Last month, Nissan Philippines launched the refreshed X-Trail compact crossover.
The facelifted and upgraded third-generation X-Trail is the first Nissan vehicle in the country to be integrated with the largest range of available advanced Intelligent Mobility technologies.
These features, plus several other changes inside and out, should make the new X-Trail one tough contender in the compact crossover segment.
Cebu Daily News got to check out the top-spec X-Trail through Nissan Cebu Distributors, Inc., and here are some of the features we liked in the latest edition of the crossover:

Intelligent Mobility

These include an Around View Monitor that provides drivers with a 360-degree perspective for easier navigation, Moving Object Detection that sends a visual and audible alert when there’s movement around the vehicle, Blind Spot Warning that detects objects in the driver’s blind spot, Forward Collision Warning and Intelligent Emergency Braking that sends a visual and auditory warning, and applies an emergency break to avoid collisions, Rear Cross Traffic Alert that alerts the driver from unseen vehicles while reversing, and the 4×4-I System that automatically adjusts power distribution to give drivers full control of the vehicle as they take on challenging road conditions.

Styling inside and out

It boasts of a new front fascia with integrated fog lamps, bumper, a longer version of the Nissan “V-Motion” grille, and revised headlights with LED signature Daytime Running Lights. There’s also a set of 19-inch wheels, a fin-type antenna, and a newly integrated sun roof that runs all the way to the second row. Also new are the door and instrument panel finishers, shift knob design, center console and the console lid.

Auto tailgate

Adding to the convenience is the motion-activated tailgate that allows customers to access the rear compartment with ease. It can be opened remotely or with a swipe of the foot under the rear bumpers.
