The new 2023 Nissan X-Trail for Europe received a “turbo engine” and became a hybrid The fourth-generation crossover is only available with hybrid powertrains. The fourth-generation Nissan X-Trail crossover debuted on the European market. Here, the model received three powertrains to choose from: a 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine with a 12-volt starter-alternator and two versions of the e-Power hybrid system of a sequential type. The European X-Trail comes with either five or seven seats and a wide range of standard equipment.
The new Nissan X-Trail from the US has finally reached Europe via Japan. The fourth-generation crossover has become the second model in the line with the e‑Power hybrid installation, combining the 1.5 turbos with one or two electric motors. The front-wheel drive X-Trail e‑Power develops 204 horsepower (330 Nm) and accelerates to 100 in 8 seconds. For the version with all-wheel drive, 213 forces and acceleration to “hundreds” in 7-7.2 seconds are declared.
The variable compression ICE in the e‑Power is not connected to the wheels. It works optimally and only as a generator. Such a scheme, according to Nissan, has many advantages. First, the all-electric drive provides a linear response. And next, the speed of 40 kilometers per hour and the noise in the cabin are 8 decibels lower than that of a conventional Motor. The consumption of hybrids in the combined cycle is 5.8-6.5 liters.
Also in the range of the European X-Trail, there is a “turbo engine” 1.5 with a power of 163 forces and 300 Nm of torque, supplemented by a 12-volt starter-generator. It works within the framework of the start-stop system and during acceleration, it gives another 6 Nm of thrust. True, the crossover cannot boast of impressive dynamics: 9.6 seconds to a hundred. But on the other hand, he has the highest “maximum speed” – 200 kilometers per hour against 170-180 for hybrids.
In the Old World, the “fourth” X-Trail is available with a cabin for five or seven seats. The equipment of the model includes the NissanConnect media system with a 12.3-inch screen, a head-up display, and the ProPILOT semi-autopilot. Interesting to do: To recall the Japanese origins of the brand, the background on the digital instrument cluster (12.3 inches) is made in the style of traditional Kiriko glass panels. Orders for the new X-Trail are already being accepted. For example, in Italy, a crossover costs 38,080 euros or 2.3 million rubles.
