The Nissan X-Trail is an SUV that is available outside of the US. Purportedly, the Rogue is sold in the X-Trail’s place in the United States. We’re hearing rumors that the X-Trail will be available in 2014, and that the vehicle has been spotted undergoing testing in California’s Death Valley. Go here to see photos of the X-Trail in testing in California.
The X-Trail is a softer styled and is based on Nissan’s Resonance Concept, pictured above. (See, we told you that Nissan had plans for Resonance!) Nissan is expected to offer the new X-Trail with a gas-electric hybrid powertrain in addition to its conventional options. It sounds like the new X-Trail will be announced later in 2013, possibly at September’s Frankfurt motor show or November’s Los Angeles auto show, ahead of its early 2014 launch.
The Resonance Concept debuted at the 2013 North American International Auto Show. Nissan News says “With its boldly futuristic aerodynamic styling and fuel-efficient hybrid-electric powertrain, the Nissan Resonance concept proposes an all-new dynamic and edgy design that once again leads the trend for the crossover category.”
The front exterior design shows a V-Motion, which starts from the front grille, moves through the hood and resonates with the iconic boomerang shaped headlights. The body is strengthened by powerful surfaces and provocative lines and is accented by the flow through the car to the kick-up shape around D-Pillar.
Inside, Resonance has an advanced instrument panel floating on a generous console, which keeps the infotainment and communication features close at hand. Technology is graphically layered to give a holographic experience and visual depth is used to separate information in order of importance.
The open glass roof gives passengers a unique panoramic view of the world and floating elements like the roof lining add to the sense of space and airy lightness. The spacious interior atmosphere is enhanced by the sculpted door panels and elegant, deep shape of the center console.Tags:north american international auto show,kick up,hybrid powertrain,conventional options,nissan x trail,resonance,los angeles auto show,death valley,Hawkinson Nissan,infotainment,international auto show,frankfurt motor show,instrument panel,hand technology,north american international auto,Nissan Dealer,boomerang,nissan news
