Nissan X-Trail 4Dogs the pawfect car for family
ALMOST EVERY DOG OWNER considers their pet to be part of the family,
research has revealed. Furthermore, the vast majority say they would buy
a new car which boasts more dog-friendly features.
To meet their demands, Nissan has unveiled a unique new model the
X-Trail 4Dogs concept demonstrating that its flagship crossover
is the perfect car for family adventures, particularly ones involving
those with four legs.
The X-Trail 4Dogs is the ultimate dog-friendly crossover, with a boot
that's been completely transformed to provide a bespoke travel space for
up to two animals. The crossover's luggage compartment has been turned
into a dog haven, 445 litres in size with a suite of innovative new features.
Each has been carefully selected to benefit either the dog or the owner.
For example, the Nissan X-Trail 4Dogs has everything required to keep
canines clean and comfortable after a long, muddy walk. Wash them off
with the 360° pull-out shower, then swap for the dog dryer which delivers
a jet of air to the wet fur.
Pull out the slide-away ramp so the dogs can walk up into the bay
allowing owners to stay completely mud-free then turn on the integrated
drying system which supplies warm air into the boot space.
The dogs can settle down into the luxurious bed, help themselves to a
drink from the no-spill water bowl or take a snack from the 'smart' dog
Safety in transit is taken care via a clip-on harness hook. As they prepare
to head home, driver and front seat passenger can easily keep an eye on
their pets using the innovative 'dog-cam' technology that has been ingeniously
integrated into the X-Trail's NissanConnect infotainment system, allowing
owner and dog to see each other via the seven-inch dashboard display and
a new 10-inch LCD screen installed into the boot. The owner can also talk
to the dog via an audio link to keep it calm.
Attachments for the shower and dryer are stored in a new pull-out utility
drawer, easily accessible at the front of the boot. New side compartments
have been added to ensure the area remains clutter-free, and can be used
for storing treats, waste bags and a lead.
The X-Trail 4Dogs also features a dog guard above the rear seats
a genuine Nissan accessory available for purchase.
Finally, the whole boot has been upholstered in premium wipe-clean leather
so any stray dirt or pet hair can easily be cleaned or removed.
Nissan engineered the X-Trail 4Dogs concept following a survey of more
than 1,300 dog owners. It was carried out by The Kennel Club, the UK’s
largest and best-known organisation for promoting dog health and welfare.
The X-Trail is the largest of the three models in Nissan's award-winning
crossover range, which also includes the Qashqai and Juke. The Nissan
X-Trail is available with either five or seven spacious seats, all of
which fold to create a completely flat load space of up to 1,982 litres.
Every five-seater version comes with an innovative Luggage Board System
as standard, allowing owners to adjust the boot with shelves and dividers
to create 18 different cargo-carrying configurations for everyday versatility.
FROM ACCLAIMED DIRECTOR Michael Dudok de Wit, and produced by the legendary
Academy Award-winning animation house Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away,
My Neighbor Totoro), comes a magical castaway story that combines
beauty, nature, and mystery.
Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated feature, The Red Turtle
is a stunning and touching animation about the transience of life
told through the story of a man shipwrecked on a tropical island inhabitated
only by turtles, crabs and birds, the film recounts the milestones in
the life of a human being.
The Red Turtle will be in cinemas from 26 May.
