"In October of last year, NMPI introduced the NISMO Sentra I-Style which proved to be one of the most sporty sedan packages in the market today. With the introduction of the NISMO X-TRAIL, NMPI is once again setting the trend in the highly competitive compact SUV segment, and taking the X-TRAIL's persona to a higher level," explained Dennis Chang, AVP for Marketing and Sales at NMPI.
The total package if bought separately costs approximately P230,000. Starting February 22, authorized Nissan dealers will offer a special price package for the complete set of NISMO parts and accessories for the X-TRAIL.
With the suspension modifications, the X-TRAIL still retains some of its off-road capabilities. However, there is a marked improvement in on-road performance, as the sporty tire and rim combination and firmer suspension set-up make for better handling in taking those straights and corners at high speeds.
Likewise, the free-flow muffler and air filter allows for better response, and a better availability of torque over a wider rpm range. "With the NISMO add-ons, the X-TRAIL is now probably the most agile SUV in the market," Mr. Chang said. The NISMO X-TRAIL is available at authorized Nissan dealers along with the NISMO Sentra I-Style.
