Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has launched the X-Tremer and Aero Edition packages for the X-Trail, with both being made available for all variants of the seven-seat SUV. These packages add on a number of accessories for more visual presence, and are fitted from the factory.
Let’s start with the X-Tremer, which is offered in three two-tone paint schemes – Imperial Red, Brilliant White and Tungsten Silver – all with a black roof, roof rails and rear spoiler. The black theme extends to the V-motion grille, 17-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels, door mirrors and the added Tomei aerokit.
Meanwhile, the Aero Edition gets the same gloss black 17-inch wheels and Tomei package as the X-Tremer, although the latter is finished in silver instead. Additionally, the model is available in three single-tone exterior finishes, including Diamond Black, Imperial Umber and Titanium Olive.
On the inside, both feature brown Nappa leather upholstery for the seats, along with a leatherette dashboard, knee pad and armrest.
The X-Tremer and Aero Edition are offered in four variants, including the 2.0L 2WD and 2.0L 2WD Mid that feature a MR20DD 2.0 litre NA four-cylinder engine with 144 PS at 6,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. Higher up the range, there’s the 2.5L 4WD with a QR25DE 2.5 litre four-pot providing 171 PS at 6,000 rpm and 233 Nm at 4,000 rpm.
At the very top is the 2.0L Hybrid, which pairs a MR20DD with a hybrid system that consists of an electric motor rated at 41 PS and 160 Nm, a 0.9 kWh lithium-ion battery and Nissan’s Intelligent Dual Clutch Control (clutch mechanism between the engine and CVT transmission). All engines are paired with an X-Tronic CVT with seven virtual gears.
In terms of pricing, the X-Tremer in 2.0L 2WD guise goes for RM140,888 on-the-road without insurance, while the 2.0L 2WD Mid retails for RM152,888, the 2.5L 4WD for RM160,888 and the 2.0L Hybrid for RM166,888.
