Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has announced the introduction of the Nissan X-Trail Aero Edition. Both variants of the T32 sold locally, the 2.0L 2WD and 2.5L 4WD, are available in as this specially-kitted version.

The SUV gets dressed up with aero parts from Japanese aftermarket specialist Tomei Motor, and the package adds on a front and rear aero bumpers, side skirts and gloss black five-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels. The interior also gets snapped up with brown Nappa leather upholstery.

No changes otherwise, the third-gen X-Trail – which made its local debut in January 2015 – being powered by a 2.5 litre unit in its range-topping 4WD form, the QR25DE-k2 offering 171 PS at 6,000 rpm and 233 Nm at 4,000 rpm in the way of output.

Meanwhile, the 2WD variant is powered by a 2.0 litre Twin CVTC MR20DD direct injection unit, which has 144 PS at 6,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. Both mills are paired with an Xtronic CVT gearbox, which features an ECO mode as well as a seven-speed manual mode.

The X-Trail Aero Edition is priced at RM141,428 for the 2.0L 2WD variant and RM163,616 for the 2.5L 4WD model (both on-the-road, without insurance). The SUV comes with a seven-year, unlimited mileage warranty, whilst the factory-fitted accessories get a three-year or 100,000 km warranty (whichever comes first).

In conjunction with Tan Chong ‘s 60th anniversary, ETCM is offering attractive deals on the X-Trail Aero Edition – buyers can pick from savings of up to RM6,000 or a Raya rebate package of RM4,500 with a RM1 promotion for an eight-inch Multimedia Navigator.
