Automotive News, citing its own sources within the company, said that an updated model will reach American dealers in the fall.

Recall that earlier we published spy shots of the Japanese crossover, which came across with less camouflage. The design of the new Nissan X-Trail is fundamentally different from the model that we know. Judging by the pictures, the car will receive separate optics in the spirit of the compact Nissan Juke, although the lower row of lamps is more traditional than the round ones of Juke. In addition, the crossover will receive a massive V-shaped radiator grille.

The profile of the new crossover is more traditional, and the design of the side window is very similar to the current model. The wings of the car look more prominent, and in the back you can see the lights in the form of a boomerang, as on the new Murano.

But most of the changes will appear in the interior of the new X-Trail. Spy shots show that in the cabin there was a large screen multimedia system with quick access buttons at the bottom and a digital instrument panel screen. In the center is an electronic gear lever made in the form of a modern joystick.

The official debut of the model was to be held in April at the international auto show in New York. However, because of the coronavirus, the event had to be postponed. The work of almost all the brand’s factories was also suspended. Nissan assures that this will not affect the timing of the model’s entry into the market. Experts expect the new product to appear around 2020 as a 2021 model year car and will almost certainly be offered in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions. It is not excluded that under the hood a 2.5-liter in-line four-cylinder engine from Altima will be grounded, the output of which is 188 hp.
