Nissan reveals facelifted 2011 X-Trail

The Nissan X-Trail has just been given a refresh and images have been released of the JDM-spec model. For 2011, there are some subtle design tweaks, mainly to the front end and the interior, plus equipment upgrades and a new diesel variant has been added to the range.

Fron the outside, the new 2011 X-Trail gains a redesigned front grille, front bumper and headlights, along with a rejigged rear bumper and new LED tail lamps. There’s also a new model aptly named the ‘X-Tremer’ which has unique bumpers and alloy wheels.

Inside, the X-Trail is given a redesigned instrument panel and a new larger information display system, plus additional standard features.

The diesel-powered X-Trail 20GT will now be made available with a new 6-speed automatic transmission. This 2.0-litre diesel unit outputs 170-horsepower and 360Nm / 265 lb-ft of peak torque. Nissan has also introduced a new “Advanced Hill Descent Control” fitted with a clever speed-setting function.

The 2011 X-Trail goes on sale in Japan on July 16. Check back for more information on an upcoming NZ launch of the refreshed Nissan X-Trail.
