The Nissan X-Trail is the perfect crossover for family adventures, and a new special version pack boosts that to a thrilling new level. An unusual extra feature has been added to the car’s specification, allowing customers to create lasting memories of their exploits.
On sale now, the Nissan X-Trail X-Scape comes with a compact and lightweight drone as standard. It’s equipped with advanced ‘follow me’ GPS and visual tracking technology*, so users on the move can capture amazing photos and video footage of their days out with their drone following them autonomously.
That could be in their Nissan X-Trail, or on foot, bicycle, canoe, skateboard and any other suitable mode of transport.
The drone – a Parrot Bebop 2 weighing just 500g – features Nissan branding and comes with a Parrot Skycontroller 2 remote control and Parrot Cockpitglasses headset. These allow First Person View (FPV) functionality via a live feed from the 14 megapixel camera, for a truly immersive experience and unique bird’s eye views of adventure locations.
The drone’s exceptional manoeuvrability and digitally stabilised camera create a fantastic filming platform, for great results over a flight time of up to 25 minutes. For ultimate portability, the drone and supporting equipment come with a bespoke backpack-style padded storage case.
The X-Trail X-Scape Special Version pack is available across the X-Trail range on all N-Vision and Tekna versions as a £500 option, which can be specified when ordering via Nissan retailers.
X-Trail X-Scape special version packs also feature NissanConnect infotainment system with satellite navigation for hassle-free journeys to adventurous destinations. The panoramic sunroof with one-touch electric sunshade means the views should be spectacular, and roof rails allow bikes and canoes to be carried with ease.
Both five and seven-seat interiors of the Nissan X-Trail can be specified and premium X-Trail floor mats are also included. Planned production of the X-Trail X-Scape special version is approximately 1,200 units across Europe, with 200 units allocated for the UK.
