For an extra £599 ($780), your dog can have a barking good time.
Every dog has its day, and in the case of Nissan’s new "Paw Pack" option, that day is today. The aptly named package comes available on any X-Trail SUV in the U.K, and draws heavy inspiration from the X-Trail 4Dogs concept (and the Rogue Dogue concept) that was first introduced in February. These new family and dog-friendly add-ons help transform the X-Trail into the ultimate road trip and adventure vehicle.
Available to buyers in the U.K., the accessory kit comes with a number of new elements, including a dog guard trunk separator, and a ramp for smaller or less mobile dogs for easy entry into the trunk. Along with the two features already mentioned, the Paw Pack also includes a machine-washable dog bed, a non-spill water bowl, and a trunk liner to protect the X-Trail’s upholstery from any unforeseen… messes.
"We’re delighted to release this innovative Paw Pack as we believe strongly that pets are important members of the family, as well as excellent traveling companions for those outdoors adventures," said Grand Richards, X-Trail Product Manager.
"The X-TRAIL Paw Pack lets our beloved companions travel with all the comfort and convenience we’d expect, and we look forward to helping our customers buy the perfect car for all their family — including their dogs."
The Nissan X-Trail can be had for £23,385 ($30,455) in the U.K., and the Paw Pack tacks on an extra £599 ($780). Even without the optional pet-friendly package, the Nissan X-Trail comes loaded with standard features like hands-free functionality for the electric tailgate, adaptive LED headlights, new 18-inch wheels, and a handful of new exterior colors.
In the cabin, the company has also introduced its new ProPILOT semi-autonomous driving system, which is said to "control the steering, acceleration, and braking in a single lane on highways during heavy traffic congestion and high-speed cruising." That same technology will be available on the new Nissan Leaf when it debuts later in the week.
Nissan X-Trail Paw Pack
The Nissan X-TRAIL is built for family adventures and this includes the four-legged members of the family too. To showcase the X-TRAIL’s family- and dog-friendly credentials, an optional accessory kit designed especially for dogs is now available on all X-TRAIL models via Nissan retailers.
The ‘Paw Pack’ transforms the world’s best-selling SUV into the perfect car for a beloved pooch, as well as all the family.
Priced at £599 RRP, the Paw Pack accessory kit comprises six carefully chosen components to transform the boot space of the X-TRAIL into a comfortable and welcoming travel space for canine family members to relax in after a long walk.
There’s a dog guard boot separator, and a ramp for smaller or less mobile dogs to use when getting back in after a walk.
There’s also a luxurious machine washable dog bed, a non-spill water bowl and a boot liner to protect the X-TRAIL’s upholstery from muddy paws, and a tidy for storing leads, treats and waste bags.
