Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has introduced the Nissan X-Trail Tuned by Impul, which as its name suggests, kits up the third-gen SUV with a number of Impul enhancement items. The pack contains elements seen on the Impul X-Trail showcased at the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon.

Dress-up bits consist of an Impul Aerokit, which introduces dual tone front and rear aero bumper aprons as well as side skirts. The front grille also gets gloss black cladding, and a split mounted rear spoiler, also finished in gloss black, makes its way on.

The Tuned by Impul T32 facelift rides on 18-inch Impul Aura SX-50 multispoke wheels, which are fitted with 235/55 profile Continental ContiMaxContact MC6 tyres. The only mechanical change comes in the form of an Impul Sports Spring set to improve handling response. Apart from the expressive exterior and performance parts, the variant gets new Maroon Nappa leather upholstery for the interior.

The new Nissan X-Trail Tuned by IMPUL package is available for the 2.0L Hybrid, 2.5L 4WD, 2.0L 2WD MID and 2.0L 2WD versions of the SUV, the set adding RM11,000 to the cost. The sales tax exempt, on-the-road prices (without insurance, Peninsular Malaysia) of the Tuned by Impul versions are:
