Nissan adds entry-level DIG-T 163 petrol model to X-Trail range
Priced at £21,995, the new 1.6 litre DIG-T 161bhp model is £1,460 lower than the current dCi 130 entry grade model.
Available to order now, with the first deliveries expected next month, the X-Trail’s new 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit brings official combined fuel consumption for Visia and Acenta models of 45.6mpg (44.1mpg for n-tec and Tekna), while CO2 emissions are 145g/km (149g/km for n-tec and Tekna). In terms of performance, the new X-Trail DIG-T 163 can sprint from 0-62mph in 9.7 seconds and has a top speed of 124mph.
Already seen in the Qashqai range, the new DIG-T 163 engine is the most powerful engine in the new X-Trail range, and sits alongside the existing dCi 127bhp unit.
The new model is offered in two-wheel drive form only with a six-speed manual transmission fitted as standard. It also comes with the Start/Stop ignition system.
The new DIG-T 163 engine is available across all standard X-Trail grades, with Acenta, n-tec and Tekna offering seven seater options.
