2017 Nissan XTrail UAE
Long considered as one of the gold standards in its class, the 2017 Nissan X-Trail is as great as ever. In fact, it is considered as one of the most popular cars in the streets of UAE. With its abundant space, superior versatility, and the perfect combination of on-road and off-road capability, this midsize SUV still has what it takes to stay on top of its class.
Now entering its third generation, the 2017 version of the X-Trail has received a significant upgrade in the looks department. It departs from the boxy look that came to define the X-Trail’s design language for the past decade. While the 2017 X-Trail looks different compared to its past versions, it is still very handsome-looking. The V-Motion grille, daytime running lights, and LED taillights spice up the exterior.

The interior of the 2017 X-Trail is impressively roomy. It can comfortably provide seating for 5 full-sized adults, 7 if the third-row seats are in use (though the third-row seats are quite cramped). Without the third-row seat option, boot space is at 565 liters, a value considered to be best in its class. Both front and back seats are comfortable, and trims used in the interior are of good quality. For 2017, only minor updates are found in the interior; a smaller three-spoke steering wheel, a soft-touch dash pad, and tan leather caps off the changes.
The safety features of the Nissan X-Trail have been upgraded for the 2017 model year at no extra cost. A new safety feature, Autonomous Emergency Braking, is a standard feature. For higher trim options, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and active cruise control are available. Other features available for higher models include a 7-inch touchscreen, power seats, larger wheels, and an upgraded sound system.
The only engine option available for the Nissan X-Trail in the UAE is Nissan’s trusty 2.5 liter 4-cylinder petrol engine. Its maximum output is rated at 171 horsepower and 226Nm of torque. This provides more than enough acceleration and pulls for most purposes. Front-wheel drive comes standard in this vehicle, with a 4x4 system available as an upgrade. The motor is mated to a CVT automatic transmission that delivers power smoothly. The suspension is set at the softer side, capable of handling even the roughest of bumps with ease.
The 2017 Nissan X-Trail once again sets itself apart from the midsize SUV competition. Its superior versatility and abundance of standard and optional features make it a souped-up ride that provides great value for money.
