The 2019 Nissan X-Trail facelift is now officially on sale, with four variants and three engine configurations to choose from. The 2.0L and 2.0L Mid both share the MR20DD 2.0 litre four-cylinder petrol engine, making 144 PS and 200 Nm of torque. The 2.5L 4WD makes 171 PS and 233 Nm of torque, whereas the 2.0L Hybrid combines the same MR20DD 2.0 litre engine that’s married to a 41 PS/160 Nm electric motor. Xtronic CVT is standard for all models.

By now, one of the few curiosities you may have is, how do they actually stack up against each other? Is the Hybrid really the quickest of the bunch, as per Nissan’s claims? Well, in the video above, we put all three side by side in a drag race to find out.

To recap, the new X-Trail range is priced from RM134k to RM160k. All models are EEV-certified, and included in the price is a five-year unlimited mileage warranty programme. In the case of the 2.0 Hybrid, it also covers hybrid parts and the lithium-ion battery.
