Nissan has announced the introduction of a new petrol burner for the X-Trail SUV.
The new generation of the Nissan X-Trail is ending up in our news once again, this time with the carmaker announcing a new engine, which has been added to the lineup. According to the Japanese based company, the model in question has received a turbocharged petrol engine, which has been borrowed from its smaller brother, the Qashqai. The unit is coming with a 1.6 liter displacement and it is capable of putting down a total of 163 HP (120 kW), with a peak torque of 240 Nm (177 lb-ft).
Nissan says that the new engine is one of the most efficient and advanced petrol burners in its class and this is capable of meeting the Euro 6 emission standards. The X-Trail equipped with this unit is capable of reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in 9.7 seconds and it has a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph). The maximum power is achieved at 5,600 rpm and the peak torque becomes available between 2,000 rpm and 4,000 rpm. The new version of the Nissan X-Trail is also available with a standard start / stop system and it is coming with the front-wheel drive, as the all-wheel drive system is still available for the diesel variant. The Nissan X-Trail equipped with the 1.6 liter DIG-T engine will begin its deliveries in September, but pre-ordering will become available this summer.
