X-Trail Impul_Front

Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has officially launched the Nissan X-Trail Tuned by Impul, a new offering for those who desire something a little sportier than the standard seven-seater SUV. The Impul X-Trail package is offered for both the 2.5L 4WD and 2.0L 2WD models.

The Impul makeover includes an aerokit made up of newly designed front and rear bumper spoilers, side skirts, door visors, and LED stainless steel kick plates. The 17-inch wheels have also been swapped out for 18-inch Impul Aura SX-50 alloys that get a chrome bronze and gloss black finish. The wheels are wrapped with Continental MaxContact MC5 tyres as well. Additionally, the Impul X-Trail rides 30 mm lower than before thanks to Impul sport springs.

Prices start at RM149,715.05 (OTR with insurance) for the Nissan X-Trail 2.0L 2WD Impul, a premium of RM8,648.04 over the standard 2.0L model (RM141,067.01). The 2.5L 4WD Impul meanwhile, will set you back RM172,516.42 (OTR with insurance), RM8,620.48 more than the standard 2.5L model (RM163,895.94).

However, if you’re looking to purchase the Impul parts individually, the total cost for the whole Impul makeover will amount to RM15,900. The full list of parts and their respective prices are as follows:

  • Aerokit (including front and rear bumper spoilers, side skirts) – RM5,300.
  • Impul sport springs – RM1,060
  • 18-inch Impul Aura SX-50 alloy wheels (set of four) – RM 5,830
  • Continental MaxContact MC5 tyres (set of four) – RM2,756
  • Door visors – RM424
  • LED stainless steel kick plates – RM530

Keep in mind that the Impul package doesn’t involve any mechanical changes under the hood of both X-Trail models. Therefore, the 2.0 litre MR20DD direct injection mill is still good for 144 PS at 6,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. As for the 2.5 litre, the QR25DE-k2 engine provides 171 PS at 6,000 rpm and 233 Nm at 4,000 rpm for output numbers. Both engines are paired to Nissan’s Xtronic CVT gearbox.
