Nissan releases X-Trail with ProPILOT autonomous drive technology – Automotive World (press release)

The Nissan X-Trail today became the second car available with ProPILOT*1, Nissan’s autonomous-drive technology that reduces the hassle of stop-and-go highway driving.

The updated X-Trail goes on sale at Nissan dealers throughout Japan today. ProPILOT, the car’s main new feature, supports drivers by helping control acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane driving on the highway. The technology has until now only been available in the Nissan Serena, which was fully redesigned in August.

The X-Trail has won over customers with its excellent driving performance and advanced features, including Intelligent Emergency Braking and Intelligent Around View Monitor with Intelligent Park Assist.

The updated version also features design changes. The exterior has a tougher new look, and the interior has an enhanced quality feel.

Other changes offer new levels of convenience. The Intelligent Park Assist system has been improved. The model also comes with a remote-controlled Automatic Rear Door, which you can operate by sliding your foot under the rear bumper.

Hybrid versions also feature an automatic grille shutter, which improves aerodynamic performance. Updated controls improve regeneration during deceleration. These features contribute to a fuel efficiency of 20.8 km/L (JC08 mode*2). All hybrid grades qualify for tax exemptions by exceeding 2020 fuel efficiency standards by 20%.

The NISMO Performance Package version of the X-Trail features design updates to its signature front and rear under spoilers. It’s also available with newly designed aluminum road wheels as a dealer option.

  • *1: ProPILOT is available as a factory-installed option.
  • *2: The X-Trail Hybrid’s fuel consumption rate is calculated in Eco mode. The fuel consumption rate of the 4WD hybrid models is 20.0 km/L. For the 20X Hybrid (4WD), it is 19.8 km/L, depending on the combination of factory-installed options.
