There is no denying that the first- and second-generation X-Trail was boxy and, for lack of a better word, ugly. For 2014, Nissan redesigned the X-Trail, ushering in a new generation and a more modern design that puts it leagues ahead of the outgoing model. On the outside, the X-Trail takes styling cues from the rest of Nissan’s crossover and SUV lineup, featuring the V-Motion grille, a heavily revised front fascia, new exterior lighting modules, and a sleek side profile. It should also be noted that the new X-Trail also drops that boxy, 80s-looking rear end for a more modern look that should appeal to the masses. Inside, The X-Trail benefits from more space, better ergonomics, the latest iteration of Nissan’s NissanConnect system with a seven-inch display and smartphone connectivity. The downfall of the new X-Trail is the underpowered boredom box under the hood. The 1.6-liter diesel engine delivers a laughable 128 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, which means its looks better be good enough if it stands a chance against models like the BMW X3 and the Honda CR-V.

According to Nissan, the new X-Trail “combines Nissan’s 4x4 heritage with fresh ideas and technologies inspired by its ground-breaking crossover models.” Even with an available all-wheel drive system, the X-Trails ability to conquer anything in the dirt is more than questionable. With 128 horsepower, you might have a better chance off-roading in a Honda Civic. Be that as it may, the new X-Trail is still a huge departure from the outgoing model, and it does have the modern look going for it. So, with that said, take a look at our full review below and make your own opinion about the new Nissan X-Trail.

2016 Nissan X-Trail Style Edition

2016 Nissan X-Trail Style Edition

“Stylish” new edition for the Rouge’s overseas brother

Nissan has released a new special edition for the X-Trail crossover. It’s designed to attract those wanting a unique styling with more stylish trimmings. Aptly enough, Nissan is calling it the X-Trail Style Edition. How sophisticated.

The Style Edition is said to feature many of the X-Trail’s most desirable accessories, making it a one-box check-off for those wanting a loaded crossover. The Style Edition builds off the X-Trail’s range-topping trim, the Tekna grade. This already bumps the Nissan into the upper registers of amenities and features.

The new edition doesn’t make changes to the X-Trail’s drivetrain, so both the 1.6-liter dCi 130 diesel engine and the 1.6-liter DIG-T 163 gasoline engines are available. Both engines now come with a start/stop system for better fuel economy and less emissions. Customers can also choose between FWD and 4WD, along with a manual transmission or Nissan’s Xtronic CVT.

Beyond the “stylish” updates, the X-Trail Style Edition offers the same versatility as before. It can be had in either five- or seven-passenger configurations, offers Nissan’s Luggage Board System that allows customers to configure the cargo area in 18 different ways, and the rear tailgate has a one-touch automatic opening feature.

Nissan says the X-Trail Style Edition is already available for the starting price of £29,405, or roughly $42,363 U.S. dollars at current exchange rates.

2016 Nissan X-Trail Premium Concept

2016 Nissan X-Trail Premium Concept

Designers doll-up the X-Trail for Geneva

Production cars and futuristic concepts aren’t the only things showing up for the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Nissan is bringing a pair of customized crossovers that the automaker hopes will bring attention to the brand. Both the Qashqai and X-Trail examples have been remained with interesting paintwork and design cues, along with interior upgrades that bring added flair to the designs. Here, we’ll be focusing on the X-Trail.

Nissan says the X-Trail is “targeted for the ‘Premium Adventurist,’ who will be thinking of mountain adventures in the Alps or the Pyrenees.” While it’s hard to imagine the X-Trail soft-roader talking more than a dirt path, Nissan’s Global Design Center in Japan sees this as “pushing boundaries and exploring creative solutions to fulfill the broad range of the needs of the aspirational customers in Europe.”

Marketing hype aside, the X-Trail Concept does look swanky, especially with the matte gold accents, carbon fiber accent on the hood, and 20-inch wheels. The most disappointing aspect is knowing this concept will likely never see production – unless Nissan gets rave remarks at Geneva. In that case, the X-Trail could receive a similar appearance package sold in limited numbers.

For U.S. buyers, hope is completely lost. That’s because the X-Trail isn’t offered Stateside, but rather the Rouge, which granted is based on the same platform and has uncanny similarities. Secondly, Nissan’s statements about the X-Trail Concept detail how this design study was conducted with European customers in mind – something the U.S. is somewhat lacking.

Regardless of all that, let’s take a look at Nissan’s latest concept.

2013 Nissan X-Trail n-tec+

2013 Nissan X-Trail n-tec+

The Nissan X-Trail has been a part of the Japanese automaker’s lineup for many years and has always provided that perfect balance between a compact and full-size SUV. In the UK, there are only three trim levels available, the Acenta (base), Limited Edition Platinum and Tekna. Or at least that was true until now…

Nissan has just announced that it is adding a third trim level to the X-Trail lineup that will sit between the Acenta and Tekna, giving the X-Trail the ability to better compete in the SUV realm. The oddly name n-tec+ trim level gives X-Trail buyers a happy medium between the two models, by offering up some additional high-end features not found on the base model.

So what does this trim level bring to the table that you already cannot get in the existing lineup?

Click past the jump to read our full review on the 2013 Nissa X-Trail n-tec+ to find out.

Today, Nissan unveiled the first details on their facelift version for the X-Trail SUV. In Japan the new model will go on sale on July 16th, with prices ranging from 2,239,650 yen to 3,139,500 yen.

The 2011 X-Trail comes with a redesigned front grille, front bumper, and headlights. These new features allow the front of the X-Trail to look a bit more bulky yet with a nice rounded finish that was absent in the previous model. On the interior Nissan added large-size meters for better driver visibility, a vehicle information display system, and a glove compartment with heat-retention and refrigerator functions.

A new addition to the line-up is the new X-TRAIL 20GT model. It features a new 2-liter "M9R" Clean Diesel engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission (with manual shift mode).

A new system available in the 4WD models is the Advanced Hill Descent Control system. This system enables the driver to set his or her desired driving speed within the range from 4km/h to 15km/h, depending on the degree of hill grade.
