Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Nissan X-Trail Premium Concept image

Nissan is celebrating the high sales figures of its crossover range by showcasing this year at Geneva two Premium Concept versions of the Qashqai and X-Trail.

The SUV segment has been booming for some time now in Europe and Nissan took advantage of this trend with its Qashqai and X-Trail. To celebrate the sales success, the Japanese automaker is displaying two special concept versions of these models at the Geneva Show, which both are bringing a more premium and dynamic design interpretation. The X-Trail Premium Concept, the work of Nissan’s Global Design Centre in Japan, explores the potential of a new level of personalisation in the crossover sector.

The X-Trail Concept uses a matt white paint as its main colour, with the bonnet and roof covered with a deep black matt carbon fibre finish. The high contrast of the white and black emphasizes the line which starts from the V-shaped front grille and continues to the hood and side to the rear of the car. This contrast also reflects the rugged `go-anywhere’ nature of the X-Trail crossover. The premium golden copper colour is featured on the front skid plate and on the 20-inch wheels, drawing the attention towards those areas, while the body claddings and over fenders are painted in gloss black, a nice touch to finish the overall transformation.

Inside, the seats are tailored in a combination of premium leathers, with a tan coloured leather with a `cloud effect’ design on the head rest and seat sides, while a gold pearl leather has been used on the central section of the seat back and at the base. The dashboard and the door panels are covered in a black carbon fibre and matt chrome black trims, giving the interior space an upscale appeal.
