Nis­san’s ex­cit­ing cross­over range im­presses auto en­thu­si­asts

Muscat Daily - - AUTO NEWS -

Known for its dynamic per­for­mances, Nis­san’s cross­over range has been im­press­ing auto en­thu­si­asts through its smart styling, spa­cious and ef­fort­less to drive features.

An of­fi­cial from Nis­san Oman, from the house of Suhail Bah­wan Au­to­mo­biles (SBA), said, “Our cross­over range such as Nis­san Kicks, Pathfinder 3.5l and X-Trail are hugely pop­u­lar among cus­tomers be­cause they find it prac­ti­cal, they like the de­sign and space and the fact that it is packed with tech­nol­ogy. They are es­pe­cially pop­u­lar with young and first-time buyers who are early adopters to tech­nol­ogy and who ap­pre­ci­ate the way th­ese ve­hi­cles can sim­plify ur­ban driv­ing.”

All-new Nis­san Kicks

The all-new Nis­san Kicks was de­vel­oped with the aim of de­liv­er­ing the most in­no­va­tive, stylish and func­tional cross­over in its class. The car’s ad­vanced chas­sis con­trol tech­nol­ogy al­lows it to deal with the rough and tum­ble of the ur­ban jun­gle, while the driv­ers will love the ease of park­ing thanks to the Around View Mon­i­tor (AVM) and the amaz­ing func­tion­al­ity of the sev­eninch colour touch­screen.

The new­comer is aimed squarely at ur­ban driv­ing en­vi­ron­ments and com­bines a ro­bust ex­te­rior and el­e­vated driv­ing po- sition with com­pact di­men­sions for ag­ile per­for­mance and ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity. The body features an ad­vanced aero­dy­namic de­sign, which op­ti­mises fuel con­sump­tion and min­imises noise.

Nis­san In­tel­li­gent Mo­bil­ity uses smart, rel­e­vant tech­nol­ogy to make the driver’s life eas­ier while also mak­ing ad­vances to­wards Nis­san’s long term goal of zero emis­sion and zero fa­tal­ity mo­tor­ing. The In­tel­li­gent Mo­bil­ity tech­nol­ogy present in Kicks aims to re­duce stress for driv­ers through in­no­va­tions such as the AVM and the Mov­ing Ob­ject De­tec­tion sys­tem (MOD). Us­ing four cam­eras placed at the front and rear of the car and in both door mir­rors, AVM cre­ates a bird’s eye 360-de­gree view of the car, which can be dis­played on the cen­tral mon­i­tor and used as a park­ing aid. When the MOD sys­tem de­tects a mov­ing ob­ject – a pedes­trian, for ex­am­ple – a warn­ing is sounded to alert the driver to the haz­ard and pre­vent a po­ten­tial ac­ci­dent.

Tech­nol­ogy-lov­ing Nis­san Kicks own­ers will rel­ish the con­ve­nience and sim­plic­ity of the suite of sys­tems that are ac­ces­si­ble via the cen­trally mounted seven-inch colour touch­screen. Th­ese func­tions in­clude nav­i­ga­tion, au­dio and Blue­tooth phone con­nec­tions. Com­ple­ment­ing the touch­screen, and ide­ally lo­cated in front of the driver, a fur­ther screen in the main clus­ter of dials re­lays in­for­ma­tion from the on-board drive com­puter, au­dio sys­tem and nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems, as well as dis­play­ing warn­ings. Ve­hi­cle set­tings can be eas­ily ad­justed us­ing the four-way se­lec­tor on the steer­ing wheel.

In terms of its vis­ual ap­peal, Kicks features es­tab­lished Nis­san de­sign sig­na­tures such as the V-mo­tion grille which dom­i­nates the car’s front end. Also present are the boomerang head and tail­lights, and the ‘float­ing’ coupé-style roof with a ‘wrap-around vi­sor’ look to the wind­screen and side glass.

The spa­cious in­te­rior too is in­stantly recog­nis­able as a Nis­san de­sign, thanks to the ‘glid­ing wing’ shape stretch­ing the width of the dash­board.

Nis­san Pathfinder 3.5l - Dynamic de­sign

The Nis­san Pathfinder of­fers a full com­ple­ment of tech­nol­ogy and features that of­fer auto en­thu­si­asts a per­fect com­bi­na­tion of per­fect off-road ca­pa­bil­ity (iAuto 4WD sys­tem), dynamic de­sign, class-lead­ing com­fort, a re­ward­ing driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and un­matched in­te­rior com­fort for a per­fect fam­ily drive. The ve­hi­cle comes with 3.5l V6 En­gine, 254hp along with 20’’ al­loy wheels, Re­mote En­gine Starter, Rear View Mon­i­tor with Bird’s Eye View and Fam­ily En­ter­tain­ment Sys­tem.

The Pathfinder 3.5l comes with thought­ful tech­nol­ogy through­out the in­te­rior, start­ing with Nis­san’s ad­vanced, clas­sex­clu­sive Around View Mon­i­tor, which pro­vides the driver a vir­tual 360-de­gree im­age of the area around the ve­hi­cle. The in­stru­ment panel in­cludes Ad­vanced Drive-As­sist Dis­play (stan­dard on ev­ery model), features a four-inch LCD colour dis­play and utilises 3D-ef­fect graphics to re­lay key in­for­ma­tion right in front of the driver.

Nis­san X-Trail - Thought­ful tech­nol­ogy

Nis­san X-Trail comes with a 2.5l four-cylin­der en­gine, mated to a Con­tin­u­ously Vari­able Trans­mis­sion (CVT) and of­fers class- lead­ing com­fort, thought­ful tech­nol­ogy and a re­ward­ing driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with a com­pletely re­fur­bished in­te­rior and ex­te­rior styling.

The com­pact ve­hi­cle not only pro­vides ca­pa­bil­ity with spa­cious seat­ing for seven, and an in­tu­itive 4 Wheel Drive Sys­tem, but it also re­sets the stan­dard for the seg­ment with an un­prece­dented level of pre­mium style, com­fort, fuel econ­omy and thought­ful tech­nol­ogy. With a 170hp, the Nis­san X-Trail comes in five and seven seater, 4x4 Vari­ants. The ve­hi­cle features safety op­tions like dual airbags, ABS + EBD +BA + VDC and Brake LSD.
