A sharp increase has been witnessed in sales of the latest edition of the Nissan X-TRAIL car model in the UAE.
Al-Masaood Automobiles, distributors for Nissan in Abu Dhabi, Al-Ain, and the western region, have reported first quarter sales already hitting 89 percent of total sales of the X-TRAIL model in 2022.
The new Nissan X-Trail incorporates major changes in both the exterior and interior designs and the inclusion of technology and safety features normally reserved for luxury vehicles.
Bachir Gemayel, sales and marketing director at Al-Masaood Automobiles, said: “Our customers cited the new bold look and the premium features of the all-new Nissan X-TRAIL, which weighed heavily on their consideration to purchase the model.
“As this model is geared toward families, our customers were also comforted with the new high-tech safety features of the vehicle.”
The model is popular among Asian expats in Abu Dhabi.
“As customer experience is a priority for us, and noting the increase in interest in the model, we ensured that the all-new Nissan X-TRAIL was readily available in our showrooms across Abu Dhabi, Al-Ain, and the western region,” said Gemayel.
“The news of its availability definitely contributed to the model’s success, especially as it responds to the pent-up demand for this popular Nissan model, in addition to our relentless drive to offer a quality car purchase and ownership journey,” he added.
The exterior of the new Nissan X-TRAIL is impressive and includes recognizable Nissan features like the V-motion grille and floating roof design while its bigger-opening rear door apertures, which open up to 85 degrees for easier rear access and egress, accentuate the SUV’s appeal
Meanwhile, Nappa leather-embellished seats with 3D diamond quilting, which is only offered on the top-of-the-line SL grade, highlight a premium upgrade to the interior.
The new Nissan X-TRAIL is powered by a brand-new 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine. Compared to its predecessor, it produces 181 horsepower and 244 Nm of torque for more confident overtaking and effortless acceleration.
With Nissan Safety Shield 360, a collection of active safety features from Nissan Intelligent Mobility that includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and high beam assist, the SUV has become the safest X-TRAIL ever.
Test drives for the model are available across Al-Masaood Automobiles showrooms.
