Revised X-Trail to cost from 23,995

The revised X-Trail 4x4 will cost from 23,995, Nissan has announced.

Thats a price rise of just over 340 compared to the previous model, and the entry-level car continues with the 171bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine and Acenta trim. Standard equipment includes body-coloured electric door mirrors, tinted glass, automatic headlights and wipers, front foglights and alloy wheels.

The Tekna model now costs 27,495 again a rise of a few hundred pounds and adds folding door mirrors, xenon headlamps, a panoramic sunroof and leather seats. You also get a sat-nav system with a music server and USB port, as well as a rear-view camera.

In addition to the updated exterior styling and improved interior, the revisions to the car include a new manual gearbox, which has helped to improve fuel economy and cut emissions on models with the 171bhp engine.

With their CO2 emissions falling from 198- to 168g/km, these models have dropped from VED Band J to H (saving 170 in annual road tax), while their company car tax liability falls from 32% to 26%, and fuel economy improves from 38.2- to 44.2mpg.

At the same time, Nissan has revised the automatic gearbox that comes with the 148bhp version of the 2.0-litre engine. This helps to reduce its emissions from 216g/km to 188g/km, as well as improving its fuel economy from 34.9mpg to 39.8.

The revised versions of the X-Trail are on sale now, with the first customers expected to take delivery of their cars in October.
