Nissan hosted the world debut of the all-new X-Trail today at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. With muscular lines and a wide array of modern technologies, it draws inspiration from the Japanese automaker's other CUVs, namely the Qashqai, Juke, and Murano. Sales will begin in July 2014.

The North American version, called the Nissan Rogue, also made its world debut. Built on the new, jointly developed Nissan/Renault Common Module Family (CMF) platform architecture, it is projected to be available in 190 countries worldwide.

The next-gen X-Trail/Rogue sports boomerang-shaped taillights, LED daytime running lights, and available 19'' alloy wheels. The rear side doors open to almost 80 degrees, far wider than normal.

It's also the first Nissan model to benefit from the latest generation of the NissanConnect infotainment system, which includes a large, 7'' colour touch screen, smartphone connectivity, a wide range of apps covering music, social media, and entertainment, as well as a secondary 5'' TFT colour display that provides driving data such as average and actual speeds, navigation turn-by-turn instructions, audio content, traffic sign recognition, eco-driving tips, and torque distribution settings in 4WD mode.

Pricing and trim details will be announced at a later date.
