The all-new fourth-generation Nissan X-Trail has been spotted testing on the road, revealing a more muscular silhouette and new front and rear LED headlight design according to international source.

Starting from the front, there is the familiar Nissan’s V-Motion design language, with a boomerang-shaped light on top which works as a daytime running light (DRL), along with a more conventional horizontal LED headlight in between and finished off with a LED fog lamp below. The rendering below from Carscoops might be a good indication of the final product:

The boomerang LED daytime running light also has turn signal function, but time will tell whether it blinks normally or adopts a stylish sequential motion.

Apart from the seamless horizontal LED tail light, there is not much we can deduce from the rear end as it is still covered in thick camouflage. 

Engine wise, the all-new X-Trail will come with Nissan’s new 1.5-litre four-cylinder variable compression ratio (VCR) engine combined with e-POWER hybrid technology. There are no plans for petrol or diesel variants in Japan and North America, but do expect both petrol and the hybrid version to be introduced in Malaysia.

The current third-generation X-Trail has been on sale in Malaysia since 2015, having undergo major updates in 2019 to keep up with the rest of the competition.

Nissan plans to launch the all-new X-Trail in 2021, but don't expect the model to arrive in Malaysia so soon.
