- Sales of X-Trail continue to rise across the GCC, with 53 per cent growth in the UAE
Nissan’s highly acclaimed X-Trail crossover has well and truly got a foothold on the Middle East marketplace just two years after the launch of the third generation. The X-Trail model was introduced in 2000 and, since then, has forged an enviable reputation as a vehicle perfectly in tune with modern life – something that buyers across the GCC highly appreciate.
In the year to date, Nissan can announce that UAE sales of the X-Trail between April and June 2016 have risen 53 per cent when compared with the same period in 2015. Even more impressive is the 54 per cent growth experienced across the GCC as a whole. The all-round safety features of the X-Trail, such as the Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Moving Object Detection (MOD) and Around View Monitor (AVM), is proving to outsell many of its rivals.
“The X-Trail has become widely hailed as a vehicle that perfectly encapsulates the spirit of adventure that many people in this region possess,” said Samir Cherfan, Managing Director of Nissan Middle East. “Its popularity is not a surprise because nothing else is able to match the active lifestyles of our customers – it is equally at home on the dunes or city streets and offers exceptional value for money along with refinement and remarkable levels of built in safety and practicality. “
“These new sales figures prove Nissan’s ‘Innovation that Excites’ approach to making cars has captured the imaginations of GCC buyers, who are some of the most demanding and discerning in the world.”
The X-Trail features fresh, modern styling tailored to the needs of anyone with a lust for life. Its interior is uncluttered and elegantly design, as well as being entirely practical with easily cleanable surfaces. Power comes from a punchy 2.5-litre petrol engine mated to a CVT transmission. The X-Trail can be specified with switchable four-wheel drive, is available with up to seven seats and prices start at AED 81,750.
