Nissan have released a special edition of their 4x4 X-TRAIL, inspired by jewellery and offering a more luxurious toughness than the rest of the range.
When we hear the word Platinum, we think of the expensive metal known for its toughness and luxury. This is the idea behind a new special edition of Nissan’s X-TRAIL 4x4. Called the Platinum Edition, it aims to encompass the image of toughness and combine it with that of luxury to offer customers a unique blend.
True to its name, the Platinum Edition has features which are not available on any other models in the X-TRAIL range, and also has a more glamorous feel to it. The front and rear of the vehicle gets extra protection and style with the fitment of additional protection plates located below the bumpers. Chrome side steps, door protectors and door handles also feature on the outside.
On the inside the Platinum Edition has leather electrically-adjustable, heated front seats. A sophisticated new touch screen communication unit features satellite navigation, direct iPod control and Bluetooth. There’s also a reversing camera, with the image transmitted onto a small screen incorporated into the rear view mirror. Very James Bond indeed!
Under the bonnet is the X-TRAIL’s advanced 2.0dCi diesel engine with a choice of either manual or automatic transmissions. The manual produces a 173PS and yet can return an average of 44.1mpg.
But unlike its metallic inspiration, the X-TRAIL Platinum Edition is not overly expensive. In fact it costs less than the Tekna version on which it’s based, starting at £29,180 for the manual and £30,560 for the automatic. But quite like the metal, the X-TRAIL Platinum Edition is rare; only 200 models are to be made.
