It won't be long now until we see the all-new Nissan X-Trail make its global debut. After announcing to the world that they will be revealing a total of 13 models for the next several years, the Japanese automaker revealed that the next-generation X-Trail is coming real soon.
Just recently, the automaker officially released a teaser image of the next-generation crossover, and it looks, unlike the outgoing generation. Not that this is the first time we actually get to see it mind you. Back in April, supposed photos of the next-generation X-Trail were posted online. Not only did we get to see shots of the exterior, but there was also a picture of the X-Trail's cabin.
Comparing the pictures we saw previously with what Nissan posted recently, and it's clear that the previously leaked photos match the teaser image the automaker showed. Like the all-new Juke, the X-Trail (aka Rogue) now sports the two-tier headlight design. The top features the LED daytime running lights while the bottom section holds the LED headlights. Meanwhile, a bigger V-Motion front grill completes the crossover's bolder looks.
There are no official pictures of the rear yet. But if we were to base its appearance from the leaked photos, the X-Trail's rear appears to have borrowed some styling cues from the Kicks, albeit they're slightly wider. The tailgate itself comes with a plethora of creases and sharp lines which give it a more sophisticated look.
No official pictures of the X-Trail's interior yet. Luckily, we're able to get a peek of it thanks to the previous leak. If the image were to be believed, it now has a wider dashboard, a new digital multi-info display, a free-standing touchscreen media display, as well as a more high-tech-looking center console. It also has a new three-spoke steering wheel, wireless phone charging, a new gear selector, and a cleaner center stack.
For now, the automaker has yet to reveal its powertrain lineup. Nissan could retain its current engine lineup, however, which consists of a 2.0-liter inline-four or a more powerful 2.5-liter which comes with all-wheel drive. We won't be surprised though if Nissan decides to stick in a turbocharged/hybrid powertrain for the 2021 X-Trail as most automakers are now going towards that route. In the future, there could even be an e-Power hybrid system.
With Nissan gearing for its up eventual reveal very soon, the compact crossover market might be buzzing again in the not so distant future.
