India-bound 2023 Nissan X-Trail goes official: Check features and price
Japanese automaker Nissan has launched the 2023 iteration of the X-Trail in the Australian market with a starting price tag of AUD 36,750 (approximately Rs. 20.28 lakh). The SUV is offered in four trim levels: ST, ST-L, Ti, and Ti-L. To recall, the brand had showcased the capable four-wheeler in India in October and has plans to bring it to our shores in 2023.
Why does this story matter?
- Nissan made its debut in India in 2005. However, the brand was unable to capture the market until the launch of the popular compact SUV, the Magnite in December 2020.
- After seeing a warm response for SUVs on our shores, the brand is now evaluating other capable models such as Qashqai, Juke, and the X-Trail.
- When launched, the X-Trail will heat up the competition.
