2020 Nissan X-Trail Redesign Coming Next Year

The 2020 Nissan X-Trail is one of the biggest wishes of US
fans. However, it looks like this vehicle is not coming to the
new market again. Still, it is one of the most popular off-road
SUVs across the see, wherever it appears. The new model will
need a lot of updates if the Japanese company wants to remain
competitive on the market. Practicability is the strong side,
but definitely X-Trail needs to change the appearance. Also,
more features and options inside the cockpit will be a bonus.

We can hear some hints that the new 2020 Nissan X-Trail could
leave its boxy look for the complete modernization. According
to reports, the SUV will look like the Qashqai
on steroids. Well, these two are already sitting on the same
platform, but the X-Trails is significantly bigger, with more
space inside the cabin. This room is used for the third row of
seats. With its off-road capabilities and enough space for big
family, there are no doubts why X-Trail is so popular.

2020 Nissan X-Trail Redesign

Recently Nissan facelifted the SUV. However, this is not
enough. To stay competitive, the 2020 Nissan X-Trail will need
more changes which can be obtained only by a large redesign.
Still, the upcoming model will keep the most significant
modifications for the current edition. That includes famous
V-motion grille and headlights. Of course, upper trims will
offer more features. For example, LED lamps are going to be
optional on the both ends of the SUV.

Whatsoever, the biggest change will be the new look. X-Trail is
not going to be the boxy SUV with bold appearance. The company
will modernize the styling to make it more practical and
aerodynamic. The new aesthetic model should be eye-catching and
more aggressive than before. It is possible that designers
could shred some ground clearance to make it sportier. The cost
is worse performance off the road.


Even if the SUV comes again with its famous boxy look, the 2020
Nissan X-Trail interior can’t be carried over from its
predecessors. It is the weakest point on the model. If Nissan
wants to keep the pace with competition, they must include some
cool features that will draw attention of younger buyers. The
most recent update was a thicker steering wheel. Also, the
X-Trail uses more upper-scale materials for the latest edition.
Expect some posh details for the 2020 year model.

The most impressive interior feature is the ProPilot autonomous
drive. This technology is still growing, and currently it can
steer, brake and accelerate. In future, it will replace many
other functions, like lane changing, overtaking, and
self-parking. Nissan chiefs recently said the Level 4 is the
target, since there is a small difference between it and Level
3. On the other hand, the gap between Level 2 and 3 is so big.
Whatsoever, this is still a chat without any clear details
about the next-gen ProPilot system. Still, the Japanese company
is one of the leaders in the segment, and the new X-Trail is
definitely getting the latest technology whenever it appears.

Engines and Specs

Main engines for the 2020 Nissan X-Trail are 1.6-liter
displacements that use diesel or petrol fuel. The first one is
capable to produce 130 horsepower and the gasoline version adds
30 ponies more. The SUV will also bring larger 2.0-liter
engines. In diesel models it produces 180 hp. On the other
hand, a 2.0-liter petrol unit is paired with an electric motor,
creating an X-Trail Hybrid with capability to burst 145 hp. Top
of the range petrol engine is a 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated
mill with 170 ponies. Also, the new X-Trail will share the
all-new engine with Qashqai. It is a 1.3-liter four-cylinder
powertrain. Turbocharged, it delivers 160 horsepower. Sadly,
the drivetrain will be available only in Europe, for now.

The CVT transmission is standard, although Nissan gave some
hints that this gearbox could be discontinued. It still works
smoothly. However, extra mileage is always welcome. Buyers can
choose between two and four-wheel drive. In the first case, the
power travels from engine to front wheels. The SUV is also
going to offer upper trim levels that are equipped with some
off-road features, which will improve the performance in tough
