Nissan releases X-Trail with ProPILOT autonomous drive function in Japan

The Nissan X-Trail today became the brand’s second car available with ProPILOT, Nissan’s autonomous-drive technology that reduces the hassle of stop-and-go highway driving. The updated X-Trail is now on sale at Nissan dealers throughout Japan today. ProPILOT, the car’s main new feature, supports drivers by helping control acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane driving on the highway. The technology has until now only been available in the Nissan Serena, which was fully redesigned in August.

Other features in the updated X-Trail include:

  • Intelligent Park Assist with a function that automatically sets parking positions (factory option on every grade);

  • Intelligent Around View Monitor, which can display a view from all sides on the display screen;

  • Intelligent Rear View Mirror, both available as dealer options (factory option on every grade); and

  • Remote-controlled automatic rear doors (with hands-free/automatic reverse features), which can be unlocked and operated by sliding your foot under the rear bumper.

Safety features include:

  • Intelligent Lane Intervention, which can warn the driver and assists with steering when the vehicle begins to move out of its lane on freeways and arterial roads;

  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which can detect vehicles crossing behind your car and warn you; and

  • High Beam Assist, which can automatically switch between low and high beams when oncoming traffic is detected.
