Nissan earlier last week confirmed the launch of the X-Trail in India sometime around later in July. The SUV was first showcased in India back in 2022, although the X-Trail moniker is not new to the Indian market. The SUV was on sale in the country between 2005 and 2014. In its latest iteration, the X-Trail will be brought to India  as a fully-imported CBU model, at least initially.

Based on the CMF-C platform that has been co-developed alongside Renault. The X-Trail is Nissan’s attempt at clawing back into the market which currently has a very thin portfolio in India. In the latest teaser, Nissan highlights more or less the same elements as shown in the previous teaser.

The India-spec model is expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre turbo petrol mild hybrid powertrain which dishes out 201 bhp and 330 Nm of peak torque. A CVT automatic gearbox will be offered as standard. This powertrain is likely to be available in both front and all-wheel drive (AWD) configurations.

In terms of features, the X-Trail is expected to come equipped with a plethora of creature comforts including three-zone climate control, powered tailgate, panoramic sunroof, engine start-stop button, all-LED illumination and more.
