Platinum Edition Nissan X-Trail plus finance offer

- Advertisement -

Nissan is adding a new limited edition Platinum Edition SV specification to its mid-size X-Trail SUV range.

The Platinum Edition SV is a £2,000 upgrade to the existing N-Connecta models. Nissan claims that the cost of the additional extras would normally add up to more than £2,800, resulting in a nominal £828 “saving” for customers.

For your extra £2K, the Platinum Edition is distinguished from regular N-Connecta models by silver ‘styling plates’ (faux bash plates) all the way around the car, chrome mirror caps and boot trim, and front bumper overriders.

The Platinum Edition models also get alloy ‘sports’ pedals and footrest, 18-inch metallic black alloy wheels, and a double USB port for rear-seat passengers to charge their devices.

Finance offer to accompany the extra trinkets

In addition, Nissan X-Trail Platinum Edition models will be eligible for an additional £750 deposit contribution if you take out a personal contract purchase (PCP) car finance agreement with Nissan Finance.

Nissan is currently offering 0% APR representative on PCP finance for all X-Trail models with a £1,000 deposit contribution, along with two years’ free servicing. Alternatively, you can have a larger deposit contribution of £2,500 but the interest rate increases to 3.49% APR representative.

Over a typical three-year PCP agreement, the difference between the two offers only works out to about £500, so customers should look carefully at which option suits there needs better.

What’s the fine print on that finance offer?

  • These offers are for selected new Nissan models only.
  • The offers listed on the Nissan website are only examples, and you are entitled to adjust the deposit and term to suit your own needs (within limits).
  • Cars have to be ordered and delivered by 2 April 2018.
  • The finance offer is provided through Nissan dealers by Nissan Finance. If a dealer offers you a finance deal that does not match these details or from another lender, it is not part of this offer.
  • A 0% APR offer means that you should pay absolutely no interest or fees over the course of the agreement (although penalty fees may still apply).
  • The 3.49% APR is a representative rate, which means that you may not be offered that rate depending on your circumstances but at least 51% of customers must be offered it.
  • The example offers have an annual mileage allowance of 10,000 miles. This is a realistic allowance for most UK buyers, but you should ensure that the allowance on your finance agreement is realistic to your needs.
  • The excess mileage charge for this offer is 8p/mile, which works out to £80 per 1,000 miles that you exceed your allowance over the life of the agreement.
  • The finance offers are not available in conjunction with any other offer, although you are still free to negotiate the best possible price for the car with your dealer.

As with any car purchase, work out your budget before you visit the showroom and don’t be persuaded to go beyond it – regardless of what the smiling sales executive suggests. They don’t have your best interests at heart, but The Car Expert does!
