Called ‘Platinum’, just 200 units are on offer, with each one boasting additional equipment and glamour not seen on any of the other models in the range.
The front and rear of the car gets extra style with the fitment of additional protection plates located below the bumpers. The side is treated to chrome side steps and chrome door protection mouldings.
On the inside the Platinum features leather upholstery and electrically-adjustable, heated front seats. A sophisticated new touch screen communication unit features satellite navigation, iPod connectivity and Bluetooth.
A reversing camera, with the image transmitted onto a small screen incorporated into the rear view mirror, also features.
Powering the Platinum is the X-TRAIL’s advanced 2.0dCi diesel engine with a choice of either manual or automatic transmissions. The manual produces a healthy 170bhp and yet can return an average of 44.1mpg.
Customers will be impressed by the prices too. The Platinum costs less than the Tekna version on which it’s based, starting at £29,180 for the manual and £30,560 for the automatic.
