The new X-Trail will be among the most efficient cars in class, emitting 129g/km CO2 in two-wheel drive form, which should translate to economy of almost 60mpg.A 161bhp DIG-T turbocharged petrol engine will be added to the range in 2015.

It will come in a choice of three trim levels: Visia, Acenta and Tekna. All cars will get air-conditioning, alloy wheels, six airbags, LED daytime running lights, five-inch colour combimeter display, Bluetooth with microphone, cruise control and speed limiter, hill start assist, follow me home lights and a luggage board system. Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn told Auto Express the X-Trail will be built in five plants worldwide and sold in over 100 markets. “It’s another segment busting model for us, like the Juke and the Qashqai,” he added.

A spokesman said: “New X-Trail is just as tough and accomplished as the previous generation model, but adds crossover style and efficiency, exciting design, innovative technology and exceptional comfort to set a new benchmark in the fiercely competitive C-SUV market.”

The X-Trail also gets two brand new technologies: Active Ride Control and Active Engine Break. The first monitors the road surface to detect bumps and alters the damping to compensate. The latter aids the driver by adding engine braking when the car is cornering or decelerating to a standstill for better and faster braking control.
