2019 Nissan X-trail News, Specs, Changes
Known under Rogue name in North America, this crossover is one of the best-selling models in its class. Considering the last-year refresh, it is pretty much certain that 2019 Nissan X-trail will not feature bigger change.
The current model is in the third generation. It came about five years ago. Last year, we saw a mid-cycle refresh, which included numerous novelties. Besides expected visual updates, we have seen numerous novelties in terms of new features, including semi-autonomous driving system ProPilot.
On the other side, engine lineup remained the same and should continue in the same way for the next year as well. Considering all these changes, it seems clear that 2019 X-trail will come pretty much unchanged. The upcoming model will represent the fifth model year, which indicates that redesign should come soon as well. Expect new model to come somewhere late in the year.
2019 Nissan X-trail redesign
As we already mentioned, the 2019 Nissan X-trail will continue in the same way. The recent update has brought numerous changes and the new model will continue in the same way. Last year, we have seen numerous new styling details. Of course, the focus was on the front end, where we saw new front fascia, new bumper with redesigned fog lights, reshaped headlights with new boomerang-like daytime running lights etc. Other areas of the crossover suffered as well, so we can see new wheels design, new exterior colors and much more. Considering all those novelties, it is clear that there is no much to come new for the 2019 Nissan X-trail. Most likely, we will see just some novelties in terms such as new exterior colors etc. The same thing is expected with the interior design, where we should see the same layout, but few new standard features.
2019 Nissan X-trail interior design and features
For the 2019 Nissan X-trail, interior design will most likely remain unchanged. We are about to see the same dashboard layout, although some smaller tweaks like new interior schemes are possible. On the other side, we could see few novelties in terms of new standard features. Still, there aren’t many new things to come. Last year, we saw an introduction of the Nissan’s newest ProPilot system, which is a pretty advanced semi-autonomous driving system which works pretty well in both urban and highway conditions. For the next year, this system probably won’t be updated, but we could see few new safety systems in the base offer, as well as some additional standard features.
The 2019 Nissan X-trail will continue with the same engines for sure. Since this model is offered primarily for the European market, the focus in on diesel engines. Therefore, you have a choice between two oil burners.
The base version comes with a 1.6-liter unit which is good for about 130 horses. On the other side, optional 2.0-liter diesel engine seems like a much better choice. Both engines could be paired with either six-speed manual or CVT. Base models feature FWD layout, while the 4×4 version is optional.
For those petrol lovers, there is a 1.6-liter turbo inline-four unit, which delivers around 165 horsepower. This engine comes in pair with 6-manual transmission and FWD layout.
2019 Nissan X-trail release date and price
Considering that we are not going to see bigger changes for the next year, it is pretty much for sure that 2019 Nissan X-trail will come somewhere late in the year, somewhere in December.
We also don’t expect changes in price, so base models should go around 24.000 dollars. On the other side, top-range models could easily go over 40.000 dollars.
