Nissan says the X-TREMER is being launched for buyers looking to make the most of the cooler weather of the Middle East winter.

The special edition X-TRAIL spin-off has all-wheel drive and a 2.5l engine.

The car-maker added that it has also been updated “with a bespoke exterior design for a dominating presence on the road.”

This includes an altered front and rear profile that has a new bumper ’embellished with a dark grey garnish’ while the side profile has been updated with new 18” black alloy wheels and a dark grey side sill. It is also topped by black roof rails and new side door mirrors.

“As temperatures start to drop across the region with the holiday season ahead, outdoor and adventure activities will be on the rise,” said Thierry Sabbagh, managing director, Nissan Middle East.

The X-TREMER also deploys desirable Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) features such as the Intelligent Around View Monitor and Intelligent 4×4 that, “add practicality for owners and make life on the road even safer”.

Sabbagh added: “The launch of our special edition X-TREMER, a five or seven-seat configuration crossover, perfectly ties in with adventure-loving families who are in search of a car that blends in with their outdoor personalities.

“Globally, the X-TRAIL has been dubbed as the world’s best-selling SUV, and with the X-TREMER now available in our market, we are confident that it will become a regional favourite too.”
