We now have the first revealing photos of the Malaysian-spec 2015 Nissan X-Trail. This base 2.0 litre, 2WD model was spotted at JPJ Putrajaya by reader Akmal Azmi, giving us an early peek at what we’ll be getting soon, both inside and out.

First up, it looks like the more affordable 2.0 litre variant will lose out on the LED projector headlamps we’ve seen on international models, but other than that, it looks very fine indeed. Foglamps, LED daytime running lights (or positioning lamps), 17-inch wheels plus chrome door handles and silver roof rails are all there.

A closer look also reveals that it will get keyless entry (button on the front door handles), fabric seats, cruise control and dual-zone automatic climate control with rear air-con vents. You can tell that it’s a 2WD model by the lack of a 4×4 rotary selector on the centre console.

The third-generation Nissan X-Trail was revealed in Europe last year, before being shown at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. It was then revealed that we’ll be getting locally-assembled (CKD) versions of the new SUV soon, but not before it went on sale in Indonesia and Thailand first. As for pricing, how does under RM150k sound?
