New spy photos of the upcoming 2021 Nissan X-Trail reveal the mid-sized SUV will upsize the styling features of the recently revealed 2020 Nissan Juke.
That means we can expect more of the 'V-motion' grille that has dominated the face of Nissan models for some time now, matched to the high-set slim daytime light design that has become popular over the past decade.
The evolved X-Trail and Juke-inspired looks continue through the profile with the glasshouse coming to a sharp point at the D-pillar, while long tail lights wrap around the rear quarter panel and into the tailgate.
Inside is where the revolution occurs, with a wide (if heavily bezelled) tablet-style display set above physical controls for infotainment and air-conditioning.
A full digital display sits nestled behind a new steering wheel design, while, in the centre console, a short and compact gear shifter and rotary drive mode controller (we presume) are all that can be seen through a fabric cover.
Engine options for the new X-Trail will likely vary by market, and it may be that Australia will again be offered a naturally-aspirated 2.5-litre petrol engine.
A CVT automatic transmission is likely, along with front- and all-wheel drive configurations.
The X-Trail (known in the US as the Rogue) is the best-selling SUV in the world, according to data group JATO. The current model has been in production since 2013, having been given a key facelift in 2017.
Watch for more on the new X-Trail to surface in the months ahead, with an unveiling likely to occur sometime in 2020.
