybridization should add a boost of 40 horses and 80 lb-ft of torque. Moreover, the hybrid drivetrain will improve mileage and new X-Trail could offer 34 mpg combined.
