The current generation of the Nissan X-Trail takes us approximately two years. He is the older brother of the Nissan Qashqai and has many systems for driving assistance, in addition to four levels of equipment and capacity to accommodate up to 7 passengers. However, one of the things that you can throw in face of this SUV is its reduced mechanical range, something that now will change after the announcement by a new 2-liter dCi 177 HPNissan.
So far, the Nissan X-Trail is only offered with the propeller 1.6 diesel dCi 130 HP and the 1.6 DIG-T of gasoline with 163 HP. The majority of clients who choose a vehicle SUV of this size choose a diesel engine, but it is true that for many, the 130 HP of 1.6 dCi may be scarce, even more if we usually circulate with several people or much charged on roads of second order. According to the company, 46% of the SUV of this size are purchased with high power engines.
With the new engine 2.0 dCi 177 HP this problem should be solved, and that his figure of power is already more than acceptable for a SUV of this type. In addition, its high torque of 380 Nm should allow some recovery, and decent acceleration capabilities without resorting to the gear lever as soon as we find a slope in our journey.
This new engine of 177 HP is offered in three different configurations. If we want it to be associated with front-wheel drive also will be mandatory with the automatic change Xtronic CVT type; While in with the drive 4 × 4 is available both with this aforementioned automatic with a manual of 6 six relations. Approved fuel consumption is of 5.6 l / 100 km versions 4 × 4 manual and automatic FWD Xtronic, spending 6 liters to 100 in the variant 4 × 4 automatic. As it could not be otherwise, it complies with the Euro 6.
Moreover, everything remains unchanged. It is still available with a 5 or 7 seat cockpit, with 550 and 445 litres capacity for the trunk respectively. In the case of having the 7 operational capacity, cargo space is reduced to 135 litres, and if we killed the second and third rows, the volume grows to 1,982 litres.
