2017 stands to be a promising year for the car business. All carmakers will attempt and snatch the features with their items, be it facelifts, new-gen show redesigns or new models in their Indian portfolio.
Among an ocean of expected dispatches, lies a Nissan item which, on paper, means turn into a perfect vehicle for India.
It is the Nissan X-Trail Hybrid that functions admirably to serve two sides of a similar coin - on one side it is a SUV and functions admirably to draw eager for suv Indian clients and, on the opposite side it has a hybrid powertrain, which will control rising levels of destructive air-toxins.
Nissan has now uncovered subtle elements of the India-bound X-Trail Hybrid. Under the hood, it will be powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine, producing 144PS of power and 200Nm of torque.
The engine will be mated to an electric motor, which will draw its juices from a pack of lithium-ion batteries to produce 41PS of power and 160Nm of torque.
Power will be transmitted to the wheels through a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and a torque converter will be in place to minimize the loss of energy while shifting gears.
As far as measurements, the Nissan X-Trail Hybrid is 4,650mm long, 1,820mm in width and 1,710mm in height. With a wheelbase extending 2,705mm long, the new X-trail guarantees to be a roomier wagon than its forerunner. The new-gen X-Trail will get a ground freedom of 210mm, which will be fundamentally superior to its opponents.
On the outside, it will wear 225/65 R17 tyres, projector headlamps with LED DRLs, rear doors which will open up to 80 degrees for easier ingress and egress and an electrically operated auto tail-gate.
Inside the cabin, the car is expected to feature the segment-usual leather upholstery, a Bluetooth enabled infotainment system and, safety features such as ABS+EBD and half-a-dozen airbags.
Nissan is also boasting about something called a Around View Monitor, which delivers a bird's eye view of the vehicle using four cameras mounted outside. The thought is to help the driver get the car all through tight spaces easily.
Other safety, performance and security related features include Active Engine Braking, Active Trace Control, Active Ride Control, Hill Start Assist, Active Brake Limited Slip and Vehicle Dynamic Control.
Presently to the cost. Nissan X-Trail will come through CBU route to India. That implies it will draw in a heavy import impose. With a five-seater arrangement, the X-Trail is an immediate rivalry to the Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson and Skoda Yeti. Be that as it may, value shrewd, it is relied upon to cost near Rs 30 lakh, which is Toyota Fortuner money.
Indeed, even at that value, it is trusted that the Nissan X-Trail Hybrid is an unquestionable requirement consider on the off chance that you are spending anything near a similar value section.
